My Kanzashi Hairpin My Kanzashi Hairpin Since I first saw Kanzashi on CraftyPod, I've admired them. They are gorgeous! beltmaking 101 Finally–the long-awaited beltmaking tutorial! way I make my fabric-covered belts has been learned from a mix of trial-and-error and vintage manuals. The supplies are simple, and making a simple pass-through belt is quite easy. I have, however, included instructions for how to add a pronged buckle to a belt and add eyelets. I hope you enjoy, and as usual feel free to ask any questions in the comments! Bromeliad: 20 DIYs with leather - Fashion and home decor DIY and inspiration I've updated my popular "20 DIYs with leather" to now be "30 DIYS with leather" and fixed all the missing embedded Pinterest images. Leather adds a certain elan to handmade goodies, and the interwebs are full of fabulous projects. The above Jil Sanders leather lunch bag is the real deal but you can find a DIY for it at Chictopia. This white leather flower bracelet from Between the Lines was the result of an accident. From EvaForEva, a leather clutch from old clothes that is lined with fabric. White leather net bag from Love Aesthetics and the famous Swell Mayde leather phone case via Design Sponge.

Flat pattern hair band This is probably one of the simplest sewing projects ever, but I made a few miserable prototypes before arriving at it. So to spare you the same frustration: a tutorial! Most hairband patterns I've found involve sewing two pieces of fabric together.

Stepping Thru Crazy: Men's Button-Up Refashion... into Ladies Tank! A few years ago, when the hubby and I lived in Florida (this was pre-kids, so make that 5-ish years...) I bought him a button-up shirt for his work. The deal was that he had to wear blue or white button-ups, so I thought, "Why not both at the same time?" Easy DIY Lace Sleeve Tank Top Fashion Years ago I used to make little lingerie/pajama sets of tanks and underwear with ruffles – you can see some of them here, along with a DIY for the ruffle boy shorts & bikinis… but I always used ribbed wife-beater style tank tops rather than spaghetti strap tanks. I’ve had this pretty vintage lace trim I found at a thrift shop lying around for ages. I pulled the $3 tag off just the other day as I was prepping for this DIY.
