It’s that time again!
I’ve been preoccupied with family visiting and my mother’s birthday, and so am still a couple days behind my blog “editorial schedule” LOL. (I can’t believe I’m at the point where I even have one??!!) I can’t wait to finish cleaning out my office and get back to the DIY! So here’s what’s been going around the Internet this week…
Create your own Burberry-style Emu Coat at ILoveToCreate! No, not made of emus…or emu-patterned…or looking like emus…well, you’ll just have to see for yourself. Is this extreme crafting in the making??
Michael’s Medieval Cuff Project has shades of Dannijo written all over it…and all you need is some general-purpose craft glue for this fabulous metal and chain mishmash!
A Pair and a Spare had the amazing opportunity to collaborate with J. Brand, and created some Jason Wu-inspired lace jeans. Super-easy and chic!
Angela Osborn posted an incredibly inspiring Guide to DIY. Essential advice for any beginner looking to start any DIY’ing of accessories or wearables!
I’m inspired by these Prada-inspired flip-flops from the amazing Bye Bye Soccer Mom, who layered a couple pairs of Old Navy flip-flops for the same effect. So creative! (And you couple also potentially try craft store thick foam for contrasting layers in-between.)
Have you seen …love, Maegan‘s DIY Leather Cut-Out Statement Necklace? So easy to make, and yet so glam. If you have any leather scrap lying around, this is the perfect use for it!
NEW DIY BlOG DISCOVERY! SwellMayde, who’s done a number of on-trend projects and collaborated with Foam Magazine, came up with this Ethnic Blanket Vest earlier this year…which would be perfect now that Fall’s just around the corner. Check out all her other fabulous projects too!
Proof that simply subtracting about 1.5″ from either side of the Center Front of a button-up blouse will produce an attractively-draped V-neck. Patternmaking 101? Naw -it’s a new blouse makeover tutorial from Freshly Given! Amazing results, and just from a little nip/tuck.
If your project was featured above, feel free to grab a button and share the DIY!

Thanks so much Carly, for your kind words. I’ll have to check that Michael’s cuff out.
I finally received my lego dayplanner. It was actually shipped from Hong Kong. Kids and I love it 😉 they can’t keep their little hands off it. LOL
