old meets new

Category: DIY | October 20th, 2009

so I have a ton of random clothing articles that do not fit or just need some TLC. here are the lucky contestants this time….

what do you get when you mix an old shirt that is too short and an old but clean fitted bed sheet???
molly panda was curious too…

TADA!!! a lil cutting, some seaming, more cutting, seam ripping, more sewing…and there ya go. : ) I am in need of brushing up on my sewing skills. but this was fun, and I was super excited because the waste band of the fitted sheet was already done. I am all about the short cuts.

some more random fabric which made a lovely pocket and I even lined the bottom of the sheet with ribbon for fun!  : ) (and yes, it was fun. ha) threw in some lace to spice it up too.


I have more leftover fitted and flat sheets and tons of old shirts….hmmmm what to do next??

peace and love

meet betty! she’s a brightly colored, fun, and exciting…headband. : )

Autumn, over at Cinnamon Sticks, and I spent a lovely morning together with crafts and coffee. coffee makes crafting better.  we had our inspiration from another feather headband over at Craftstylish. but we decided to skip the sewing parts, and we did not have any buckram (still not sure what that even is). we used the oh so helpful felt as our platform. then glued on some feathers and a cool button or two or three and poof! you have a betty!

you can wear it like a traditional headband or if you are in a 20’s mood around the forehead. either way it looks fab!

this is clearly an every day accessory…clearly. be sure to check out Cinnamon Sticks to see her fun color scheme too! have a fabulous day!!!

peace and love
