Beach Bag from Recycled Materials

A few months ago a got a new mattress. I had nicknamed my old mattress "the crater". It was time for a new  one. I got a memory foam mattress. Its the best thing that I've ever bought. I got a full size for $250 on Overstock. Such a great deal. 

Ok Anyway, It came rolled and wrapped in this woven plastic wrapper (you cut it and it goes "poof" and it expands :P ). Being the "craft-a-holic" that I am. I thought "hmmm what can I make out of this??" So I saved it.

Shirt for 70 cents

I bought this shirt at Marshalls on clearance for 70 Cents! Yeap! Be jealous. 

But it was missing.... uhhhh... something. I don't know what was supposed to be there, but it was gone.


But of course I thought "I can fix that". took me a while to get around to it, but I got it done in time for summer. :) 

(I got this sweater that same day)

So first I stitched the two ends back together:

Then, I took a ribbon from my stash that I think was from an old dress and looped around the top:

For some reason it looks like there is a stain down the front of it, but I swear there's not :P

So here's the finished result:

Quite an easy fix for $0.70 

and I think the boyfriend would be proud that they are USC colors :)

The Perfect Baby Boy Gift

There is SO much cute stuff out there for little baby girls.
But what about the little boys? 

Its getting better. But lets be honest, there's way more for girls.
So when my friend Shanena found out she was having a boy, I knew I needed to make a baby gift that would be amazing. 

Her husband is in the Air Force and the baby's room is airplane themed. So I decided to do some "airplane themed" onesies. I think they turned out so great. Super simple. And It only cost me some time and the price of a pack on onesies.
