Diy coffee mug

Saw this video thought why not give it a shot. Thought about it some more and came up with diy coffee mug since I can't find decal paper but online. This picture is a mock up but you get the idea. I am hoping that clear shelf liner will work then that way I will not have seams. Then seal it.  All I can do is try.

It has been a while

But I did a wash and go. I diffused it to about 75% dry put it in a pineapple and put my bonnet on. Watch Natural metra on you tube. I watched her and immediately washed my hair and you know how much I hate to wash my hair. I used leave in conditioner then shingled in black gel diffused it on low.

Bonnet Adventures

Tanya Walters in the house of style group on Facebook told me how she made her bonnets because mines are always too small. I made a  35" or so I think. I went 17.5" ( half of 35)  all the way around. I got that big booger. I tried 22" and 25" the last one was the winner. I found making the casing a little difficult a lady in the group said she does bias binding and I just happened to have some bias tape and a bias tape foot I have been itching to use!

Creatively Chic all week

I have worn a skirt everyday this week and they all were made by me!   Go me! This skirt was a blanket I found at good will paired with a v neck tee from Walmart and grey sneaker wedges. Not really sure about the sneakers and a maxi skirt.

Weekend Sewing

I am supposed to have these skirts done a while ago. I am so glad my friends are patient. While making their skirts I had to make me one too. The blue one is repeat business I mentioned that earlier. The floral one is a birthday gift. I need to make another one because I inserted the zipper crooked. But I will rock it. The black one has a faux leather waistband a scrap from my faux leather joggers.
