I changed this shirt because it was waaay to tight around my elbows, here’s what I decided to do with it.
In this picture I try to show how tight it is… I couldn’t bend my arm at all.
First I drew two lines, the first (on the left) is where I’ll cut it, the second (on the right) is until where I will fold it.
After I cut it I rolled up the sleeves and next I pinned it down.
Next I tried it on to see if I liked it and last I sew along the edges where I rolled it up.
This is the final result. 🙂
Today I’ll be transforming long vintage shorts into a more fashionable item.
I started by taking off the buttons down the sides.
Then I marked how short I wanted
them (top line) and I added about 1 dm because I’ll have to roll them up later. So I cut them at the bottom line.
Next I rolled up the bottom of the
shorts the way I prefered and pinned it down.
Last I sew along the rolled up part.
This is the final result:
Today we’re making a sugar scrub. But first off all: Why would you do this? It’s very simple your skin is constantly making new skin cells and the old ones fall off. But not all of them! When these old cells stick on your skin it quells your skin. When you scrub you remove these old cells and makes your skin healty, shine and soft. So why won’t you do it? It’s super simple! Materials:
Sugar, any kind of oil for your body, a jar of your choice, a blender and rose petals.
What to do for the scrub: First step is to fill your jar with sugar, you can choose how much you want. Next is to take your oil and mix it with the sugar, u can use as much oil as you want, it’s totaly up to you! I put oil into it until all of my sugar is wet. Last step for the scrub you put in your petals, like with the oil, as much as you want but save a few for the end. You’re going the take your blender en mix it all up. When I was finished the petals were all in very small pieces and my scrub was purple. I wanted some bigger pieces of the petal in my scrub so I used some more petals, cutted them as big as I wanted and mixed it with a spoon. Now you’re scrub is ready!
What to do with the jar: I painted the lid in the color of my rose petals. I laid some rose petals on the bottom of the jar and added the scrub. On top I also added some petals. I putted a bow around the jar and my gift was ready! But you can ofcourse do whatever you like with your jar! 🙂
Lately I’ve been working on an altered book. And I felt like sharing some of the pages! Get inspired! 🙂
This is how the cover looks like, if you would like a DIY on it, be sure to let me know!
In here I have some ‘Tumblr words’ with ‘travel’ as theme. Some examples:
Any kind of frame you want. You don’t need the glass in it.
A teddy bear of your choice.
that’s it! let’s begin! 🙂
Step 1) I wanted my frame to have a grey background, so I took some kind of grey fabric and with a stapler I attached it to the back of my frame.
Step 2) I also wanted my bear to have his hands before his eyes and for that I sew his hands to his face.
Step 3) All that you have to do now is glue the bear on the frame, I used a hot glue gune but you can do it with a lot of other kinds of glue. Now you’re all finished, just need to find a nice place to put it! 🙂
