casual t-shirt day.

So this is it..not the best top but will do...
I wanted something simple but do the ruffles seem out of place? Or maybe I should add more?
And I'm always forgetting to take a before picture...I get in such a hurry to get it done that I forget but it looked exactly like this. These t shirts were on sale at Michaels for $2.50
So after trimming the sleeves, taking it in on the sides,

and gathering the ruffles (this is from the excess fabric taken in on the sides)

And here we are!

I don't think its cute, cute but it works for a casual t-shirt. So thanks for looking!



  1. I like it! I have some shirt refashions on my blog as well! It's like having a new shirt:) You did a fabulous job!!

  2. What a genius idea and a great way to upcycle!

    If you don't mind I would love it if you linked up to my weekly upcycled/stashbusting linky pary (Upcycled Awesome) at or use this link:

  3. Thanks for the idea. I work at a preschool and always look for cute/extremely inexpensive/often disposable tops to wear. 2.50 is certainly in my budget!

  4. I love ruffles, they add texture to otherwise dull outfits - can't get enough of them :) You're right, your top is cute, but not overly so, well done! I'm also doing a weekly linky party if you're keen in participating?

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.

You both need to find happiness in the things that you enjoy and since happiness is contagious it will rub off on your spouse. You also need to give your spouse space so they can enjoy things they love to do, its important to keep your identity in a marriage! You can still "find yourself" while being married. (I've been married over 20 years) You don't need to rely on people to make you happy! People will let you down, they have there own obligations they have to tend to so if you a

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
