My Creative Power Jam

So basically sometimes to amuse myself I try to make things.

Possibly the title should read. "not so creative".

The bottom line is...I'm not really that super creative but when I'm given some time alone with seriously nothing to do I will eventually squeeze out some sort of project to preserve my sanity.

So this is what I did.
Nothing spectacular but maybe it will inspire some more of you non seamstress people out there.

I've had this for awhile and the strap was starting to break so I was going to throw it away.
Instead I made this. (ok, maybe made isn't the right term.)

Pretty much I just cut off the top part and it already had elastic so it was a no sew project for me.
Same with this next one.

Viola! Super comfortable skirt to just be casual and lazy in.

Fashionable? Maybe not. Comfortable? Definitely!

How's that for a lazy post Monday?
I hope you guys had a splendorific weekend and are all super stoked about another week.

Me? Well I'm still recovering from mini vacation.
