5 Best DIY Projects for Pride 2018

June is Pride month and since the Portland parade is this weekend, we thought we would share five of our favorite rainbow projects! 

It wouldn't be a celebration without a flag or pennant! Hallmark has a great tutorial on their blog. Click the picture for everything you need to know.  

Felt is the perfect choice for this project. With just the right amount of bend and sturdy. You can wave your flag all day and know it will hold up through it all! 

Over at We Are Scout we found the perfect pillow to show your pride and get comfy at the same time. Click on the picture to find a full Tutorial! 

The possibilities are endless for which fabrics would work best. We can just imagine how cute it would be using some of our new Riley Blake Blenders. 

Of course any list of rainbow DIY wouldn't be complete without a classic tie-dye project! Our friends over at RIT are the experts on all things dye. Click on the picture to see all fo their tips, tricks, and techniques. 

Get creative and think outside the t-shirt! Tie Dye sheets, socks, napkins, pants, you name it! You can find our wide selection Rit Dye in our Retail Store

If something a little less groovy is more your speed, this Rainbow Applique shirt is the perfect way to display your pride right on your chest. Click the image to find the amazing tutorial from Alice&Lois: 

Again, you can use any fabric to make this eye catching applique, but we think it would dazzling in our new rainbow batiks! Use Kona solids from Robert Kaufman for a more classic look. 

Does it get any more Portland than a crocheted rainbow coffee cup cozy? In just 30 minutes you can be the buzz of the artisinal coffee shop and protect your hand from the heat of your reusable mug at the same time! ....Ok that is too Portland even for us, but you get the idea! Click the image and head on over to A Creative Being for the full tutorial from Wink!
