After making the skirts for the dance show this weekend , I needed to make some hair pieces! I was inspired by a DIY bow project on Casey's Elegant Musings (another wonderful seamstress who makes gorgeous vintage-inspired outfits and accessories), and decided to make my own from her instructions. This probably isn't a bow you would normally wear out and about, but it works great for a costume or for kids' hair. These skirts (at bottom of post) and bows are the reason why I've been slack on the DIY projects lately! :-) Supplies: Small amount of fabric Needle/thread Scissors/pins Sewing machine (but this could easily be done by hand) Barrette
** NO SEW VERSION CLICK HERE! ** **HIGH-BACK VERSION/STREET WEAR- CLICK HERE** **HALTER VERSION- CLICK HERE** Probably my favorite 'la vie' project... ever. I was browsing through a swimwear catalog and saw an adorable beach cover up. I sooo wanted it, but obviously I wasn't spending $45 on it, plus, it was totally make-able.
And fiiiinally... the tutorial you've been waiting for. This is my first real sewing tutorial - which scares me a bit, because I've never actually taken a sewing class, so I don't know all the terminology. What I do know is that I've learned to sew lots of things by reading tutorials, so hopefully I can make this simple enough that even you beginners can feel confident making a bag. And yes, a bag with a zipper! It can be done, I promise.There are plenty of photos, so hopefully that will help.
I love statement pieces, especially accessories! I created this pretty bird fringe purse because I wanted something special to wear this Autumn. This pretty project only took me about two hours to create. I hope you enjoy it... This little birdie is my vintage inspiration.
How gorgeous are these ear warmers?? I love all the different styles you can make from one tute as well. When I spied these on Delia Creates I just had to beg Delia to share the DIY with you, and lucky us, she agreed! Take it away Delia: With autumn here and winter right around the corner, it is the perfect time to make these easy ear warmers! These are so fun and quick to make, you may want to make four…like I did!
I've been loving the wave of tshirt scarves and necklaces bouncing around on the interwebs and have wanted to make one of my own for a while now. After scavenging for the best of the best, I offer you a roundup of my favorite DIY scarves as well as my own. You know...
i have a tutorial that is forty thrillionty times easier and better than my previous ( ahem , first ever...give me some grace!) tutorial . it is accessible to infinitely more people (you dont have to have a baby, OR a dress to start out with). and it is really simple. there are only 4 lines of stitching total. oh, did i mention it's mega cute and chic also: 5 weeks ago i saw this scarf on pinterest. it was pinned by a VERY popular pinner that i follow under her DIY board. i knew i had to make one for myself. but when i followed this "DIY" link, it actually led to a german store where the scarf was 32 euros. no DIY tutorial = no thanks and bum out! LOVE these colors. must make a yellow and gray one for me. source
Here it is, folks! I’m sorry the photos are kinda blah. I’m thinking about painting my studio a lighter color to help with the darkness factor. I had to really brighten these up. I know I said to use a pencil in the instructions, but I used a thick marker so it would be easier to see for the photos.
