Celebrate Pride Month With Rainbows

I'm happy to say that June is officially Pride Month, although people have been celebrating as such for much longer than it's been officially recognized by the white house. I'm hoping that we can see Same Sex Marriage recognized in Oregon this year, after the Supreme Court "refused to block gay marriages in Oregon." The legalese of that statement is ridiculous.

So it's time to pull out the rainbows and get crafty. Make yourself something to celebrate.

Rainbow Cake from Whisk KidThis cake would make me so happy. I wonder if I could convince J to make it for me. (He's a fantastic baker and went to school for it. My baking attempts often require his coaching.)

 

Rainbow Stache Bag Tutorial from Sew Can DoSew Can Do has an excellent tutorial that will walk you through the finer points of applique, in case you're relatively new to sewing. This is a pretty easy project with an awesome final product. Portland is all about the 'staches.

 

Rainbow Lace Tank from P.S. I Made ThisI had completely forgotten that spray fabric paint exists. But this is whole tutorial is just brilliant. I can imagine that once I started, I wouldn't stop. Nothing white would be safe.

 

DIY Rainbow Fascinator from Studio DIYStudio DIY has SO many rainbow crafty ideas that it was hard to pick just one. I think this would make an excellent headband to wear to the parade.

 

Rainbow Tie Dye Socks from I Love To CreateI am not the hugest fan of tie dye. It reminds me too much of summer camp and elementary school birthday parties. I am a big fan of tall socks and these are done so so well that I can't help but be in love with them.
