How To Tie Dye Your LEGS

How To Tie Dye Your LEGS
I am about to show you how to tie dye your legs... or leggs really. Yeah, they're just stockings, but the result is still the same. I now have 3 different crazy pairs of tights that each were made from old clothes and food coloring. I do know that this red color looks like I got a sunburn or was in a bad fire, so you can stop saying so. I first thought of tie dying tights when I learned that nylon could take acid dyes, the same type used to color wool. You will need: 1+ pack of Kool Aid in any color, mixing is fun. I tied up my nylons randomly into a big blob. Add your Kool Aid to a pot of water. I prepared a dye bath of water and Black Cherry Kool Aid. Add your tights to the dye, you can take them out when they have soaked up all the dye or when you are satisfied with the intensity of the color. Let them cool, and take off the string. You should see spots of undyed fabric under the string. You'll have something like this. Red dye only kind of looks like a terrible skin disease.

Page corner bookmark This project comes to you at the request of Twitterer @GCcapitalM. I used to believe that a person could never have too many books, or too many bookmarks. Then I moved into an apartment slightly larger than some people’s closets (and much smaller than many people’s garages) and all these beliefs got turned on their naïeve little heads. But what a person can always look for more of is really cool unique bookmarks. Placeholders special enough for the books that are special enough to remain in your culled-out-of-spacial-necessity collection. Page corner bookmarks are cute, practical and deeply under-represented in the world.* They’re easy to make, easy to customize, and will set you apart from all those same-same flat rectangular bookmarks. If you like this tutorial, here are a couple others that might be up your alley. For the monster-loving adults in the room, try some googly-eyed paper monster wine charms. What you’ll need: Putting it all together: 1) Follow steps 2 and 3 from above.

Homemade Hair Treatments - At Home DIY Hair Treatments - Womans Day - StumbleUpon Eggs, yogurt and honey are, at first glance, all components of a tasty breakfast—but they also happen to be hair treatment ingredients, and affordable, all-natural ones at that. And they're not the only ones. Did you know, for instance, that the oils in avocados more closely resemble our own skin's oils than any product in the beauty aisle does? Or that the mild acidity in lemon is an effective—and gentler—alternative to chemical-laden products? For All Hair Types "The [raw] egg is really the best of all worlds," says Janice Cox, author of Natural Beauty at Home. To Use: For normal hair, use the entire egg to condition hair; use egg whites only to treat oily hair; use egg yolks only to moisturize dry, brittle hair, Cox says. Photo by Shutterstock. For Dull Hair Styling products (as well as air pollution) can leave a film that both saps moisture and dulls shine—but dairy products like sour cream and plain yogurt can help reverse this damage. For Itchy Scalp For Limp or Fine Hair

Natural Beauty Remedies - DIY Beauty Want to banish undereye circles in the blink of an eye? Pass the parsley. It's rich in vitamin K, a nutrient that, when applied topically, reduces blood flow to the eye area—a key factor in the formation of circles, says Kansas City, Missouri—based dermatologist Audrey Kunin, MD, founder of DERMAdoctor. "Over time, the fatty layer of skin under your eyes thins out, which, in turn, makes underlying blood vessels more visible," she explains. "Their slightly bluish color is what creates the illusion of circles underneath the eyes."

With that in mind, here are 52 Free Dress Patterns, divided by style. Keep in mind the categories are not set in stone. Notes about the patterns are list­ed for some of the dress­es. Patterns from existing dresses require laying out an item of clothing onto fabric, marking it, and cutting out. No pattern needed usually means that the dress is made from a recycled shirt. Drafting instructions means that you will have to make your own pattern, but the designer included all the information needed.

How To Make An Easy and Cheap Shirt From Silk Scarves Wanna learn how to make a super cute and breezy summer top? What if I told you it only cost me about 3.50?

You need: 2 silk scarves matching in size and color. My studio was way too messy for any good pictures of the process, so I used photoshop. So, here is a representation of my two scarves. I got home and washed them on delicate, then hung them to dry. You then layer the scarves on top of each other, right sides facing in. Basically, sew where you see the dotted lines. (But probably a bit more even..) Leave a big enough space for your head, the shirt is meant to be a bit "boat necked." Also, make sure you leave enough room for your arms, so it's loose and breezy. The shirt will naturally fall over your shoulders like sleeves. The scarf should already be hemmed when you buy it, so... that's all there is! Here is a bit of warning,
