DIY T-Shirt Crafts Book Release and Giveaway!

I need to brag about a good friend. Adrianne Surian of Happy Hour Projects has been one of my best blogging buddies since our blogs were in their infancy. I am not exaggerating when I say I talk to her on almost a daily basis! A lot of work goes on behind the scenes of a blog and she’s been a mentor, a cheerleader, a huge support to me for many years. So when she told me she was signing a contract with a publishing company to write a book I was beyond ecstatic for her! I wanted to scream it from the rooftops! She put so much work into this and DIY T-Shirt Crafts is now available for purchase! I was so excited to get a copy in the mail this week and wanted to share the details with all of you. Plus there is a giveaway at the end of this post! 

This book is chock-full of t-shirt craft ideas. Many of them made from one of my favorite mediums: T-shirt Yarn! I actually never realized how many crafty things you can do with T-shirt yarn! Adrianne really took to the time to beautifully photograph all of her tutorials with step-by-step instruction as well as providing detailed explanations. I am so impressed each project and such a variety of ideas. 

The book is mapped out in four parts:
1. Jewelry and Scarves
2. Accessories
3. For the Home
4. Great Gifts

Here are some of my favorite projects that are featured in the book: 
 Braided Yarn Bowl
 Pom Pom Garland
Knotted Hanging Planter
Ruffle Scarf
Yep, they are all made from repurposed t-shirts!
Best part of all, Adrianne is hosting a reader giveaway! 5 copies of the book are available!

About the author:

Adrianne Surian is a west Michigan mom of 2 who’s been crafting long since before it was cool.  She founded Happy Hour Projects in 2011 as a way of sharing hour-or-less crafts, accessories, and recipes with other busy people who want to add some creativity to their days.  Her philosophy of “use what you have” when crafting prompted her to explore the versatility of t-shirts, and fifty projects later, DIY T-Shirt Crafts was published by Adams Media.

About the book:

DIY T-Shirt Crafts explores 50 ways you can recycle a t-shirt into other kinds of accessories, gifts, and home decor.  It transforms an old tee into something else entirely, and you can complete every project without using a sewing machine.  True to Adrianne’s quick-craft addiction, the projects are all designed to be completed in an hour or less.

      Dear Basil & Vera,Our prayers and thoughts are with you both on the loss of your beautiful Mom. What a fine lady in every sense; she was such a joy to everyone who entered her life. You will miss her terribly but wonderful and beautiful memories will filter through from time to time. I’d love to pay my respects to her at her service in August. Would you be kind enough to send me what arrangements will be made at that time.Thank you and may God bless you both,Gaynl & Dayle Mandle
