Upcycled Clutch

2:11 PM

**Don't forget to nominate your favorite blogs Monday & Tuesday for a BLOSCAR, here!! 


Voting starts on Wednesday!**



I love making new things out of old things that I never use anymore! I had this old shirt which I loved the color and texture of but it was just a little "too much" and I never wore it. 
So, I cut it up and made a little clutch out of it. I might add pockets for my cards and the like so I can just use it as a mini purse instead of lugging my big one around. 
Wait, who am I kidding....that won't work!
I have to carry juice, crackers, and toys at all time..but good in theory! 
Ha Ha

I took other extra scraps and made the little rosettes. Here is how to make them... 
(don't mind the hot glue burned onto my poor finger, HA)


1) Take a long strip of material and leaving a bit at the end flat, begin to twist.


2) As you twist add a dab of hot glue to material and place twisted
piece on top of it as you wrap!


 3) Keep twisting around and gluing till you reach the 
size of rosette that you want



4) Glue ends underneath the back & repeat



Here it is...

  35. You make a very good point. Many people in graduate school probably do not think of the money they are "losing" by not being in the job market for a number of years. Even those who are paid as TAs and have tuition waivers typically only make enough (if they are lucky) to get by. Medical and law students pay an armand a leg for their education, but they are gaining practical experience and know that they will most likely earn salaries that will allow them to pay off debt in a reasonable amount of time. Those in the humanities do not have any sort of guarantee of landing a job that will allow them to pay back debt.
