2017 Scrap Busting Craft Challenge: July "DIY Criss Cross T-Shirt"

Can I just start off by saying that I can't believe that the last time I posted on my blog was for last month's Craft Challenge? *insert wide eyed emoji here* I actually have projects ready to be posted, but haven't been able to schedule photo shoot time. It's crazy how fast the weeks pass by. Summer is going by way too quickly!

Now on to the Craft Challenge! 
For this month, I decided to use spaghetti strap trim. I got this during my time at FIDM and never used it. I found some for sale online and it's a good price. Here is the  link. Lately, I've been seeing criss cross tees everywhere so I decided to make my own. I used an old FIDM tee to match the black spaghetti strap trim.


1. I cut out a "V" in the front. I left the neckline binding though.

2. I cut out some pieces of the spaghetti strap trim and pinned on the "V" of the shirt, as shown.

3. Then, I sewed the pieces on. I decided to add one more row of the criss cross straps.


Now, check out what the other crafters are creating this July:


"Casual Cabin Camo" // Pinecrest Cabin 2017 Outfits

Exactly one week ago, I was relaxing and enjoying nature at a cabin that my family and I rented. It was a really fun experience and I hope it becomes a tradition in my family. I went camo crazy for this trip. Every time I go or do something "outdoorsy," I love to bring out my camo. :) For my first outfit, I wore this super comfortable camo dress (and it has pockets!). When I went to the lake, I wore sandals instead of my hiking boots, just to make it easier to get in and out of the water. It was the perfect casual outfit to relax and enjoy all of the nature around me.


Dress: Nordstrom Rack
Chambray: Marshall's
Hat: Amazon
Sunglasses: The Walk in Closet (super cute boutique in Twaine Hart!)
Boots: Amazon


After swimming at Pinecrest Lake, I stopped by the souvenir shop at the lake. Since I was still in the "outdoorsy" mood, I bought a camo souvenir tank. It's a habit of mine to buy souvenir shirts everywhere I visit, LOL. I think it's just because I really like clothes. :P I wore it with a layering tank I found at Walmart for just under $4. These tanks are incredibly soft and perfect for modest layering.
