My mind is always racing thinking of different patterns, types of clothes or outfit to make. Oh .I remember this cute Jumpsuit and knew I had to make it. Ask me where am I going to wear it. I don't know and I don't care I just had to get out of my head and in some fabric. LOL!  I'm. Crazy like that! I get a little obsessive when I have and idea in my head.

Hey Everyone!
I'm coming today with a Beautiful, Fun, Easy and Free DIY Project.. You can actually make this in a about 4 hours.


Things you'll need
Old book Plate CD stapler card board tape ornaments (optional)

First step is to find an old book you don't need and tear about 100 pages out.  With each piece of paper make cones. Just like the picture below. Seriously, I made about 90-100 cones.. Just sit yourself in front of the TV with a glass of your favorite beverage and it should have these done in no time flat..


I had and old Postal Service box I wasn't using and made 2 circles using a CD and a plate. I made sure that I even them out by marking them out. No reason, that's just me..

Slowly, I stapled each cone to the cardboard. My staple actually reached and it was easy, some people just tape the cones to the board..


Filling them in each row at a time..

Hey Everyone!! I'm back again this week for the other half of my tutorial.
Now it's the Wallet and Eye Glass Case..

Things Needed: Faux Leather or Vinyl Scissor Sew Machine Velcro Circles Fabric for lining (optional)
7" Zipper

I really wanted something different than your average sunglass case. I got on Google Then I ran into the easiest  and coolest case from fashionrolla.com

She tells you the tools you need and gives you the Template. I quickly made 2 copies of the template and cut the white (back) part, then cut the pink (front) part out.

The Look of Luxury..3 Piece Deluxe Faux Crocodile Leather

Hey Everybody... I have an Handbag Tutorial for you all. I know it's been a minute for the handbags but I just didn't find any inspiration. Until Now!!
It's Called: The Look of Luxury..
You really don't have to go out and buy expensive handbags to get the right look. I just went to my local Walmart and Scored... Wally World has done it again.
Handbag, Wallet and Eyeglass Holder The picture doesn't do it justice..
First installment: The Handbag..
Here's the bag on it's own.. She feels so substantial, just like my other semi-expensive handbags. She's unlined because I made an insert for her. I'm trying to stay organized and it's easier to just take the insert in and out than to have everything thrown in my new baby..



Wally World is the BEST!

The Faux Crocodile was $8.97 a yard and I purchased only 1 yard because I wasn't quite sure what to do with it..
