No-Sew Fringe T-Shirt Craft Project Tutorial [Video]

Last week we brought you a no-sew t-shirt craft project courtesy of Emi’s Hectanooga Channel on Youtube. This week we’re following up that post by highlighting a project that almost picks up where last week’s post left off.

So instead of showing you how to turn a t-shirt into a fringe scarf, today we’re highlighting a video that shows you how to make a really nice fringe top from a t-shirt.

This YouTube video comes by way of Pearly Gurl4 and what we like about the video is that she gives us two options for adding fringes to your tee.

And similar to the t-shirt into a scarf post this one requires absolutely no sewing and can be completed by a beginner in just a few short minutes.

Here’s the video below; we hope you enjoy it!

How to Pack

How to Pack

Knowing How to Pack Can Save You Majorly

Guest Blog Post Written by Sarah Paige

Travelling is exciting. It’s easy to jump straight into thinking about what activities you are going to do and what sites you want to see, but there’s a very important intermediary step between you and your destination: packing.

There are some who are super-prepared and begin packing, or at least thinking about packing, weeks in advance, and there are others who simply toss things into a suitcase the night before. But whether you’re organised or spontaneous, going overseas or just somewhere local like Vale Avely, WA, these packing tips are sure to be helpful.

Where are you going? Your destination plays an important part in deciding what to bring. If you’re going somewhere with pools or beaches, then definitely pack your swimsuit.

If you know you’re going somewhere fancy (like the opera or a nice dinner), bring fancy clothes. You don’t want to get stuck with nothing appropriate to wear, or having to buy new clothes at the last minute.

Planning for the Weather

Keep the weather in mind. Whether you’re travelling overseas, interstate, or even just the next city over, keep in mind that the weather could vary immensely.

Check the forecast before packing, or find out if there are any known changes in weather so you’re not caught in a snowstorm with a bathing suit and a bunch of shorts, or in the blistering heat with only sweaters, long johns, and jackets.

How long are you going for? If you’re going for a weekend, you don’t need to pack an entire large suitcase; on top of being cumbersome to carry, most of it will stay untouched in the bottom of your luggage.

In fact, depending on what you’ll be doing on your trip, you could probably get away with filling a backpack with a couple of shirts, pants, underwear and toiletries. Inversely, if you’re going to be away for a longer period, make sure you pack enough clothing to last you your stay, but try not to go overboard.

Keep it under the limit. If you’re flying, make sure you check what your maximum baggage weight is and weigh your luggage before going to the airport. Taking extra baggage can be super-expensive, depending on which airline you’re travelling with, and it’s particularly wasteful if you’re paying extra for things you don’t even need to bring along.

The important thing to remember is that you are going on a holiday; you’re supposed to be getting away from your daily life, not bringing it along with you.
