And we are off!

Mama has been sewing the fancy tulle skirts for the adorable bridesmaids and flower girls.  As you can see, the tulle is attempting to swallow Mama.

I helped by making the slips.  The girls will be wearing leotards, ballet shoes and flower crowns.  One more day to the Big Reveal!  I am sure that Connie is a happy wreck.

UpcycleDIY of the Day – 2 in a row!!!

This sweatshirt started life with Phil less than 3 years ago as a beloved memory of Oregon beer – until it met a cruel fate at the hands (teeth) of Bunnicula (aka Sophie).

And now it is a pillow case:

I am still working out the kinks for making pillow cases from tshirts, but I hope to start offering them for sale in our ETSY shop soon.

I am going to attempt more regular blog posts again … Maybe this time, I can keep it up?

Meme is glaring from my latest UpcycleDIY of a sweater into a cat bed.  I saw the idea ages ago, and I finally did it today.  It took about 45 minutes of trial and error.  My serger may not have been the best choice of sewing machine, and it definitely is best with pillow stuffing not fabric scraps, which was my first attempt.  I will make another from t-shirt fabric, since I think the sweater might be too hot for summer.
