T-Shirt Zipper Skirt, DIY

Pintrest is a wonderful place to get DIY ideas.
 I have been exploring how many different skirts I can make out of T-shirts. 
Here is one of them.

Things you need.
  1. Shirt * used a  Hanes medium mens.
  2. Chalk 
  3. Scissors
  4. 7 inch zipper
  5. Tape
  6. Large safety pin
  7. Ruler
  8.  Straight Pins
  9. Sewing machine
Lay your shirt down flat.
Measure one and one half inches down from the arm pit.
Tape across
Cut a straight line right under the armpits,
and cut a straight line at the taped line 
This will give you a one and one half inch strip of material.

Stretch out your one and one half inch piece. 
Cut it to make one long string
* this will be your tie piece.
now mark your skirt 4 inches in from the side.
Mark your line with chalk.
Place your zipper on your line

Fold under the excess.
Pin your zipper down.
Fold the top of your skirt down about one inch
 Iron it.
Sew it leaving about an inch channel.

Now sew your zipper on sewing along  the outside edge.
Unzip the zipper and cut down the middle.
Turn inside out and trim the excess material.
Cut a small slit in the top hem
 this is where you will thread your knit sting that you made through.

Attach the string to a large safety pin and thread it through bringing out on the other side.
Tie a knot on both ends of your string.
Now you have a quick and easy skirt for day time

or night time

Have a Wonderful Thursday.

Chevron Earrings. DIY

 I love the color turquoise, and the chevron pattern. I found some turquoise leather at Hobby Lobby so I had to snatch it up. It was only $5.99 for a pretty good size bag of scrap leather.
 I have played with the idea of Chevron earrings for about 3 months now.
Here are some I came up with.

Things you need.

  1. Leather* Hobby Lobby
  2. Pliers
  3. Knife
  4. Scissors
  5. Paper
  6. Pencil
  7. Ruler
  8. Jump rings* Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby
  9. Wire or earring findings.Hobby Lobby, Wal-mart
  10. Cutting mat, Wal-Mart, Hobby Lobby, Joann's Fabric
  11. Leather Hole Punch * not shown. *Michaels about $15.00 (My favorite tool)

 Cut a piece of paper 1 inch by 1 inch
 Trace that one inch square on your leather,
 cut out two one inch squares.

Now you have 2 one inch squares.

On your one inch piece of paper you want to draw it to look like this.
Use your ruler for crisp lines.

 cut it out

 Trace on your leather

Cut them out 
* I used my metal ruler and my x-acto knife.
use your Leather Hole Punch and punch out your holes.
Connect with your jump rings

 I trimmed the top chevron to make them look more even,
 but that is just a personal preference.
I cut two pieces of wire about two inches long.
I then bent them to look like this.
This makes the earring part that hooks in your ear.

 I attached that to the top hole.

I added another jump ring and some chain to another  pair,
 just for a slight difference.

 Have a great Wednesday.
Go Create.
