Pimp my Polo and CWTS

Okay before we get started today, I want to clarify that Soapbox Saturday means we all answer READER'S questions.  Some of you thought they were my questions and e-mailed me directly with answers.  Some of you thought they were my questions and therefore thought I was pregnant.  Nope.  Sorry.  Thank you to everyone who pitched in, though.  You all had some amazing answers and it makes me thrilled to see you all helping each other out.

Now, for today's tutorial you'll have to make a quick stop over to the blog Shwin and Shwin.  I'm guesting posting there where they've been having a fun contest called Project Toddler Runway.  There's lots to see.  This week is a boy theme and they asked if I'd whip something up.  So, I've titled my tutorial, "Pimp My Polo."  I'm embellishing a polo shirt and you'll find it right HERE.  Here's a sneak peak.

And you might also want to head over to see the first round of Crafting With the Stars.  The theme is dollar store/thrift and my partner's project is ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.  It's so cool I want to sneak into her house and steal it.  Really.  Click on the button below to head over.  You can vote for THREE projects.

Thanks for visiting!  See you tomorrow.


  1. saw this over at Shwin & Shwin this morning, love it! Pimp my polo? genius!!!

  2. Which project is your partner's? I love them all, how do I choose just 3 of them?

  3. I don't own a sewing machine, do you think it would be possible to sew the shoulder strap things on by hand?

    I can't wait to try and pimp some polos!

    I've got a 'to do' list a mile long, and the majority of the projects are ones that I've seen you your blog!

  4. Wow...this is truly uncanny. I literally just came home from Target ten minutes ago with a plain boys' polo, with hopes of personalizing it somehow for my friend's son. So I went online hoping to find some inspiration, stopped at your blog first, and what do I find?!? ...Amazing!! Thanks Cheri!

  5. I laughed when I saw this as one of my latest blog posts was titled 'Pimp my Playroom'.

    Very cute stuff.

  6. Meg - If you're really good at hand-sewing I'm sure you could. I don't have a lot of experience sewing without a machine, so I can't say for sure.


  7. What is the font you used for the #4?

  8. Bom dia!
    Eu gostaria de dizer que amo o seu blog, e estou usando muitas das idéias para ensinar as irmas da Sociedade do Socorro no Brasil.
    Muita obrigada por suas idéias e inspiraçoes!!!
