I have these two t-shirts that I love.
First I got together an old pair of shoes that I wasn't too fond of, a bottle of Sobo fabric glue, a pair of scissors, and about a yard of fabric ( I used fabric from a long dress I had cut into a mini dress ). I wasn't really sure where to start. So I just started cutting random pieces of fabric and then sort of molding them to the shoe (cutting off excess as I went). I slathered the fabric glue straight onto the shoe in some cases, and sometimes onto the fabric, then gently pressed it down onto the shoe. I recommend a busy pattern like this one because you can't even tell that I layered different pieces of fabric almost like a paper mache.

So way way back, in June, I wrote this Studio Organization post, about starting the process of organizing my studio by cleaning out the closet full of junk. Well, it's September and...let's just say the closet is a work in progress. Some of the things that are taking up space in the closet are shirts that I never wear anymore. I realized I could repurpose them into something else!
I really love flokati rugs. I have two that are safely tucked away in my parents basement awaiting our reunion. When I learned that I would be having a child and building a nursery for him, I wanted a flokati. A gray one. Being a flokati snob though, I knew that I couldn’t afford the price tag ( ), and I knew that I would be too precious about the rug ( ).
If you've ever checked out my blog you'll know I love to change things up, my Hand-Me-Down Horror series has been all about buying yucky or just plain boring clothes and making them into something I'd be proud to wear. Hack off those sleeves, raise that hemline and bob's your uncle a cute custom piece, for pittence. This project is no different except I'm using a top that fits me and nothing goes to waste in this tutorial. So without further ado get your sewing needles and thread out and sharpen up those scissors!
I know what you’re thinking–you’re thinking, “t-shirt what ?” You heard me. I said, T-shirt yarn .
Elbow patches are one of my favorite trends this season! Last month, I shared how to hand print hearts on your jeans and we recieved many requests for a patch tutorial! I asked Amanda to show you how she would do it in this next feature....
This is my favorite thing to do with my little scraps, and since its Scrap Buster month over at Sew, Mama, Sew , I made a quick tutorial so you can make your own. This pillow cover is 16" square with an envelope back & the design possibilities are endless! I added some pillows I’ve previously made with this same method at the end of this post. Happy Sewing!
