another turtleneck

What perfect timing..I made my turtleneck shirt then found this blog...Its all about tranforming clothes you already have into something you will love! Check out all the great links...Now, on with my turtleneck..


I always forget to take a before picture! this was another turtleneck that i bought for $2.99. I took this picture after i cut off the neck and sleeves (obviously) then I remembered to take a picture.
so then  you will see below are the sleeves...

 
I turned them inside out and cut off the seam of the arms.

Then I cut 2 strips at 1.5 width and started to gather it.
Then I strategically place it on the collar of the shirt..oh yeah, I cut it into a v-neck.
And here we are. After I sewed on the ruffles I cut 2 strips 3 inches wide right in the middle then you just tie it into a bow!

Pretty cute don't you think? I actually really love it! Not too bad for $2.99 and it only took about 45 mins to make.
Thanks for looking!

Get a Hobby!

Hobbies help you improve your mental health and well being because  you're engaging the creative network in your brain, you are challenging you mind and keeping it sharp. Its also a stress reduction. When you concentrate on your hobby it is clearing your mind of other distractions. It makes you happy! It makes you interesting! If you are married its important to have other things, separate things that make you happy.  Don't rely on your spouse to make you happy. You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse.

Your First Sewing Machine!

2020 has been a great year for sewing machine sales! Joanne's can't seem to keep them in stock. People making masks as well as others picking up new hobbies due to quarantine and with Christmas around the corner this might even be on your list! So are you looking to buy a sewing machine? If you are in the market for a new Sewing machine you might be a bit perplexed with all the different features. In fact sewing machines range from $100 up to..well there are some in the $12,000 range! So I'm going to keep it simple and share 3 key features to look for in your sewing machine investment. 1. Needle up/down feature : This means when you are sewing a project and you stop you can indicate that you want the needle down into the project so your fabric stays in place when you need to pivot or make adjustments to the fabric. 2. Automatic needle threader : this saves time (and frustration) by threading the needle for you. 3. Needle position right to left: This allows you to stitch
