I bought the Green Craft Magazine over a week ago with my 40% coupon at JoAnn’s. It was hidden under a bunch of other magazines so I was thrilled to find it. I couldn’t resist, especially after seeing it on so many other blogs. It’s right up my alley, with the whole green theme.
It inspired me to use two thrifted tshirts to make this polka-dot tote for my friend Alexandra. She’s been away with her family up in Oregon and I was so happy to see her, I showered her with gifts and yummy food. The bag? It’s double layered with reverse applique for the dots.
Here are some of my favorites from the magazine.
Since I had the sleeves left over from the thrifted tshirts, I decided to try making the tshirt necklaces. It’s soooo fun. I just cut several rings from the sleeve and gave them a good pull. It’s like magic. Perfectly tubular! I tied a bunch together and that’s it. I’m not sure If I could pull off wearing this, maybe with the right shirt? Hmmm.
