More Football Crafts {I told you I love football season}!

Betsy, a good girlfriend of mine from high school lives just a few houses down from me.  You may remember when I first got my sewing machine for Mother’s Day this year, I whipped up a few pillows.  Betsy immediately commissioned me to make some spring pillows for her front porch.  I’ve made her a couple sets of pillows so far and she has loved them!

Now that it is football season and I have been busy crafting my Gator stuff, Betsy has asked me to make her a few FSU things.  I’m telling you, it’s hard being a Gator in Seminole country!  But I don’t mind.  She knew she wanted an FSU rag wreath and some FSU pillows.  A couple trips to JoAnn’s later and here’s what I whipped up…..

This wreath is so super cute!  I have made a few fabric rag wreaths for various holidays, but our other girlfriend in the neighborhood made an FSU one like this so Bets knew that’s what she wanted!  I used one of the 3-tier wire wreath forms from Hobby Lobby.  I only tied the fabric strips on the first and last ring.  Make sense?  It’s really full and really didn’t take too long to make.  

Now for my favorite!  The pillows!  I am in love with how these turned out, despite the colors!  Winking smile

I. Love. Them!  I followed this tutorial and they were so super easy!!

So that’s it!  I’m off to make some Fall pillows for my front porch!

Do you have a favorite football team?  Have you made any crafts to show your team spirit?  I’d love for you to share!!

Have a great day!
