DIY Ideas & Links

1:00:00 PM

I love to browse about DIY things but I never have the time (or the courage) to do most of them. Well, I once tried to acid-washed my jeans (and failed) and several days ago I tried to do another DIY which is "how to make shredded jeans" (but I didn't finished it because I didn't realize that it would took a long time and I got tired and bored ^o^).
But nevertheless, I keep on browsing for some useful and interesting DIY things with a plan to try it on later. And I found some genius crafty ladies who has done amazing DIY projects which I silently envy, and here I'm gonna show you a couple of my favorite DIY things that I think should worth the try (although I don't know if I have the skills to make these, oh how I wish I could sew, I mean really sew....I could only do a simple hand-stitch to fix a hole in my clothing).
Since I'm a fair person then of course I have to proudly credit all of these lovely creative ladies who make this DIY, so in this blog I'm just gonna put a brief summary of their DIY here and put a link back to their site so you can directly click the link for further detailed instructions:

DIY #1 : How to make a J.Crew Corsage inspired Tee:

First, you need two t-shirts and make these 3 circles from one of the tee.

These circles would make the flower shapes (by pinching and sewing them at the bottom center). Then all you have to do is just stitch the flower shapes on to the neckline of the other tee, like this:

You can also sew the flower shape to other part of the shirts, be creative! Or, you can also sew them on to your skirts!

DIY #2 : How to make Carrie Bradshaw (Christian Louboutin) inspired shoes :

First you only need an ankle strap shoes like this one:

And then you add this wide grosgrain ribbon (or you could also use other fabrics such as suede or tulle!) by folding and then sewing it to both straps like in the picture below. This would be the base.

Then you make some loops out of the same fabric and sewn onto the base, and voila:

You have your Carrie Bradshaw shoes. This superb DIY is also a courtesy of Jennifer Juniper of Hope Studios. Isn't she a genius or what?! I love her ideas! Click here for this DIY tutorial!

DIY #3 : How to make a shredded legging :

Now I know this kind of legging is probably "so last season" to some of you but I decided to post it anyway because I thought this DIY project is the easiest project I've ever seen. I saw this tutorial a long time ago but then I forgot all about it until now. I think I'm gonna make this since I love wearing leggings, it's comfy and with this shredded legging I could experience with different styles (punk/rock/gothic/artsy maybe??).
Anyway, this DIY pic is courtesy of Caroline Robianto of Sour Cherry. She's Indonesian, like me. You could go here for more detailed instructions of this simple DIY project.

If you love these DIY project ideas then I'll try to post routinely once a week. I'll hunt down any easy DIY projects then I'll post and share the links here. And tell me if you decide to try these DIY projects, I'd like to know how it comes out ^^
