WELCOME BACK TO PATRIOTIC WEEK AT MY WEEKLY HABIT!

You will find lots of DIY patriotic things to make and wear including t-shirts, shorts, dresses, necklaces, hair accessories, flip-flops, a dog collar and more! I hope you enjoy this 4th of July Wearables tutorials as much as I have!
NO SEW WAVING FLAG SHIRT
I love that this sweet shirt is “no sew”! She uses ricrac, ribbon, and hot glue to whip this shirt up in a snap!
BANDANNA FLAG T-SHIRT
Turn red, white and blue bandannas into this fun flag shirt using Heat n Bond. Great “no sew” option for boys!
4TH OF JULY STAR NECKLACE
Learn how to turn polymer clay, Mod Podge, and glitter into this unique and festive 4th of July necklace.
4TH OF JULY STATEMENT NECKLACE
See how to creatively combine old and new elements using ribbon in this red, white and blue statement necklace tutorial.
SHORTS FOR THE 4TH OF JULY
Use fabric paint to turn plain shorts into patriotic pants!
Learn how to make this tutu in less than an hour for about $7 (with enough supplies left over for three more!)
RUFFLED AMERICANA DRESS
Use your sewing machine to turn a Walmart dress, red interlocking jersey fabric, and a white tee into this sweet ruffled dress.
This one requires some skill on the sewing machine. If you are an experienced sewer, try out this adorable red, white and blue skirt tutorial.
FELT HAIR CLIPS
Jessica at Cutesy Crafts uses a die cutter to cut the shape of the felt for these hair clips, but you could cut out a similar shape by hand as well. These look nice on a clip and would also look great attached to a headband.
MULTI-RIBBON HAIR BOWS
Learn the technique that will have you making these bows in about 12 minutes a piece.
DIY RIBBON FLIP FLOPS
You can make these easy flip-flops with the kids for under $5. All they have to be able to do is tie a knot! My daughter had fun making a similar pair using fabric strips last summer.
Have fun making and then dressing up as Lady Liberty this Independence Day!
DOG NECKERCHIEF COLLAR
Don’t forget about the dogs this summer! I love when dogs wear bandannas! This neckerchief combines a bandanna and collar in one! For beginning sewers.
This last tutorial isn’t exactly a wearable, but I thought it was cute and wanted to share. Kids love having something to do and waving this wand while standing to wait for or watching the parade is just the ticket.
