No Sew , Drapped Vest: DIY









 This was one of my very first no sew,  Tee-shirt Tutorials that I wrote about 9 years ago.
The simplicity of this really surprises me every time I look at it.
 
I bought this 3X tee shirt for a different project. But...Yeah, as you can see that it was tossed in with the whites and a little bleach by accident.  No worries, I love how the pattern of the bleach turned out.   It gives it a nice little design. 
The reason I am re-doing this specific Project  is because my skills in blogging are just a little better than they use to be and I really just wanted to update the blog post and update the video into my YouTube with new music.

This makes a great little cover over a tank or tee shirt and I love the way it drapes in the front.
Happy Good Friday Everyone!

 My Little Easter DIY is not quite finished, it is still drying, so I was going to post it tomorrow.


Love to you all.

Felted Bunny Tea Towels DIY







 I have been  thinking about making  these little bunny Tea Towels for about 6 weeks.   .  If you have never done needle felting before, I highly suggest it. Not only is it very  satisfying , it is  pretty simple, plus I needed a break from the real world for just a moment.

 With only a few tools you can make so many cute little projects like decorating and repairing sweaters to making cute little felted animals and  I love this technique to decorate tea towels.  These would make the cutest  Easter gifts for friends and family.

Today I made some pretzel bread, cleaned the bathroom for the tenth time, washed and folded another load of laundry and I changed three different times  just to go to the porch and work on a project.



 Stay safe.
Love to you all

No Sew, Easy Face Mask :DIY



Wow!.. I can not believe how many awesome face mask tutorials are out there. People are so very creative.

 Desperate times calls for desperate measures.

I was asked by so many people about face masks and with the new suggestion that we wear them when we have to venture out of the house. Isn't  wonderful to know that you can make a mask  comfortable to wear, easy to wash and out of something you most likely already have.
 I did a little research on the best material to use if you do not have a surgical grade mask,
 
HERE are the top 3.
 
1. Vacuum cleaner bag
2.  Dish towel
3. A Cotton Tee shirt.

Look no further I have a tee shirt, I Create No Sew designs,. This project  seems like it is just up my ally.
I spent  the greater part of yesterday cutting , drawing and making all different kinds of shapes and sizes of masks. I wanted a mask that fit the face comfortably and no gaps. This shape was the one I landed on . This mask  is also two layers, another suggestion  they made.


I hope this helps some of you. Now you can make your own mask and feel just a tiny bit safer when you head out.

I would like to make one very strong suggestion.  When Washing these masks I would  hand wash them then dry them on a flat surface If you do this the shape of the mask will be preserved. .
 Make one in every color for every day.  


Stay Safe!
 Love to you all!

Twisty Tank:DIY

 How is everyone doing ? How are you holding up.?  I am basically staying very busy and maintaining a 8am -6pm work day.  The good news is  that it seems like my creativity is slowly coming back.   I was  creatively uninspired  over the last year.  I feel that  I shut the  creative part of my brain off because  of how much time I was putting into my other job  and believe me, my other job  took  A LOT  out of me.  I am welcoming the creative side of me  back,. I missed her so much...
    

 This was a shirt that I had in a pile of shirts that I wanted to re-do.  It was a mess up and I am starting this project from the point of the mess up. I hope that doesn't confuse you too much.


 Basically I cut off the collar and then  I cut the front part of the shirt into a low scoop.

To see how I transformed the rest of it.

One Shoulder, Tied Halter: DIY


 Old tee shirts are everywhere in this house. I have this huge  problem of always thinking I can perform, Shirt surgery  and that I can transform all TEE shirts into something new and exciting.
 
Please don't tell my husband,  I have even stolen a few of his tee shirts once in a while. "Whoo,Me? Never!"
.
This beautiful pink tee was one of the tee's that was in the  going bye, bye, bag  but I grabbed it and I tip toed it back in the house. This particular shirt was  heading out because of the little bit of bleach stain on the front and side. My plan is to turn that bleach stain into a design.

I have a couple of ideas for a couple of  side-tied tee shirts.
Here is the first one.  Stay tuned for the others....



Love to you all!

Easy, No Sew Halter: DIY









 What happens when your whole world gets turned Upside down, sideways, topsy -turvy,  inside-out
and completely and totally different in a matter of moments?.
What happens is, we as humans and survivors, we  adapt and move forward because we have to, there is no other option.

I sit here now and remember conversations I had so many times with my Grandmother Polly about her and her family during the great depression. I would ask her "What did you all do"  My Polly would say with a very strong voice  "We Were Fine!  We were Lucky, we had a farm and food.  We would feed as many people as we could. I never remember going hungry or not having the essentials like Food a Water, Shelter, and Transportation."  I admired her so much, such a strong woman. She lived to be 101, and lived on her own until the week she passed away. 

 I think of how much  we all have stepped away from being grateful for the essentials and wonderful   feeling of  gratefulness. I have been reminded of how truly grateful I  am over the last two weeks.
Grateful for my Family.
My Home.
My Friends.
My Life.

Starting April 4, just like 75% of the Country my whole company has been pretty much Furloughed.

 Now I am forced to really look at what I want to be for the rest of my life. Do I want to continue on the path I was on, Or.... do want to focus on what  I really want to do.
The trial is here. Maybe your trial is here too. Is it  time for you to  dream about who you really want to be.?   If this is the case make then make your Dreams BIG, create in your mind a vision of your future self.
 
Sometimes in the middle of a storm everything becomes crystal clear.  Do you all  know what I mean? Everything around you is spinning, churning, chaotic but you know in your soul, deep down in your soul,  you will be fine.  We will be fine.

We will remain strong for those of us who are sick.
We will help others that need help.
We will band together as the great humans that we are.
We will love one another and care for one another.
We will find our Grace,
We will find our Purpose.
We will be forever changed  as ONE  body of people.
 
Our World is Sick right now and needs Rest, lots of  tender loving care but most of all LOVE.

The Stress can be  so overwhelming that  it takes us to our knees. This will determine the type of person you will be in the future. This Moment in time will build in your character,  good or bad, and forge resilience in each and every one of us.

I have mourned so much over the last two weeks for family's, friends, nurses, military, first responders and I will continue to pray for all of them daily.

Now its time for me to create something that will relieve a little stress,  to hopefully help  in my own way.
Creation is the beginning of everything. It is what gives us life and purpose.

I will be working on my blog full time now, creating things and hopefully giving ideas to you  and a little stress relief from all of the bad news that is circling around us.

I really want to say a great big "Thank You!" to everyone for always being such  a positive influence in my life.

Together we  will get though this. I am here for you if you need to vent or just talk.

You can always reach me on  my Instagram. Just DM me whenever you are feel unsure or scared and please know you are not alone.
If I can give you a little peace I will. 

Now lets go make some easy summer halters out of just a plain o'l tee shirt....

Bunny Wreath, DIY


 I saw a couple of these cute little Bunny Wreath's but I could not  really find any easy tutorials.
This one I did is a  no sew and only took me a hour to create. Plus it is not permanent and you can recycle it to something completely different.
I also did a little Baby Bunny wreath and made a Video tutorial for that one  HERE.    

Like everyone else we are on a lock down for 15 days  most likely longer. 
  We are choosing to stay inside or around our house to stop the spread of this virus. I  do have to go to the store tomorrow, So I will have my list and will go and come right back home.

Praying for all of the Health care Professionals that caring for the sick and fighting for everyone.  
I am doing my best to stay busy and positive and create new things for others to do to take their minds off all of this even if it just for 30 minutes. 
Sending all of you love and prayers.
