No Sew Duct Tape Pouch

No Sew Duct Tape Pouch
Take your duct tape skills to the next level with this great zippered pouch. The interior is water-proof, making this bag great for carrying, pens, make-up, whatever you can imagine. Choose an outer fabric that suits your personality and function. I knew when I saw this adorable Hello Kitty satin in my favorite color, I just couldn't resist. In fact, I blame the fabric itself for the inception of this entire project. Sometimes it just calls to you! This project is similar to another one you'll find in the awesome book Simply Sublime Bags by Jodi Kahn

Galaxy on Clothes I love galaxy inspired prints and jackets but did not like the price tag($75 for leggings? I could just buy an entirely new wardrobe at a thrift store and still have enough money for lunch!) and thought it would be awesome to make an Instructable to make your own "galaxy" clothing article! This is a great gift for those who are on a tight budget this Christmas or for those who want to make their plain old black sweatshirt, t-shirts, jeans, whatevers into space-tacular stylish wear! It even glows in the dark and is great for parties under black lights hahaha If you have plain old boring black clothes laying around that you don't wear anymore...

vintage book travel-tech organizer As you may have figured out from my My Life Scoop posts, I’m a bit of a nut for tech accessories, especially pocket-sized ones. I can’t get over how awesomely small our entertainment devices are becoming; it makes traveling with them so much easier. But one issue I keep running into is how to neatly organize everything, especially the power cords and connector cables that accompany my favorite devices. Rather than spend another plane trip rummaging through my catch-all carry-on bag searching for my headphones, bumping my head on the seat in front of me every time, I decided to make a small tech-accessory organizer using elastic ribbon and an old vintage book cover. This project can be sized up or down and customized in many different ways — the best approach is to gather all the tiny tech things you travel with and see how much there is.

Seed Paper Tutorial I first heard of seed paper–or hand made paper that has real flower seeds embedded in the pulp itself and is actually plantable–about a year ago while browsing through a stationary catalog. It was the coolest idea I’d ever seen–and so incredibly spring-y! Well, who knew that you could make this funky stuff all by yourself? The Wordclock Grew Up! Well, It had to happen. I first published my WordClock project in September 2009. It was a Microchip PIC based clock, using a PIC16F877A microprocessor. In the last year and a half, I have been constantly improving it, and have adapted it to the Arduino, and even designed an updated controller board for it. Wallet-to-Tote On the Go ~ Tutorial Lorraine from ikat bag is a favorite around here… She has tons of fun tutorials on her blog and she’s joined us before with this wonderful Back to School Pencil Case tutorial. Today Lorraine shares a tutorial for a new summer essential, the On the Go Wallet-to-Tote! Construction includes three main parts: Assembling the Wallet, Assembling the Outer Bag and Making the Lining.

Stenciling with Bleach So here’s tutorial #3 in the bleach series! It’s an easy way to customize a shirt, fabric by removing color instead of adding it. For my first project I used a $1 doily as my stencil. I placed it on a navy t-shirt and sprayed a mist of bleach over top:

How to make a fabric rose It's the last stiffened fabric project and then I'm moving on! I wanted to try an oversized, realistic fabric rose just for fun. Make a template with six petals. I traced around a dinner plate and a small bowl on the back of some ugly wrapping paper. (Tip: if the paper is too curly, iron it flat and your life will be better.) I've included my feet so you can admire my cute socks.

Day 3: Sparkle Headbands - a diy headband tutorial Theses headbands I want to keep for myself. Really, I can’t decide which I like better the beads or the rhinestones. I know Allie won’t want to take them off. Who doesn’t love the idea of diamonds glittering in your hair? The technique for the floss wrapping I used in the wands in my costume course on Craftsy. But, I just adore the added bling.

DIY Lace Earrings - HonestlyWTF Dolce & Gabbana‘s Spring ’11 collection undoubtedly furthered our already fanatical obsession with lace. Honestly, how dreamy is the collection?! We thought we’d make good use of some vintage lace trim we had laying around and turn them into earrings similar to the ones we saw on the runway. you knew i was going to make one. they are all over pinterest....(i still am not signed up for pinterest because i don't have time for one more thing but browsing is fun!) so we made one. Scarf 2 Vest This genius idea {which I am in no way claiming to have originated but merely stumbled upon a youtube video of it a few months ago} is yet another way to make your scarves work for you. Light scarves, as we all know, are the perfect transitional accessory from Summer to Fall. They warm us up just enough while adding a little pop to our ensemble. This is a brilliant way to add a light layer on a chilly day without spending a dime or even pulling out a needle and thread.

Book strap tutorial Ladies and gentlemen, I'm delighted to share a guest tutorial today from Lorraine (LiEr) Teigland of Ikat Bag. She's a former physics teacher, which speaks volumes about the smart projects her creative brain concocts. (Her pig and chicken patterns kill me.) Today's project is a book strap. I must admit I sheepishly had to ask Lorraine how to use this fancy item: does one grab the long end of the strap and use it like a handle, so the book stack dangles from it like a dog on a leash?

I Made My Own Dress Form! Here she is! My paper-tape double! Woohoo! Decorchick! Changing her world, one project at a time Well Christmas is literally just around the corner, I can’t believe it! And if you are planning on making an advent calendar this year, it’s already time to start thinking about it since they need to be displayed by December 1. :) So I’ve compiled a list of my 10 favorite DIY advent calendars floating around the net, and hopefully you might get inspired to make one of them. :) All of these include tutorials as well, so enjoy! 1.
