Big Crafts In My Future

While I was on talking about my therapeutic cleaning yesterday, I posted this picture: What’s boring, dull, and bland all over?  Definitely my bulletin board.  I have big plans of reinventing it, but all week I have been trying to figure out what to do since I want to cover it with fabric in a more permanent fashion than last time but there is no way to remove the frame and reattach it later.  Today, I was impulsive and decided to just cut the corkboard out of the frame.

     Now I can either staple, tack, or tape the fabric to the back.  I think I will add some ribbon in a criss-cross pattern so that I don’t have to tack everything on and ruin pictures.  However, all

DIY Custom Flats The Way You Like It

I looked through my shoe wardrobe a few weeks ago only to find many very basic shoes, mostly black.  While they are practical, sometimes I want something more to make an outfit more personal.  Girls just wanna have fun, right?  Well, shoes are fun to wear, but not if they are completely boring.  I found a pair of black flats that I had bought at Payless a couple years ago.  I had never worn them because they were shiny, which I tend to not like because sometimes it makes shoes look cheap (which they were).  I think I bought them for under ten dollars, but I decided that my money isn’t to be thrown away.  I was determined to make something of the black, boring shoes that had been sitting in my closet for way too long.

I came across this post at Make It and Love It and was hooked.  I don’t have a lot of money to use to buy new fabric constantly, so I looked to my custom bulletin board for inspiration.  Well, not even inspiration because I stole the fabric from the bulletin board to use on the shoes.  I still love the green polka-dotted fabric, which

Polka-Dotted Inspiration

I have created a super simple tutorial for creating a fabric covered bulletin board on a budget. The obstacle I faced was that I did not want to spend money on fabric that was going to be permanently attached to a bulletin board because the colors of my apartment are different than my room at home with my parents. I also wanted to make something else out of the fabric at a later time, so I had to find a way to attach the fabric without permanently fixing it to the cork.

I started with a fairly large bulletin board and one yard of this green polka dot fabric I got from JoAnn Fabric and Craft Store. It is a home decor fabric, so it is thick and very

A Dress To Impress

This summer my mom decided it was time for me to learn to sew my own clothing. Her idea and my idea totally collided when we both suggested I have my first clothing item made by me be a dress! I used to be anti-feminine everything (in high school when I was still really lame and emotional), but now I am all about feminine flair and LOVE dresses (although I am hardly ever brave enough to wear them). We headed to the fabric store and picked a pattern for a “somewhat simple” dress. Here is what I picked – a McCall’s
