How to prolong the life of your favourite print

My T-shirt was ruined, but I couldn't just throw it away. So I cut around the print and considered reusing it.
That time has come. I used my new black simple T-shirt. And also some pins.

My ironing board was very useful in order to keep the fabric of the T-shirt well flat. I pinned the margins of the fabric before sewing it.

Like I always say, you can sew by hand if you have enough patience and time. This time, I sewed by using the sewing machine.
And here it is: my new black T-shirt with my favourite old print.

DIY Birthday Card

For my nephew’s birthday, I wanted something special. A personalized birthday card seemed right.
What I used:
  - a piece of cardboard
  - acrylic paint
 -  glue
 -  a textile piece cut in the shape of squirrel
 - a round piece of Trolls cardboard
First, I doubled over the piece of cardboard.
Then, I applied some acrylic paint on the front page. White and golden acrylic paint.

I glued the textile piece in the shape of squirrel.
Inside the cardboard, I glued the round piece.

The squirrel birthday card is ready.
