I love this embellished sweater, such an easy way to makeover something so simple. It’s sweet and graphic and perfect for this much colder weather we are getting.
If you’ve been with me for a while, you might remember when I posted a finger knit project that caused a lot of us pain. There were some helpful folks who tried to explain it, but I still totally failed! Hopefully you will have a bit more luck because this necklace is adorable! I think that once you get the hang of finger knitting you won’t be able to stop, so unlike me, keep persevering!
I know this dress is meant to be for a little girl, but oh my gosh it is so cute! I think it might be the mix of graphic and sweet. Even sweeter is that the pattern for this dress is free! Whip one up for the little one in your life, she’ll be the coolest kid on the playground!
Though I would be a little bit wary of putting chain in my hair if it was down, I think this would be super pretty to add to an updo!
I showed this DIY to my mum who said ‘that’s so 70’s’ but I still like it! Sometimes when all you feel like wearing is a tshirt and jeans, a big statement necklace is just the thing to make it special. Macrame is so easy to pick up too. If you want a smaller pendant, use smaller string. Just don’t wear it with bell bottoms or you’ll get looks from my mum!
If I had the figure and the bank balance to afford it, I would just live in Kate Spade’s clothes! They are quirky, timeless classics. All her pieces are cut beautifully, are colourful and fun. As I said though, it’s not going to happen but I can still get the style via sewing! This skirt is super cute, and the a-line shape is great for so many shapes & sizes.
I prefer big chunky rings - little ones get lost on my fingers! This one makes me think of riverbeds for some reason… and I love both the gold stone and the grey. Of course you don’t have to do gold if you’re a ‘silver’ girl, or even bronze!
One of my favourite onlin shops is BHLDN, and I could imagine these pom poms on there. Wouldn’t that headband be beautiful for a bridesmaid? Or if you made them smaller you could make them into shoe clips. Of course if you’re not getting married, it’s perfect as a brooch too!
Get it?! Haha! I know this might seem hard to do, but the back stitch is one of the easiest stitches you can do. Just make sure you buy yourself a hoop - it will keep your tshirt tight so your stitches will be nice and neat.
You guys know how I’m a little bit obsessed with cross stitch at the moment, so you wouldn’t be surprised to know how excited I was to see this DIY! It does require you to use a drill to make the holes but once that’s done you’re gold. Maybe practice on a cheap pair before your ‘good’ ones. Also make sure that whatever you design doesn’t cover your eyes!
MOTHER’S DAY GIFTS, DAY 2
Can you believe this is hand printed?! It looks like something you’d pick up in a store, but no - this is made with fabric and one of Martha Stewart’s new stencils. That Martha, so stylish! Personally my mum loves scarves so I know she would love another one (especially one that I had made myself). Add a nice soap or a pair of earrings and you’ve got a truly special gift.
I promise you guys, you can’t get an easier DIY than this necklace! And of course because it’s so easy that means you can make lots right?! Haha! Of course if you don’t have the little crystal don’t stress - you can leave it off or pop on a different charm. So many ways to make it yours!
I’m gonna do it. I’m gonna get my ears pierced. I keep finding these awesome earring DIYs that I know would be super easy to make and look adorable (especially those black and white ones, eep!) but can’t wear them. Though this could lead to a really bad spending binge on gorgeous earrings… that’s a price I’m willing to pay!
After lugging about 15 books back to the library, it occured to me that having a book bag would be a good idea. Something big, sturdy and bright so that I wouldn’t lose it! And then I happened upon this DIY - craft kismet!
Ponytails don’t have to be boring - tie one of these sweet little hair ties on and you’ve got an instant stylish look!
