I am a beginner DIYer but I like to think that I’m moving up the ranks…… quickly :)

What have you reconstructed? Sewn? Created? What can you say is your original masterpiece?

Time to show off!!

Wow I admire people who DIY, I’ve not really done something unless an outfit needs basic altering/hemming or the buttons are coming loose. Would love to see your creations!

I make lots of DIY headbands, like the pearl one you can see here:
http://www.ohmyvogue.com/2010/12/im-throwing-on-my-red-heels.html”;
Or the sailor knot headband you can see here:
http://www.ohmyvogue.com/2010/08/hey-you-flossy-sailor.html”;
Oooor this one with shiny stones here:
http://www.ohmyvogue.com/2010/09/gamble-for-it.html”;
I have more than 100 headbands made by myself, it’s obsessive!! haha

And I made a pair of Jeffrey Campbell DIY wedges. I bought a pair of simple wedges and put lots of thumbtacks on the wedge. They look exactly as this pair:

I reconstruct a lot of clothes. I also sew clothes from scratch. I’ve been sewing for about 5 years. I just learned how to knit a couple weeks ago and I’m on my second scarf. I just started dabbling in jewelry making and ordered a bunch of supplies a couple days ago. I will eventually get around to outfit posts and then I will post pictures of DIY stuff as well.

I love DIY projects!

I really love the internet because of all of the amazingly talented people who can turn anything into a work of art. People can drive me crazy with their talent!! :)

I have only recently (as in last week :)) taken any pics or made any videos of my projects. The first (and only) project I have online is my tutorial on how to hem your own jeans with the original hems intact. You can view it at http://www.the-perfect-jeans.com/how-to-hem-jeans.html

I’m planning on doing a tutorial soon on DIY destroying and ripping jeans, as well as making the perfect jean shorts, repairing denim, etc.

I love to mainly sew, crochet, and knit. Recently finished one pair of legwarmers but I messed up a bit on the pattern..oops. Also, I just finished another dress and I actually quite like it a lot. I don’t have a photo of me wearing it (yet) but I have a photo of it on my blog

I’m hoping to get started on more projects but I recently moved in with my bf and my fabric stash and main materials are at home (200 miles away) =(

I like to create my own accessories and make shirts and skirts from scratch. It is fun to make your own stuff without relying on the fashion world. I created this studded floral belt and tried to make it look as antique as I could.
