Oy! I have sooo many scraps left over from my Halloween costume! To keep them out of the landfill, I’ve discovered another way to use the smallest of my scraps. :)
I found a fun tutorial on Lil Blue Boo on how to make T-shirt scrap bangles, and got to work.
First, I used my rotary cutter and cutting mat to slice up a bunch of 1″ strips.
Then, I put them in groups of 3 and braided them together.
Then, I sewed each end together and trimmed them. Next, I took another tiny scrap and tied it around where the ends meet on each of the bracelets. :)
My accessories aren’t the only new things in my life! :)
You’re looking at a 1988 VW Cabriolet. My Cabriolet. I saw it, fell in love, and the rest is history. :) The only prob is…it has a manual transmission…which I have never driven before. So yes…I bought a car that I can’t drive. A co-worker told me this was very bold (translation: stupid). :) Fella has been awesome about teaching me to drive it, and I almost have the hang of it!
