Old Rompers to New Shirts

We bought these rompers for my daughter and within weeks, she grew out of them.. She's very tall for her age. I didn't want to get rid of them because they were barely used so I just fixed them!
All I did was cut and hem. That's it! Now she has 2 new shirts. This is the kind of easy sewing projects that are good for a busy mom :)

Camera Strap Redo

I finally did it! I've been wanting to do this for a long time now & I finally did!

What I used:
-Spray adhesive
-Sewing machine

First thing I did was cut out a piece of fabric that was wide enough to wrap around the strap. Then I sprayed the strap with the Spray Adhesive and wrapped the fabric around it. I did this because it was really hard {impossible} to pin down the fabric to my strap.. So I did this to make sewing it on easier.
{Sorry no pictures for these next steps} Then I sewed down the ribbon and pulled the strings to create the ruffles, pinned {the best I could} it to the strap, and sewed down the middle.

Here is the back of the strap once it was done!
And the finished product! :)

Normal Jeans To Skinny Jeans

I found this tutorial on Freshly Picked and it inspired me to make my own! I found a pair of jeans that didn't mind making skinny and followed her instructions. Check out the results! It was super easy and fun!
