DIY Tummy Time Mirror

 Baby hated tummy time, until I made this mirror!!!!!
I searched everywhere for a big enough baby safe mirror to do tummy time. I ended up making my own.

I don't have a tutorial, but if you can sew, this is just a "frame", like a picture frame, but made out of fabric, in which I inserted the mirror. I made the mirror with a thin sheath of acrylic that my husband bought for me at a hardware store, and mylar. 
Mylar is a reflective film used for a lot of stuff, I don't really know for what, but I found it a hydroponics' store. I cut it to fit the acrylic sheet and then used spray adhesive to stick it in place. 
Baby loves!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rorschach Test T-shirt (Inkblot)

I made this T shirt a while ago, I think it is an easy technique that will look great in a mini skirt as well. 
You need a plain T shirt, fabric paint, a thin cardboard, and pins. I used a gift box for the card board. 

 Mark the center front top and bottom of the T shirt with pins. Fold the cardboard in half. You want the cardboard to cover the area that you want painted.
 Place the cardboard inside the T shirt and pin them together, matching the fold to the center front. Pin them together tight.
I used Tulip fabric paint, the neon pink has subtle glitter, FAB!!!!
Make the desired design with paint. Take into account anatomical landmarks, so you don't end up with strange looking boobs!!!!!

Fold the cardboard with the T shirt in one swift motion, press with your hands, and open quickly as well, without dragging the fabric.

Now repeat for every T shirt in your closet, in every color possible!!!!!!
