Well … maybe I can’t really call this a “DIY” since I did use a pattern. Although I guess I did DO IT MYSELF, so I’m going to count it.
Is it just me, or are patterns written in greek? Maybe I just need to learn more sewing lingo.
I bought this pattern at Walmart for $1! I figured I could just wing it without a pattern, but for something large, I assumed it was worth the splurge. I was totally right! I’m getting my moneys worth out of this baby!
I made this for my roomate for her b-day. She’s on a cruise right now with no internet connection, so hopefully she doesn’t see this post until she gets back on Saturday. 🙂 She doesn’t cook much, but maybe this will give her some motivation! It’s the pinkest thing in the entire world. Notice the pink ruffle on the pocket? ❤ And that green stuff … it's an old SHOWER curtain!
Superman apron for Max’s birthday. What 32 year old boy (or maybe 33?) doesn’t want a Superman apron. Name one …
I found this on pintrest, so I figured, why not?!?
1 cup vinegar – heat up in the microwave for 2 min
4 TBSP of baking soda – add it to the vinegar SLOWLY! I mean, mega slow. Otherwise you’ll have a volcano on your hands. Mix well.
1 cup dish wash soap (like Dawn). Mix again.
Pour into bathtub.
Let sit for 2 hours.
I was hoping to not scrub at all, but I had to a little.
It totally worked!
So I attended my first MegaCon last Saturday and I discovered something … I’m not a nerd.
Or maybe I’m just too old.
I actually really enjoyed making my silly costume, but the crowds and the weirdos … I think I’ll pass on MegaCon 2015.
Time to craft my Boltie t-shirt.
Step 1 – buy a gold t-shirt. This was harder than I thought! I finally found one at Walmart.
Step 3 – sew logo pieces together!
That’s it! It’s a piece of cake.
In case you were wondering why I made a green felt mask (St. Patrick’s Day?) or a green skirt (she got a great deal on green fabric?) … I’m actually crafting a costume for MegaCon.
I’ve never been before, but I’m assuming it’s like the San Diego Comic Con, only about 50X less cool.
My friend Max goes every year and he dresses up. At first I thought that’s a lame idea and there’s no way I’m dressing up.
Then I thought, “What the hell? I’ve got some times on my hands.”
(I’m not calling it “cosplay” though … I just can’t bring myself to that.)
I’m dressing up as Boltie, from the movie Super.
Up next, I need a shirt!
