Let’s Just Make a Wallet {DIY Story}

I am in the mood for a new wallet but I really need to be saving for the house.  Twenty dollars can be used for gas or groceries.

So, I’m not best at sewing but I enjoy doing it from time to time.  To be honest, anything that I make from Pinterest turns out to be crap.

When I sew, I typically don’t use a pattern because I hate having a piece of paper telling me what to do!

All I did was go on Pinterest and search for a couple of wallet patterns and free handed the whole project.  The wallet didn’t turn out AMAZING but it is workable and does what it needs to do.

Here are the results:

{Yogi Gear} DIY

So I have been practicing yoga for about a year and a half and it is the best thing the universe introduce me to.  It is a beautiful balance of zen and fitness.  Yoga truly helps the soul!

Well I am obsessed with yoga gear! I love going into stores and checking out all of their cute shirts.  The problem is that they are SO EXPENSIVE!  Why yummy cute clothes? Why do you have to be $40 a shirt?  I understand that they are made out of organic cotton and have special ink imported from India to make these shirts but this little lady needs to stay within a budget.

So what do I do? I make my own!

Believe it or not, it was super easy!

Just go onto Pinterest and search “DIY Tank Tops.”

There are many different styles, so choose which one that you think will look great for your body structure.

I bought my shirt at Target on sale! It only cost me $5.95 (plus 5% off with my Red Card)!

While I was out shopping, I stopped by Jo-Ann fabric to pick up a package of fabric adhesive paper.  Make sure it says machine wash! They are always offering 40% off on one regular price item!

Then I followed the directions to make my shirt and placed my favorite design on the shirt to make it my own!

Here are the results!

Happy Yoga! May the new shirt bring you to a place of piece because you didn’t spend $40 on a shirt 🙂
