I hadn't thought about it beaching out Sad  Luckily my door is positioned so that it doesn't get much sunlight so hopefully it will hold out!
4  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / St. Patrick's Day garter flask on: March 20, 2012 06:02:26 PM
The night before St. Patrick's Day my husband mentions how cool he thinks garter flasks are.  This gets me thinking, hey, I bet I could do that!
I had some pretty cool green fabric with a celtic knot-ish design that I bought for no other reason than I thought it was cool so I was excited to get to use it!  I had some scrap 3/4 inch elastic and some velcro so I was set to go, without having to buy anything!
First, I got to work on the garter.  I measured my thigh and cut the elastic so the garter would fit snugly.  Then I cut the fabric twice as long so it would gather, then sewed it to make a sleeve around the elastic.  Then I cut another piece of fabric that I wanted to turn into a ruffle.  I gathered one end and then sewed it to the other piece that was around the elastic.  Then I sewed the ends together to make it into a circle.  That was the garter!
Now, to add a flask pocket.  I took the flask that I wanted and cut out fabric to make a pocket.  Then I hemmed it all.  I added two little straps to go over the top to help keep it in place.  Badabing, flask pocket!
Then to attach the pocket to the garter, I used some adhesive velcro.  I also used adhesive velcro to attach the straps that go over the top.  I'll probably go back and sew it together but I was trying to throw this together at the last minute.
Needless to say, the flask and garter held up all St. Patrick's Day without an incident.  I'm pretty excited that it turned out so well!
Oh, the little shot glass is just attached through the straps  but I ended up not wearing it because it caused a bulged on my thigh.  It might work with a different outfit, but not this year!
Yeah, I know the thread isn't the best match, but I was using what I had on hand.  I wish I would have taken progress shots, but I really didn't expect it to turn out so wel!
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Flip Flop Wreath on: March 20, 2012 05:47:29 PM
I love Pinterest!  I got this idea from there.
I bought 4 pairs of kid's flip flops from the Dollar Tree, hot glued them together, then tied a ribbon at the top for a hanger.  I added a felt flower that I had left over from another project but I think I'll add some more embellishments before I hang it up this summer.
Just a tip, you'll want to only use all left foot or right foot sandals when assembling your wreath so you'll actually make 2 wreaths! Pretty great deal to get 2 wreaths for about $5 in materials.
6  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General / Spring/Summer Wreath on: March 20, 2012 05:42:56 PM
So, I'm on spring break and finally have time to do some crafty-type stuff so after reviewing Pinterest for all the things I've been dreaming of doing, I hit Hobby Lobby and Dollar Tree for materials.  I went in with one project in mind and came out with materials for something different, but, in my opinion, better.
I took a dollar tree wicker wreath and wrapped it with 2 peacock blue feather boas from Hobby Lobby (40% off!), using hot glue to secure them.  I then glued on some felt flowers from HL and butterfly pins from DT.  I tied a ribbon around the top to use as a hanger. 
Badabing, badaboom, a wreath for less than $10 that will keep my door looking bright this spring!
