There’s nothing worse than cold feet, so these removable fur ‘collars’ for your sneakers are perfect. And they couldn’t be easier to make - the only thing that’s going to be hard is choosing which fur you’re going to use!
Since my mum has been down, I’ve been watching a lot more ‘normal’ tv (i.e. on an actual tv and not on my laptop!) and as such have seen more than my fair share of Laverne and Shirley. And I have to say, I loved Laverne’s big L on her tops! OK, maybe I wouldn’t wear one everyday, like her, but I still think it’s cute. So I was excited to see this DIY by Mood (thank you Mood!) because I’ve got everything for it. Now I can rock an ‘E’ sweat shirt and be thankful I don’t have Lenny and Squiggy for neighbours!
I will remember 2013 as the year of neon! And wouldn’t it be good to end the year with this mod clutch at your New Year’s party? That little hint of neon gives it a bit of a kick, and should be pretty easy to whip up for experienced sewers.
I’m not sure why I like this necklace, but it really took my eye. Perfect for those of us who absentmindedly play with their necklaces! Choose a few different colours of spray paint and make a few to give as gifts and a couple for yourself (or if you don’t want to spray paint them, get your nuts in shades of gold and silver)
I know some people think coin purses are naff but I think they’re sweet and incredibly handy. Mainly because I have a terrible habit of chucking my coins straight into my handbag and then having to scrabble around to find them. A coin purse is a much better solution! Though I think I would have to sew onto mine ‘don’t spend me’.
My current obsession is with dainty necklaces. I always kind of steered clear of them due to being bigger, but I figure you should wear whatever you want! ‘d love to add this little bow necklace to my collection - it would go so well with my Summer dresses!
This last Winter I became obsessed with booties. I think I have about six pairs now! So I was interested to see these tricks to decorating a plain pair. I particularly love the middle pair with the chain, because it’s not permanent and… I like shiny things!
I’m all about tassels - on tshirts, bags, skirts, shoes… pillows, curtains, vases, you name it! The nice thing about these tassels is that they are made from soft tshirt fabric so you can pop them anywhere. As My Poppet suggests, they would be great made into bunting, or make some mini ones for your Chrissy tree!
My daily ‘uniform’ is basically a dress, a cardigan and tights, so I love tight DIYs! And these ones are cute to boot - I’m thinking maybe little stars would work great as well?
While the weather here gets into the 30s, the weather up there gets cooler. If you’re up there, here is a cute DIY to get you in the mood for Winter! If you can pin and sew, you can make this. Though you could also add fusing to the back of it and iron it on if you don’t have a sewing machine.
Can you guess what this faux agate is made from? Don’t look at my tags! OK, so you looked, it’s polymer clay! This is just so cool, and there are so many things you could make with these pretties (other than just as pretty decoration) Think earrings, coasters, pendants, even frame them for art!
Oh man, I really, really, really want those headphones! Well that’s not going to happen anytime soon, but I’m pretty keen on that case. I’ve been looking for a good studded case everywhere, but I think I’m going to have to make my own. The ones I’ve seen are either in those dodgy hard plastic cases that don’t protect the screen, or are a hideous colour (like the weird orange one I saw today!). Not to mention the ones that haven’t had the spikes attached properly so they fall off in your handbag! Making your own means you get the case that you want, the right sized studs and the colour you want (I’ve noticed a lack of silver studs - everything is gold or bronze at the moment!). Click through for the whole tutorial. And if you’re feeling generous, click through the link above and get me those headphones (I promise to love you forever!)
It seems that the colour of Summer in Australia is going to be pale blue, and this statement necklace would look fantastic with any piece in that colour. And don’t fret about the difficulty level on this one - the hardest part is probably stitching on the pretty embellishment!
This necklace is made using epoxy clay and decorated with gold leaf. I’ve never tried epoxy clay, but it seems pretty straightforward to use. Chic Steals has a great tutorial on how to use the clay and other tips and tricks - I also love the way she created a layered necklace in one - so much easier than trying to stack chains that always end up tangled!
OK, so I wouldn’t ever wear a skirt with a split that high, but I’m still in love with this skirt and it would be so easy to modify! And maxi skirts are my favourite thing to wear in Summer - breezy and pretty and easy to wear with heels or flats!
