Reverse Applique

August 13, 2009

I got a job at Texas State University in July and we have to wear TX State Shirts on Fridays.  They gave me 2, but i like a variety.  T-shirts are anywhere from $10-$25!   I am not going to pay that right now, so I decided to make my own.   I remembered that I read a blog last year about Reverse Applique and decided I wanted to try it out for myself.

I started by buying a a tank top at Old Navy for $2.00, then I bought a TX State t-shirt at the goodwill for $1.99.   (The t-shirt is a womans small)


Then I cut out the section of the logo that I wanted and I pinned it to the inside of the tank top.


Then I cut out the oval shape and pinned it to the right side of the tank top. I sewed around the oval on the right side of the tank. Then I removed all the pins and cut off the excess t-shirt.


Flipped the tank top right side out and cut the tank top from the inside of the oval.


And here is the result!


What do you think?  Is it worth $4.00 ?


Flower Arranging

April 9, 2009

I wasn’t sure if this was considered a craft or not, so i posted it here and in my regular blog.

Today I went over to Rachael’s house to help her with some centerpieces for a wedding she is doing on Saturday.  Rachael owns Corbyn’s Floral Design & Decor.  If you or anyone you know is getting married, they should definitely check out Rachael’s talent!

She does amazing work! I was glad to help out!  I worked on these centerpieces.   They are Pink Roses with Horsetail(looks like bamboo) and Green Button flowers.  I forget the names…sorry…


This is a larger centerpiece.  This will sit on top of a tall cylinder vase with lights and black rocks inside.


I was fun and actually relaxing!
