Lace for Days Skirt So, remember how 2 weeks ago I told you I had a new skirt tutorial? I am just now getting around to creating it, so sorry about the wait! I have had the lace for this skirt for about a year now (seriously), and have finally gotten around to making it. This idea has been in my head for a long time and it's nice to see if finally completed!(you can tell how long it took me to do, because my nail polish changes throughout the tutorial) I found this lace at Joanns and fell instantly in love.

Embellish Knit Month: Day 6 A lot of you expressed questions about resizing sweaters. I mentioned briefly how to do that on day one but I didn't go too in depth. So today and tomorrow I'll be redoing sweaters by first showing you how to turn them into cardigans today and then tomorrow showing you how to resizing body and sleeves, nothing else. Today I found this Wet Seal sweater for $1.50 at Community Aid. I liked the stripes and the colors used. Refashioned Crochet Embellished Tank Refashioned Crochet Embellished Tank By Dolin O’Shea Here is a quick and easy project that uses a couple of basic T-shirts and transforms them into a stylish summer tank top. Notes: Crochet gauge: 7 double crochet stitches in 4"

How to make a draped t-shirt This cowl neck top is quite easy to make. It has only four seams and you can create the pattern yourself. The cowl neck comes from making the neckline of the shirt wider at the front than the back – this extra fabric hangs down creating the drapey neckline. The folds in the sleeves come from extra fabric as well, which is added by angling the shoulder seam upward. You will need: Measuring tape ⅔ yard stretchy fabric (I used a cotton/lycra jersey) Matching thread Sewing machine Chalk (or pencil and large paper to make a pattern) Pins (optional) The first step in making this top is to measure yourself.

MADE: TUTORIAL: the Circle Skirt I used to think that a gathered skirt was the easiest skirt to sew. But I may have changed my tune. A circle skirt is possibly even easier! Tooth Fairy Bags We thought we'd try to make the whole Tooth Fairy ritual a little more fun by making a colorful bag complete with a special tooth-shaped pocket for the baby tooth. The Tooth Fairy can take away the tooth and leave the loot in the bag. This is a really quick project. So quick that you might want to whip up a few in different colors for the different kids (and teeth!) in your life.

As requested: DIY J.Crew Tissue Flutter Tank tutorial A while back, I posted about how many great J.Crew tanks and tees there are for us to be inspired by and perhaps copy. It's overwhelming! But luckily, one of you added a special request for the Tissue Flutter Tank, which really helped me narrow down which one I was going to knock off next! Here's the inspiration: So, how to make this lovely thing? I'm seeing wide strips of bias-cut lightweight knit with little tiny pleats that make them look like ruffles, cascading down the left front of the tank.

TIPPED OUT - all photos: Kristin Ess + post designed by kristin ess Lots of emails this week asking for a tutorial on Lauren’s temporary bright colors. Here I’ve replicated the process for you in 7 steps on an extension. While I never recommend bleaching out the ends of your hair at home, if you want to do the fun colors yourself, maybe get the tips bleached out by a pro + then play with the temporary colors on your own. The best things about this color– you’re able to hide it in a bun for work if you need to, AND you’re only doing a couple of inches on the bottom so it won’t kill you to cut it off if you get over it quickly.

A tablecloth reborn This shirt began life as a beautiful linen tablecloth belonging to my mother’s stepmother’s mother (my step-great-grandmother?). After many years the stains and tears were too large and numerous to be covered with a strategically placed platter, but it was too special to just throw out. So it became this top. Tie Dye T-Shirts with Sharpie Markers! It was Red Ribbon week at my daughter's school this week and their first dress up day was tie dye t-shirts and wouldn't you know she didn't have anything tie dye in her closet. So we decided to do a little art project together and make something with what we had on hand. I have seen several different examples and directions for this on the internet so we took what we found from various searches and modified it just a little bit. Here's what you'll need and the steps we followed: Pre-washed white or light colored t-shirt (cotton takes color great)Rubbing Alcohol (Note: mine was 91%.

I agree with the last two comments. Stop wasting our time! by lollyshopgirl Aug 18

I hate this pearl! HATE it!!!! by karlynknudson2 Oct 7

why would you pearl this but then deny permission to enter the blog. It seems a little self destructive if your trying to expose your blog. If your not then why waste anybody's time,I know I could have probly gone through 5 pearls by now but I'm wasting even more time writing this comment because this kind of "STUFF" just irritates the heck out of me.All i'm saying is :If you dont want any one to see it then don't put the f'n thing on here. by karlynknudson2 Oct 7
