The Best Project I ever made... for myself!

Hi! Sunshine friends,

I'm so excited today!
I just 'discover' something new and I love it so much!

While I was trying to 'reduce' the 'stock' of my old clothes by making
some T-shirt yarn yesterday....
I found these pretty ruffles 'thing' 
(that's what I'm going to call it for now...I'll let know know later...)

Hint #1 - it's a leftover from making T-shirt yarn....

Hint # 2 - It was previously belong to Mei Mei and Jojo

Hint # 3 - It looks like this at the other 'side'....

Now, can you guess what it it?

Last hint...This is how it looks like unrolled...

Yes!!! It's the top part of a kid's pant - where the elastic band is sewn...
I cut them out from some old pants that too small for Mei Mei and Jojo...

I use the rest of the pant for making yarn...

So...What I'm going to do with them?
Threw away?  No....they are too precious too me...
Look at them when you rolled them up...
Just like a blossom flower...

This is what I did...

I cut a little corner of the fabric at corner of the elastic band was wrapped...
and make a small cut at the elastic band like this...

I inserted an old bra clip and secure it with some stitches....
Guess you know what I'm going to do with it....

Do the same for both ends...

This is the most comfortable bra strap I ever wore!

No more bra straps that left mark on your shoulder when you wear it too tight
No more dropping bra strap when you wear it too loose...

Hooray for me!

Hope you will try this
It's weird...but it's WORK!!!!


Awww... I'm so honor...

  11. Amazing!! Just my type of DIY. Simple and pretty stuff. I tried a few of your ideas and put them up on my blog too. Thanks for being the inspiration :)

  12. Oh PC you have the best ideas! I love that you never throw any part of the clothes you upcycle away - and find a use for EVERYTHING!!

  13. What a great idea- I love it! I will be making my own bra straps now- thank you! :)
