Gettin' crafty...again!

I just love it when I see an idea that popped into my head, but not yet my needle and thread, is posted out there in the blogosphere.; it's a total "ah-ha" moment for me! Here are 3 projects I've recently crafted and seen in various forms on other blogs. Time to jump on board girls! Get crafty and make something "one-of-a-kind" for yourselves!

This ruffle tee was made from a $2.74 Old Navy clearance tee and a funky striped turtleneck from Target's clearance rack. I love it when you can repurpose one shirt into another. I even have extra to make a striped knit twirly skirt for my of these days.

Another Target clearance tee (actually 2) turned into a rosette shirt:

I am loving all the variations of bib necklaces out there, that I just had to do one myself. Thanks to JoAnn fabrics and a funky thrift store picture frame with houndstooth rosettes on it, I now have one too! It only cost $4 to make!


  1. So glad you found my Texas-Blogging Gals! Will enjoy staying in touch.

    Come over to my personal blog, too, real soon!!

  2. Ok... lets discuss this. I would make that wonderful, cute, crafty stuff... if I could. :o) Unfortunately other than not having a sewing machine,(which is probably a good thing) I have no vision for it. I just cant visualize the final product, even though I wish i could. This is what I have you for. :o)

  3. I love that purple shirt! They all turned out great!

  4. What cute stuff! I just came over from the Texas Blogging gals. Hope you don't mind if I start copying your ideas!
