DIY Inspriation

Postby Deemanda on Fri May 02, 2008 1:46 pm

Asides from the ones on PRD, there are TONS of Websites, blogs, of basically inspiration. Not all fashion, but sometimes these help me when I need a little crafty kick in the ass to get working.

When you need to get your cupcake on: http://nataliecakes.wordpress.com/

As always; http://www.ohmystars.net/craft/
All your tshirt modding, skirt sewing, or otherwise sewing needs.

Makeup Bag/ Pouch http://threebears.wordpress.com/2007/10 ... -tutorial/

Ballet Flats- http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=35344.0
Off craftster, which is also a great site although I tend to have issues going through all the topics... I have severe internet ADD haha

Tshirt Apron- http://www.craftychica.com/blogs/projec ... -apron.php
Off another interesting site.

Recycling/ DIY projects http://replayground.blogspot.com/

High waisted button front skirt: http://stilldottie.blogspot.com/2008/03 ... skirt.html

Not Martha- http://www.notmartha.org/

For those who like to garden; http://www.yougrowgirl.com/

Soda/ Beer can ash tray: http://ApostolBologA.deviantart.com/art ... l-65975048

i go to ebay a lot and type in something like "DIY punk" and that comes up with a few people that make clothes and sell them for more than i can afford, lol, but it's great for inspiration.
also livejournal.com has a couple groups like t_shirt_surgery and sew_hip that get a lot of posts.
http://www.myjellybean.com/chat/showthread.php?t=295384 has a list of 101 DIY sites, which is pretty nifty too :-)

thanks for all the links! i'm for sure going to check a few of those out.

SO MUCH GOOD STUFF! And thanks for the gardening link. Do we have a gardening thread or threads around here? I just (finally) did my planting like yesterday.

www.sewretro.blogspot.com is one of my faves, and http://voodoostitches.blogspot.com/, she makes it look so freakin' easy to draft vintage patterns.
