I’m warning you right now………this woman is a show off. You’re going to want to hate her, but you’ll soon realize you can’t because she’s so dang sweet……UGH! All the people I feature inspire me somehow…..or they wouldn’t be featured……right? lil blue boo not only inspires me, but I now have a bruised chin from hitting it on my desk every time I come to another one of her amazing projects…. For crying in a bucket….. ….she made this belt from rice bags………….. who IS this woman? McGiver? She has fabulous TUTORIALS on her blog. She even has PDF patterns for all her other projects….Some look free, some you can buy at a reasonable price.
She loves using old t-shirts to make cloths for her daughter. This is such a hip way to recycle. You all know I love recycling. I can’t imagine what fun it would be shopping your local thrift store looking for old T’s to recycle. Take this women’s shirt…….she cut it up and made a darling dress for her daughter.Her little girl is dressed in custom designs just about every day.
Here’s an example and pattern she gives for a few pants she makes. Here’s one of the pair. Those are SO DANG CUTE!
And if it wasn’t enough to create custom pants from old t-shirts……let’s really show off and paint some flames. She downloaded a template which she also shares……of course……...because if she didn’t that would at least give us reason to not like her…..she also has a very detailed tutorial for those of us that want to try it. Because she’s nice.She is like Emeril……she has kicked up recycling a couple notches. BAM! Why just send your cardboard boxes out with the garbage or recycling? Why not save some of it and make amazing wall art that Andy Warhol would be proud of. And yes she has a details TUTORIAL…..because she’s nice like that.Now here are a couple of projects that take more patience and talent than I will ever have…….even if I practiced every day all day.
First……here’s the room she painted for her daughter. I know! You want to……you just can’t. She’s too nice.And this…..She made this belt from ribbon. It makes your head spin…….but of course she the most detailed of TUTORIALS that even I thought I could do it……….for maybe a second………because it also looks like you may need a masters in math……..and we all know I don’t have that…..although I do have to count in 8’s a lot for my job.Darling.
