DIY Lace trim shorts

  I used this method to turn some super short Hollister shorts [I got on sale a while back] into somewhat longer, trendier shorts :)
Difficulty: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
You'll need:
  • Shorts (old ones, new ones, thrifted ones)
  • about 2 yards of lace trim (check the trim/notions section of your local fabric store)
  • fabric glue or fabric glue sticks & glue gun or needle & thread
Here are the fabric hot glue sticks I got from JOANN.
Cut the lace trim to the size of the area of the shorts you are covering + 1 inch. I suggest starting with the side of the leg openings. Fold the lace trim under 1/3 of an inch and glue or sew that down.
Little by little, tack down the top of the trim , press down, and let dry.
Once you get close to the end, leave about an inch to turn under the lace and glue that down .
These are what the sides should look like!
Done! :)

DIY Nautical Brooch: A Modcloth Knockoff

 Don't you just love brooches? I love the "Anchors Always Pin" from Mod Cloth.
Beautiful, right? Well, let's make it.

Difficulty: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

  • sheet of stiff navy felt
  • white & red embroidery floss
  • embroidery needle 
  • pin back to make it a brooch
  • E6000 glue or hot glue
  • nautical charms/buttons/ribbon 
  • Cut out two pieces of stiff felt similar to this shape, whatever size you would like. Put the second one aside until the very end.
    Use a washable writing utensil to draw a small circle with a line. (See picture above)
    Thread your needle with the white thread and using the lines as a guide, start embroidering!
    Use small, overlapped stitches. Turn on the TV or radio so you don't drive yourself nuts.
    Add a small horizontal line like the picture above. It should look kind of like the female symbol.
    Trace the two curvy lines of the bottom of the anchor to your felt. Embroider over those as well.
    Almost done!
    Add the two pointed arrow tips.
     Optional: Use the LAZY DAISY STITCH in red to copy the rope detail.
    Add whatever charms or decorations you like with glue.
    Squeeze some glue all over the back of the pin and line up the other felt shape you set aside earlier.
    This will hide the messy work in the back. Now you have a flat surface to glue your pin back too!
    YAY for handmade knockoffs!
    Instead of a pin, you could glue it to a lamp for a nautical themed room!
