This week at Blitsy I was on a mission to reuse a pair of serious hot pants I bought from Wal-mart. I was recently in Wisconsin and was in serious need of some workout pants. Being my outrageous self, I opted for the hot pink pineapple pants (also note the matching shoes) in lieu of the black, subtle pants. I have recently been on a pineapple kick. I am pretty much obsessed with all things pineapple. Now, I knew I wouldn’t wear these pants again, but I couldn’t quite part with the fabric (spoken like a true hoarder, er, I mean crafter). I finally was able to come up with a project using my fantastic pineapples. Oh, how I love my little pineapple apron! Head on over to Blitsy to check out the full tutorial.
This week, I also took a stroll though the Dollar Store and found some serious inspiration. I snagged a set of four green tumblers along with 4 green bowls for $2. That’s right, two items purchased at the Dollar Store will cost you $1 + $1 = $2. :) I wanted to recreate my version of a set of clear tumblers covered in gold metallic polka dots from Kate Spade. Of course, the Kate Spade tumblers were seriously overpriced. The tumblers and bowls I made would be great as a house warming gift or for a backyard party! See the full tutorial here.
