Take a plain jumper and make it sparkly and fun with a little bit of sequin trim! I like ‘meow’ but you can choose whatever you want to write, or you could make a shape - star, heart, etc. So easy to create but so fun!
I always try to feature short hair tutorials but sometimes they’re hard to come by. That’s why I like this ‘hair jewelry’ - you can wear this on short hair as well as long - the two flowers are attached to bobby pins. This is so customisable, and you could even wear these as a cardigan clip!
Kimonos seem to be still going strong in fashion world - which I love because they are great for covering up arms, are lightweight and… I just like the look of them! But for some reason they’re so expensive for what is essentially a piece of fabric with a few stitches! Anna + Evers shows us how to make a kimono in two very easy steps - the hardest part will be finding your fabric!
I love everything Hunger Games - the books and the movies! So I totes love (haha, puns!) this bag by Whimseybox. The amazing art is by trebory6 - he’s created a seal for the Capitol and the 12 districts - just choose which one you want to represent (and don’t forget to say thank you for his amazing work!)
I’m pretty sure y’all have a pair of shoes in your wardrobe that you love (or loved) but don’t wear anymore for a myriad of reasons - the colour is outdated, the heels are battered or they have just seen better days. Well with some fabric and Mod Podge, you can create your own custom pair of shoes - when you see the before pic for these shoes I think you will be as inspired as I was to DIY!
If you’re keen on making yourself a piece of jewelry but want to start with something easy, then this simple but fun faux horn is a great place to start! I love the gold dipped top (or you could do bronze, silver, pink!) You can leave it on it’s own on the necklace or add a couple of other charms to the mix. Whatever you decide, you’ll end up with a piece that’s as unique as you!
I love cross stitch anything so this sweatshirt is right up my alley - and you don’t actually have to have needle and thread to make it! All these ‘stitches’ are made with a paint brush and fabric paint. Of course, you don’t have to do this on a sweatshirt - paint it on a tshirt, a tote bag or even a pillow!
What a great way to use up those lonely one of a pair earrings! These bracelets are easy to tie together and would make a great gift for any fashion forward mum for Mother’s Day!
Wrap skirts are great! Easy to pop on (and you can fasten it to any length!). Don’t let the pleats on this skirt scare you away from trying to create this pretty piece - it’s all about pinning, pinning, pinning! This tutorial uses buttons to fasten the skirt, but there’s nothing stopping you from extending the waistband so you can tie the skirt closed.
Want something to wear for Easter that isn’t pastel and featuring Easter eggs or Trix style rabbits?! Download this vintage bunny image and whip up your own personalised tshirt - super cute for both you and any moppets you have!
One of the reasons I love ‘plain’ pieces of jewelry is because they are so versatile - they add something nice to a ‘busy’ outfit, simplicity to a plain outfit and you can easily mix them with other pieces of jewelry. This beautiful copper cuff ticks all the boxes and is so easy to make - just make sure you sand the ends so you don’t hurt your skin!
What I love about this little lady is that she has so many uses! I know my niece would love her on a necklace (and is so much sweeter than the plastic junk I see in the shops). But I can see her hanging from a pair of keys, or even attached to a zipper on a bag! You could even paint little doll versions of your friends and attach them to gifts!
I really love this bracelet - the combo of pale pink, gold and white ticks lots of boxes for me! Those little gold pieces in the middle of the bracelet are actually from the hardware store (they’re compression sleeves from the plumbing section!). Whip up a couple and gift to friends ‘just because’, I’m sure they’ll love it just as much as me!
Felt bows must be one of the easiest things to make - all you need is felt, scissors and a hot glue gun. But what to do with your little felt bows other than put them in your hair? Brit + Co has your answer - attach them to everything! I particularly love the dog bow tie - great for when your dog is going for an important interview or attending a wedding!
This is a really simple sewing project that will give any outfit a real pop of vintage colour! The best thing is, you can also use this tie in your hair if you want, or to wrap around a bag handle or as a belt.
