One of our former design team employees, Michelle, recently dug up our Art Director Doub’s glove project from many years ago, and posted it on her blog! You can see it above, it’s pretty fabulous – I couldn’t resist sharing it with you guys as well!
Here’s a little note from Doub about where the inspiration for this project came from:
Well what became fascinating for me when I started the glove project was how elaborately detailed each pair of gloves were. And with each glove it’s delicate little details really dictated each design. I had become obsessed with gloves and was scouring the city for them mainly for the strange need to cut one of the pair up into a silhouette. I still have such an appreciation for the amazing craftsmanship and design of gloves.
It really is a very inspiring project! And speaking of inspiration, our friend Michelle’s blog is called Inspiration Resource, and aptly so! You should definitely check it out if you feel so inclined…

These are so cute and interesting, did Doub sew up the little garments?

crayon rings!

I seriously need a set of these crayon rings by Timothy Liles! How fun are these, for kids and adults alike?! If I wore them anywhere I’d probably draw on everything I walked by though… You can get yourself a set at The Future Perfect.

I would like to make these with my elementary students, any ideas how?

SO Fun! Perfect for coloring shoes at work. Wonder if they come in one standard ring size?

I really like this idea from Daily Danny to use stick pins as a wall decoration. I think the care taken in making the letters a good font shape really makes the decoration! It looks so cool!
Granted, some of us are less than keen to make a million holes in the wall… But, you could always use corkboard or something else as a base!

zig-zag patches

So I was browsing around Craftzine and I saw an awesome DIY for making zig-zag patches like the ones shown above! I love patches like that, and the DIY has a bunch of pictures; it seems really easy! Check it out!
One other thing, also on Craftzine, I saw the picture below:

It reminded me that everything looks better with googly eyes! I need to buy a little bag of them and go wild…

the best lego rings yet

These silver rings come with one, two, or four Lego studs on the top – so you can put any Lego piece you want on them! I love it! If I had one I would definitely put the little Lego flowers on top, it looks so cute! These are by far the best Lego rings I’ve seen, and there are quite a few varieties out there.

Ah my boyfriend gave me a lego ring for our first anniversary, but it's a little different than this. I love it more, though, cause on his the studs face outward, and on mine the studs face inwards, so they fit together!

Nicole, Pruitt and I made this video as we played with all of the different ways to wear the Free People chain vests. I love that just one piece can be worn as a necklace, a belt, a bracelet, a vest, or even to embellish your favorite boots!
What is your favorite way to style them?

springtime collages

These collages by Anna Kunz may not be intentionally spring-y, but they sure do look wonderfully springtime to me! I love the colors she used, as did Dear Ada, where I saw the collages! She actually painted the papers first, then cut them up to make the collages. They’re so appealing…

fabric easter eggs

Believe it or not, Easter is already around the corner, and Retro Mama made these awesome little fabric Easter eggs! I love them! Even better, she posted a how-to make them on her blog – it looks like it will be really easy! Worth checking out if you want to make some cute Easter treats!

Pruitt mentioned a Bleach Black DIY yesterday, and of course we love Kristin and Val! So we are a little sad that we don’t live in LA. The Bleach Black girls will be hosting a DIY session at Space 15 Twenty this Sunday! I hope someone gets some pictures!
If you go, make sure to stop by our We the Free store and say hello to the girls.

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.

Please do it right now. I love it to read something about this theme.
