How many times do you see something in a store, catalog or online and think “I can make that”? I do it all the time. Not very often do I actually get around to making the thing, but this week I hope we can all get motivated.
We’ll be featuring projects inspired by items from stores, but done DIY. Whether you make things for thrift, for fun, or both, this week will be good! These clothing projects make me wish I had a sewing machine when I was younger and might have actually worn interesting clothes. It’s too late for me now.
