autumn flower pins I was itching to make some cute flower pins for autumn. I know you’ve probably seen these all over blogland and they are super easy to make. I finished all of these in about an hour and a half, but that was making lots of mistakes along the way too, and digging for fabric scraps. This one is just taking a strip of fabric, twisting, and rolling into a circle, hot glue gunning along the way, and then adding a little bling to the middle. (an old earring I had) Anthro Knock Off Vintage Lace Bracelet The prettiness from Monday and yesterday continues today with a little anthro-inspired bracelet tutorial. In a word, lovely. The lace-and-pearls embroidered on vintage lace is just loveliness. 101 Handmade Holiday Tutorials Decorating for Christmas is always a blast! I’ve gathered a few…well, maybe more than a few holiday tutorials for you to create a festive handmade holiday. I love handmade decorations! There seems to always be some new and creative idea to add to my list each year.

Fishtail Braided Anchor Bracelet I have been obsessed with stripes lately, mainly blues or reds against white. Such a classic combination! When I found this anchor at my local jewelry supply store, I knew that I wanted to create a DIY inspired by it and by my love for classic stripes. I mixed a nautical inspired fishtail braid with the anchor for this bracelet DIY. Hope you enjoy!

Nail Art Alert: How to Get a Real Feather Manicure at Home (So Pretty!): Girls in the Beauty Department I bought these feathers a few weeks ago and I knew they'd make a gorgeous mani. Here's how to recreate the look. It'll cost you waaaay less than what you'd pay in the salon! You will need: A base color. I chose Essie's Glamour Purse. Two top coats. Sewing with lace : It's a Stitch Up Posted by Suzie on Tuesday, 7 September 2010 at 23:00 Seaming lace is just one of the new techniques I’ve had to pick up for Zoe’s wedding dress. The effect of the all-over lace is stunning, but sewing it is not high on my list of experiences I would like to repeat. While every other aspect of the dress as well as I could ever have hoped, making the lace over-skirt nearly drove me to insanity. A floating lace layer can’t be seamed like other fabrics because a normal seam would look unsightly through the fabric as the raw edges would be visible.

DIY Chanel Inspired Pearl Bracelet Today we’re going to knock out a some gorgeous DIY Chanel for a fraction of the price! Apparently I have expensive taste. Always have and probably always will. You know how when you’re flipping through your newest fashion mag and you see this thing, be it a purse, belt, pair of earrings, whatever that are to die for and rather than a price, there is an 800 number with “price upon request”.

DIY {doily canvas bag} & Thankfully everyone seems to be making a switch from plastic to lasting when it comes to shopping bags, so here’s another fun little tutorial on customizing one to make it oh so cute. You might notice a lot of doilies in my recent diy projects. Since I was getting so many ready for A Christmas Gathering I used a lot of the same materials…monograms seems to be pretty popular now too.

Shark Purse D.I.Y. Hi friends! Today my friend Kara of I Just Might Expolode is here to share a super cute project! Enjoy... My sister is obsessed with sharks and the JAWS. DIY Marbled Glassware When graphic designer and artist Joanna Bean Martin shared with us her technique for marbling the bottoms of glassware with nail polish, we couldn’t wait to try it ourselves. Who knew it would be such an easy way to add color and pattern to your next tablescape or party? Remember, the brighter and bolder colors you use, the more the glasses will radiate and glow. Have fun! You’ll need:flat bottomed glasswarevariety of colorful nail polishclear nail polisha disposable plastic containernail polish removerpainters tapetoothpicks Mask off the bottom of the glass with painters tape. diy fashion and lifestyle blogger, DIY: Pokémon All Around~~ When I moved to LA I... When I moved to LA I mistakenly thought I wouldn’t need any of my winter clothes until I went back to Chicago over the holidays to get them. But I was wrong about how quickly I’d adapt to the weather here and now get cold just the same as everyone else. :p It also gets pretty chilly in the Knickerocker sewing room, so DIY-ing a bunch of new sweatshirts has been at the top of my list. I thrifted this Pokemon bedsheet at least a year ago (actually, I just checked and it was in May 2012 haha~) and have been waiting for the perfect project to use it on. I’m not really a fan of white in my clothing, so I struggled for a long while until I realized I could cut the Pokemon out and applique them to something - and so this sweatshirt was born! And here’s a photo of my photographer in it!

DIY: Neon/Neutral Triple Cluster Pearl Bracelet Being a DIY kinda girl, it's a bit surprising that I haven't really dabbled in jewery making before. (*Gasp*,*shock*, *horror*... I know... lol!) I figured it was about time for that to change. Luckily, my sister, Rene (who I first introduced to you in this post), is a jewelry making pro and was able to help me out with the design and creation of these bauble beauties. Wanna make your own? Christine Chitnis: Pretty Pots This might be my favorite craft so far, and I got the idea after seeing one too many beautifully patterned pots that were just out of my price range! Nothing a little Mod Podge and pretty fabric can’t fix! The total cost of this project was about $3 a pot.
