The lazy crafters' guide to making a T-shirt rug

This project is quite easy, and it's also immensely rewarding. It let me keep old (unwearable) clothes without cluttering my drawers. It gave them a new, useful and pretty life. It's easy and quick enough to get actually finished in a few days. It leaves behind minimal craftermath. And my favorite part — since it seems I'm getting old and lazy — for the most part it can be done while sitting on the sofa, watching reruns of Grey's Anatomy.


What do I do with all my old bras?

I'm going to need a new wardrobe and I'm sure I'll be dropping off a lot of stuff at charity shops. But… can I do that with bras? Would you buy a second hand booby wrangler? What do you do with bras that are okay, but just don't fit you anymore?


How I turned a mannequin into a curiosity shelf

This bronze dude was donated to me years ago by friends opening a retail store, who found a dozen or so vintage mannequins in the attic space. But after a few moves, he wasn't as handsome as he used to be, but I was reluctant to toss him. In a last ditch effort to revive him for one more life, I decided to cut off his imperfections and make him into a shelf.
