I love this crystal trim–its inexpensive and very twinkly. From the moment I saw it, I wanted to make this wrap bracelet. I started by trying to tack it to ribbon.

I really should be sleeping but I've been meaning to post a clearer photo of this bag ages ago, so now here it is with a tutorial on how to sew one! This is a fun piece as you can use your favourite cloth prints to create your own bag, I've picked out this fairy-tale-goth-like cloths in 2 different colours and a Japanese flowers print for my bag For this simple shoulder bag, you will need: 2 Patterned cloths - 1m each [this is an estimate with extras in case of mistakes]
Welcome to my first tutorial – I’m starting off with a wallet – which is a bit tricky and not first post material but I just finished it today and couldn’t wait. I will post smaller tutorials on inserting a magnetic snap closure and other techniques used in this tutorial. Also I have a tendency to type like I speak i.e. really really fast with bad grammar – so if my instructions are confusing at anytime please feel free to ask me a questions =D What you'll need:
Despite the fact that I had lived in the Phoenix area all my life growing up, I decided that it would be a good idea to go to college in Flagstaff Arizona. It was there that I discovered that I have a fairly low tolerance for snow, ice and wind. And by fairly low I mean, I’m a big baby and complain a lot when subjected to temperatures below 40 degrees. We won’t even discuss the ear infections I got every year from wind.
Pleated Purse Pattern I received such a great response to my pleated spring bag and so many requests for a pattern, I thought I'd give it a try. I tried to keep it a little shorter this time, so please let me know how you like it!
I am so proud to say – after about 4 years (at least!) where I didn’t do any sewing, I just went back to my roots and started sewing again! The things I love to make at most at the moment are bags. Sewing your own bag is pretty cool and practical, because by making it on your own, YOU can decide how it will look like, where pockets are placed and which fabric should be used for outside and for the lining. After I tried some different sewing patterns (most of them turned out to be either difficult to realize or not satisfying when they were finished).
This zip-itself coin purse is truly an amazing and creative handmade design… zip-up to a tetrahedron shaped coin purse, unzip to a long ribbon. This zip-itself coin purse is made from 2 simple materials that you can get from the shop easily – ribbon and zipper. Get the tutorial on how to sew zip-itself coin purse with lining after this jump. I accidentally saw this zip-itself coin purse when I did a search for the tetrahedron coin purse and I love the idea. I knew I am going to scratch my head and drill into the detail of the design and make it one day….
For this goal, I defined it by saying I will make a homemade gift for each member of our immediate family at least once during the year, either for birthdays or Christmas. Yesterday was my cute sister-in-law's birthday. I decided to make her this little coin purse/mini wallet. I had a lot of fun with this little project and will probably make more. I especially liked picking coordinating fabrics and am in love with the ones I ended up picking.
I made a tote yesterday, according to Holly's tutorial (of the bijou lovely designs blog). Here's her tote, in a perfectly photographed photo that I envy: Here is my tote, which I love, but which deserves much better photos... better lighting and focus, I know!! I'm happy with the result! And it is all made up of fabric from my stash! Now I can take it with me when I go shopping, so I don't need any plastic bags from the stores :-D
Yesterday, after completing the puffy applique pillow cover for my boyfriend, I made a quick little tote bag. What do you think...? It is based on this tutorial by verypurpleperson :
We know, we’ve mentioned our love of neon and old school, throwback jewelry in some recent posts, and today we’re at it again. If you didn’t think neon and geodes went together, we strongly urge you to reconsider! A Merry Mishap happens to make fabulous geometric shaped jewelry in fun neon colors. The look is fresh and modern but also a throwback to our childhood days of making clay beads.
By Kate on October 25, 2011 H ello there! I finally got around to posting after a hectic few weeks. I’ve been working on a big project which is all done and dusted now so I will be making more frequent updates between now and Christmas…phew! I sincerely wish there were more hours in the day!

Es sencilla de realizar, combina cuero e hilos de colores, yo he usado hilo de bordar cuyos colores son luminosos y el colorido es muy variado.

Están hechas con tres cordones de cuero de 2 mm entre los que se entrelaza hilo de bordar de colores. Son muy sencillas de realizar, el material que necesitas es:
If you have been reading this blog then you know that I have a slight obsession with bracelets. It is not my fault really, its just that there are so many amazing tutorials out there that I can't help but post them here! I have been seeing these bracelets around in various shops for a while now and was aware that they are the product of a very generous tutorial so I never liked the price tag on them. If you don't either then get crafting. Grab some twine or thick thread, some hex nuts and lets go because the fabulous HonestlyWTF people made this fantastic tutorial for all of us to use and enjoy.
