It was Friday night.
I was home alone.
No wait, Reed was with me.
And it wasn't night yet, it was late afternoon. It might even have been Thursday.
Ok, nevermind. The point is I was crafting! I had grabbed 3 t-shirts from my closet, my cutting mat and rotary cutter, my little LadyBug friend (does she need a name?), and sat on the floor with Reed to cut and sew.Then I cut the arms off each shirt. Snip, snip. And a straight line to cut off the collar of each. Snip. Snip. Snip.
Then Reed and I played dress up in all the "armpits" and "necks"!
Out comes the "pokies" and I pin down an edge on the front and back of each of the shirts, this is where the straps will be thread through.Stitch it closed, but don't let your three-year-old help otherwise the line will definitely not be straight (honestly though, it doesn't matter because the top gathers and you can't see the thread anyway).
Now you just need to thread through your choice of ribbon or tarn or whatever you want to be your straps. I don't think you can see it on the right side of the picture below, but it's one long piece of ribbon threaded through the front then the back and tied to it's other end. It creates adjustable straps for the shirt. I used the same ribbon for all three shirts because it was cheaper to buy in bulk :)
|I suppose I could have washed the mirror first. Yikes!|
Very cool! The Craft Station includes: LED light box with 12-by-12-inch scratch-resistant glass, stamp alignment guide, embossing stencil and tool, craft knife, five tracing and cutting templates, movable ruler arm with blade shuttle, and two replacement blades for the built-in blade shuttle. The LED light box with the scratch-resistant glass with cutter is my favorite, but I also really can't wait to use the embossing tool on a project. Fun, fun, fun!
Mike's Dad and Mom-Gumi sent me a $50 gift card to Joann's Fabrics. I feel so Blessed! What should I get? Maybe something to emboss or cut? YAY! Fun, fun, fun!
I was remembered and wished a Happy Birthday by so many wonderful friends and family, my day felt truly special. Hubby had to work all day, but when he got home he made us a nice dinner and gave me a delicious cake!
Fishing is a craft, right? :)
