Gold dots dress (and gathered dress tutorial) I love this dots fabric. I really do. It’s double gauze cotton in natural colour and those irregularly shaped dots are actually gold.

Here is my Bleaching Tutorial, exclusively for Stencil Revolution members. In 2002, I was hired by a small clothing company to invent a process by which we could produce images on garments that would be more “tattooed” into the fabric than screened on.

A cloche hat in boiled wool (with tutorial) Hi everyone! The winter is coming fast here, so it was time to make the yearly hat I used duct tape to construct the pattern, and below you can follow the different steps.

Sometimes I feel like I ride on the coattails of creative people. Back in January as I was surfing my favorite blogs, I came across this post on Ultra Vroom about cardigans and fabric necklaces. I instantly fell in love and had to have a fabric necklace for my very own.
Five Minute Brimmed Beanie I have a fun quick tutorial for you today. It started out as an experiment.

It really does take just a few minutes. Here goes.

How to Make a Super Simple 15 Minute T-Shirt Tote | Apartment Therapy San Francisco As I've been cleaning out the closet and dresser drawers, I've come across quite a few t-shirts that are beyond their prime. I cut most of those shirts into rags but there are a couple of really cool printed shirts that I wasn't willing to let meet that fate.
If you don't already have an old shirt you can recycle for this purpose, you should be able to find one easily at a thrift store.
