Nothing exciting here but black cotton 1.5 yards.  $2

Nothing exciting here but black cotton fabric 1.5 yards. $2

Intent: Used to line project bags

Gap Jeans

Gap Jeans $6

Why must Pepper Photobomb EVERYTHING!!  I don’t normally purchase jeans from traditional stores as they are all low rise, med waist.  That is not by body type so I far well with older style jeans with enough fabric for your Bare necessities:).  I normally find a 8L so I hem them using this method here from Youtube.

Intent: Use RIT dye and darken, I used this easy Hem Video here.

Craft-ness

Vintage Clothes Pin-Great for crafts, wrapping yarn especially when you have to rip back, Chip clips all kinds of things

Vintage Hem Marker-Woo!  self explanatory! I heart vintage sewing do-dads

Skirt Hanger

Intent: Actually give it to Spousie so he can organize and hang his bowties.

Scarf and Gloves

Scarf and Gloves

Intent:  Wear them of course but I may add some colorful embellishments like a pop of crimson would go nicely.  Add a trim to the gloves or use them to underline my fingerless mitts.  I LURVE neutrals but  I am trying desperately to branch out and add color.

Man Bag

Man Bag

Intent: Leather bag $20 for Spousie when we travel so he can put his tech devices and personals.  I am sure he’ll like this better than my girly Vera Bradley bag, LOL.  Man Approved.
