T-Shirt Quilt

I made my t-shirt quilt a few years ago, just after I got my first sewing machine. I had to post it because it's one of my favorite things I have ever made. It's all of my t-shirts from high school sports. I loved high school and this quilt just brings back all those fun memories! If anyone has any questions on how I made it you can email me

Another Bow Holder Idea

First, thanks to those that suggested I sell the tutus at my boutique. I made some to sell today and I just posted them! Let me know what you think. And don't worry, I am saving my extra poofy one for Eden's birthday!
Since I have decided to start selling hair bows it seems I am running out of room to store them! I have a simple, cheap, idea for another bow holder and I thought I would share.

I took some sturdy cardboard, traced and cut out the letter E (for Eden)
Apparently I have a hard time cutting within the lines.

Then I took a square of some cute fabric I got on clearance from Wal-Mart and mod podged it to my letter.

Then I cut around my letter leaving a little extra fabric so I could mod podge the edges to the back.
Then I hot glued some ribbon to the letter! I used the gift wrapping kind so I wouldn't have to use up my bow making ribbon!

Toilet paper rolls

There are many many ways to recycle toilet paper rolls around the house, this is an idea I learned from my aunt to help keep your bathroom a little more organized. The drawer I stuff my hair dryer, curling iron, etc. in was usually a huge mess. The wires would always get tangled together and some how tied in a bunch of knots. Well thanks to aunt Jo, problem solved...

If you want, you could even cover the toilet paper rolls with scrapbook paper or fabric. I will probably do that, some day.
