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 – Roll Up Bamboo Blinds

How to make easy roll up bamboo blinds. For our outdoor kitchen in Hong kong I wanted to make blinds. To protect us a bit from the sun and rain.

In this video I show you how to make those blinds. It’s an easy DIY project. Also pretty cheap. One blind cost me less then 10 usd to make. I decided to go for bamboo because I like the material and those mats are easy to roll. But of course you can also chose a different material if you like to.

It’s very satisfying when you can open and close your own hand made blinds 😉
