I'm a bit snowed in today, as Columbia got about 5 in. last night and I'm not very confident driving in snow. However...I planned for the lock-in by purchasing craft supplies to keep me busy. Here's some of the sewing/crafting I've done so far today:
I purchased a plain t-shirt from Target ($3.50 on clearance) and some ribbon at Michaels (buy 1 get 1 free) to add the ruffled neckline to the shirt. I'm imagining this shirt either with jeans and flats or dressing it up with a new black skirt I just got. (also on clearance....surprise, surprise)
I'm going through a ruffle craft phase right now and will post pictures of my other ruffle projects when they're finished.
I'm pretty darn excited about our new leather chair (that was FREE to us, btw) because we were always one sitting spot short in our living room. I sewed the pillow for about $10 and it only took five minutes of my time. This chair might cramp our little apartment living room, but since we're expecting a new home soon, we couldn't pass up the deal!
I had this cute scrapbook paper I used for our new mail sorter and my cheap-o self couldn't waste the extra of the $0.29 piece of paper, so I covered a picture frame -- and since I love everything associated with monogramming, I added a cute H (scrapbook chipboard letter).
When making the pillow pictured above, I couldn't decide between two different fabrics, so I purchased both (remnants were 70% off at JoAnns). I did think of a great way to use it, though -- making a basket cover that will hold our ever-growing collection of magazines! The basket was 50% off at Michaels, too!
