DIY “Drab to Fab” curtains

Hey guys,

Maybe I’m a little late on the fringe crush but the thing is…I saw so many inspirations for such a long time and wanted to make them all. Look at these:

Back in April, I saw this post from Love Maegan. I even quote her as the title of this post :-).

I got this awesome tassel trim here. I got 5 yards but after the project, I still have about a yard and a half left.

I just took off my curtains, pin the trim on…

Run them through my sewing machine using red thread on top and black on the bottom to match

Tada…:-)

One fringe related project down but there will be a bunch more to go.

DIY Hair towel inspired by the Turbie Twist

I have just discovered this product, the Turbie Twist at my local drug store. I loved the idea because up until recently , I always wrapped a big towel over my head after the shower. I would go on to do other things before taking the towel off and let my hair air-dry or the towel would fall off on it own, many times. My neck would get tired from the weight of the towel, blah blah blah…:-) This is different, it stays nicely and securely on my head and because the towel is small, my neck would never get tired. The Turbie Twist is $6.99 at my drug store. 

So, because I can’t get enough of it, I tried making more…:)

Here is the template I created.

I used an old towel for this project, it’s already been used and washed many times so it’s perfectly soft and very absorbant.

I folded the towel in half, lengthwise and traced the pattern on to the towel

Took it to the machine and sewed along the marked line. I used black thread here so you can see but matching thread would be nice :-) oh,… and don’t forget to insert an elastic into the indicated spot. I actually used one of my elastic hair bands. The one where you get like a million in a pack at the drug store.  

Then I trimmed the excess away

All that left was to turn it inside out and we’re done :-)

Here is now you use it!  

I think this would make great Christmas gift. Try it!

DIY Circle Zip Earbud Pouch

Hey guys! 

I found this awesome tutorial from this blog a while back and finally got a chance to try it out for myself. If you check out Erin’s post, it has an excellent step by step instruction with pictures but I took my pictures anyways. Here they are…

I used Erin’s pattern. You should too if you want to make this. They’re perfect!

I skipped the topstitching at the end because I happened to like the way it looks without it.

If you haven’t noticed, I used my scrap fabric that’s left from this reupholstery project. I had to piece together a bunch of pieces to make the circles but it came out great anyways :-)

This would make great hand-made holiday gift, don’t you think!?

DIY Julius Caesar Halloween Costume

Some how I started with Hubbie’s costume :-) and here, my friends was how it all went…

I attached 2 XL t-shirts together and tried to use as much of the length as possible

Then, I attached the the gold trim around the hems. You can see all the supplies here.

I moved on to using 1/4 of the curtain panel 

Add gold trim to both ends of the curtain panel as well

Create some pleats 2/3 of the length  

The final steps are: attaching the panel to one shoulder, put the rope around the waist :-)…and then…

Made my Hubbie try it on…

…when he’d much rather be…a Ninja :-P

Halloween costumes

Hey guys, 

Happy weekend!

I wrote a post saying that I wanted to be Cleopatra for Halloween and some of you showed interest. I got some awesome encouragements and suggestions. Thank you!! :-). I also convinced my Hubbie to be Julius Caesar :-P

I used the following pics as my inspirations for my own costumes.

I found this old white beach cover up in my closet. I was about to cut the sleeves of some white t-shirt for the top part… 

…and this white knit top turned up :-)

For Hubbie’s costume, I used 2 extra large T shirts. These I also already have on hands.

I also searched my stash and found this fabric. My mother in law brought it to me at some point in the past. It’s some kind of upholstery fabric and it has some gold under tone. I would love for it to have more gold but I will make use of what I already have.  

I took Allie's advice and went to the Dollar Store and DII store to get a few things. I was actually disappointed as I couldn't find much, besides these:

- Some gold Christmas ribbon - 99 cents each

- Gold curtain tieback - $1.99

- 1 panel of curtain - $3.99

- More Christmas decorations :) - 99 cents each

Will show ya how things turn out next …
