Taylor Swift Concert T-Shirts

We love Taylor Swift! And you can’t show up to a concert with just any old shirt on! We needed matching shirts that said “Speak Now”. And you can’t just slap some puffy paint on them when you can applique with cute fabric! And so we did. I cut up some old T-shirts and made little flowers in the pink and orange for the shoulders.
The back of the shirt I cut a stencil on the Cricut out of vinyl. I found an image for Taylor’s signature and the date of the concert! I painted it in craft paint.Why make 1 shirt when you can make 5! It was fun to be all matching.

We had such good seats and these were pictures I took on my camera – my niece even touched Taylor! It was the best concert ever! People kept asking us where we got our shirts! Good job Jedi Craft Girl!!

Halloween Sewing & Quilting

I sewed up a few new things for Halloween. I love this fabric with the fun orange mixed with turquoise and black – so yummy!



The pillows were so fun to make – just sew some random strips and add a ruffle or flower!

A New Front Door

Not so much new door as new look! The Barn Red had to go – ah it was such the color 8 years ago!

We took the doors off and gave them a good sanding.
Then we went to town on the cheery apple green I choose. It’s bright but I really like it.It looks like my husband is doing all the work. Not really, I’m just the one with the camera!!

Love the brass – don’t you? Not to worry and no spending $250 on new handles. Just some spray primer & paint!

I used this self etching primer and followed the directions. Then I bought “oil rubbed bronze” spray paint finished them up.How does it look?

I painted the inside too – they used to be ugly wood color – now they are a fresh white!
