L.O.V.E

Hi all,

I have been shopping a lot more lately and I picked up this LOVE tshirt. I think I have a thing for tee shirts – I do have a lot of them and I do feel comfortable in them as well ๐Ÿ™‚ I also picked up this leopard? skirt. I’m not really sure of the pattern on it but it’s a new favourite of mine ๐Ÿ™‚

LOVE

 

 

Leopard?

I paired the skirt with my Ann Taylor ruffle top and black tights

Oreo cupcake

Look at how delicious this Oreo cupcake is! We celebrated my friend’s birthday at a Korean restaurant and then surprised her with all these little cupcakes ๐Ÿ™‚ We also had yum cha for my dad’s birthday and stuffed our faces!

I love food and shopping!!

Hope you had ย a great weekend ๐Ÿ™‚ What did you guys get up to?

 

Boxing day sales

Okay if you have read my previous post, I said I wouldn’t be attending boxing day sales. Okay so I lied.. well I got tempted and failed .. I woke up super early on Boxing day and then went online to see what time shops were opening! Myer was opening at 6.45am and David Jones at 7am so since I was already up I though to myself “What the heck – lets see what Boxing day sales are like” haha

I drove there and got there in time – Myer was already opened so I browsed through. I looked at different dresses but didn’t end up getting any. As I walked around the shopping mall I waited for different shops to open.

Here are some of the items I picked up :

ย For my bro – just a simple top and he loves Tokyo

ย  For my sis – she loves baking!

ย For moi ๐Ÿ™‚ Some cute inexpensive earrings

For those who did attend Boxingย Day sales – what did you pick up? ย 

DIY T-shirt to Bag

After I saw Sewpetitegal create this DIY T-shirt to bag I knew I had to try it out ๐Ÿ™‚ She did hers with a long sleeve top but I created mine with a normal t-shirt top.
I don’t have pictures of what my t-shirt looked like originally *hehe I forgot to take pics*
But this is what it looked like after ๐Ÿ™‚

Basically the steps in making it was:
Cut across the sleeves of the t-shirt so you have a rectangular shape – you can decide how big or small you want the bag to be but I just cut straight across and made that the size of my bag.

You will also need to cut a smaller rectangular shape for the bottom of your bag. So make sure you have some material left over to do this.

Using the sleeves of the Tshirt I used this to make the handles of my bag.

Now its time to start sewing. Sew the smaller rectangular to the bottom of your bag. *Make sure to fold it inside out first so the seam is on the inside.*
Sew the handles to the tops of your bag. *I find that if your handles are too long you can always knot the bag to make it shorter*

Bonus feature: Add two strips to the front of the bag – for a belt to go through and then you can tie a ribbon around it. You might want to add one more strip at the back of the bag for more stability and voila ๐Ÿ™‚ Your tshirt bag is done.

I recommend giving this a go ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m not a very good sew-er but I managed to do this! You can turn a t-shirt that you don’t wear much anymore into a much loved bag!
