Stuff I Made: DIY T-Shirt Scarf/ Necklace

Photo credit: Echoshirts.com

I was checking out one of my favorite blogs, More Design Please, when I happened upon this cute DIY project.  It’s completely No-Sew, and once I got the hang of it, took about ten seven minutes to finish.  I love DIY clothing, but am sometimes daunted by labor-intensive projects.  I also really loves scarves.  I did a quick inventory and I have around 20 in heavy rotation.  If you’re at all like me, this might be right up your alley!

Before you click the link for directions, just know that all you’ll need for this project is a T-shirt and scissors.  I made a couple of different ones with various t-shirt sizes.  I’d recommend a big shirt because you can get a larger scarf out of it.  Here are some photos of my project:

The Finished Product

I made another  color, too:

Now that we’re finally getting some fall weather here in Florida, these scarves will get lots of exposure!  Have fun trying this DIY project!  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day! xx

I Want This: DIY Hanging Bed

Hanging Bed by Life at Fire Lake Camp via More Design Please

When I was a tween back in the day (so far back there was no such word as ‘tween,’ I think) I was obsessed with hammocks.  I tried several times to fashion one out of sheets while holed up in my room.  It never worked.  I fell on my ass more than once.

Maybe that’s why I’m so crazy about this hanging bed- it’s got all the carefree swing of a hammock without that awkward feeling that you’re about to tumble onto the floor.  This is a hammock for grown-ups or something.  I dunno.  But I love it.  When I have a deck (or a sweet tree house) this is the first thing going up in there!

Isn’t this just the cutest?  I would love to give this project a shot one day- it really doesn’t look that hard.  What do you think of this DIY project?  Have a great day! xx
