A reusable sandwich wrap I made for my daughter for her school lunches using this tutorial by Jenn at it’s so sweet. I was just so sick of using those plastic baggies, this is much better - it doubles as a placemat and it’s wipe-able :)

McQueen!  Keep your manicure   out and about, while your palm stays calm and carries on.   Alexander  McQueen’s fingerless gloves inspired these delicious DIY glovettes, created with our friends at Who What Wear.  To create your  own pair, cut the feet off of a pair of socks,  which leaves you with a  “tube”.  Cut all of the fingers off minus the  thumb then snip  off approximately 1/2” of thumb’s fingertip. Make a  1”-vertical  slit on the outside of the tube to create the thumb  hole.  Slide gloves inside the tube, pulling the thumb through the hole.  Find two sparkly  brooches or buttons and glue thin tube shaped beads with a hot glue gun  or super glue.  Once dry, pin or sew to the top of the glove.  
Every. Time.
