Tshirt/Tops folder using cereal box

Hi All,

Howz summer vacation coming along? Ours is kind of very busy between camp drop offs/pick ups, cooking over time. :)

My little one turned 9 last month and has been after me to assign her more chores. So she has been managing laundrying her clothes which includes folding too. Pants/shorts were easier but tops/tshirts made her whine. How much ever she tried, she would mess up while folding. I had seen this idea on Facebook few months back, so I decided to give it a try.

All that you need for this is either a shoe box or cereal box, scissor and tape.

Procedure to make the folder.

Open the cereal box carefully



Cut and take out the wider the peice and remove all tabs around


Depending on how long you want the tshirt fold, measure and cut the peice vertically. Do the same on the other wider peice too.


Tape this peice to the center peice


 Using the remaining peices of the box, tape the peices on to either side



Your TShirt folder is ready :)

Procedure to fold the tops.

She is soo happy with the folding tool that she asked if I could make one for her brother :)



Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful Summer ahead!!

Dining Chair Makeover with fabric

Hi All,

How are u? I am back after a long hiatus with the tutorial for our dining chairs makeover with fabric.

lets see how the chairs looked before and how they look now :)


before the tutorial, here is a before and after view when you walk into the dining room.




The chairs are very comfortable but the boring back always drove me crazy. When I told hubby dear that I am going to do some thing for the back, he didn't want something permanent and I didnt want to apply any appliques. While I was scoring internet for ideas, I came across this post from dimples and tangles and decided to use fabric.

All that you need for this project is fusible backing material, fabric, glue dots, trim and some hot glue.

- Trace the template using the chair. Cut the fusible backing material and fabric using the template




- Fuse the backing material to the fabric by ironing.

- Attach the fabric to the chair using the glue dots


-- Attach trim using hot glue


Chairs look beautiful with the back all decked up.

Did you do any makeovers using fabric? Would love to hear.

Have a wonderful week ahead and thank you for stopping by
