How fun is this Diy Cotton + leather clutch purse!

This DIY from abeautifulmess.com is lovely and simple to make.

Here are the supplies:

1. Leather, patterned cotton fabric + solid lining cotton, 18 inch zipper, scissors, sewing machine.

2. Begin by cutting out the pieces for your clutch. You’ll need two 7×16 inch pieces of leather, two 5.5×15 pieces of fabric for the outside pieces, and two 11×15 pieces of fabric for the inside of the clutch. Note: If you want your clutch to be more sturdy, iron on a light fusible interfacing to the back of the patterned fabric pieces.

3. Start by sewing together a piece of the outer fabric and leather by facing both outer sides in and sewing all along the edge. The reason the leather is slightly longer than the fabric is because the leather is thicker so this prevents it from laying as flat as the fabric after it is folded. This way the edges are an even width once the project is finished. 4. Flip the bag right side over to make sure all the lines are even. 5. Repeat this step with the other two pieces and then sew both sides together with the outer sides of the fabric facing in. 6. Once that’s finished, flip it right side out. Note: If this is your first time sewing leather, read our Tips for Sewing Leather article

Dream catcher DIY

Hey there!

These are so gorgeous!  I plan on creating one for a gift – I think.  :)

They seem simple to make.

Tips on creating a seamless look

  • Use yarn with mixed fibers of a similar tone to make it easier to match that of your thrifted doily
  • Think about dying the doily to match the yarn, or immersing the finished product in a dye bath before adding embellishments. If doing this, be sure that you are using natural fibers of similar content. Synthetics require special acid dyes and heat methods, so stick to natural cold water baths if possible.
  • Scout doilies which are more lacy, unscratched, and on the thin side. Thick stiff ones will not give a stretched effect as they will not expand or contort into a natural web-like shape.

She made it with vintage wallpapers but it can be easily swapped with any holiday-related paper as well (ie: Christmas/Valentine’s Day/Easter/etc) to see more on how it was done visit her beautiful blog! XO’s -MO

Fabric Balloon DIY

This is such a sweet idea thanks to a subtle revelry ! I can imagine it for a wedding or any special event.  I adore how playful these balloons are- they are also a bit shabby chic – which I LOVE! They took ordinary party supplies and created balloons that present great interest to any special event. I can imagine such creativity with this project! This would be beautiful with multiple colors and in a combination of coordinating fabrics to add great interest to any celebration.

First blow up a balloon and measure your fabric around it. Cut the fabric to size and cover the fabric in fabric stiffener. Then cover the balloon smoothing out the fabric as you go (no need for perfection, some wrinkles will bring character and personality to each balloon).

Hang the covered balloons from a clothing line with a drop towel underneath and let dry for about 2 days. Once dry, use a pin to gently pop each balloon. As it deflates the balloon will pull away from the fabric leaving you a perfect fabric balloon shape. Attach a long ribbon or rope to the balloon base with glue and finish off with twine.

Hope you enjoy!

DIY Photo Wall

This is such a beautiful idea for photos! I really want to do this on a wall. The two different takes on the idea are just lovely and so creative.

 When I saw this DIY, I must say,  I remembered my pre-teen years fondly.  I never really grew out this idea! When I was younger I remember taping photos, magazine articles and all kinds of posters to my walls.  I adored putting photos of my friends, family and passions on my walls. This is the cleaner and more organized version ! (:

 A photo wall can be a gorgeous and big statement in a room. It can be a place where you can share your special and most important MOments with your guests! A wall like this can set the mood for the entire room.  I enjoy DIYs like this because you can be creative with them- perhaps you have more ideas to bring to the table! find a blank space in you home and make it into an inviting and intriguing space- a place for great conversation and smiles.

When I found this DIY Photo Wall tutorial from Paislee Press (via creaturecomfortsblog.com) I had to share it with you! The key to this wall is the simplicity of color and lines.
