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!

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?
