A week or two ago, my little sister asked me if I could dye her shoes black because she didn’t like the blue and red plaid. I finally decided to do it and share the process with you guys. This is my first time dying shoes, so I might have done some things strangely, so if there’s any way I can improve, please let me know!
What I used: shoes, dye, a container, gloves, cotton balls(not pictured)
I’m so sorry for my disappearance everyone! I had to run away to work on school work and whatnot.. finals week called for many projects, papers, etc. but now I’m all done! Yay! My older sister is done with college too.. cept not like me.. I still have a year to go. No, she’s done completely! We’re heading to her school to watch her graduation today, and I had a skirt I was going to wear but when I was looking at it last night and decided that it looked too much like a work skirt.. so I decided to make something to wear. I combed through my fabric stash and picked these:
I’ve had these for so long!
So I got to sewing and cutting. I had just vacuumed my floor and now I have to do it again because of all the seeds I had to cut off of this fabric so it wouldn’t break the needle in my machine..
Here’s the finished product!
Don’t pay attention to the green shirt, it’s just what I was wearing at the time haha.
Kinda blurry, sorry
Again, apologies for the lack of posting.. I have a lot of things lined up, I just never had time. I do now though!
Sorry for the lack of posts recently, school is wrapping up so I’ve been busy with random papers, projects, etc. Hopefully soon I can start to post on a regular schedule rather than so randomly. Anyway, I finally had a little time to craft, so I decided to make paper. Exciting!
When I was a freshman in college, my mom bought me a table to somehow fit into my tiny dorm room.. It was ugly and white, and my roommate and I knew we had to do something to make it fit into our room better. See, we were both artsy people so a plain white table in our colorful room would not do. My roomate brought a carpet one day and after situating the table on top of it, we knew what we had to do to the table.
Here’s a blurry picture of what we did:
(Thats my messy ass side of the room) We used electrical tape around the side of the table so it’d be black instead of that weird brown.. it made it look more finished.
Well actually, not galore.. because there’s only two, but you get the idea! When two of my friends told me they were pregnant, after the initial shock wore away, I got excited to make them baby quilts. I was hoping that at least one of them would have a girl, so I could make a cute girls quilt, but I had no such luck for they were both having boys. That didn’t stop me from making two cute quilts though!
Sorry I haven’t posted in a long time! It’s been a busy few days. It’s also been a while since I’ve said I was going to do the makeup bag tutorial, so I put it together today! For all of you who don’t remember, or who haven’t seen, my first post was about a travel set that included a makeup bag. I kinda had to wing it on the bag because I knew the style I wanted it to be, but I couldn’t remember where I had seen a tutorial for it a long time ago. I promised I’d make a tutorial for the makeup bag according to how I made it, so here it is!
About 10 months ago I made a cassette tape wallet after I was inspired by some that I saw online. They were on sale for $43 and the first thought in my mind was, “I can make that for less!” So that’s what I did. Here’s some pictures of it when it was freshly made.
Summer is approaching, so I thought I’d share a project I did a while back which would be used at the pool or beach. Basically it’s a beach bag, but it’s also a towel! It folds up into itself (much like a quillow) but it has handles that make it into a bag. You can throw in your sunscreen, flip flops and other goodies you’d bring to the beach and/or pool.
