I'm a huge fan of kitschy, unconventional accessories — almost to a fault. From glitter clutches to owl purses , I like pieces that command attention just because someone had the guts to design them into reality. Christopher Kane and Kate Spade are two designers I admire in this department, they are a reminder that the fashion world doesn't have to be serious and highbrow all the time—there is room for a bit of fun and whimsy. When I first saw Kate Spade's "Charm-Travel Magazine" clutch , I knew I wanted to figure out a way to make it my own with a vintage magazine cover. British Vogue 's magazine archives has an incredible library of old covers spanning from the 1800s to today, (Good luck spending less than 20 minutes in there.) Flipping through the decades of beautiful covers, it was fascinating to see how the magazine has grown and evolved over a century.
This has quickly become my favorite DIY project. I made it and planned my whole outfit around it the next day. Yes, that means that I broke out the fur in August. And yes, some find this seasonally offensive.
Llevábamos tiempo queriendo hacer algún DIY con plumas, pero no estábamos seguros de qué exactamente. Las plumas este año siguen siendo tendencia aunque nos ha parecido verlas ya en dosis más moderadas. Por eso nos limitamos a hacer un accesorio… …y este maxi clutch de Bershka era la pieza perfecta. Tan sólo necesitamos un par de metros de plumas, pasamanería en negro y pegamento textil. Es importante utilizar para este tipo de DIY pegamento textil que sirva para cuero.
When H&M asked us to DIY a boho-inspired item for their summer issue, découpage was the first thing that came to mind. Honestly, does it get any better than customizing a simple handbag with a brilliant floral print? However you create it, it’ll be satisfying to know that you’ve designed yourself a one of a kind bag!
wow, this kind of bag so beautiful, if you have the interest should go to the lovely shoes and bags,I think pretty good. http://www.lovelyshoes.net/admin/ by Dec 29
Wild Things Tote by Courtney Russel from Two Straight Lines I have monsters on the brain as we in the States near Halloween, as well as the upcoming release of the film Where the Wild Things Are. This fun tote project would make a perfect Trick o' Treat bag, library tote, or even a slightly spooky gift bag. You will need: *Pre-made canvas tote *Pen and paper for sketching *Fabric or felt *Scissors *Fabric glue (I use Alene's because it doesn't soak through to the front of the fabric) *Fine point permanent black or brown marker *Other embellishments such as yarn, cording, buttons, ric-rac, googly eyes Optional *1" Masking tape *Craft paint or fabric paint *Paintbrush Step one: Gather "monster inspiration" with your kids. Do you have any stuffed monsters or monster story books?
Do you have a lot of purses? I do! I posted about sprucing up purses before using scarves and chain here . This DIY is all about hand-painting whatever design you want to bring your purse to the next level.
After stumbling across this photo, I knew I wanted to take what looks like a rolled up newspaper, and turn into a clutch. Perfect to pair with a classic outfit, I love how this becomes a newsworthy statement piece. A flat clutch works best for this project, and after spotting one at H&M for under $20, I raced home, grabbed my ModPodge and the latest headlines to create the look. There are a couple ways to do this DIY:
What you’ll need: Victim bag, Conical Studs (buy here or ebay), sharp scalpel, metal ruler or butterknife to bend prongs, and about 3 movies to watch while studding. Stud away! I’m not really going to instruct people exactly how to stud, it’s the easiest thing since peeing in your pants. Thanks to Juli from Pigeon.Toed for advising me to get a vintage bag, I hadn’t thought about it when I started planning this DIY but then I found this bag in Rockit and it became so clear I didn’t want an A.Wang replica. <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
