DIY T-Shirt Cutting

So I saw these new trending DIY shirt cuttings in facebook and pinterest. I also saw some of my gym mates wearing it so I decided to create one myself. I looked some shirts in my closet but most of them we’re my favorites, coz you know I am a t-shirt person but ofcourse when it comes to working out in the gym, t-shirt is my least favorite to wear. First of all it’s not comfortable and it’s going to be hot once you’re body is all worked out. Luckily I got this free shirt from one of the fair downtown last week. It’s black and the design is awesome too! So here’s what I’ve come up with ….

From Tshirt to racerback top!

My First Crochet Stuff Toy – “Creeper”

My kids are so crazy about MINECRAFT. They saw this creeper stuff toy in Barnes and Nobles and asking their Dad if they can buy it unfortunately, the Dad didn’t approved but bought books about minecraft instead. So, I figured it’s just bunch of squares so I tried making one and below are some photos of the finished product.

My kids loved it very much, I asked them to just take turn and share but it didn’t work for so now I am working with another one but instead of green, my daughter liked it to be PINK. I am actually excited and can’t wait  to see the finished product. Will post the picture soon!

Crochet Mickeymouse Hat and Bag Project

Atlast after long months, I finally started crocheting again. I was busy with our garden these past few months so I am not in the mood for crochet. Recently, I have to stop gardening, not because I’m done, but because I don’t have enough resources anymore. (hahaha). So no other thing to do but to go back to crocheting for the meantime and here’s what I made so far….

Mickey Mouse Hat with ear Flap 

A customer ordered this for a 2 year old boy but his size is like my 7 year old boy. And that explains why this hat fits on me.

10550507_668268266598113_1194016682_o

Here’s another oner project I finished after the mickeymouse hat. Black and yellow bag inspired from the one I saw in one of the crocheting group I am in. I always wanted to do  some fashionable bag  like this so I am happy I finally made one! It’s supposed to be mine but the daughter said she like it so now I think I have to make another one.

It’s fun to crochet, but it’s kind of addictive coz once I get started, I won’t stop until I get bored. So now, I am working on another project that I haven’t done before. I am excited to show it to you guys but I won’t tell you yet what is it (just incase I fail).

18-24 months 18 inches/46 cm 17 inches/ 43.5 cm 5.75 – 6 inches/15 – 16 cm 7.25 inches/19 cm
2-5 years 18 – 19 inches/46 – 48.5 cm 17 – 18 inches/43.5 – 46 cm 6 – 6.25/16 cm 7.25 – 7.5 inches/ 19 cm
Child 19 – 20 inches/48.5 – 51 cm 18 – 19 inches/46 – 48.5 cm 6.25 – 6.5 inches/16 cm – 17 cm 7.75 – 8.0 inches/20 cm
Teen 20 – 21 inches/51 – 53.5 cm 19 – 20 inches/48.5 – 51 cm 6.5 – 6.75 inches/17 8.0 – 8.5 inches/20 – 22 cm
Adult Woman 22 inches/56 cm 21 inches/53.5 cm 7 – 7.5 inches/18 – 19 cm 8.75 – 9 inches/23 cm
Adult Man 23 inches/ 59 cm 22 inches/56 cm 7.5 – 8 inches/19 – 20 cm 9.25 – 9.50/23 ½ cm

Head circumference 22 : 3.14 = 7.00 inches. Now you know your circle needs to be 7 inches. To get the correct height (from top of crown to bottom of the ear) you divide your circumference by 10 and multiply this number times 4.

Head circumference 22 : 10 = 2.2 x 4 = 8.8. So the hat height should be 8.8 inches. Hats are generally made about an inch smaller in circumference than the circumference of the head. This keeps the hat fitting snug and to keeps it from falling off. Most patterns generally have about an inch stretch to them.

DIY Picture Frame

As a  Disney Movie Club member, I got 4 different Lithographs as a reward when we bought Tinker Bell and the Pirate Fairy and Frozen Blurays. It’s 8 by 10 size and will make a cute decor in Kid’s Playroo but Elisha wanted it her room instead. So I thought of sticking it on her wall with sticky tact but it looks bare so I told her I will buy frames first. Few weeks later, lithographs have been sitting in my artroom coz Im prioritizing the things that are important first then I finallyI came up with an idea  this morning that saved me some money.

I remember making the same kind when I was in highschool. I can’t afford to buy a frame so I made one for myself that time.I love how things I created before are getting back to me little by little. Reminding me how I can make stuff without spending too much and  satisfy you with an awesome outcome at the same time.  I love how my resourcefulness kicks in when I need it!  So, let me share this simple project …enjoy!

Materials :

1. Wall Sticker (or any kind of paper you have or even fabric (gift wrapper, old clothes, etc)

2. Cardboard or old boxes

3. gluestick

4. Ribbon or Yarn (or whatever is availble for hanging or you can simply just stick in in the wall without it. Elisha’s theme is more like girly with bows so most of her decors have bows in it)

5. Ruler  and 6. Board Paper (with a size of the frame you’re creating for the base)

10377705_635712003187073_1895058840_o

Procedure:

1. Cut your cardboard in whatever size you want that fits the picture you’re going to put.

2. Wrap the cut out boards with your chosen wrapper ( I used Wall Paper Sticker)

3. Lay the picture on the paper board. I used folder because I don’t have any board paper that is bigger that 8 by 10 picture.

4Position the cut out board as a frame and glue them onto the paper.

5. Lastly, attach the ribbon between the base and the frame so it won’t be visible from the back.

And voila!!! I made my daughter very happy for having an instant frame that matches her Bedroom theme…  Zebra and Pink!

10376440_635911583167115_1722112692_oThe frame looks lovely in her room. I will finish the other two lithograps next time,

DIY Painted Flower Pot

 

I have pending projects I needed to finish in my porch but It’s been raining for 2 days in a row and I missed gardening already. I tried going out when the rain stopped but I cannot resist the cold weather so went back in and think of something to do and came up with painting idea after all my house chores for the day.

DIY Family Tree Hand Paint

I have been planning to make a Family Tree but didn’t have any idea what kind so I looked up on Pinterest and saw a lot of awesome ideas. There are so many stuff to choose from but I chose to do an easy and simple idea  – a Black and White Family Tree Hand Paint inspired.  Here’s how to make one….

Materials:    Canvas (whatever size you prefer), Black and White Paint, Paint Brush (big and small), Pencil and    ofcourse, your FAMILY’s hand prints.

fam tree2

How To:

 Paint your canvas BLACK all over, let it dry for a few minutes.

Once paint is dry, draft your Tree and start painting it with WHITE PAINT. (I added some leaves on top since we’re only four in our family and it wont look good if there’s only 4 hand prints.)

After the tree trunk is done, you can now start taking each of family members’ hand print.

fam tree3

No Names

Another option is to put your initials on each hand but my kids have the same initial so I decided to just put our names. fam tree

With Names

Folding Chair Make Over

And another product of boredom kicked in me!  And yes, another make over!

I have these four folding chairs sitting in our garage for a month now I guess. These came with the patio furniture our friend gave to us. My husband asked me to check which one we can salvage and dump the rest in the garbage but I said to myself, all of them are still usefull so I kept them all and did a “Spring” make over.

I thought I should share this idea so here I am showing you how I did the make over…

First I detached the rusty and rotten seat, watch out for the rusty screws attached to the chair, you don’t wanna get yourself some deadly tetanus.

After making sure it’s clean, Time to paint it! I wanted to use yellow but my husband wouldn’t like it colorful so…

DSC_1314

…I chose a different colorful part of the chair…

texture

 Spring-y look!

This is the hard part. Upholstery. It’s not just covering up the old one, I totally made a new seat for this.

Materials for the seat:

cardboard/flywood (use a thin flywood if you have)

foam (used the foam I have available) 

Fabric  of your own choosing

Double Polished Clear Vinyl (or just single polished, depends on what you like)

Staple gun with staples

Step 1. Cut the cardboard/flywood for the chair

Step 2. Glue or staple the foam onto the cardboard

Step 3. Fold fabric over the foam and cardboard, pull it tight but not so tight then staple

Step 4. (optional) wrap it with the double  polished crystal vinyl the same way like you did with the fabric.

chair

And there goes my Floral Folding Chair that I can temporarily use in our porch while  enjoying the view of the tulips in our lawn.
