[Video tutorial] DIY Bleached Patterned Jeans

DIY Bleached Patterned Jeans
[Old Jeans transformation]
You probably have noticed that I already posted this DIY about a year ago in form of step by step picture guide. But for my latest collaboration with Etsy I was asked to turn this DIY into an entertaining video tutorial. The idea behind the collaboration was that Etsy shop owners like me encourage entrepreneurs-to-be to get creative and sett up their very own Etsy store. If you are interested you can follow the #ProjectNewYear hashtag via Instagram and Twitter for further handmade inspiration.

[Video tutorial] DIY lip kisses heels

DIY lip kisses heels
[Video guide]
Today’s DIY inspiration are the “kissed” heels designed by much-hyped London shoe designer Sophia Webster for beauty giant Revlon. This particular pair (there are seven) with the funny name Liza Get Lippy were inspired by Revlon Colorstay Ultimate Suede Lipstick. The color of the kisses on the shoe matches one of the lipstick’s shade. Pretty impressive. 

So to turn your old heels into hot statement accessory you will need heels with smooth surface, red leather and a strong glue. This tutorial is perfect for shoes with scratches or cracks. You just cover the damages with “kisses” :). If you not comfortable to work with leather you can use faux leather or vinyl fabric.

[DIY] Bear Hood Cape

Bear Hood Cape
[Step by step tutorial] 

Meet little David, my friend’s 2 years old toddler. Not only is he the cutest kid on the block he is also the most talented model I’ve had the pleasure to work with. He posed, jumped, smiled and growled like a real pro. And everything for only 2 lollipops :). 
I created this adorable bear hood cape for the #ProjectNewYear called into by Etsy. The idea behind the project is that Etsy shop owners like me encourage parents, aunts, uncles, sisters or brothers to get creative and even consider setting up their very own Etsy store. You can follow the #ProjectNewYear hashtag via Instagram and Twitter for further handmade inspiration.

Fold the knit in fourths so you have 4 layers. Place the tape measure on the corner, measure down the half of the wingspan, and draw the circle with the chalk.

Measure down the neck radius and draw the neckline.

Sew the parts together with the zigzag stitch. Put a plastic hand gauge under the feet so the seam doesn’t stretch.

Flatten the seams with an iron if it’s stretched.

Turn 2 cm (1.6″) outside the hood edges and front of the cape. That way you will have a contrast piping.
