Mum sewed me a travel bag!

I'd begged my mom to sew me an Amy Butler Weekender Travel Bag made from the gray Tulip print in my new fabric line. I wanted the bag quite badly, but there was no way I was going to attempt that job myself. I'd read it's a doozy, and Mum concurred. But of course she did a flawless job. Look at that perfectly matched pattern on the front pocket. The lining is the yellow Skiff print. $4 Tee + $1 Dollar Store Towel = Fabulous Anthro-inspired Shirt!! <div class="greet_block wpgb_cornered wpgb_shadowed"><div class="greet_text"><div class="greet_image"><img src=" alt="WP Greet Box icon"/></div>Thanks for coming by!

Anthro Limitless Strands Necklace

Have you started? I will confess I have not. But I have been talking about starting. Does that count? I have been browsing online though - and of course I inevitably wandered over to Anthro. At the risk of sounding like a broken record, I absolutely fell in love with this necklace. I thought I’d help us both out by creating a knockoff – you can never have too many options for Christmas ideas right? Here’s my version . . . Mine is a little less “strandy” than theirs but that was intentional. Here’s what you’ll need to create this cutie . . . 1 1/2″ Wide Ribbon – 3 1/4 yardsStringing CordSmall Glass BeadsLarge Round Beads – 5/8″ (any type)Crimp Beads – 20Jump Rings – 6Thread Start by stringing your beads.

Thread a crimp bead onto the cord and loop the end around a jump ring, then thread the cord back through the crimp bead. Thread beads onto the cording – it will help control the cording if you thread the loose end through a needle. Press the strips lightly. Shirt Refashion.

If I mess it up then no big deal, it's only $3, if I don't mess it up then I have a super cute shirt! And I must say that it turned out great!!! It's so comfy and perfect for summer! I have a serious problem. Ruffles... Just like the tutorial, I didn't finish the sleeves. If you're looking for an easy refashion, find a long sleeve shirt and give this a try!!
