I love that my friends are sharing their crafty work with me to post on the World of Laura B. This simple craft comes from my good friend, Jersey Girl C. She may have lived in the south for a long time, but she is all Jersey Girl. Kind of the ying to my Midwest peaches and cream yang.
Now I was going to rewrite her directions here in my own words, but I thought it would be fun to compare directions that a Jersey Girl would write vs. a Midwest Girl. So here it goes:
Midwest Girl: ”Take a pair of old jeans you no longer wear”
Jersey Girl: ”Take a pair of jeans you ripped the a** out of because you gained weight”
Midwest Girl: ”Carefully cut each leg off below the inseam”
Jersey Girl: ”Cut the legs of said jeans off”
Midwest Girl: Fill each leg with stuffing. This project used unrolled 99-cent Ikea pillows. And tie each side closed with bandana
Jersey Girl: Fill each leg with stuffing. This project used unrolled 99-cent Ikea pillows. And tie each side closed with bandana (we actually spoke the same language here!)
Midwest Girl: To close the pillow ends, use two coordinating colored bandanas for each pillow. Fold each bandana corner to corner to form a triangle, then cut in half along the fold. Tie coordinating halves to each end of the pillow.
Jersey Girl: Use two bandanas but cut them in half like triangles. Tie closed.
Yes, our styles of writing are a little different – hers is straight to the point and mine is a little more flowery. We complement each other well.
This simple and cute project cost Jersey Girl C less than $5 to make both pillows. Not only crafty, but thrifty as well.
If you have a favorite project or craft you would like to share, let me know.
