How To: Hair Bow/Headband Holder

My nieces, definitely girly girls, have now hair accessories than they will ever know what to do with. In my efforts to organize the world through crafts, I created this fabric-covered cylinder to perch headbands and contain hair ties and clips all at once without losing a whole bathroom drawer to these contents.

Here is a How To so you can create your own:

Empty, clean oatmeal or oats container
Fabric (about half of a 1/4 yard)
Spray adhesive
Hot glue gun
Stitch Witch

Start with a clean, empty oats container. Lay fabric on a flat surface, and measure and mark fabric one inch longer than the container and 1/2 wider than the container.

Take a length of Stitch Witch (or other iron on hem tape) the same length as the length of fabric. Fold over fabric 1/2 inch and 'hem' with an iron and Stitch Witch. Do the same on the opposite side. Repeat on the third side. You do not need to hem the fourth side, as it will not be shown.

Keeping the good side of the fabric facing down, apply spray adhesive on the entire piece of fabric. Align the one unfinished side of the fabric with the container and roll it to apply the fabric evenly. You have a minute before the glue dries to adjust the fabric.

Use the hot glue gun to secure the final seam of fabric to the container.To use, fill with hair accessories and loop headbands around the cylinder.

My mommy friends often ask me how to clean a Pack-n-Play. Likely because my toddler is all about making the biggest messes possible. After a few rounds of taking a damp rag to it like the manual suggests (HA), I thought, there has to be a more effective way to do this. Look at that dingy grossness:

So what does Pinterest suggest we use to clean, like, everything? Dawn and White Vinegar. I'll try anything once.

Here's how it went down:

1) Filled a bathtub with hot hot hot water, 1 c Dawn and 2 c White Vinegar.

2) Folded up the Pack-n-Play, shaking out any crumbs (there are always crumbs), and laid the whole thing down into the hot bath. I ran my hands along the netting and material to agitate any dirt and grime off of them.

3) Allow to soak about 15 minutes. To rinse, I drained out the tub water, then turned on the shower and hopped in to direct the shower head all over the Pack-n-Play to rinse well.

4) To dry, you can either lug it outside, pop it open (upside down) and allow to …
