Day 129: Scrap Busting T-Shirt Bangles

Day 130: Jumpsuit Dress
Day 128: Philharmonic Dress

Oy!  I have sooo many scraps left over from my Halloween costume!   To keep them out of the landfill, I’ve discovered another way to use the smallest of my scraps.  :)

Scraps!

I found a fun tutorial on on how to make T-shirt scrap bangles, and got to work.

First, I used my rotary cutter and cutting mat to slice up a bunch of 1″ strips.

Slice it up!
Strip Tease!

Then, I put them in groups of 3 and braided them together.

Chip Clips...not just for chips anymore. :)

Then, I sewed each end together and trimmed them.  Next, I took another tiny scrap and tied it around where the ends meet on each of the bracelets.  :)

Triplets! :)

My accessories aren’t the only new things in my life!  :)

My sweet new (to me) ride!

You’re looking at a 1988 VW Cabriolet.  My Cabriolet.  I saw it, fell in love, and the rest is history.  :)  The only prob is…it has a manual transmission…which I have never driven before.  So yes…I bought a car that I can’t drive.  A co-worker told me this was very bold (translation:  stupid).  :)  Fella has been awesome about teaching me to drive it, and I almost have the hang of it!

Let's hope I don't hurt myself! :)

Cheers!
