I am disappointed, the Red Bud tree only stays in bloom for a short time. Boo!

I found this new website that is so much fun. Thanks to my new friend Dawn.

Also I have been at this site a lot It is so fun and I love that she tells you how to do everything step by step, in a tutorial.

I want this book. I don't love everything about Martha, but I do love her style and choices for projects.

Here is one of the ideas from the show that I loved & want to try.

Here's an idea inspired by a project on the blog Turn an old shirt into a piece of wearable art that's quite grown-up.

Tools and Materials:

Soft cotton T-shirt


Scissors or rotary cutter

T-Shirt Necklace How-To
1. Lay the shirt on a flat surface; cut off the hem and discard. Then cut the body of the shirt horizontally into strips approximately 3/4 of an inch long. (They will actually be loops.)

2. One at a time, pull the loops open and stretch until the fabric starts to curl. Stack the loops on top of one another so that all the T-shirt side seams are in the same spot.

3. Once you have the thickness you desire, wrap the seams with a scrap piece of fabric (about 6 inches long) from the same shirt. Tuck the end of the scrap under itself.
