1 Sweater DIYed Into: Shorts, Leg Warmers and Beret

I swear this girl’s a genie with a sewing machine

In the first minute of this video, there’s also a link to her other video (which I’ve also posted in the DIY tag) where she makes a skirt, a pair of mittens and a beanie out of a similar sweater— definitely check both out!

When I first heard leg warmers were coming back in style I was like “….” but then when I saw how cute they are with boots for the winter, I loved it!

Now I don’t have any leg warmers myself, but I do have a lot of old sweaters that I don’t really wear anymore or that don’t fit so when I found how you can repurpose these old sweaters into this new trend I was so pumped to try it (especially since it’s so simple!)

Basically all you have to do is cut an old sweater sleeve and wear it on the calf part of your leg

And it’s great because you avoid having all that uncomfortable bunchy feeling in you boot due to the sock! 

So here you go! I hope y’all can try this one out!

Friendship Bracelets

I saw these and I thought they were really cute so I wanted to pass on the instructions to you guys

By the way, send me the results if you make any of them or any other ones, because I think these are so pretty!! (sorry if that’s lame, I’ve just always really liked making bracelets)

I actually made a few friendship bracelets for me and my friends for Christmas this year (This wasn’t the whole gift but it was a small thanks for being my friends that I gave them)

There are big ships and small ships, but the best ships are friendships.

By the way, I’ve got another bracelet tutorial soon (I’ll link to it once it’s up) that’s a bit more fashionable/mature if that’s more your style so look out for it!

A cool way to wrap up a CD/DVD for a friend or to pack

Sorry, I couldn’t find the source for this one, so they’re won’t be full instructions but I posted it anyway because I figured people who are more visual might find it to be interesting!

And I’m sorry for being so lame and MIA lately! I’m hopping on this right now and I’ll try to catch up to make it up to y’all~!

16. We aren’t quite finished yet! Now we have to change the file format so that it will appear as a ringtone in iTunes.

17. Navigate to the folder where the new clip is stored on your computer (it will be in the same folder as the original version of the song). To find it in Windows, right-click the clip in iTunes, then choose Show in Explorer. For Mac, right-click and select Show In Finder.

18. Copy the song (press Control and for Windows, Command and C for Mac), and paste the song in the same folder (Control and V or Command and V) so that a third version appears.

21. Important: In iTunes, delete the first AAC clip you made by right-clicking on the clip and selecting delete (if you don’t do this, iTunes might not accept the new ringtone):

And that’s it. You’ve done it! The ringtone is now on the iPhone. Got to Settings on your iPhone, tap Sounds, and you can change to your new ringtone. If the ringtone doesn’t show up on the iPhone, follow the Troubleshooting steps below, else go to the Clean Up section for one important last step.

Troubleshooting

Did the ringtone not appear on your iPhone? Follow these steps.

1. Click on the Summary tab for your iPhone in iTunes:

Summary Tab for iPhone in iTunes How To Create a Free iPhone Ringtone Using iTunes

2. See if the checkbox labeled Manually manage music and video is checked. If not, check it.

Manually Manage Music and Video in Summary How To Create a Free iPhone Ringtone Using iTunes

3. Click on Tones in the left sidebar (older versions of iTunes may say Ringtones instead) and find the ringtone:

Drop Onto Tones How To Create a Free iPhone Ringtone Using iTunes

4. Drag and drop the ringtone onto your iPhone in the left sidebar. The iPhone should begin synching immediately, and the ringtone will appear shortly on your iPhone:

Drag and Drop Ringtone Manually How To Create a Free iPhone Ringtone Using iTunes

More Troubleshooting

Problem: I don’t see Tones or Ringtones in the iTunes Sidebar.

Go into Preferences–>General, and under Show make sure the Tones checkbox is checked.

Problem: You get a scary message “All existing songs, movies and TV shows on the iPhone will be removed.”

You likely received this message because you’ve never synced your iPhone with iTunes before. Cancel the current sync. Unplug your iPhone and plug it back in again. Click on your iPhone in the left sidebar and select Sync in the bottom right corner. Now that iTunes has an image of your current iPhone to work from, continue with putting the ringtone on your iPhone.

Clean Up

You made the ringtone, but there’s one clean-up task to do. We need to fix the Start/Stop time of the original song. Otherwise, the next time you play the song, it won’t play the whole thing. In iTunes, right click the original song, select Get Info –> Options and reset the Start/Stop time by deleting the numbers and leaving the fields blank. All done!

Internet was down a little while (I’m still out of the country and we’re going to a different city tomorrow so I just wanted to post a really quick update about my status and a cute DIY for Leopard Print Shorts) 

aljskdflkj I’m running on minimal sleep and so here you go~

All you need to DO IT is:

1) A pair of denim cut-off shorts from the thrift store. You can always make your own from a pair of old jeans.

2) Dye them a mustard yellow color with fabric dye or just leave them as is.

3) Paint on leopard spots sporadically using fabric paint or markers in black and dark tan.

Hmm, in case you’re unsure how to hand-paint leopard spots, I created this How-to Draw Leopard Spots Diagram

howtodrawleopardspots1 714x832 DIY Leopard Print Cut off Shorts

Use this diagram to paint leopard spots on whatever you want! A lampshade, a headband, a pair of boots, etc!

DIY necklace holder

1.  You will need a flat board to attach your knobs unto.  You can be creative with this.  For my board I’m using a piece of driftwood that I found on this trip to the beach.
I got 4 out of my 5 knobs from our local habitat for humanity store for less than $1.00.
2.  Measure and drill the holes for your knobs.
3.  Attach your knobs to the board using the already drilled holes.
4.  Attach the finished project to the wall and hang your necklaces!
and now my necklaces are officially organized!
