Easy DIY Painted Baby Shirt

I use my Silhouette in a lot of my tutorials, but not everyone has a cutting machine. And a lot of my friends claim they are not crafty. So, being your frugal friend, I thought I'd show you all a super easy way to paint a shirt. You will need a t shirt stickers tape (I used washi) paint (I used fabric paint but acrylic would work, too) For the step by step, please check out my video tutorial! Whatcha Know, Mo? 10 Ways to Turn a Scarf into a Vest. When we stumbled across this gorgeous DVF scarf vest on Shopbop the other day, we were intimidated by the $295 price tag but super inspired by the design.

10 Ways to Turn a Scarf into a Vest

Not only do we have a surplus of colorfully patterned scarves, but vests happen to be one of the best ways to transition summer clothes into early autumn. So, instead of creating one way to turn a scarf into a vest, we created 10! Half of these how-tos involve a sewing machine or needle and thread, and the other half are created with a few clever knots. Here we go! 1. The contrast of a highly structured belt and flowing jersey knit makes for a gorgeous little piece. The first thing to do is cut off the buckle or d-ring at the end of your belt and sew off the end. 2.

We promise, you will use this one more than you think. It works for just about any long scarf. 3. The steps for this are in the title! Take two summery silk scarves. 4.

Upcycle Style: Braided T-shirt Rug

This Braided T-shirt Rug ticks all the boxes, so when I spotted a circular rug made by Sewing For Life on Pinterest, I was itching to start on my own immediately. Here’s why…Declutter – I’d been hounding Mr Man to clear out some of his old t-shirts that he no longer wears, the bottom actually fell out of his t-shirt draw from the weight of all the excess clothing! Upcycle – Most of said t-shirts were well past their use by date with most of them having holes, stretching or stains, so charity donation was not an option.
