When my kids were little they loved those little creepy critter bags you could get at the Dollar Store. So what do you do when they outgrow them? You make an Upcycled Necklace!
Being a military wife for over 17 yrs and being a mom for almost as long I've learned to craft on the cheap pretty well... I really wish I had thought of this when my kiddos were still little. I would so love to see these down with little baby foot and handprints.... Or sonogram pic...... Or family reunion pics..... Or a photocopied wedding invite! I'm really loving this tut!... If I do say so myself!
Sewing....sewing....sewing.... Trying to do a bunch of pillowcase top/dresses for the summer market here. I want to do a whole upcycled theme this year. I want to do some furniture, pet beds, clothing,bags, dolls,..... It's a wee bit ambitious but oh so much fun! And since I can't do one thing of each I'm feeling a wee bit overwhelmed but I'll get it done! The biggest thing, and a handy tip, is putting a sticky not on each project recording the price and the time spent creating each item. This way I'm not scrambling to remember, plus it is handy to bring to market on big ticket items for the more frugal shoppers.... It's a lot more polite then Saying "Well I'm glad you can make it yourself, after you stole my idea"... Yeah I have a short fuse...lol...
I'm going to do a giveaway once I hit 500 subscribers...... What am I going to give away? The matching high heel pin cushion to the one in my latest YouTube video! US residents only.... She's kinda heavy, sorry!
Finally figuring all this out. Wow am I a cyber idiot!
Welcome to my blog!
I hope you stick around and enjoy reading my adventures.
I'll be linking my "How To" YouTube videos here..... Don't laugh.... I'm new to that too!
