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 🙂 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 🙂
I paired the skirt with my Ann Taylor ruffle top and black tights
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 🙂 We also had yum cha for my dad’s birthday and stuffed our faces!
I love food and shopping!!
Hope you had a great weekend 🙂 What did you guys get up to?
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 :
For my bro – just a simple top and he loves Tokyo
For my sis – she loves baking!
For moi 🙂 Some cute inexpensive earrings
For those who did attend Boxing Day sales – what did you pick up?
After I saw Sewpetitegal create this DIY T-shirt to bag I knew I had to try it out 🙂 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 🙂
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 🙂 Your tshirt bag is done.
I recommend giving this a go 🙂 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!
