just add lace!

So it starts with a plain shirt that fits good!
this is a tshirt that I've had in my drawer for over a year..but I like the fit.
then you add lace! I love it! I want one in every color! I got the idea from  icandy handmade
She made this one in pink! I want to make another one in pink, yellow, turqoise ...etc.

I don't know how to fix that crease without unpicking the whole thing? I guess you would probably only see it in a picture because I'm standing still? I think I can live with it.
So I found the lace at Hancocks Fabric store for $1.25/yard and I needed a yard and a half. 
I definitely recommend using spray adhesive when putting it on your shirt. I don't know how I did it just by pinning it...well that is probably why I got that crease in my shirt.  So what I'm saying is...don't pin the lace to the top....use spray adhesive!  (Go to icandy handmade for the tutorial)
So here we are! Such a simple way to spruce up a shirt!
Now I want to go out and get more! I want one in every color!
Hope this makes you want to make one too! Happy Sewing!

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. 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
