I came across the Vans Girls blog recently and its so much fun! There’s a bunch of DIY projects that I thought were amazing and wanted to share them with you! I really liked this DIY No Sew Blanket…probably because I absolutely fell in LOVE with the fabric she used! Next stop…fabric store! Watch the video above to walk you through the steps to make this simple, yet awesome No Sew Blanket! I’ll definitely be sharing more of the Vans Girls DIY videos soon.
I just saw this beyond brilliant and amazing DIY while browsing Lipgloss and Black <3 this is absolutely genius. How come I didn't think of it?! Why spend hundreds on the Jeffrey Campbell boots when you can just make them yourself?!
Granted this DIY will be messy, but a little glitter fun never hurt anyone… right? Check out the full DIY and more pictures on their blog!
I got a little crafty again last night. This time I made a plain tote bag and then drew a triangle related design on it. I sketched this out before on a sheet to see if I liked it, I might frame it once I get around to buying frames! The reason why I made this tote is because I need to take one (or two) with me to Florida this weekend, just in case. You can never be too prepared. It’s light and easy so it can fit into anything.
Here is the design in detail, you will probably be seeing it again soon :) I did a rough sew on the tote, accented with a red thread on one side. I used a fabric marker for the drawing.
I tweeted about this little DIY this past week, as promised – here it is! I created a little pouch from scratch. I had this gray zipper laying around, some muslin fabric and ta-da. I carved out a cute stamp and I must say it turned out really cute.
I posted about tin-things just few days ago, I was originally inspired by this candle tin I got from Anthropologie. Whenever I go there, I almost always end up walking out with a candle (because they smell divine!) I love the crazy pattern on this top, but the candle isn’t all melted so I have to clean this baby out and maybe I’ll use it as cute desk storage… I’ll keep you posted ;)
Just to sum some things up, I’m super out of my loop with DIYs and all sorts of other things. I’m focused (or not really) on my weekend trip to Orlando next week. Packing, thinking of packing, not thinking. I have a lot of things on my mind and I feel like I’m not getting anything done. I promise you’ll be seeing the necklaces soon … and maybe some other things too! Yay :D
I’ve been very inspired by Elsie’s Project ReStyle and wanted to be a part of it! I have this plain and boring filing cabinet that always gets shoved into a corner and just stared at it yesterday and thought…that may actually have potential! With a vision already in mind I surfed the web for inspiration and hopped onto Etsy to get my supplies. I came across some great filing cabinets that have been beautifully redone and amazingsupplies on Etsy. I’m going to use this vintage floral wallpaper found on Stablemates Vinatage and these cute handles found on Rustic Relics that are pictured above!! Now I just have to wait for them to arrive and then get to it!! Stay tuned for the finished project! So excited!
Last night I got a little inspired to make a necklace out of random bits I had laying around. I meant to do something with this blue rock I had, originally from some other necklace, not really sure. I might have stolen it from my sister – yikes!
But anyhoo … I made a pretty funky necklace out of it and I’m super excited to share it today. Yay!
I have a really big frame (I call it the big ass frame) from a mirror – my sister took it apart, I’ve painted it before in silver so now I’m hoping to do some sort of display and jewelry hanger with it.
I’ve found some amazing inspirations for picture frames and jewelry hangers. I never know how these DIYs will turn out when I’m thinking them up in my head. I’m a little discouraged because the frame I have is so HUGE. I’ll let you know how it goes… now I leave you with pretty pictures :)
It’s a brand new week so I’m posting a new DIY I have planned, it might take some time for it to be actually completed but I’m really excited about this one! With the lovely fabric below and some shear luck, I’m planning on recreating it into a cute summer dress/tunic.
It’s not just fabric but it used to be a sweater (?) that was super super large. I have an idea, and I’m sticking to it. I really hope it will be wearable after I’m done haha :)
