So I’ve been thinking about trying make a handbag lately. This might be an overly ambitious project, so I decided to start small with supplies I could find at the local craft store and make a studded suede wallet/pouch. (Uh, use caution when googling ‘leather stud’…) If you’re constantly switching your things from one purse to another like I am then you understand the need to keep organized.
Já faz um tempinho que detectamos uma onda de pulseiras de corrente decoradas com trabalhos em crochê e linhas nas lojas mais bacanas de acessórios. O trabalho é supervalorizado porque muitas vezes o material da pulseira é de ouro, e o trabalho artesanal também tem o seu valor. Quem virou febre da modinha lá fora e vende suas peças no Net-a-Porter é o designer Aurélie Bidermann . As joias são feitas com materiais nobres, e as correntes são todas de ouro 18k.
Climbing rope ? Bracelets ? Count us in. Inspired by Miansai ‘s colorful, stackable and adjustable rope bracelets, we were determined to add another do-it-yourself bracelet to our growing collection.
Our love of Minnatonka moccasins and obsession with Balenciaga ‘s Fall 2010 shoes made this DIY we created for Foam Magazine a no brainer. With just a tube of Tulip Soft Fabric Paint , a pair of paintbrushes (one thin and one thick) and a pair of suede moccasins, you’ll be ready to make your own color block shoes. ( Tulip Soft Fabric Paint is best paint to use, as it is highly opaque, flexible once it dries and great for suede.) To paint the tops of the moccasins, the fringe will have to be tucked under. Simply untie the bow, pull the suede strings out of all the holes (note how it is assembled), and fold the flap under. (Click images to enlarge)
Friends are Flowers you pick for yourself, and I’m lucky to say that I’m blessed with the worlds most amazing bouquet of besties! Actions speak louder than words, so don’t just tell your friends how much they mean to you, show them! My friends at WHO WHAT WEAR and I agree that the demand for colorful and cool friendship bracelets using the COBRA stitch are back in a major way! I’ve been drawn to MARNI’S take on the friendship bangle creation for quite some time. Get inspired and get involved.
I bleached the crap out of these pants! I think I could do it one more time, but it was close enough. I bleached it just like I bleached this shirt a while back. I really like these $13 gray pants from forever 21, but when I accidentally spilled bleach on the bottoms, I thought hmmm what the heck?!
shirt: stole from sister-in-law Jacket: Nordstrom pants: 7s Jewlery: thrifted and f21 shoes: Guess Supplies: Follow the instructions on the dye box as how to mix the hot water, salt, and dye (you can add soda ash, but I didn't). I used Tangerine orange RIT powder dye, which was only 2 bucks! You will need some sort of bucket of container to put the dye in. It was convenient doing it in a pot because I could boil the water and keep it warm if I needed to on the stove.
