Craft to make you cooler

as in: less hot.

Can you even believe how hot it is today? I don't know about you, but I am not prepared for this kind of weather.

Here's a tutorial on How to Make Dirty Denim Distressed Cut Off Shorts. My favorite part is where you soak the shorts in coffee grounds to get that So-old-and-dirty-it-must-be-super-comfortable look that you'd normally pay an extra $50 for. The sandpaper is a great tip, too.

Have at 'em. But maybe check with your mom first. Or just head on over to the thrift store and go crazy.

If you need more ideas, remember the library has tons of books on sewing, altered objects, and cool things to make. And take a look at the upcoming programs at your library for great (and FREE) DIY opportunities.
