Summer is ending and if you live anywhere like Phoenix, LA or Palm Springs you know your hot days are about to really hit! It’s never too late to make one of these skirts to wear in the fall.
Things You Will Need:
Satin 1-2 Yards
Tulle 8-10 Yards
First figure out your waist size, add 2 inches then divide it by 6.28. This will give you the radius for your waist.
Let’s start by cutting the tulle. Take 1.5×1.5 yards of tulle and fold it in half. Next, take a pin and place it at the top middle of the fold. Attached a string that is the same length as your waists radius and use it as a guide to cut a half circle.
Keeping the tulle folded in half, add 20in to the end of the sting and repeat. Unfolded, you should have a circle cutout of tulle with a smaller circle in the middle (your waist size).
For the satin or silk, repeat the same steps as above using 1 square yard of fabric instead. Adjust the length of the skirt by 5 or 10 inches depending on preference.
Sew a basting or straight stitch along the waist to keep tulle from sliding and moving around.
For the waist band use a thick elastic belt and sew the ends together. Pin inside out the inner layer, tulle and elastic belt in the waist. There will be extra room with fabric so even it out around the elastic belt.
Then once ready to sew pull and stretch elastic out with the skirt. this will bunch the tulle at elastic. once you finish the waist turn it inside right and you have a tulle skirt.
It’s summer! Time to hit the beach! I decided I wanted to make some chunky anklets to wear when I go barefoot. These are super easy and fun to create.
YOU WILL NEED:
Beads (enough to fit around one ankle)
Bead Stringing Wire (.30mm)
Toggle Clasps (the circle part only)
Tulle or sheer thick ribbon
First, just simply string on the beads with the wire. Add the circle part of the toggle clasp on each end with a crimp bead. String through the ribbon. Slide your foot through and tie a bow in the back! Super cute and easy!
Red Velvet Fabric 2-4 panels, depending on the size of your TV
Sewing Machine or Iron On Hem Tape
String of Lights
Black Duck Tape
This is an easy yet fun project to do! In this DIY, I created a movie wall for the TV room. It was looking really boring and tacky with the wire cover and outlet hanging around it.My TV is really small and I only needed two panels that were 4 x 9 ft. I sewed a 1/4 inch hem around the perimeter, you can also use a iron on hem tape as well.
To hang, I pleated the top about every 2-3 inches and stapled it to the wall at top. Hang a panel on each side of the TV so it is centered and you can wrap it around the wall hanger. Now you have movie curtains!
If you want to get real creative simply use black duck tape and wrap the lights around TV and now it looks like you have an old movie marquee!

Kyanite is a powerful stone that is known for aligning all of the Chakras. Unlike other stones, Kyanite doesn’t absorb any negative energy, which means that it never needs to be cleansed. Instead, Kyanite rapidly transfers energy through vibrations. Kyanite is also useful for communication skills, as it can create pathways of energy that help send information telepathically. It also restores energy balance.
Blue apatite:Apatite is a stone known for helping those who wear it achieve their goals. It first clears away confusion, apathy or negativity. Then, it stimulates the intellect to expand knowledge and truth, which may be used for personal growth or for the collective good. It is a Stone of Manifestation.

Set your machine on zigzag, then sew forward. Push the reverse button and sew backwards. Repeat 2-3 times for security. Sew 3 out of 4 sides with a zigzag stitch, starting 1/2 on and 1/2 off to close the bag.Fill bags with 1-2 TBSP of tea and cut the extra fabric off. Sew the open end with a zigzag stitch.Cut squares out of cardstock paper and hearts out of the construction paper.Thread a needle and pull the thread through the top corner of the teabag, threading it through the tag. Label the hearts, so you can color coordinate all your teas. Enjoy a custom made cup of tea or gift it to a friend!
