I love it when my blogging friends become published authors! Fellow Michigan blogger Adrianne has published a brand new craft book called DIY T-Shirt Crafts, and she sent me an advance copy to check out. Adrianne joins Amy, Heather, and Amanda on my list of blogging friends with books under their belts!
Adrianne Surian is a west Michigan mom of 2 who’s been crafting long since before it was cool. She founded Happy Hour Projects in 2011 as a way of sharing hour-or-less crafts, accessories, and recipes with other busy people who want to add some creativity to their days. Her philosophy of “use what you have” when crafting prompted her to explore the versatility of t-shirts, and fifty projects later, DIY T-Shirt Crafts was published by Adams Media.
DIY T-Shirt Crafts explores 50 ways you can recycle a t-shirt into other kinds of accessories, gifts, and home decor. It transforms an old tee into something else entirely, and you can complete every project without using a sewing machine. True to Adrianne’s quick-craft addiction, the projects are all designed to be completed in an hour or less.
I followed the directions for the mason jar pincushion project, and I had my project done in way less than 30 minutes! Now I don’t have to worry about stepping on rogue pins every time I tackle a sewing project!
