Crafting with my City of Richmond peeps

Last Sunday I got to kick craft butt with my super lovely upcycling peeps from the City of Richmond. These are the two that help me make upcycling magic happen - Emy and Vivian. They rock!

I collected old t-shirts from the thrift store, made samples and I was ready...

We had 10 very enthusiastic crafters join in - a few regulars plus new participants.

We created upcycled bags out of old t-shirts...

Plus easy peasy DIY jewelry with t-shirt yarn.

These ladies booked a craft date... Getting crafty with BFFs is da bomb.

Group photo - yay!

And this cutie patootie couple decided to spend quality time together and learn about upcycling t-shirts. They killed it!

We took a $1 thrift store t-shirt and added some funk to it. A simple refresh and it was done!

Here it is! Sleeves removed, neckline trimmed and the sides were given some bling. We ended up with a simple t-shirt refresh and a very happy model.

And that was it... One super duper awesome Crafternoon! We really had a blast!

thanks to everyone who joined me! I'm looking forward to my next date with the City of Richmond. We're making DIY paper that grows flowers and veggies on October 30th. Hope to see you there!
