I have hit a new low in DIYs. I had that week off from blogging last week, and I just can’t seem to catch up. I started thinking seriously on Monday about what sort of DIY I could make. I had just purchased one of those cute white pumpkins, so I thought I’d do something with that.
It’ll be cute, I thought. And I began the project. I spent a good 30 minutes on it, and laughed at myself. I texted a picture of it to my sisters, and said, “I need to come up with a new DIY because I’m 40, not 6.” Yes, it’s cute, but is it really DIY material?
So there you have it. #diyfail. So at 9:00 pm on Monday night, I went to the basement to see what kind of inspiration I could come up with. I saw a pillow, I saw a t-shirt (both hastily lying on the floor where they shouldn’t be), and I thought to myself, “t-shirt pillowcase”. I mean, it’s got to be better than “kindergarten owl pumpkin”, right?
So here it is. I really don’t need to give you much detail on how I made it. I threw the t-shirt on the pillow, inside out, and pinned it to size. I sewed the collar and the arm holes shut, and then I stitch-witched the bottom because really I was just too lazy to actually sew it and make it look good. I could have done one or the other, but frankly, not both.
In the end, it’s pretty cute, if I do say so myself. I mean, it’s nothing I could sell on Etsy, it’s more like one of those, “it looks cute from far away, but seriously, does she not know how to sew?” projects.
