DIY – Upcycle Towel into Toddler Bib

My one year old is exploring the wonderful world of food. Not only does he enjoy eating the food, but he likes to squish it in his fingers, run it through his hair, fling it from his spork, push it off his tray, and occasionally, put it behind his back.  Needless to say, mealtime is a very messy though enjoyable experience.

My son has a ton of bibs from when he was younger, but they are really meant for babies and don’t really stop the food from covering his clothes.  So I thought, DIY bibs, or more specifically, DIY toddler bibs!  We recently upgraded our towels so I decided to upcycle an old towel into a toddler bib just the right size for my little man.  Read on for my full DIY bibs tutorial…

DIY – Upcycle Earring to Necklace Tutorial

I tend to keep this misfit earring collection because some of these earrings are just so pretty and I hope that either it’s missing partner will miraculously turn up, or I can find some other use for them.  Well, I finally found another use for them… upcycle them to a necklace!  Read on for my Upcycle Earring to Necklace Tutorial!

Me sporting my brand new belt (and my 39 week belly!)

I decided to make this d-ring belt tutorial because the first time I made a d-ring belt, I was blown away by how simple and fast it was.  It literally took me two minutes and then I had a brand new belt (one which I still wear all the time, mind you, and which you can see at my Double V-Neck Boxy Dress Tutorial, Breezy Trapeze Dress Tutorial, Comfy, Cozy Sweaterdress Tutorial, and Golden Skirt Tutorial).  Today, I want to share this easy peasy DIY tutorial with all of you, so read along for my DIY-Two Minute D-Ring Belt tutorial
