Simple DIY projects call my name. Really simple. I am not a seamstress or artist, although I wish I were. There are a million DIY's wandering the world wide web and I have learned to stick with the easy-peasy ones. I saw this ASOS Bonjour sweatshirt tutorial and thought I could tackle it and save some cash. In the meantime, I have struggled finding onesies for Henley that are unique, affordable and don't have a huge monkey or butterfly on it. Thus, the project went from a sweatshirt to a Bonjour onesie and I love how it turned out. She wears it all the time and it goes with everything.
^^Not the best shot of the shirt, but you get the point^^
After the Bonjour onesie was a success, I figured I could try to make another stencil with the magic freezer paper. I think it turned out pretty cute.
Then there is me. I spotted this bad boy at Anthropologie and immediately fell in love with everything about it. Except the price. (The next week I met up with my sister and she of course had the gorgeous top on and had somehow bought it for a screamin' deal --she is the best deal finder evah). Great news is, this amazing blogger had my same thoughts and created a tutorial. The sewing was definitely for beginners so it was right up my alley. I bought the black tee at Target and the material at JoAnn's for $1.25! Total cost of the shirt was $9.25! I am elated when I get a bargain and projects turn out. I have worn this baby too many times to count.
^^I'll say it so you don't have to -- I am not good at selfie's.^^
^^Taking a picture of my back is more difficult than I thought possible.^^
