Guest Post- You Seriously Made That?

I am so excited to introduce you to Cami today. I found her blog less than a week ago, read the entire thing in one sitting, and then immediately emailed her because I wanted needed her on KC&A. She is witty, super friendly, and oh-so-crafty! She's got an incredible tutorial lined up for you, so I'll quit typing and let her take over.
---------------------------------------
My name is Cami I've got a problem
First of all,  I like to craft. A lot. I mean, a lot a lot. 
Secondly, I also lack the organizational skills that most people pick up in the 3rd grade (Which my husband could attest to).
and lastly, I have discovered a new love, which is my blog over at 
All these things combined make for a messy lively home, and sometimes a less than happy patient husband


I am a immature simple girl who loves a lot of things. 
I love my flannel "ugly jammies".
 I love waking my husband up at 2 am to tell him a funny joke
I love eating all of the Pringles in a can because I can't stop eating.
 I love melting gummy bears to the car dashboard. 
But most of all, I love creating....which is why my house routinely looks like Chernobyl. 

So check me out over at 
I swear, you will seriously love it! (Haha...get it??)

And now what all of you are waiting for...the tutorial!
Inspired by all of Amie's cute jewlery designs!

Triple Banded Bracelet

 Difficulty: Easy
Time: 20 minutes
Cost: less than a dollar
Fun-ness: ABSOLUTELY!!

Materials
Size J Crochet Hook
100% Cotton Yarn
Fabric of choice
Yarn Needle
Glue Gun

Directions
Step 1: Creating a Chain
Create a Slip Knot. Chain 70 (or 75 for a larger wrist) and tie off, leaving a 5 inch yarn tail. Fold into 3 parts, leaving one side a little longer than the others (this will be used for the loop in step 2)


Step 2: Creating a Loop
Thread your yarn needle onto your yarn tail. Sew the tail through all three strands multiple times to connect them and form your loop. Tie off. 


Step 3: Making the Rosette
Cut your fabric into a 1 inch by 8 inch strip. Twist the fabric into a tight strand, and then wrap into a rosette shape, hot gluing as you go. Hot glue the rosette onto a circular piece of felt




Step 4: Putting It Together
Using your glue gun, attach the center of the rosette onto the three loose strands (opposite of the loop). Make sure it is attached securely. 



And that's it!! You're done! Finito! Finished!
 And when someone comes asking, you can say 
"I seriously made that!"


Thanks again Amie for having me on your awesome blog! You are a rock star!!
