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. Sadly these pictures can not capture the gold colour very well. I want to use the fabric as much as possible, so I came up with this design.
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. I immediately thought about bleach and began two years of research and testing. I worked with chemists, fabric manufacturers, and artists.

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. I use a old pare of nolyn stockings and taped over them. I used a string to draw the center, front to back and side to side.
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. I saw $1 cuffed beanies at Walmart and wondered if I could add a brim to them to make them look a little bit like these Colombia brand ones.

Woolfiller - Heleen Klopper Woolfiller is een uitvinding van Heleen Klopper, product- ontwerper en sinds jaren gefascineerd door wol en vilt en hun specifieke eigen- schappen. In oktober 2009 won zij met Woolfiller de Doen | Materiaalprijs. Volgens de jury is het product ‘briljant in zijn eenvoud. Door gebruik te maken van de bijzondere eigenschappen van wol - de weerhaakjes hechten vast - heeft Klopper een doe-het-zelfpakket ontwikkeld waarmee iedereen op eenvoudige en originele wijze de gaatjes in zijn of haar wollen kleding, tapijten, gordijnen of andere textielproducten kan repareren.
I made this thing. It’s pretty cool. It’s a convertible dress that’s basically a circle and two straps, so it’s really easy, inexpensive, and crazy versatile. It’s been around forever and everyone seems to love it (in fact, part of the reason I’m posting this is to answer some questions for people I’ve run into), and I can hardly believe how close I came to not making it at all. I first found the instructions at a blog called rostitchery, and then I came across a second set at Cut Out + Keep.
7th April 2014 Greetings from sunny New Zealand! I feel so lucky to have spent the last few days enjoying every moment with friends and family on the gorgeous island of Waiheke – if you ever get the chance to visit this part of the world you must (must must!). I can’t even put into words how lovely it is here – every single bay and little cottage looks like it’s straight out of Wes Anderson’s Moonrise Kingdom! One of my good friends got married a few days ago at Mudbrick Winery, and it was one of those long nights I’ll no doubt remember forever (luckily long after the morning-after-headache has subsided!). I thought I would share with you some of the details of this (picture perfect) wedding as well as what I threw on for the day – a hot pink lace dress and (never one to leave the house not wearing a new DIY) which I decided to toughen with a little DIY.

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. Hold the collar under your arms, and make sure it's long enough that you'll be comfortable wearing it as a dress. Short sleeves are ok, but make sure they're long to reach around your chest and overlap in the back. Also, try and find a shirt that has darts in the middle of the back.
