My newest design: The slouch re-imagined. These are made to order in any color. $20 and $25 for multicolored.
- 1. Design your image and get it in the size you want.
- 2. Print the image on t-shirt transfer paper.
- 3. Cut the shapes out.
- 4. Place the images, face down, onto the suede side of the leather.
- 5. Place some baking paper over the leather and the images and place your iron on it. Make small circles with your iron for about 10 seconds. (I know the transfer paper package says to hold it on longer, but the suede will darken or shrink if it’s exposed to heat for a long time).
- 6. Remove the toplayer of paper from the images after it cooled down. If the paper still sticks to the leather, place the iron on the image for a couple more seconds.
- 7. Cut the shapes out of the leather.
- 8. Make a hole in the leather.
- 9. Apply the earring accessories.
- 10. Apply the necklace accessories.
DIY: Crochet beret. I’m using a medium thick yarn that’s half wool, half acrylic and a K size hook. I start with the chain four, 12 double crochet method to form the base I gradual increase around.
I chain four then DC 12 times in fourth chain from hook. Next round is 2 DC in each stitch. Then I do one round of shell stitch chaining one and skipping two stitches between shells.
So it’s basically 2 rows of DC, 1 round of shell stitch while gradually increasing on the DC rows until it has the circumference desired. This is a good “One skien” project for those looking to use up old stash by making a fun fashion accessory.
If anyone wants the full pattern let me know. It’s very quick and easy.
DIY Anime Make-up tutorial video by
ANASTASİYA SHPAGİNA a Russian anime fan. The video is in Russian but she’s giving clear direction so you really could do everything along with her. You’ll just need to make sure you have the same kind of make-up brushes she’s using to get closest to her results.
I thought this was a fun idea for Halloween. I’m still looking for a costume myself….
Here is my tank top I made over last weekend using the DIY tank top tutorial I posted last time. I used my Animal Muppet T-shirt. I had to cut a little extra deep into the sleeves and down the back neckline as I took them off. You may find you need to do this too when you make yours. It really depends on the shirt you are using. So be created and be bold! Don’t be afraid to modify according to your desire.
Have a beautiful day!

Here’s what I’ve been working on today. It’s a new design called the lariat scarf with my own variations. It’s chunky but narrow and extra long so you can multi-wrap it around the neck more or less to create the look you want.
Each one I make will be unique and as always, I do custom orders in whatever color, length, combo, you want!
