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.
In this video I show you how to make some gloves out of an old sweater. It’s an very easy sew project, can be done in a few minutes. No need to go to the store and buy gloves if you can make them yourself, diba?
You can make the sleeves as long as you like to. So this one will keep you warm during the winter 😉
DIY Dreamcatcher tutorial. In this video I show how to make a dream catcher. Easy D.I.Y. Project.
Can easily be made out of scrap materials and gives a nice result. I liked to use some materials I found at the sea. like shells and bird feathers. Of course you can make yours in any theme you like.
Make sure to use a strong cardboard so your hoop won’t bend too much. U can also use a metal ring if you have one laying around.
How to make a woven paper basket just from some old news papers and a bit of glue. Easy D.I.Y. project. No need for special tools. Recycling 😉
I have had a slim wallet / card holder for years. But now it is really worn, so time to make a new one.
In this video I show you how to make a cardholder out of jeans fabric. Maybe you have some old jeans laying around. It’s an easy project and won’t take too much time to make.
