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.
If you’re like me and can only dream of owning anything Lacroix, then this inspired project should be right up your alley! This very luxe looking velvet belt is actually very simple to make, and you should be able to knock one up in an afternoon.
New new obsession is quilting (if you follow me on Pinterest you will be nodding your head!) so this little project caught my eye. Skirts are one of the easiest things to sew, all you need is some fabric and elastic, but this little quilt pocket adds some real sweetness to what would otherwise be a plain skirt. Just watch out, because you might get addicted to quilting too!
That’s right, neoprene - as in wetsuit fabric! Normally I would run a mile from any piece of clothing made from this material, but made into a flirty little pink mini skirt it has won me over! The fabric gives it a lovely structual quality and actually looks quite comfy! Plus the beauty of neoprene is you don’t have to hem it or add a zip.
Tulle skirts aren’t super practical, but sometimes you need something completely impractical to wear! It’s super girly, twirly and fun and you know what.. it’s not that hard to sew. Whip one up in white, pink, black or even grey would be sweet, and put it on when you’re needing a happy outfit!
The fox is my favourite animal, so I’m keen on any craft that involves one! My sister’s birthday is coming up and she loves eye masks so I’m thinking this might be a good project to make as a gift. Or for myself… hmm, maybe I’ll need to make two!
These pajama pants are so pretty - I would wear these outside! I’m on a bit of a fabric kick at the moment, and have been obsessively poring over the beautiful fabrics at Fabric Worm. I suggest you have a look there for some nice material to make a pair of pjs that are totally you! Straight up - this is an advanced sewing project! Mainly because it involves shirring, which involves using elastic thread… which can be very difficult! But it’s still a really fun project so if you’re keen, go for it!
If you have a kid, then you’ll love The Kids Dept. It’s full of amazing style for the little ones in your life! And though this necklace is meant to be for your mini-me, I see no harm in rocking it yourself! If you’re not a dog lover, try any little plastic animal - maybe an owl or fox?
In high school we were so lucky to be allowed to try lots of different art styles, and the one that I remember loving was screen printing. The unfortunate thing about screen printing though is that it’s quite full on with the equipment you need (and can get to be expensive). So when I read that this tutorial had a quick and easy way to screen print I was intrigued! Basically Calico Skies created a screen using an embroidery hoop, a pair of nylons and Mod Podge - all things which I have! Excellent! And there are so many different things you can create once you have learnt how to make a screen print - so go ahead and get to printing!
There’s nothing worse than wet feet. Well there are quite a few things worse but wet feet are still pretty high up there. These wraps not only add a touch of girly-ness to your boots but will help keep your feet warm and dry. Unless you are a habitual puddle stepper-inner like myself…
I love anything ginko patterned, so I was thrilled to see this gorgeous free pattern from cotton & cloud. The pattern is subtle and combined with that beautiful coloured yarn make for a perfect pair of socks to pad around in.
First off - how adorable are those little girls!? Second, how adorable is that little dress!? Actually I would love that dress too - luckily this tutorial teaches you how to make the dress using a dress you already have as a template. You will need a bit of experience with sewing to create this dress, but practice makes perfect!
Here’s a two-fer DIY for y’all - not only how to create your own flippy, comfy elastic waist skirt, but also a great how to on stenciling it! I love the Peter Pan stencil, but if it’s not your thing, you could go for hearts, geo print, stars, letters… try googling or pinteresting ‘stencilled skirt’ and get inspired!
