D.I.Y: Recycled T-Shirt Scarf // Gettin' Crafty!

D.I.Y: Recycled T-Shirt Scarf // Gettin' Crafty!
D.I.Y: Recycled T-Shirt Scarf 1} Gather a few old t-shirts you don't wear anymore; thrift them or buy new -- but choose thin, soft (preferably worn out) t-shirts. Find two t-shirts of different colors that go well together. 2} Lay the shirt flat on the table or floor. 3} Cut 1 1/2 inch strips, remove the hemmed edges. Cut them as long as possible; I went from the bottom of the front of the shirt all the way to the end of the back on some pieces. 4} Cut off the sleeves of the shirt and save them for the end. 5} Organize the strips by length and gently pull on them. 6} NOW GET CREATIVE! 7} Tie together, trim ends, and wrap with the excess sleeve fabric you saved.

Flip-Flop Refashion: Part 1 (Braided Straps Summer is great. And warm. And full of outdoor activities and trips to the pool and random walks around the neighborhood. I love it. And my shoe of choice for these warmer months?? Repurposed DIY For Everyone! I've heard it from so many different people...and I've said it myself! "I wish I could..." I'd like to showcase some repurposed DIY designs I've collected that I think anyone and everyone could do - and do well! It won't be hard to find the supplies, either. Not only will you feel the elation of creation (hey, that rhymes!), you'll also be warm and fuzzy in your heart - knowing that you're helping to save the Earth, one repurposed project at a time.

How To: DIY Pom Poms In my previous nursery post I gave you a sneak peek at my latest DIY project. I wish I could say that I brainstormed these beautiful pom poms on my own, but I actually got the idea from a wedding blog. OnceWed.com features a DIY Wedding Pom Pom tutorial that I replicated (along with their color scheme - isn't it gorgeous and perfect for a little girl's room?). Since their instructions were a bit vague, I had to do a practice run and figure out some more specific details (size of lantern, size of circle cut outs, etc) on my own. Materials needed: Project 21 Week 23 – Crayon Alphabet I have been really excited about this project for a while, ever since I spotted it here. I thought this was the cutest idea, and immediately rushed off to research where I could find nice cheap shadow boxes and crayons. Flash forward a few weeks once I had assembled all my supplies, and this is what you get:

Revamp old T-shirt into Cute Bra Strap! Yay! I saw a lot of T-shirt yarn projects in the blog land recently, So, Why not?

Knotted Headband with tshirt yarn I think tshirt yarn is perfect for a knotted headband! I even have a quick video on how to form the knot. I think we've all seen that fun Knotted Headband by You Seriously Made That - - here's a refresher: Cami did a great job and I followed her tutorial for the "knot" part of the headband. For bhavya, with love My little sister has this empty wall in her apartment that she wanted something for. I know she loves bright colors (especially red) and I decided to put together something fun and whimsical that she can play around with. It took me only a couple of hours to run to the store and pick out the fabric, hoops and stretch and hang this lovely piece. And the best part is that she will have a ton of fun placing the hoops in a dozen different ways and finding out what works for her the best :)

DIY Circle Scarf If you’re one of those people who needs a last minute Christmas present, a friend’s birthday is coming up, or you just would love a circle scarf, this tutorial might be awesome for you! I was so surprised when I went into American Apparel and saw their circle scarves for $34! I decided to figure out how to make one for way less, because I knew it would be super easy. One thing different from the regular tutorials out there is that I doubled up the fabric on my scarves. First I did this because I was using a very thin polyester material, but then I continued using it even though I had a t-shirt material. I found that it gave the scarf a fullness and made it a lot thicker!

Mizzie Modifies: DIY Fashion – Add Pockets To a Dress or Skirt How much do you love a dress with pockets? I know I do. Sometimes I won’t even try on a dress if it doesn’t have pockets. This weird obsession of mine, that has kept me from buying some very cute summer dresses I might add, got me thinking. Felt Flower Pillow Tutorial I'm really in love with the versatility of felt at the moment, plus it's a fabric that's perfect for the fall season. So, I decided to combine felt with some of the Marimekko fabric that I recently purchased at Crate and Barrel Outlet and create a fun throw pillow.
