Did I tell you men about my diy new Year’s Resolution? I can’t keep in mind if I put it down in composing here. It was to make utilize of my comprehensive craft library. I have at least 25 books on my shelf packed with stitching projects, innovative ideas, as well as even particular patterns to copy. I pledged to myself that this year, I would stop purchasing books in this genre, as well as begin utilizing them. as of April 23rd, I have made barely any type of progress.
I did effectively sew an simple skirt for Scarlett, according to the directions Cori showed us. And, influenced by numerous messages I’ve seen on other blogs, I have been wanting to make a pendant or scarf out of a tshirt for over a year.
One night, with a renewed interest for my craft book collection, I paged with P.S.– I Made This, a fashionista craft book with the subtitle “I see it. I like it. I make it.”
Then, instead of putting down the book as well as cutting up my t-shirt, I putzed around on the internet as well as discovered this video where the author, Erica Domesek demonstrates exactly how to a fringed scarf from a tshirt.
Although she as well as her job are adorable, when I started cutting, I ended up going in a different direction. I cut strips of tshirt, pulled on them to let the edges curl as well as then connected them together a bit randomly into a extremely long loop. I twisted the loop to make a pendant as well as then utilized much more bits of tshirt to tie the layers together.
I believe I like the results, however honestly, each time I wear it, I concern that it appears like I’m using a cloth around my neck! perhaps I requirement to stick with the scarf project.
If you browse Pinterest for “tshirt necklace”, you will discover 8 zillion gorgeous examples like the one below. I believe this job is worth experimenting with since a) a pendant fits everybody as well as makes your attire look much better b) it’s totally free as well as c) if you end up with a rag, you can just wipe up a spill.
