I'm making my own bedspread since i can't afford to buy one
I am crocheting blocks and then I want to attach them with blocks of contracting fabric. Maybe do some beading on it in the end. Kind of Arabian Nights on Acid feel
arabian nights on acid is good...

I this thread, too!


I've been playing around with my jeans, and I cut about 3 1/2 inches out just below the knee and then reconnect them with a black garter

Well, whenever any of my prettier tights see a hole I use the material of the lower legs to make fingerless gloves of whatever length by cutting five small holes in the feet.

Iíll use lace, ribbon or mesh netting on almost anything; a strip of gathered net in a diagonal from one corner of a plain top to the other, pleases me when done in certain colours for instance.

The glitter hairspray that god knows who would actually uses in their hair, looks well on black cloth or shoes, particularly in the dark.

Myself and others wrote all over someone elseís Converses, and they were being busy elsewhere. But worry not since they did approve of the improvement, which was surprisingly present. :grrr:

Artificial flowers when pulled apart and gathered again in smaller groups can add interest to whatever I'd like.

Iíd an ancient vintage silky dressing gown in cerise pink, with lace and the like, but the ends of the elbow-length sleeves in their puffy glory, were preventing my using it as a jacket. So Iíve taken them off that and added them, folded back, to a plain black top.

I decided that an old, old-fashioned lunchbox I covered in black and white magazine pictures, can now be a bag.

Not my thing, but my friend made a loverly belt by threading ribbon through old cassette tapes. Iíve told her to sew a tape measure down the side of jeans, since Iíd like that, on someone other than me.

Have drawn now a blank, for the time being.

Not really a customisation.. but i'm so short that I stock up on nice fitting capris during the summer...

They're normal pant-length on me...

I love the customization ideas on this thread

Rigth at the moment I'm using ribbon to evrything, on my shoes. on my skirts and the handle on my bags, where i'm taking a lot in many colours and put them togeather.

Sometimes I also use children's socks as sleeves, I think it's very cute.
