DIY : des bagues avec des boutons et de l’élastique Les petites filles raffolent des bijoux. Est-ce parce qu’elles nous regardent nous parer le matin ou lorsque l’on sort? Ceci dit, mon fils aime bien faire des colliers de perles avec celles de sa sœur… Quoi qu’il en soit, organisez un atelier bagues à la maison avec de l’élastique et des boutons. Si vous n’êtes pas su tout couturière et que vous n’avez ni l’un ni l’autre, suivez le lien pour trouver une autre idée pour fabriquer des bagues! Instructions Vous aurez besoin d’élastique pas trop large, de bouton, de fil et d’une aiguille. Commencez par couper l’élastique : pour déterminer la bonne longueur, faites le tour d’un doigt et laissez 1 cm de marge. Enfilez l’aiguille, faites un nœud et cousez les deux extrémités de l’élastique ensemble (en les superposant sur 1/2 cm) Puis cousez un premier bouton, en passant le fil à travers les trous des boutons, puis un second. Vous pouvez fabriquer une vraie collection!

Molson Canadian Shirt DIY: T-Shirt Flower Dress Technically this isn't a new DIY since this dress was one of the first things that I ever posted on this little blog when my Nikon and I were just getting to know each other, (;)) but I never put up the entire tutorial! In the beginning of my blog days, I used to post all of my tutorials over on Cut Out + Keep, one of my favorite crafting communities. (By the way, Cut Out + Keep just celebrated their 100,000th member! Holy cow that's a lot of crafters. This dress is special to me in many ways because it was my first big blog project, I wore it in a trashion show, and holy Moses it took me forever to make. I don't even want to know how much thread I used on this dress. Tutoriel - DIY : comment faire un débardeur loose oversize en un coup de ciseaux.

Adam Saaks Inspired Tank La jupe shirt | Coudre Like My Mom July 28, 2010 I’m so excited to post about this! When I met Dana, I fell in love with the skirt she was wearing. She made it herself (obviously) and she showed us how simply she’d shirred the waistband. The next day, during the mystery workshop at Whipstitch, we were encouraged to use thrifted tees. I’m devastatingly terrified of knits so I steered clear and made my (award winning) cotton fabric dress. I developed an idea in my head I thought just might be crazy enough to work. The Hubs thought I was a little crazy when I explained my idea to him. It’s the easiest thing in the world to do! The shirt skirt perfect for summertime. I wore the green and white one to Sofie’s birthday party. I had 2 women in Walmart stop me to tell me how comfy my skirt looked and when I told them how I made it, they demanded I call Rachael Ray immediately! The process is so easy. I do my shopping at Goodwill for 1 reason. So, get your super cheap thrifted shirt. Now, I break a rule of shirring. And that’s it!
