Offbeat Bride | Mini top hat tutorial I thought I'd just document how I made the hats, then with the benefit of my experience you can venture forth and give it a go yourself, knowing I had no idea what I was doing but still managed to do it good enough regardless! Things I used: Construction Paper (though any paper will do, this is just thicker so a bit easier) CompassPencil/pen Tape Patience Spray Adhesive Fabric for hats (I used satin for the white one, and an acetate lining for the coloured ones) Scalpel / Utility Knife / whatever you want to call it Scissors Hot Glue and Hot Glue gun Box board/strawboard/thick cardboard, whatever you want to call it. The groundwork: First up, I made a basic pattern out of paper and tape to work from. To do this, I started with the base of the hat. Then cutting along the line just drawn, it will leave the shape of the crown/barrel of the hat! Making the hat: Using the pattern/template made from paper, trace out the pattern on card. Iron the fabric to make sure there are no unwanted creases.

Make Fabric Flowers Let’s just jump right into making this flower… Start with a piece of fabric 3 inches wide by 24 inches long. Twist it really tight. Fold it in half and it will twist together on its own. Hot glue the unfolded end under to create the center of the flower. The real deal: It cost less than $0.30 to make one flower. Are you addicted to making fabric flowers yet? Go and be pretty,

For detailed instructions, watch my video tutorial here: I tried to address all the questions you guys have asked about circle skirts over the years: how to hem a circle skirt, how to avoid hemming (heh), how to determine how much fabric you need, what to do if your fabric isn’t wide enough to cut the skirt in one piece, and so on.

Melly Sews: Pickup Skirt Tutorial Hello there! If you are new here, you might want to subscribe via email so you don't miss a post. Today I’m going to share my pickup skirt tutorial I have been obsessed with pickup skirts lately. From the Mountain Laurel Dress to the skirt with the His & Hers Henleys to the Fairytale Seersucker Dress, to pins from my Women’s Clothing Fashion Inspiration board on Pinterest, I’m all about the pickup skirt. My apologies that you’re going to see photos from both the His & Hers Henley Skirt and the Mountain Laurel dress. First, you need both your skirt and your lining. I know the lining looks kind of like a straight skirt in the pic above, but it was actually flared. Next, sew a gathering stitch around the bottom of the skirt. Sew around the bottom. For a poufier skirt, like the Henley Skirt, add some netting between the layers. Now gather the top edge of the skirt to match the top edge of the lining. If this is part of a dress, tie to sew the skirt to the dress.

pintuck practice I am making a blessing dress for baby Ruby (which may or may not actually be her name. We started calling her that a while ago, and I think it will stick, but don't hold me to it). Normally when I start a new project, I just wing it, but a blessing dress is special. It should have french seams and pretty details and not look like mom made it all willy nilly. I decided this was going to require some research and practice. Step one, the research (borrowed from my mother-in-law): There is a newer version available, but I am digging the retro 1979 copy. Step two, the practice (diamond pintucks): I used this great Riley Blake print to guide my pintucks, no marking required (love that). Diamond pintucks are a lot easier than they look.

Craft « Things I Fell In Love With Today Renegade Craft // Chicago Day 1 · Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012 Did you ever go to a place with zero expectations, having really done no research and then find yourself completely head over heels obsessively in love with that place once you arrived? That was my experience of Chicago. I only fit ‘The Windy City’ into my travel plans because it so happened that The Renegade Craft Fair was going to be on while I would be in that (very) general area of the U.S. So. many. crafts! I adored the colours here. Vintage, vintage, everywhere! Some of the pretty surroundings in the Wicker Park area. The prettiest dressing room // Outfit Details…Dress: Jack Wills // Hat: Vintage The best burger ever? I traveled to Chicago completely alone and wasn’t sure if I was going to love or hate that fact. I designated my first day there to Renegade and arrived early to really soak it all up.
