Not only did I finish the ever popular Teacher Tool Box I started last week, but I even did a little last minute wedding project!
First, my teacher tool box:
I spray painted it black (my first official spray paint job- let's just say- it'll do), cut up my labels and stuck them in there. I still have to tape them in, but it'll work for now until I get back to school.
For my 2nd project, it came to me due to a meeting we had with our awesome DJ for our wedding yesterday (which is less than 3 weeks away now!). He convinced us to do a few things we weren't going to with his clever ideas, but that meant I had to come up with a few things. One thing was a garter. I've seen the really pretty ones on Etsty, but given my time limit, they would have cost a lot just for shipping to ensure they would be here on time and I know I would be freaking out waiting for them, so instead, I made them.
I don't sew. I have never done it before. I thought this little project would be simple enough... and it was! Now- are they perfect? No! But I don't care. Only a handful of people will see it. Here is the set I made today:
I measured the two spots I was going to wear it by just wrapping the lace around my thigh and cut the lace. I glued the two ends together (pinching it like a little fin), secured it with a little thread, turned it outside-in, and the band was done!
The blog will be a bit abandoned I feel over the next couple weeks with the wedding fast approaching, but I could be wrong...
I hope you are having as beautiful weather as we have here today! Until next time!
