DIY Mania!!

A few weeks ago I decided I was going to give myself a month-long no shopping challenge. Two and a half weeks later and several DIY projects later, I'm still going strong. Here are a my latest creations.

I've had this poppy printed fabric for years and haven't come up with the right way to use it, until one of my favorite trends came along, printed shorts. I did my best to scallop the hem (way harder than it looks) and I finished the top with simple grosgrain. So comfy and sweet, I love them!

I found this next DIY via Pinterest (follow me!), I'm quickly discovering it's an AMAZING source for project ideas. I made this simple covered tray out of a cookie that was damaged anyway and some spare fabric, you may recognize the fabric from an old project I took on.

I also found the next DIY on Pinterest. I made this cute leather ottoman out of sample leather skins we had floating around the office.

The final DIY of the day, chain and rhinestone bracelets, I found on Everything Fabulous. My friend Katie and I each made two and gave the second to each other. Total cost for four bracelets was about $30 and took only about an hour to make two.
