DIY: Polka Dot Jeans

I recently saw a pair of amazing polka dot jeans at one of my favorite stores for quite a hefty price.  This inspired me to make my very own, budget friendly, polka dot jeans! It’s such a quick & easy project (I did mine while watching a Cary Grant film.)  I don’t know how can you be nothing but happy wearing polka dots!

It’s pretty simple… all you need are a pair of jeans, fabric paint & a round sponge applicator ( I found mine at the local craft store.) 

Lay the jeans on a flat surface & with a good coat of the fabric paint start putting your polka dots in the desired area.  I choose to do my polka dots in diagonals of three.

After you’ve finished the first side of the jeans, let dry anywhere from 45 minutes to 4 hours.  Then continue with the other side of the jeans. Let the jeans dry overnight before wearing them & 72 hours before washing.

And there you have it! Put a smile on your face…. you have your very own polka dot jeans!

I hope you all have been having the most delightful summer! What kind of projects have you been inspired to do lately?

Xoxo!

Tuesday Tunes- It’s Music to Our Ears

Here in Music City we are constantly surrounded by talent and wonderful shows, but last month seemed to be extraordinarily magical.  From the Imogene + Willie backyard show featuring Karen Elson to Jack White bringing his unique style to the historic Ryman, we have had permanent smiles on our faces!  We wanted to share with you a few memories from the concerts over the past few weeks. Hope you enjoy!

DIY: Let’s Go Fly A Kite!

With summertime in full swing playtime in the sun is all that has been on my mind.

Kite flying is one of my most favorite things to do, so I thought it would be fun to make my own! This is a fun little project that can be enjoyed on a particularly breezy day (or in my case, a day of spins & twirls when there is no wind.)

Supplies Needed:

  • 2 small dowels
  • Fabric (I used vintage sheets!)
  • Electrical tape
  • No Sew Glue
  • Ribbon
  • Kite String

  1. Cut dowels down to 23″ by 30″
  2. Place the dowels in a cross shape & secure with electrical tape
  3. Loosely cut fabric out in a diamond shape around the dowels.
  4. Paint, write & decorate fabric as you please
  5. Place fabric over dowels & use no sew glue to secure ends while pulling the fabric taut
  6. Cut a small hole at each corner of the kite. Attach kite string width wise & length wise, joining in the middle.
  7. Attach flying string to the rest of the joining string.
  8. Attach (with electrical tape) ribbon to the bottom corner of the kite for the tail & add bows in desired places.

Up, up & away! You’re ready to fly your own one of a kind adorable kite!

Happy Flying!

Xoxo’s!

Thank you for being such an amazing friend! I thank my lucky stars to know you.

Many, many wonderful & amazing things are to come in this next year!

Adventures in Sewing

Welcome to my newly finished sewing nook!

It’s such a bright & sunny place in the house, it is going to be the perfect space for all the sewing projects I have planned in the upcoming months.

I’m teaching myself to sew from all of the vintage sewing books I’ve collected over the past year.  I know it will be challenging at times, but I’m really excited to start creating!

I’m challenging myself only to make & not to purchase any new clothes…. this should be interesting!

Take a look at some of the darling pictures that are in some of the books.  The style is so amazing & inspiring.

Can’t wait to share more of my adventures in sewing with you.

Wish me luck!  Any sewing words of wisdom?

Xoxoxo,

Bethany Rose (& Rosemary, too)
