DIY blog with tutorials that any student can make and will actually use. Before I reblog/post anything - I ask myself, "Is this something I can actually make? Is it something I will actually use?" If the answer is yes. I put it up. - Zehra
How absolutely darling are these? Dress them up or down as much as you like. So useful! And practical too especially i you have some old canvases laying around that you don’t want to (re)paint! I am going to make up a few of these and use them at the front door for mail and key organization!
There’s no way that whatever I put in these wall pockets would be nearly as cute as what’s in this photo.
This is an extremely easy, fast fashion DIY! All you need is an old sweater and some studs. Very carefully place the studs in the “holes” of the knit, to avoid ripping of the fabric. Be creative, use different colored studs, make patterns etc… I’m very minimalistic so mine turned out like this :) what do you think?
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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)
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.

I would love to post everyday and I’m sorry I don’t! I work and I intern and I have classes, so I try to keep my queue full when I’m available but please guy submit DIYs or send me a link to a DIY you made and I’ll reblog you or credit you or whatever. Thank you.
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!
