Brighten up a plain white shirt with a quirky new pocket. Make an extra wide friendship bracelet and sew onto your shirt. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll end up with a one-of-a-kind piece that all your friends will be talking about! 49


sneaker brogues Start by covering the rubber sole of your shoes with tape. This is to prevent the ink from bleeding onto the sole. Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done, sketch your design with a pencil. Draw over your design with a permanent marker (we used black, but you can totally use any color!). 50





t e k c a j m i n e k d c a b e c la with

Take an old denim jacket and breathe new life into it! Use some scrap lace and carefully measure so that it fits the top back portion of the jacket. We cut a hole before sewing on the lace, but you can skip that step and just attach the lace over the denim part. 53


s t e l e c a r b BEADS AND BRAIDS

Take your favorite bead and insert a wire through it. Close both ends with a loop so that you can thread some strings through each loop. Braid each side until you reach the desired length and tie a knot to secure the ends.



Loop the first colored rubber band into a figure 8 and insert your thumb and index finger into each hole. Add the next two colors and bring the first band over your fingers so that they're on top of the next two. Add the next colored band and do the same thing you did with the first one. Continue till your desired length and use a C-clip to attach both ends.


Braid three strands of flat leather cord, then secure with crimp jewelry findings. For a raw finish, skip the jewelry findings and wear with a simple knot.


Slip assorted beads onto some rope and loop several times to fit your wrist.


String an assortment of beads in any design or pattern you prefer. Keep stringing, until the bracelet is long enough to wrap around your wrist three or more times. You can use elastic cord for easier wear.




Stretch the floral tape as you wrap the wire to activate its adhesive property. Cut shorter strips of floral tape instead of one long strip to make it easier for you to wrap the wire.

r e w o l f CROWNs Turn artificial flowers into a great hair accessory. Cut the stems of the flowers and leaves, leaving at least an inch of stem. Bend the leftover stems at a 90-degree angle. Measure the wire to size and bend it into a circle. Arrange the flowers on the wire and wrap the flowers onto the wire using floral tape.

wire & washi Gather some dried twigs and form them into a circle. Cover with jewelry wire, acrylic paint, and washi tape. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to add flowers on one side to make it extra pretty! 57

feather clips Take a plain snap barrette and glue on some feathers. Add a button accent to top it off!

threaded barrette Dot the end of colored thread with glue and carefully wrap your snap barrette with it. Attach some crocheted flowers and leaves, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re done! 59


S G N RI wire flower rings Use a thick marker as your ring shaper. Wrap the wire twice or thrice around the marker to form the base. Twist the wire ends to keep in place. In a spiral motion, keep twisting the remaining wire until it naturally starts to look like a rose. Cut loose ends of the wire so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t scratch yourself when you wear the ring.

pearl wire ring Start and end the ring just like the wire flower ones. Before twisting in a spiral motion, add a pearl or a gem.

button ring If you have buttons lying unused in your drawers, you can glue them onto some ring blanks for a quick DIY accessory. 60

s e c a l k c e n thread & rope Cut two pieces of rope in different lengths. Make sure the strands are long and wide enough to fit over your head. Wrap the rope with bright-colored thread. Make sure to glue thread in place.

keychain ring Arrange the keychain rings in whatever design or pattern youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like. Connect each touching side with wire. Attach necklace chain to the top corners.

pearls & ribbon Put a fresh spin on the classic pearl necklace. Sew pearls onto ribbon, alternating over and under to form a wave effect. 62

Try using rings you've been neglecting for a while!



style Instead of beads, attach a charm or small toy to earring hooks!


s g n i r r ea rainbow beads Slip some rainbow beads onto a piece of wire. Attach to earring hooks and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got instant colorful bling!

chandelier hoops Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need round nose pliers to attach the crystal beads to form the chain. How? Twist the end of the wire into a loop, slip a bead in, and close with another loop. Slip the next wire into your first one before closing the end. Repeat until your desired length and attach several chains to the chandelier findings for dazzlers you can rock on a night out with your girl friends.

silver & turquoise Use smaller seed beads and thinner wire for this pair! Instead of just one bead per wire, experiment with groups of twos and threes to create dimension. 65


safety pin jewelry earrings Slip some silver and gold beads onto the pin and attach to some earring hooks. You can use different colors too!

brooch Trim a fringe out of leftover leather. Roll up and glue into barrel findings. Make four to five tassels and slip into your safety pin for a fun brooch to add to your denim shirt.

necklace Attach a thick chain to a giant safety pin for a tough chick necklace. 66

ring Bend two safety pins and attach by wrapping wire around the ends that meet. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll create the illusion of a giant safety pin ring.



Use cookie cutters to create different shapes out of your clay! 68

y a l c & washi y r l e w je

Using a popsicle stick, mold air-dry clay into a half moon shape. When itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dry and hard enough, color it with acrylic paint or cover it with washi tape.

washi & twine bangles Polish your wooden bangles and make different patterns on them by wrapping them with washi tapes and bakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s twine! 69



belts braided leather Divide and cut the leather into 5 strips, leaving about 2 inches at the top, which you will wrap around the buckle. Braid the strands, starting with the leftmost strand, then weave through each strand on the right until you reach the end. Cover the ends with a piece of scrap leather to secure the braid.

stitched leather Simply cut a strip of leather measured to the width of your buckle. Add holes to size, and punch a few more holes at the end of the belt. Using embroidery floss, stitch a simple pattern on the grid that you punched out. 71


phone cases studded Add some edge to a basic phone case by gluing on some metal studs! Experiment with different sizes and combinations.

printed paper If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re easily bored with your phone case, this might work best for you. Invest in a clear case for your phone. Using the case as a template, cut out backing for your case. You can make as many as you want!

washi Have a stash of washi tape? Sketch out a design on paper and just stick, stick, stick! 72






Take four square towels and sew them to form a 2 x 2 square. Fold in half and turn it inside-out before sewing the sides together. Cut a hole on each side for your rope handles. 75

owl face bag charm Draw your design on leather or leatherette. Try to use different colors for each part of the owlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s face. Cut the shapes using a kraft knife on top of a cutting mat. Attach the pieces and layers using super adhesive glue, then punch a hole at the top. Attach the lobster clasp or key ring.

tassel bag charm Make a fringe by cutting thin strips on a rectangular sheet of leather, leaving about an inch of uncut space on top. Roll the sheet tightly, and punch a hole in the middle of the inch of space that holds the fringe together. Attach the lobster clasp or key ring. 76




You can add an essential oil to personalize the scent! 78

m l a b LIP Boil water in a pan and place a metal bowl on top. Melt 2 Tbsp grated Beeswax, 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil, 2 Tbsp Olive Oil, and a chunk of red lipstick all together. Once it liquifies, remove it from the heat (donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t over boil!). Use a barbecue or popsicle stick to mix all the ingredients together. When away from the heat, add 10 drops of essential oil. Pour the mixture into small containers, and let sit at room temperature for a few hours, or until it hardens and turns opaque. 80

Before you completely sew the sides closed, make sure that you open the zipper up a bit so that you can flip the pencil case over to the right side of the fabric! 90

All you need is a zipper (around 8 inches long), sturdy fabric like canvas, a needle, and some thread. Cut the fabric, fold it in half inside-out, and trim it into a trapezoid shape. The top of the trapezoid should be as long as the length of the zipper. Using top stitch or back stitch, sew the zipper onto the fabric, then sew the sides. Pinch the bottom corners of the pencil case and sew a line across the fabric, forming a triangle on each corner (see template). Flip the case over to the right side.
