Simple Way to Lengthen Too-Short Sleeves

I’m one of those people that have long arms.  I love wearing long sleeves, especially since I love the fall and winter seasons.  I like for the sleeves to lay right on the top part of my hand.  However, today, I’m trying to lengthen an old shirt where the sleeves have gotten too-short (probably from washing).  I found a simple way to lengthen the sleeves.  I’m so happy because this is one of my favorite long-sleeve t-shirts.  It has such {Read More}

How to Widen T-Shirt Neckline

How to Widen T-Shirt Neckline

One of the worst things about wearing a t-shirt is how tight the neckline feels.  I usually just cut them off.  I have so many t-shirts with the neck part cut off.  It usually leads to the neckline stretching out too wide over time.  So, today I am doing something a little different.  My goal is to secure the ends of the neckline so that it doesn’t stretch so out of shape.  Plus, I want it to look neater when {Read More}

Neat Way To Store Sewing Machine Bobbins

Lately, my sewing machine bobbins have gotten out of hand.  I’ve tried to keep them neatly in my sewing basket, but they seem to unravel and end up all over the top tray of the sewing basket.  So, I went out to the fabric store to look for containers to hold my bobbins neatly.  I found a couple of containers at the fabric store.  However, they were $8 – $10 and did not contain the design or type of space {Read More}

Make Your Own Tutu

Make Your Own Tutu

I was in the mall shopping with my youngest daughter and her friends. They were looking for tutus.  Of course, we didn’t find any because I’m not quite sure where they are sold.  I think you can probably find them in a costume store.  I guess wearing tutus over leggings is a style for them.  What did I do? Made one.  How cute! Items Needed: Tulle Fabric (I used about 4.5 yards of material. Will depend on measurements of child.) {Read More}

Make Your Own Pencil Pouch

My oldest child needs an extra large pencil pouch for carrying her stuff to school.  The amount of supplies that are needed by kids today is so outrageous.  I don’t even try to purchase a small size pouch for her.  Normally, I would buy a money bag for her to use as a pouch.  However, this year, I decided to make one.  It turned out nicely.  It’s been awhile since I’ve messed with a zipper, but I made it work.  {Read More}

How To Repair Damaged Hooks On A Bra Strap

How many times has this happened to you? You take it out of the wash and it looks like this….damaged.  I always try to remember to hook the bra strap together before I wash it.  I also try to remember to put it in something like a mesh bag to keep it from being damaged. However, there are just some days that

Easy Way To Turn Regular Pot Holders Into Scented Pot Holders

My favorite spice scent is nutmeg.  I could smell it all day and never get tired of the scent.  It has such a relaxing scent.  Of course, I would look foolish smelling this spice all day.  So, I decided to turn one of my old pot holders into a scented pot holder.  That way, every time I take a hot pot or pan off the stove, I would be able to smell that wonderful scent.  I was in no mood {Read More}

Re-Purpose Worn Bath Towels Into Smaller Hand Towels

I love, love, love towels! Some people love shoes. Some people love purses.  But, I love towels.  I am that type of person that hates to throw away a towel unless it’s absolutely necessary.  Just because a towel gets old or worn does not mean that it has to be thrown away.  Normally, I

Love when I can throw a quick tote together.  Was headed to the beach on vacation and decided to throw together a quick tote.  Of course, it’s made without a pattern.  Sometimes, patterns have entirely too many directions.  So, throw
