truebluemeandyou: DIY Vlieger & Vandam Inspired Guarden Angel Leather Clutch Tutorial. One fashion blogger who saw this on my site just wrote that this was the best knockoff ever. And I have to agree. The possibilities are endless.
DIY Vlieger & Vandam Inspired Guarden Angel Leather Clutch Tutorial from Passions for Fashion here. This is not a really easy DIY, but the instructions are really good. I used Chrome to translate from Danish to English, but in the comments section she has an English translation. I would strongly suggest reading the comments’ section for advice on the thickness of leather and note the temps are in Celsius not Fahrenheit so 85 degrees Celsius is 185 degrees Fahrenheit. Very cool DIY project. Top Photo: Vlieger & Vandam FW’12/13 as seen here, Bottom Photo: DIY from Passions for Fashion. *For more knockoffs go here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/knockoff

DIY Easy Knotted Leather Beaded Charm Bracelet Tutorial from Meli Melo here. This is so easy because you use the leather to knot on the lobster clasp and use head pins for the beaded charms. I used Chrome to translate from German to English but there is a translation button on the lower right hand side.

Do you have any ideas for things to do to a denim jacket? I’ve already cut off the sleeves
truebluemeandyou: Go to truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/jacket and on page 1 and 2 I’ve posted vests with inserted sweater sleeves and on page 3 there is a restyled jacket with leather sleeves. There is also a cool button back (skull) denim jacket tutorial here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/post/10640376036/diy-embellished-skull-button-back-jean-jacket-tutorial
What are your suggestions?
callasoreon answered: You can make really cool designs with safety pins!
truebluemeandyou; I have two safety pin tutorials with a crown here and the other with wings here.
inspirationrealisation answered: knitted sleeves or use the sleeves of a sweater or a sweatshirt!
whaddaworm answered: you can add patches to it, like these http://www.iamvibes.co.uk/products
truebluemeandyou: you can also get different looks if you don’t want to embroider or use patches with iron on tee shirt paper.
wittywallflower answered: Are we still doing the ombré thing? Could dip dye or bleach it
Truebluemeandyou: I’m still seeing lots of dyed/ombre denim. You can check my blog out here: truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/bleach and truebluemeandyou.tumblr.com/tagged/dye
rainbowelbows said: I love cutting out the back and replacing it with lace, or adding lace detailing on the pockets. (See the A Beautiful Mess denim shirt tutorial.)
jessicariddle answered: bleach it ! or just the top or bottom half far a gradient affect.
