Jeans Drawstring Backpack Tutorial


Howto make an easy drawstring backpack from some old jeans. I like it to grab those bags when I quickly go out for a walk or when I’m heading to the city. Very handy.

Recycling is better than buying, buying, buying, and you can make it custom to your own taste.

In this tutorial I take you through the steps of making one. I hope you like it, please let me know in the comments below.

DIY Sleeveless Sweater and place a Stencil


A short video how I remove the sleeves from my old sweater. Upcycling; turn your old sweater into something wearable again, a Sleeveless Sweater..

I’m heading to Hong Kong in 2 weeks. Even tho it’s winter there at the moment, I think this sleeveless sweater will be ideal for me to wear.

For this project I used a seam ripper, because I think it gives a neat result, but if you’re more in a hurry you can also use your scissors and just cut the sleeves off.

I also show how to make a quick stencil and cover an old print. I went for te Hong Kong flag as design. Make sure to put some thick layer of paint to fully cover the old print 😉

If you use the oven to dry your fabric make sure to put it on low temperature. I put it on 60 °C (140 °F) for about 5 minutes.

DIY Dog Shoes / Boots –
Do they really work?


My 15 year old labrador is getting a bit weak, so her paws are slipping away all the time. I thought maybe some grippy dog shoes will help her to walk more stable. In this video I decided to make some, to put it to the test. Just made them out of some old jeans and the sole of old shoes I had laying around. But do they really work, those dog boots? 😂

Neck Pillow Travel Hack – How To Make a Fillable Neckpillow


In this video I show you how to make a Neck Pillow and fill it up with clothes to save space when I travel. Since I already have some spare shirts with me while traveling. Why not put it in the Neck Pillow 😉

When traveling is done, you get your clothes out and fold the pillow to a very small package.

The dimensions I used are:
Width: 43cm (17 inch)
Height: 35cm (14 inch)
Tube thickness: 11cm (4.5 inch)

The size depends on your body. You can play a bit with sizes while making your template. Another tip is to fold the template in the middle before cutting to make 2 even sides.

Cheers!
