Today I was crafty…
I know that’s not a term I use to describe myself very frequently but I would say that this afternoon/evening, it qualified. So I was looking through my Pinterest account this afternoon and I found a website that explained how to make an infinity scarf out of an old t-shirt. I took one look and had to try it. With that, I grabbed an old large t-shirt that I never ever wear. [It was a shirt that had to fit over my winter coat because I wore it during an outdoor campaign for the National Marrow Donor Program’s Be The Match Foundation of which I am a part.] The website called for an XL or XXL shirt but all I had was a L so I just rolled with it.
I chopped off the bottom seam.
Then I sheared off the top section right under the armpits.
With only a band remaining, I stretched…
And stretched it.
I don’t know how much it helped honestly, thanks to the composition of the shirt, but it worked a bit. And there you have it, a cute little infinity scarf.
It was a nice pick-me-up after my long day at work. I spent four hours alone in the lab doing DNA extraction and back-up segregation. I was alone because all the full-time employees had a meeting, that unfortunately lasted three hours, and no other hourly people were in today. Sadness, right? I even had to have lunch by my lonesome. Anyways, this craft picked up my spirits and fueled my workout and the rest of my night. I think I’ll wear my creation tomorrow. =D Now I’m off to bed because I have Cancer Genetics at 8am and I still technically have stuff to read… Whoops. I should do that right? Later friends!
Questions: Do you craft?
What do you do when you need a pick-me-up?
