After seeing a “pin” on Pinterest of a Red, White and Blue Bandana Wreath, I thought it might be fun to make one! Then to take it a step further, I thought, why not use pieces of fabric to do wreath instead of the bandanas. Here are the results:
Using 7 Red, 7 White and 7 Blue bandanas. Each bandana was cut in half, so the 21 bandanas actually make 2 wreaths.
Using fat quarters – 4 of the dark and 7 of the white. Each piece was cut in half with the salvage on the ends. They were then tied to the wire wreath with the half lark knot as well. alternating w=two white and one black print.
Then a bow was added made of dog print ribbon.
GFWC – The General Federation of Women’s Clubs is an international women’s organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of other through volunteer service.
I have been honored to be a member of GFWC through my local clubs since 1985. Each April 24th we celebration the founding of our national organization which began in 1890.
Our motto is “Living the Volunter Spirit” which I have embroidered and used inside the cover of these notebooks.
GFWC clubs and clubwomen are the fabric that binds not only the Federation, but the communities in which they live and work. By Living the Volunteer Spirit, GFWC clubwomen transform lives each day, not simply with monetary donations, but with hands-on tangible projects that provide immediate impact.
Over the years I have been allowed to make items incorporating the GFWC logo. In honor of of Federation Day here are a few, starting with the GFWC Yard flag, displayed at the GFWC Headquarters in Washinton, DC after a snow storm.
Using GFWC T-shirts, these wall hangings and pillows were used as fundraising items at the GFWC International Convention in Memphis in 2015
This year at the 126th Annual Convention a basket of GFWC goodies will be donated once again for the silent auction.

Some trainers give their clients shirts to wear, and some clients give them back! I mean, why wear a shirt when you can turn it into a wall hanging?

Rice bags are a wonderful thing. They come in sets of two coordinating fabrics.
Keep one in the freezer, pop the other in the microwave for 30 seconds -3 minutes. Use the heated one until it cools – on your back, or where your muscles ache. Then use the cold one. Alternate back and forth. They measure about 20″ long and are filled with rice.
Available in assorted colors. $15.00 a set of two.
I love this design from Urban Threads ( urbanthreads.com). It was just yelling at me to make it into a pillow! So I made SEVERAL! They are embroidered on cotton dish towels, and made into pillows.
Each Pillow is unique and they are $15.00 each. Special orders accepted. Pick your “towel” color, and thread colors. Above: rainbow colors on white towel with black trim.Above: Pastel rainbow colors on towel with brown check trim.

I have been asked for some variations, so there is now a design with 5 women along with the first design which has 4 women.
The design was inspired by my long time GFWC (General Federation of Women’s Club) friends and mentors, so yes, GFWC Girlfriends was designed as well.
And the design looks great on Aprons!
Here are a few more color options.
Taking special t-shirts or other pieces of clothing and incorporating them into something new can be fun, and rewarding.
These wall hangings and pillows were made out of t-shirts that I had, and will be donated to the upcoming GFWC (General Federation of Woman’s Clubs – www.gfwc.org ) International Convention in Memphis, June 2015. (Please note these were new shirts used for these projects, but you can use a favorite shirt when making your own creation).
