I love July!

Happy Birthday America! Isn't July such a fun month?? Steven and I both just love the 4th of July. We have been out of town and super crazy busy with life, so I need to catch up on my July crafts. 

For the 4th, I made this fun quilt! I have always wanted to make a flag quilt but I have always been to busy. After graduating and now only having one job, I finally had time to do it. Yay!! Honestly the hardest part about this was the math to keep everything proportianate. But I think that it turned out really well! I didn't take a picture of the back, but it is all squares of levi. 

Here are a couple of crafts from my friends that were too awesome not to share....

Amy made this INCREDIBLE wreath. She found everything at the DI or Dollar Store besides the wreath. For the wreath she went to Michaels (with a coupon!) and bought one of the wooden wreaths. She put everything on with a combination of wire and hot glue. Isn't it gorgeous??

Here is one that is from my friend Courtney. Her sister Kelsey made her this hat for her birthday. She had seen a hat like this that was name brand, and she figured that she could make it herself. I love this idea! She got a plain white hat and just colored in sharpie on the hat. This was the perfect 4th of July hat! And it made me excited because I thought of all the other things you could do with that idea. 

Hope you are all having a great summer!
