I love re-imagining and recycling not only home decor but clothing as well. I just finished refashioning a long sleeved, winner knit shirt into a new summer top. I had planned on posting it first but it is currently in the wash. I (being the graceful person that I am) unfortunately spilled something on it right after I finished it. Therefore, I will first be sharing what I did with some of the scraps for now and the shirt makeover later.
Over the last year I have shared lots of general of arts and crafts project with you guys but my first loves are bead work and sewing. I still sew on a pretty regular basis but the huge storage bin where I keep all my beads has mostly sat unused over the last few years in my garage. Recently I thought about the tons of seed beads I had in there and got the itch to work with them again. I needed inspiration for a new project using them so I jumped on Pinterest.
I struck gold when I ran across a site called BeadsMagic.com. I found a pattern for a necklace I fell in love with and couldn't wait to try. I contacted the site owner and they were nice enough to give me permission to share the pattern with my readers as well! Yaaaay!
