I Spy DIY. Chic Steals Blogger of the Month-October! Hi everyone! I’m Carly from Chic Steals , and I’ve been a huge fan of M&J Trimming for such a long time. I make it a point to always stop in the store and meander through whenever I’m in New York City. It’s like a glittering treasure trove for me, stocked full of beads, baubles, trims, rhinestones, and appliqués – so much so that I’m never able to leave with empty hands. It’s amazing how easily you can update a piece of clothing or an accessory with said beads, baubles, and appliqués…and how incredibly high-fashion projects can look when you’ve added a bit of frivolous sparkle to them.

Hair Extension Feathers. Tutorial : DIY Nautical Headband. How to make a Nautical HeadbandMaterials:-4 yds of rope or ribbon cut into 4 equal strands-1/2 yd 1 inch twill-hair band-sewing needle-thread The following pictures show you step by step how to make the sailor's knot with your first two strands of rope.
Pay careful attention to which strand is on top or under the other. For more help click here. Now take your third and fourth strands of rope and snake them side by side into the knot by the first two strands. Slowly pull the knot tighter, keeping it even and the knot flat. Here is a closeup of how the knot should look now. Take your needle and thread and about 1 inch from the knot sew together the four strands of rope to keep them flat on the back.. Repeat on the other side. Here is the front. Trim your ropes so that all of the ends are even and the whole thing is about 19 inches long with the knot at about 7 1/2 inches (so that it is on the side of your head).
Lace Zipper Tutorial... Want a quick update to an old shirt?
How about an exposed lace zipper?!! With some left over lace scraps, an invisible zipper, and a zipper foot for your sewing machine, this is an easy and quick refashion that turns any shirt into something just a tad more feminine and lovely. You can put it on the back of your shirt, the front in a diagonal for a more modern and fresh look, or twist it up even further and have it come from the bottom hem!

I am so excited to be guest posting here today. DIY Color Block Moccasins. 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. DIY Shibori. Today marks HonestlyWTF’s four year anniversary.
Four years! To celebrate, we’re revisiting the very first tutorial we ever featured on the site: shibori tie dye. Lauren and I first discovered shibori after discovering an old photo on the web. The idea of recreating an ancient Japanese dyeing technique inspired us to spend an entire weekend experimenting with our favorite deep blue, indigo. After dyeing just about every white article of clothing in sight, our blue stained fingers excitedly uploaded the tutorial – we couldn’t wait to share it with our 30 readers.

It was love at first sight when we laid eyes on the amazing oversized, billowy, ruffled frills adorning the Fall 2010 runway looks at Fendi. We immediately wanted one and just couldn’t imagine having to wait another several months to actually see these frills materialize. With some research, persistence, and umpteen botched attempts, we finally figured out a fail-proof pattern. Heels/Wedges.
