I think it's a good week to tidy up a few things, and try that project that you've been putting off because of all the holiday "stuff."
I decided I was going to finally make that blue jean purse using the tops from some blue jeans that I've saved.
Our friend, Andy, uses braided inseams to make her straps, and I thought I'd try my hand at that. Some of those strips are thicker than the others! (If you're reading this Andy, I have that bucket of seams for you!!!!)
I'm still playing around with this project.
I've been wanting to try my hand at up-cycling a man's shirt to make a tunic. This is still in production!
I cut off the bottom of the shirt and flipped it around. I took off the top part of the collar, which I really like!
The sleeves were cut off right above the cuff opening. This makes a nice three quarter length sleeve. And, since there was a big ole ink stain at the pocket, I added an additional pocket to cover the spot.
I think it will be fun to wear with a turtle neck during these cold, bone-chilling days.
I don't know why I put off trying this.....
My cup cuffs were well received....and my DIL had a similar idea! I like her use of small elastic rather than using the thicker hair elastic. (Thanks for the tip!)
Thanksmas was a blast! There was lots of yummy food and lots of laughter. We had several games that were played during the day...one thing always leads to another.
I think Cupid had the best time of all!!! She decided to check out the pool cover thinking it was a puddle. She LOVED it. She rolled in the water and dashed from one side to the other. (I'm just glad I didn't have to ride four hours in a car with her afterwards!!!!)
So, as this year draws to a close, it's time to be thinking about what I'd like to accomplish in 2018.
I've been thinking about that.....have you?
Happy New Year!
