My bed is a mattress on the ground, two pillows and a bed sheet. Very basic and boring. I’m a 30 year old man. This is not right. So this week I decided to do something about it … but on a budget.

I hoped on the ‘gram for some inspiration, went to the thrift store for the majority of my materials, popped into the hardware store and stopped off at the garden center. Then I got to work.

But here’s the thing, black is hard to photograph so I had to do a close up and a close up means showing my less then ideal neckline and cold sore I’ve been rocking. But I figure the truth will set me free … so there it is.

I liked the one from last week enough to have the confidence to go out and buy new fabric for a new sweatshirt.

I’ve been meaning to sew myself some black T-shirts but have been putting it off because I just haven’t made the time and I felt like it’d make for a boring video. So this week I decided, screw it, I’ll make those tees and I’ll make the video entertaining …

Last week I tried making a crewneck sweatshirt for the first time and it turned out pretty decently, so I went to the fabric store this week and bought myself some new material to sew one EXACTLY to my heart’s content.

Once it was done though, I came to a realization about my style and myself that I needed to talk out. A trip to my therapist was in order. Of course my pesky professor couldn’t leave me alone for a week as well.

I’ve worn it a couple times this week. I like it.

Autumn is around the corner so I decided to take my first stab at sewing a crew neck sweater. I went to the thrift store and picked up two oversized sweaters as the material and got to work. Upcycling, you know. But also, why waste money and new fabrics if I’ve never done it before, right?!

I also checked in with my crops one more time.

And finally, a new character joins the cast. Professor Cornelius Quiring. Oh boy …

… and I played dress-up to try them out as different looks.

Last week I started making a pair of shorts and I got them about halfway done, so this week, I finished them. Makes sense, right?

And I didn’t bandy about this week either, I just got to it … I think.

After I finished them, I even tried out a few different looks of how I can wear them. Turns out it’s fun to do a bit of roleplaying.
