Long Sleeves To Bow Sleeve T-Shirt

Long Sleeves To Bow Sleeve T-Shirt
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! Before, a plain long sleeve Tee from Old Navy, that cost me a wopping $2.60 1. 2. This is what you'll end up with, don't throw anything out, nothing goes to waste on this project. Next you'll be making the bows, out of the sleeves (I know, genius right!) 3. Whole sleeve pinched together 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. The finished neck edge, it looks great doesn't it and to think it's just a piece of t-shirt scrap! 9.

T-Shirt Into A Skirt Tutorial July 28, 2010 I’m so excited to post about this! When I met Dana, I fell in love with the skirt she was wearing. She made it herself (obviously) and she showed us how simply she’d shirred the waistband. The next day, during the mystery workshop at Whipstitch, we were encouraged to use thrifted tees. Sixteen Point Star Quilt Block Pattern Examine the Sixteen Point Star quilt block and you'll discover several ways to assemble its patchwork. We'll sew the star quilt pattern using a combination of squares combined with half square triangle units (HST) and quick pieced no waste flying geese, making assembly a breeze. Breaking down the components in that way makes it easy to play with fabrics.

Make a t-shirt headband Of all the headbands I've made, I think this is my new favorite. It's like wearing sweats on your head, without the dumpy look. It's so cushy and comfortable! Flutter Sleeve I do not go sleeveless. Ever. I am lucky to be fairly strong, but my upper arms are not very well defined, so if I can avoid exposing them, I do. This is sometimes tricky, as there are many summer styles that are sleeveless. So, if there's a shirt or dress that I adore, but it comes sans sleeves, I add a flutter sleeve to cover the doughier parts of my upper body.

T-Shirt Turned Into Leggings Tutorial Thanks for visiting my blog! :) I am a young vintage-lover and I blog about things I make, wear, and like. You can find me in S. Cal where the weather is hot, and I knit like a fiend for the 5 weeks a year when it's sort of cold. Nested Churn Dash Churn dash fever has hit cyberspace so in celebration of the revival of this classic block I designed the nested churn dash. Start with a 4"x 4" block and progress to a 24" x 24" finished block. The beauty of this block is that you can stop at any layer to make a 4" x 4", 8" x 8", 16" x 16" or 24" x 24" block.

Make Your Own Tags & As I mentioned on Friday, my husband and I are celebrating a big anniversary this week. To mark the occasion, we’re taking our two teenagers and getting away from these grey clouds to spend a few days in sunny Las Vegas. If you don’t hear from me until Friday, that’s why. If you never hear from me again, I won big. Bra 2 Bustier Top I've spotted bralets and bustiers - cropped and otherwise - all over Topshop, Urban Outfitters, etc. I never could find one that 1) fit me well and 2) was in a print I liked. So I set out to make my own, using a strapless bra. I almost want to call this a "faux" bustier because it's so easy - it's really just fabric wrapped around a strapless bra, in a sense.

T-Shirt Refashion: Jersey Necklace Sometimes I feel like I ride on the coattails of creative people. Back in January as I was surfing my favorite blogs, I came across this post on Ultra Vroom about cardigans and fabric necklaces. I instantly fell in love and had to have a fabric necklace for my very own. I week or so later I remembered the large stash of white jersey hanging around the basement and hap-hazardly made my own version of Annie‘s fabric necklace. If I remember correctly, I wore that necklace for 4 days in a row. I didn’t really take it off until Penelope bumped her mouth on the table and bled all over me (Penelope is ok, BTW).

Stringing it Up with Tulip Fields! This is as far as we’ve gotten this morning –but what a fun morning it has been!

Our table for lunch – isn’t this a lovely view?
