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.

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?
There is nothing more classic in women’s footwear than a good pair of Mary Jane shoes, best known in Spanish as Merceditas. I think all of us have or have had a pair in our life. Flat or heeled, black or colored.. this shoe is a good classic.
Today I decided to do a DIY to my old pair that I had forgotten in the bottom of my closet. They are ideal for this season, that is not extreme cold or extreme warm. Make a bow for your shoes and wear a great classic in a different way.
As I mentioned in the post of DIY clutch with latch, there’s nothing like a visit to the hardware store to get inspired with all the materials they have. All may have another purpose and other ways we can use them. Like these aluminum hinges. I liked their brightness and size, and why not make a nice elastic hinge bracelet? This tutorial is super easy and you won’t need to set a closure.
