Makeover week! I was still pretty productive this week, I painted my basement hallway, made over my mousepads and tote bag, and now i’m preparing to learn how to sew. I just wish crafting wasn’t so expensive, there’s so many pretty things to make if you have the money. I’m just scavenging ebay for $1/yd fabrics and searching around thrift shops and dollar stores because craft stores are pricey. I guess since i’m being so crafty for now, i’ll post little tutorials.

Quick tote bag printing tutorial:


I took a canvas tote bag that I had previously wrote all over in fabric pen and decided to cover up all of my embarrassing teenage ramblings about my love for blink-182. 

Materials:

  • freezer paper
  • fabric ink
  • paintbrush
  • canvas tote bag
  • exacto blade
  • iron

Steps:

  1. Have an idea of what a design. I went simple and printed off the the word bag in the font rockwell on plain printer paper. Then I traced it onto freezer paper, you could just draw whatever you want on freezer paper. 
  2. Take your exacto knife and cut out whatever you want to be colored in on the freezer paper. I cut a big circle out of my paper so I could get a big black circle then I cut out each of the letters. 
  3. Position everything onto the bag and iron the freezer paper (with the glossy side against the fabric) onto the bag until it sticks and doesn’t move.
  4. Squirt fabric ink all over and brush the paint evenly everywhere. Be careful around the letters so that you don’t accidentally peel off the freezer paper.
  5. Wait about 2 hours for it to dry and peel off the freezer paper with your fingers. (I was impatient and waited for one hour, it was okay)
  6. Voila! You have a pretty bag now.

DIY: Fourth of July Shorts!
Materials:- Jeans Shorts (or pants that can be cut into shorts)- White and Red Fabric Paint- Paint Brush- Star Stencil- Ruler- Painter’s Tape
This is a quick and easy way to create Fourth of July shorts without paying a fortune!  To make these I first recycled an old pair of jeans by cutting them into shorts.  I then used a star stencil and white fabric paint to create the stars.  I then used a ruler, painter’s tape, and the red fabric paint to create the red stripes.  If you would like to lay out your design before permanently painting on your jeans you can use chalk to sketch because it easily washes off.  Once all of the fabric paint has been applied, let dry for 4 hours and wash in 72 hours.

Easy Homemade Pickles | A Beautiful Mess
I know what you might be thinking - why would I make pickles when I can just buy them from the store?! Well for one, you will know exactly what is going in these ones - no preservatives in these! Secondly, how cool is it to say to someone ‘would you like a homemade pickle? I made them. From scratch. In my home. Pickles’. Yes, they might start calling you ‘pickle girl’ and avoid you at parties, but I think it’s worth it. Plus (here’s my catchphrase!) they would make awesome gifts, especially for new home owners!

DIY Charlotte Olympia Inspired Kitty Flats Tutorial from Clones N Clowns here. The DIY pair isn’t stitched and doesn’t come with an “adhesive Polaroid picture which can be placed on the outside of your shoe box to archive your Charlotte Olympia collection” (which BTW is a really good idea), but the DIY also doesn’t cost $689. Top Photo: $689 Charlotte Olympia Kitty Flats here, Bottom Photo: DIY by Clones N Clowns. For more cat DIYs including tees, cat beds and cat jewelry go here.
