    I've caught the sewing bug after taking my first introductory course and I'm obsessed with DIY projects :smile:

    Inspired by American Apparel's leather pouches

    These cost over 95% LESS than AA's version. I'm so tempted to open up an etsy shop!

    I found this diy project I'm dying to try, it's to turn a pair of canvas shoes into creepers. I think it's cool since creepers are so expensive and most of them are kind of emo looking.

    I was wondering if anyone tried making themselves shoes before? :smile:

    I´m thinking of taking concert tshirts that are too big and cut the print and sew it on a smaller tshirt. Any useful sites? :smile:

    i have some advice, i think the easiest thing to do would be to simply turn the shirt into a simple halter top.

    xojane has some tips (this is magazine editor jane pratt's website)
    http://www.xojane.com/diy/alter-t-shirt-into-halter-and-racerback-tank

    there are many etsy sellers that will do that for you, if you arent experienced.

    i send all mine to an etsy seller in canada that charges 25$ per shirt (including shipping) i consider it well worth it.

    I wanted to share a DIY that my husband did for me. I am in love with tartan, so he customized Kurt Geiger shoes with tartan fabric, and here is the result :

    Thank you Kokobombon, and KemAlnagdy, I will tell him, and I am sure he will be pleased :smile:
    And you are right it kind of look like cut out shoes, I didn't realize until you told me, but it is true :wink:

    I recently bought a black bow tie but now I think I look like a waitress if I wear it with a white shirt... any ideas on how to change it? "bedazzled" it or something?
