Cozy Square Top via Babble

This easy DIY will keep so cozy, you won’t want to take it off.

With winter coming up, this is a perfect solution for the lazy sewer (aka: me)

One tip, if you get a fabric that frays, hem that bitch! Hem both the sides before you sew the sides together that way your sleeves will be pre-hemmed.

If you’re going to cuff it like she does go for the double hem (this is where an iron is your friend, and where reading the ironing instructions for your fabric is very important). The double hem is way cleaner and covers all raw edges.

You can also use contrasting thread for a subtle pop. Happy sewing!

From Corinne’s Thread, on The Purl Bee:

Free sewing pattern and easy to follow tutorial for these sweet gym shorts, in ten different child & adult sizes! 

Using only 1/2 to 3/4 yard of two different fabrics, this is a great stash busting project.

I am totally going to sew me up some pretty pajama bottoms!

I had this post liked from forever ago, then I was at The Purl Bee last week and thought, “Hmm… these shorts look familiar” then going through my likes I found them again, so here they are for your sewing pleasure. (And they do actually look/feel super comfy too, bonus!)

Tatertots and Jello this Sunday with a Anthropology knockoff. Stick it to the hipsters with this way cheap, way easy, way cute nautical rope necklace. I’m going to JoAnn’s later today anyways so I may be picking up some supplies!

You could also do this with GoogleMars my fellow space cadets!

Added note, I agree with screamingdustspecks, it could be a very very creepy craft in the wrong hands. So no doing this of your crush’s (stalkee’s) house on your nightly pillowcase! Although telling you not to do it may have just given you ideas…

Yet another Trash to Couture DIY. The Victorian Print short! Even though (or maybe especially since) this project doesn’t have a pattern this is still not a beginner project due to the possible addition of a zipper and pockets. You could always adjust and have an elastic band but I personally think a zipper always looks better.

I always like a tutorial where I save a ton of money for something that looks really great and is super easy to make with a bit of guidance. Hence the love for this braided scarf tutorial by Put Up Your Dukes.

So I know what you’re thinking, “Seriously with the sweatshirts? It’s July!” to which I say suck my d this sweatshirt is adorable. You know where its cold? Movie theaters. Camping at night. Restaurants. Ice cream shops. The freezer section of the grocers.

All cases where you would say, “Man, I wish I had some sort of cute coverup that I could tell people I made.” So there!
