A list of neat or inspiring things I have discovered around the internet recently. –
ShopRuche‘s new Spring Lookbook. Most of the looks are right up my alley, and are very simple but happy outifts, but the above is my favorite. I love the denim dress and the addition of the vest over it. I also love all the shoes in this lookbook, because most of them remind me of shoes my mother wore in the seventies and eighties – wooden heels, simple leather straps and classy-looking silhouettes.
This tutorial by Dandelion Drift for leather heart pockets. I love using leather in a lot of my crochet projects, so this tutorial immediately had my mind racing with ideas. Such a simply idea, but so effective. She adds the pockets onto little girls’ dresses, but you could easily adapt the idea for more adult clothing, for example, by either using the heart shape or any shape you’d like and adding pockets to a simple shift dress or t-shirt.
The entire weaving tag on Pinterest. My sister-in-law and I were going crazy over the amount of ideas and inspiration. Weaving is such a cool and beautiful form of fiber art. Seriously, go check it out. From more traditional weaving and basket weaving to pin weaving and weaving onto sticks and twigs, from kids projects to easy home decor projects ideas, there’s a ton of inspiration and pretty pictures on this tag.
And just to give you another weaving project idea, here’s a tutorial from Ellen of The Long Thread I found at least a year ago that’s still one of my favorites. It’s a simple tutorial using chipboard and embroidery floss to make a small necklace pendant. Again, even though the project is aimed at kids, it could easily be adapted for a more adult necklace, and also just seems like a lot of fun!
Have a beautiful and blessed day!
