Thrifty Sewing Tip
Want a cute top, but all you have is an old too big t-shirt? Just grab your sewing machine, some lace, elastic and some guts. First, remove the sleeves and save for later. Cut the neck into either a scoop neck or square shape, your choice. Take in the sides of the the t-shirt so it doesn't hang like a sack. Reattach the sleeves, adding small pleats so they will fit. Trim the neckline with lace and the sleeves too if you like. Now add the the elastic to the hems of the sleeves and along the neckline too. What you will end up with is a cute sort of peasant style top with puffed sleeves that has been specially tailored to you. Aren't you so lucky.

Crafts, creations, recipes, reviews and anything else that strikes my fancy. On a tight budget so a lot of recycled, refashioned, and thrifty stuff.

Thrifty Crafting Tip
Don't throw away those plastic bottle caps that recycling won't take - they have a lot of craft uses.
Rinsed out laundry bottle caps are just the right size to use for egg holders for Easter. They also are great to take to the sandbox or beach to make little sandcastles or villages.
