Hello DIY‘ers, here is a post with a little metallic inspiration… but very “spring feminine”! It’s the “pink gold” or “rose gold“, this trendy yet feminine tone makes a big statement in both clothes and accessories in every place we see this season. I really love it! And I think it complements most of the skin tones. Let’s get inspired by this metal, for our next DIY this week. What will you like to do with this inspiration?
Hello DIY lovers!!! Back with a new DIY and more collaborations! I liked so much the clothes at the HUMANA stores and their campaign DONATE FASHION that I decided to do another collaboration post. Yeah!!! This DIY is simple and easy to do, you don’t need sewing machine or mad crafters skills. In this tutorial I will show you how you can customize a typical “granny” cardigan into something much more cool (ideal for these chilly spring nights out in the festivals and parties of the season) Let’s DIY a fringe cardigan!
For those who live outside of Spain, or simply do not know what Humana is, it’s a foundation that helps promote training and education in other countries. All this by selling textile waste, second-hand clothes. You too can help by donating clothes and buying second hand fashion at Humana.
I chose this men coat (one of my secrets is that I buy a lot in the men section) is a fairly classic and masculine coat and with just a few stitches and some ribbon I customized without losing its essence in a coat XXL. Now I have a trendy coat yet unique, and it only cost me 20 € !
We all know it, it’s always the same… Spring comes with a very changeable weather, and when we’re pretty sure it will only be sun and warmth, heavy rains begins and disrupt our mindset… For me, is the same every year. So we have to pull the coats out again… (BlaH!)
But this time it’s different! Let’s get inspired by these great XXL coats, most known as Boyfriend coats or oversize coats.
In this post you can see different styles, with different looks… For you to get inspired for the next DIY post. Yeah! It’s about DIY oversize coat! So don’t miss it! It’s a collaboration together with HUMANA and their campaign Donate Fashion were I’m one of the collaborating bloggers from Spain. Don’t miss their site!
Have you chosen your favorite oversize coat look yet? I have!
A shrug or bolero for this changing season is great… easy to put on and easy to take of! And if we do this in a fabric like this grey velvet or any other fabric with a little shine to it, we can use it both at night and by day. It’s cool to wear at work with jeans for a casual cool look and over any lacy top for those chilly spring night outs.
In this tutorial I will show you to sew a velvet shrug from 3 fabric rectangles. Ready to start this DIY? Let’s do it!
One of the decorative pieces that I have in my living room, is this branch with small hanging origami birds. Although is very simple, everyone who comes to my house asks about how to make these. I love origami birds, my Danish family always make them. For me it’s a little piece of my family at home and today I will share with you how I make them. They are very easy to make and you can put them in any corner of your home or office. Want to try?
As some of you may know, this last Sunday my husband and I had our birthday… Yes, you heard right, our birthday is the same day. It’s a bit weird, but at the same time it feels a bit like Christmas, it’s a gift exchange tradition.
I was able to buy this old leather armchair. He has always wanted one, but never has taken the step to buy one. (He is a total vintage -leather -industrial freak) And I could not resist buying this beautiful leather chair I found and sneak it home with a surprise party with all his family. He was so surprised! He loved it! At the same time I wanted to give the gift with a DIY touch, to make it a little more personalized. So I opt for making him a DIY stamped pillow for the chair, that says “El sillón de Jose Luis” witch in spanish means “Jose Luis’s chair”
Here I will show you step by step how I did it. It’s a very simple tutorial and with this technique you can make very original pillows. Wan’t to try?
