Hey everyone! Well, I was in our sewing room and I came across this dress... it was quite big and somewhat hideous. So I decided to give it a remake over into a printed skirt. Now I 'm absolutely in love with it! If y'all what to do something like this then just fellow the easy DIY instructions.
If you have a drew that you what to turn into a skirt this is how you can do it: Fist cut the top half off, now cut to the length that your going to want it to go to. So, size it up to you first, and hold your finger at the place your going to cut it.
This dress was already hemmed. I would presume that yours is probably to if is store bought that is.
Your going to need some elastic.
Size the elastic around your wast and fit it to a comfortable size, but also leave about a half of an icy extra for sewing it over.
Pin the material to the elastic.
You will need to overlap the material over the elastic.
When it's all pined and looks somewhat like this you may begin sewing!
As you are sewing make sure you keep the needle join in a straight line under the elastic. And remove the pins once your needle is at least a half an inch away from them.
Check a few time and make sure your sewing the elastic to the material. Because it could slip out from the overlap. And all you would be sewing is the material.
Once you get to the end put the sewing needle in reverse and go back and forth over the part that ends the elastic.
Hey y'all! So this is a poster board ribbon materiel...er...foo-foo craft! It looks super cute on your desk, in your bedroom, or closet...etc. You can do it with any fabric you want. This poster board that was in our room was a bit bare... so I decided to spruce it up a bit with some left over material and gems.
What your going to need: Gems. you can get them from Hobby Lobby or any craft store. Ribbons or old scraps of material, And if you want a little extra you can add some colorful shoe lases.
You will also need a hot glue gun. Normal Elmer's glue probably won't keep it on, so better be safe then sorry... yeah I would suggest using a hot glue gun. ;)
I had some old green ribbon that I thought would look great to add some more color.
So, now get the scraps of material and tie them together in knots.
These are the gems that you will glue on after you are finished gluing on the material.
As you can see I have some of the material already glued on.
And now it's all glued on.
Then you can glue on the gems in any way you want. I did them on top of each knot of the material.
