Make-Over Monday

I was looking at patterns one day at Hobby Lobby, when I came across this purse pattern. The pattern actually suggested that you use a pair of pants as the fabric.
The making of this purse happened way before I started trying to repurpose clothes on my own! (without a pattern)
The pattern I used was Simplicity # 2597.
It was a fun and easy sewing project. I went shopping for a pair of kaki pants at my
local Goodwill. I think I might have paid around $4.00 for the pants.
The pants were in a great/almost new shape.

Plus, there are several other cute purse patterns included in this pattern also!

Pants Before:
(Sorry, this is a really bad picture!)

Purse After:

Happy Monday!

Summer Schedule

I am going to start trying to organize my blog a little bit this summer. I have come up with a routine schedule that I will try & hopefully be able to keep up! I think that if I have a set routine and/or agenda that it might make it easier to blog more consistently. (I am not yet promising this throughout the busy, hectic school year!) We will see! :) So here is what I am thinking so far:

Sunday--Might be my down day?
Make-over Monday-- repurposing
Totally Fun Tuesday--fun ideas to do with the kiddos
What I'm Working On Wednesday--my projects
Thankful Thursday
Feature Friday --I see awesome stuff
in blog land and want to share some of my favorites!
Sun-sational Saturday--- this one is open for
anything fun and summer like!

What do you think? I welcome any suggestions and/or ideas!!
