No Sew Hobo Bag

One of their favorite hobbies that ladies of the Red Hat Society likes to do is Shop!  When we are out and about, parading through the mall or the grocery store, we love to look our red hat best.  We are a whimsical group that is always looking for creative ways to show our RHS spirit.  Pink Hatter Misty shared with us a very easy to make, practical, no sew Hobo Bag that she made and we thought it was so cute!  We decide to make one of our own.

Materials
Large or Medium T- shirt
Scissors
Paint and/ or stones for decorations


Cut the neck and sleeves out and cut an even amount of strips at the bottom of the t-shirt.

Turn shirt inside out. Beginning with one end of the shirt, tie the adjacent strips together into a knot (be sure not to make the knots too tight or too loose). Continue tying across the shirt until all strips have been tied, this will create a closed bottom.

                    

  Turn shirt right side out, and decorate with your favorite color or stone.



Your No Sew Hobo Bag!

DIY Rhinestone Headphones

Here is a twist to adding some bling to a plain pair of headphones.  They can be done in any color you wish.  Here at the Red Hat Society we have found a really inexpensive red plastic set that we jazzed up with purple rhinestones for our signature colors.  It is a fun and sassy way to listen to your music!

Materials
Glue
Rhinestones (variety of sizes)
Headphones
Small wooden stick ( to pick up the smallest stones)
Beginning at the bottom of the headphones add glue and stones working your way around and up the handle.  Be careful not to add too much glue, so that the ear piece does not stick and still has room to move once you put them on. 

Continue adding the stones in an upward pattern, doing a little on each side allowing the glue to dry and set.  Once the complete headphone is covered in rhinestones allow to set for 24 hours before wearing them.
