5 Ways To Revamp A T-Shirt I have that classic womanly problem of a closet full of clothes but nothing to wear. Ever feel like everything you own is just kind of... meh? Never fear, there is still hope for your tired wardrobe! There is a solution, and it's called reconstructed clothing.

Faceted Pendant Lights – The Large Drum Shade So my large faceted sphere light has been attracting a lot of attention recently, and one reader asked how much light it cast and if they could use it to light a room. It struck me that maybe this was the perfect time to introduce this fun variation on my faceted lights, a drum shade! One thing I really love about the drum shade concept, is that no matter what you cover the shade with and how much light it might obstruct, you are still going to get plenty of light pouring out the top and the bottom of the fixture which can really light a room nicely. It works really well over a table or another space perfect for spot lighting, but it also bounces a ton of light off of a white ceiling which can really help spread the light around an entire room. For this shade I once again went back to my trusty Ikea Lobbo shade to use as a base, and then I made a piece of what you could call ‘fortune teller fabric.’ Ciao, Allison

Flossie teacakes: Alineado, bolsa con cremallera / compone el bolso tutorial This morning I was in a rush to make a simple lined make-up bag and had a quick look on the internet to see if I could easily find any dimensions for such a thing. I could find instructions on how to make a pouch, but none with dimensions and none with covered ends to the zips, which is how I like my zips to be finished. It now seems quite illogical to me that I decided that I simply must write a tutorial for such a thing when I was meant to be 'rushing'...but it seems that most things can wait. T-Shirt With Chains On Back A simple idea to customize a shirt without sewing and with very simple materials! I started with a XL man shirt, so result is pretty wide. But it is doable with smaller size if you want a fitting shirt. You gonna need: T-shirt, chain, eyelets, pliers and scissors
