Adrienne’s NDAD Creation

Adrienne’s piece for today is one of my faves! She used one of my go-to methods for when a vintage dress is just a little too bold or the pattern is super overwhelming. You can simplify and make it rock with just one easy step. Check out Adrienne’s piece…

I have been reading your blog for some time now, after I discovered (and bought) the book! I have always been an aspiring DIYer, but didn’t really know how to get started.

I love how Michelle and her gorgeous little kiddo Mikhayla took an outgrown garment and turned it into something so cool and practical! This is something that you can craft for yourself, for your kids, for your office and I can’t wait to get started on one myself! Check out what the terrific team of M&M created…

Hi! I have a crafty project made out of an outgrown garment to show you! Mikhayla had a cute little sweatshirt that had our favorite thing in the world on the front of it – SPARKLES! We couldn’t just throw it away!
