Welcome to the first day of Refashionista! I'm so glad you're here. Our first guest needs NO introduction, but I'm going to give her one anyhow. This is Disney from Ruffles and Stuff (and her gorgeous daughter). Her blog was one of the first craft blogs I found and I fell in love with it.
Ah, end of semester procrastination. I should have been doing a bunch of other things the other morning, but instead I thought, "I think I'll make a scarf with that old shirt." So I did. It was really easy.
I love this purse made from recycled soda cans . It is so cute and of course eco-friendly. Supplies Needed:

We had grapes this weekend. So? They were really good. Seedless white grapes and they came in one of those plastic bags , with cuts all over to make it stretchy. Hours after we had the grapes, while in the kitchen, my eye fell upon the plastic bag again. It was just a glimpse, but enough for me to hear it scream: please, make me!
I realized this afternoon that I basically explain this technique to an Etsy Labs visitor at least once a day, but had never put the instructions online. So, here it is. Fusing! Plastic! Bags! Do you have one zillion plastic drugstore and grocery bags under your sink, or perhaps smushed into a drawer?

A great gift for someone who is moving away- remind them of where they're coming from, or get them excited about their destination!

Video Podcast: How to Make a Handbag out of a Recycled Book » Curbly | DIY Design Community « Keywords: handbag, purse, bag, bookI have a penchant for purchasing stuff that’s cool, but for which I don’t have specific plans or use. Case in point: I have piles of pulp and sci-fi novels from the 40s-60s. The art and colors are amazing, and the language provides for ridiculous quotes for ages. But after I slice out the illustrations, and force my way through the first and last chapters so I can say I ‘read’ them, these dimestore masterpieces don’t escape from their cardboard homes often. Thus, enter this project: an adorable handbag featuring the incredible art of ‘literature’.
I've always loved taking everyday items and making them into something interesting. Ever since I was a little crafty kid I loved devouring books that taught me how to make little dolls from clothespins, beads from rolled up magazines, and little fairy ornaments from wire and fake flower petals. The first time I saw my friend wearing a bracelet made from a fork a few years ago, I knew I had to try it (*ahem Carly ;)). I wrote up a tutorial a while back, but I've had some questions about the directions I gave so I decided to make a proper tutorial with a video!
Old spoons can be used to make great jewelry. If you're looking for a way to make eye-catching jewelry, you may find yourself in search of a spoon bracelet making tool. What are Spoon Bracelets? Spoon bracelets first appeared in the 1960s and 1970s as a popular accessory among those who loved tie-dye t-shirts and Birkenstocks.

While the hippie subculture is less visible today, spoon bracelets are still popular as fun accessories and handmade gifts for both guys and girls.
