D.I.Y. Geeky Graphic Tank

I love Pinterest! The fact that I can find all different kinds of DIY ideas and tutorials, is awesome for when I am in a creative slump or super stressed, which is how I have been lately. So to keep my sanity, I decided to look through Pinterest for a small and fun DIY project for tops. I wear a lot of tanks to work, mainly because I am running around set like a crazy person and it can get really hot under the studio lights and in the building 😦

So as the title said, the DIY I found is how to make your own graphic tanks. To add some fun and creativity to the mix, I decided to create my own graphics, that have both geeky and fashion elements to them. I am just designing a whole bunch and then I will decide on which ones I am going to actually make.

So I tested the waters with one of my favorites 😀

DIY: Fancy Hanger

I seem to have gotten bitten by the creative bug 😀 I bought this new dress at probably one of my favorite clothing haunts on the East Coast, located in the charming town of New Hope, Pa called Thirteen Vintage. The owners are amazing and know their stuff.
Check out their web-store  —> Thirteen Vintage
You will love them 😀

Now onto my DIY. I always see these gorgeous hangers on Etsy and decided to try my hand at one. and it’s really easy.

My Tools:|
-High temp hot glue gun, with added glue sticks
– a Wooden Hanger
– Fabric (I choose black lace)
– Accessories to glam it up.

I will admit, the back of this doesn’t look very pretty, seams and what not with the hot glue. But I think the front looks pretty good. I learned a trick though, You can tell in the close up, I originally was glueing both sides of the lace to the hanger but then I discovered that if i pulled tight enough and in sections I didn’t need to glue the front down. Live and Learn :3

How do you fancy up hangers?

My Goodness, the last two weeks have been crazy busy with so many projects and photo shoots! Any who, to keep my sanity, I decided to look through the internet for a small and fun DIY project for tops. I wear a lot of tanks to work, mainly because I am running around set like a crazy person and it can get really hot under the studio lights and in the building 😦

I also own some cute tanks, that I am going to make patterns out of. So my custom shirts can be completely custom 😀

Here are some of the designs I have made so far 😀

An Animal Eared Bowler Hat D.I.Y.

So last year, one of my friends and I talked about a character lolita idea featuring our favorite 100 acre wood friends. I would take on the project of mr. winnie the pooh himself, and she would undertake Piglet, in a classic lolita way.

One of my biggest ideas was creating a hat with pooh bear’s ears. I figured, it wouldn’t be hard, but still to the internet I went. I discovered this great D.I.Y from blogger Ally at Now That’s Pretty.
