so i've been inspired by reading all these posts...im thinking about putting some studs on my boots. I've photoshopped an idea i have and just wanted some feedback. be honest please, im new to the whole DIY thing.

I wanted to start with bigger studs towards the back and make them smaller as they move toward the front of the boot on top, and on the bottom have all the same size just two rows.

*photo by me*


and ignore the mess in the background

Amazing, Cocoly. I'll have to try it myself.

I wonder if any fabric would do. I have a fairly thick black shirt that would do nicely since it's faded and could use an "update."

Mmm Yes. ! that looks great. I love the fabric you have chosen. I've been putting off making a skirt like it for yonks. But you just made me put doing so on top of my list. I'll look through my stash of fabric tomorrow to see if I have anything that would be nice for this..

^ Would be sooo cool to have a diy version of the mirror shoes!

I love the selfknitted rodarte inspired sweater and the shredded tshirt above!

A few days ago I searched throug my scrapbook and found some diy-inspo from an old vogueissue:



Decided to make my own! Bought an oversized, grey knit at h&m, and started to make.. To make.. What's it called in english? Those puffed balls in Norwegian we call it "dusker"!



Suddenly i was really unsecure if this looked like som weird artistic-homemade-mommy-thing or if it could be cute. I need some advice, cause i will not spend my time making pyffy balls ("dusker") to fill it up with if its an disaster. Watcha say?

I never DIY, myself ... so I cannot really tell. I'm no expert.
But I guess : break the mirror (as you would break some mosaic) and then stick them on your heels. I think a well done platform would make it easier.

Here the blogger DIYer reply to a comment on her blog :

Thanks! I found an enormous bag of mirror scraps on ebay for next to nothing (1 lb? or was it 1 1/2 lb? for $6!) Amazing the things you can buy online. Anyway, I cut the shards with a glass cutter, crushed some, snapped others, just to make them as irregular as possible. It wasn't very difficult to cut the pieces, although it did get ugly at one point, when I got frustrated and started snapping them with my bare hands, haha...

Nay, Christina! Even the photo of the magazine, I wouldn't wear it. The sweater itself is cute.
