Ultimate Wedding Planning Resource Connecting Brides and Wedding Pros
We love pumps (So sexy!). We love sparkly things (Ooh shiny!). So it shouldn’t be a surprise that we would love sparkly pumps! Glitter pumps are all the rage right now in the fashion world and we couldn’t be happier. We’ve been drooling over these gold glitter Christian Louboutin pumps for a while now… But unfortunately they aren’t in our budget- Nor will they ever be in our budget for that matter! You’ll Need: - Extra Fine Glitter - Mod-Podge (I used Gloss-Lustre) - Pair of Shoes – Sand Paper (or a nail file) - Bowl - Paintbrush (I didn’t use the paintbrush above, it was too big) - And something to cover your work surface (I used tinfoil) You should probably sand the shoes just to make sure that the glitter and glue can adhere to the shoes as best as it can. Next I sorted through the glitter I bought to decide which colors I wanted to use. Just mix the glitter together in whatever combination you’d like. Once you’ve mixed in the Mod-Podge just start brushing it on the shoes. And VOILA! Related:  DIY Clothes

Birds of a Feather: Feather Stencil | therobotsattack Recently I’ve been admiring feathers. They’re so delicate and I enjoy its silhouette. I wanted to incorporate a feather design into some craft projects. I looked at a few pictures of feathers and drew an outline that I was satisfied with. I then copied that design on to some sticker paper I’ve had left over from another project, and cut it out. I opted to do a little ink splattering to give it a bit of an edgy look. For the plate, I used porcelain paint. Like this: Like Loading...

26 Clever And Inexpensive Crafting Hacks Fashion DIY: Furry Boots on Cambio It's winter here at Fashion DIY, so we are showing you how to make the hottest winter trend - furry boots! From Juicy Couture to Fendi, this must-have look is all over the runways and the best part of this trend is you can get two stylish looks out of one pair of shoes. You won't need much, just: a pair of ankle booties, a half a yard of faux fur, a hot glue gun, scissors, and a ruler. First, put the booties to the side to make sure they don't get in the way. Then, take the fur and cut two equal pieces - one for each shoe (make sure to measure around your ankle so that it fits). Next, take your two socks, and cut off the toe end of them. Take one piece of fur and one sock, and hot glue down one end of the fur onto the sock. Once the hot glue has dried, cut off the remainder of most of the sock below the fur (if there is enough to trim off). Now slip your foot into the sock and pull it up to your ankles. Voila!

21 Incredibly Important Diagrams To Help You Get Through Life » DIY: Tank Dress with Pockets! academichic At long last, I present a tutorial for the tank dress I made a few weeks ago before the end of the semester blindsided me. I’ve been seeing these tank+patterned skirt all over the place lately, but frequently they were too short or too short-waisted for my particular proportions. After some googling, and studying the really excellent skirt tutorial and t-shirt dress tutorial at Ruffles and Stuff and the skirt with pockets tutorial at Freshly Picked, I decided that even my fairly rudimentary sewing skills could handle this project. And since I celebrated my height yesterday for Dress Your Best week, it seems appropriate to post a sewing project prompted by my need for a longer-than-in-stores dress.

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. Supplies: 1″ wide stiff belting (available at JoAnns), 1/4 yard fabric at least 45″ wide, buckle for 1″ belt (see sources at the end), pattern paper, thread, scissors, ruler, pins. Begin by measuring your waist and adding 6″ to 8″ inches to the length (I tend to err on the side of more, especially for a belt using a pronged buckle). Cut the belting the length of your waist plus the extra. Using the paper pattern, cut one layer of your fabric. Fold the fabric around the belting, wrong sides out. Gently work the seam to the center of the belting width, and press seam open. On the shaped end of the belting, stitch along the point being sure to backstitch at the beginning and end. Remove belting and turn the fabric right side out.
