I am loving upcycling old t-shirts. T-shirt material is so forgiving and it usually doesn’t need extra prep for the edges not to fray. I was inspired by Cheri from I am Momma Hear Me Roar to try my sewing skills at using t-shirts to make a layered dress for Kayla. I must say once you get the hang of it you can’t stop making them. They are so fun and embellishing makes them each unique.
I am not a huge seasonal decorator. Are you? I don’t have a lots of tchotchkes and other décor to just change it up every season. I am pretty simplistic in my approach to decorating. I usually decorate maybe one entryway table seasonally and maybe add in a few new pillows since I love making them. I decided to create a large DIY “LOVE” art for Valentine’s day. However, I used untraditional Valentine’s day colors so I can display it year round. It looks like a mini pallet.
How many of you received an Ipad for Christmas? Yes I have an Ipad. I think I have held it once a long time ago. The rest of the time my kids fight over joyfully play with it. Today I wanted to show you DIY girls, or those with a DIY hubby, a most likely free gift. If you are accustomed to DIY projects, you have probably amassed quite the stockpile of leftover wood. In August, I made some hanging beds for my son’s room and had leftover 2” x 12” wood from Lowes that I used for this project. Pssst…never throw out scraps.
