burnt up tee

good-id-good-1.jpg
BleachBlack took this old tee and burned some holes it – and I love how it looks! She explains best what she did, so here is a quote: For starters, I think vintage tee’s with some sort of faded graphic work best… after all the point is for it to look lived in, right?! I would also make sure the tee is 100% cotton for best results. I used cigarettes, although I’m sure you could use some incense… just as long as it produces an ash. When the ash is sitting on the fabric it should burn from the center out and create this lovely burn color + hole.
Awesome! I can’t wait to try it the moment I get home from work today…

You you could change the webpage title burnt up tee | Free People Clothing Boutique Blog to something more suited for your webpage you write. I liked the the writing nevertheless.

I’m really feeling these Matryoshka dolls by Irina Troitskaya. I’ve always loved Matryoshka dolls, and these ones are so cool and unique! All of her sets have a specific theme – for example, the top set is naturally white animals, another set is called the most popular animals from Russian fairytales. I love it! See more on Booooooom!

These are so beautiful. I especially love the little red flowers along the base of the first set! So adorable. These dolls are so fun to paint yourself as well. They used to sell them at urban and for my groups final in our lab class at Parsons last semester, we bought two sets of them and painted them to represent members of the Brighton Beach Russian community. Here's the link to photos of them for inspiration for others! : ) http://s265.photobucket.com/albums/ii207/jenny2008356/Matryoshka%20dolls/ xoxo

map-like quilts

I saw these gorgeous map quilts by Leah Evans on Design Crisis, and I am really impressed with them! I love maps, I love quilting, it’s a great combination! They sure look like they’d be difficult to make, though worth it! To see more of Leah’s work, check out her site, and for more interesting quilts, see here, here, and here.

awesome picture idea

I love that all the lights in these pictures are hearts! Color Me Katie did it by cutting out a little heart on a piece of paper and putting it over her camera lens. I would never have thought that the outcome would be lights turned to hearts! It would be cool to try with other shapes…

wool and the gang

First of all, how amazing is that name?!
Wool and the Gang is a group of knitters selling Crazy Sexy Wool from Peru and making clothing and accessories. They were just in New York during fashion week for an opening on Bond Street that attracted attention from lots of the celebrities in town for the shows like Erin Wasson, Mary Kate, and Peaches Geldof (You can see the party photos on their blog.)
There is much exploring to be done on their website for knitting projects, accessories, wool, and inspiration!

This little crochet necklace by Pretty Penny is so cute, and I’m really excited because it turns out she has a tutorial on how to make it on her blog! Check it out if you like the necklace too – I can’t wait to start on mine!

I would have never ever thought of using pop can tabs to make clothes, but Tiffany of The Art of Can Tabistry sure did! The corset made of can tabs is actually really cool! I’d totally wear it around, but I think I’d pick different colors for the yarn. Above is Tiffany’s mother modeling a hat, corset, and shoes made of can tabs! Holy cow! I don’t think I’ll ever look at tabs the same way. There are a few tutorials on The Art of Can Tabistry too, so if you’ve got a bunch of pop can tabs laying around…

DIY snow globes

I’m really digging this idea from fra(a)iing! She used water, glitter, some small cute jars, some plastic animals and waterproof glue to make these snow globes! You could really go wild with this idea, and put sequins, little jewelry or all kinds of things in a snow globe! I love it!

elaine -Aug 13, 2009, 8:21AM

Mack -Feb 24, 2009, 3:04PM
