"Re-Style #56 Heart Shaped, Off the Shoulder Tee-Shirt I hope I am finding all of you well this week. In honor of Heart Day, I wanted to do a Heart, off the shoulder Tee-shirt. Now, I am going to be honest with you, this was not a super easy 5 minute shirt, but it was not the hardest either. If you have a sewing machine and an hour, you could most definitely make this.

Inside your heart, draw lines 3/4 of an inch apart. carefully cut the lines inside the heart. Turn it back right side out and sew around the edge of the heart. Anne

Recipes, Kids Crafts, DIY Ideas, Tutorials And More crafterhours: Tee to Tank: A Tutorial by Jen from Upcycled Education This is one of my favorite t-shirt refashions of all time. For a number of reasons. First, let me tell you that this t-shirt to tank refashion wasn’t my idea. Jen posted this on her facebook page and I jumped at the chance to have a crafty morning with her and watch her make it. Jen blogs at Upcycled Education– a blog I recommend you peruse, especially if you’re an educator– formally or informally. She’s full of good ideas and fun finds and her enthusiasm is catchy. Second, it is soooo quick and easy that it takes less than half an hour. Third, it uses tees you probably already have a million of and don’t enjoy the fit of but have a hard time discarding. Fourth, this t-shirt to tank only requires a tee, scissors and thread. So my girls and I spent a lovely morning yesterday with Jen and her daughter. Are you ready to see? One of Jen’s tips for this project is that you can use a tee that already fits well. In step 1 you’re making five cuts. Steps 2, 3 and 4 are pretty straightforward.

plat a gateaux D.I.Y Il était temps que je dépoussière ma boite à couture ! Ça faisait un bon ptit moment que je ne vous avais pas proposé un tuto créatif ! Je profite donc des fêtes approchant pour vous donner des idées pour composer votre propre sac de soirée ! La proie de ce diy ? Un sac minaudière trouvé sur le site SoJeans... et donc vous vous en doutez... en jean ! J'adore ce style de sac un brin rétro modernisé avec son revêtement jean. Pour la petite histoire, dixit Wikipédia, elle a fait son apparition dans les années 30, il s'agissait d'une petite boite couverte de joaillerie inventée par Van Cleef & Arpels. J'ai donc choisi de customiser une face avec des perles et strass. Il y a de multiples possibilités, j 'ai également hésité à peindre une face avec une colle pailleté mais il a fallut faire un choix et j'avais peur du côté too much. Profitez-en , je viens de voir que le sac minaudière est en promo sur le site SoJean ( -20%) , il est donc à 23,20€, raisonnable !

By Wilma « By Wilma DIY Macrame Bracelet Growing up by the beach in Southern California, the ability to knot a macrame bracelet was practically a right of passage. Although those days are long behind us, we’ve never forgotten the ever-so-simple square knot technique. This time, however, we’re replacing hemp and wooden beads for more updated elements like colorful nylon cord and glossy metal charms. Happy knotting! You’ll need: Start by cutting the knotting cord into two 30 inch, two 20 inch and one 10 inch lengths. Center the 30 inch cord under the two middle strands. Pull tightly and slide the knot up to the top. Finish the 2nd half of the square knot by folding the left cord over the middle strands and under the right cord. Pull tightly and repeat the steps – left, right, left, right . . . To finish the knots, thread one of the cords onto a needle and sew up the center of 3-4 knots along the backside. Repeat the same step on the other cord. After sewing up both knotting cords, trim away any excess.
