DIY | Baby Moccasin Booties

Its a girl!

My cousin is having a baby girl, and I seriously can’t wait to spoil her. This past weekend was her baby shower and auntie-to-be got her some dope baby gear (Did you know they have baby wipes heaters now? blew my mind). Naturally I didn’t stop there I had to make her something a little less ordinary, gold and adorable. So I made her these….

GOLD BABY MOCCASSIN BOOTIES

This is my cuuuutest DIY, yet.

This DIY is very easy, and you can hand sew.

Here is what you will need:

Baby Booties Pattern

12″ x 12″ Pleather Fabric

Leather Laces

Thread

Needle

Rotary Hole Puncher

Scissors

 Other tools:

E-600 Glue

Pen or Marker

Baby Moccasin Pattern

I had to hand draw my own pattern, but you don’t! You can print this pattern and use for your baby booties. The pattern piece is for a size 1 bootie. Just print larger for larger sizes!

Start by cutting the bootie pattern and trace it twice on the back side of your fabric (make sure to flip over the sole piece for the right side bootie).

Now cut your pieces, and set the extra fabric aside.

Using the rotary hole puncher, cut the marked circles on the heel piece and cut the two lines on the front piece.

Sew the heel piece with the sole piece (leather facing in).

Use binder clips or clothespins to hold the fabric together if needed. Make sure to position the piece so it is even. Sew 1/8″ from edge to secure.

Now sew the front piece on to the sole piece, over lapping into the heel piece at each end.

Now flip your bootie inside out, and lace them up!

You can leave them as is, or do as I did and make them Moccasin Baby Booties.

Using extra fabric cut out two 1″ x 2″ pieces, then cut 1″ slices across to create fringe for that moccasin look. Now simply glue the pieces (fringe down) across the front part of your booties.

Drunk or Sober?

It’s Thursday, and we are all itching for the weekend.

Your girl has been hustling this week! I am 7 weeks into my event planning certification course and have honestly loved every minute. This course is an example how I would have liked my college courses to have been taught, with real life skills not just memorizing terms! My classmates and I have learned about contracts, taxes, food handling licenses, and state/city permits. On top of all the fun aesthetic details of what makes a great party (what I am good at).  We already hosted our first wedding too!

Now add a full-time job….AY! Naturally, I’ve made time to make some crafts, even though I should actually be going to the gym. Oh well, that’s why I go out on the weekends and dance! Needless to say I think I deserve a drank this weekend, but not before sharing my young professional simple #OOTD.

DIY | MOD PENDANT LIGHT

HI!

Its been two weeks since I posted anything… sorry. Austin City Limits happened and I managed to attend both weekends. Because I’ve evolved into this festival junkie, but OH MY GAWD! It was bananas! I have just recently re-adjusted my sleeping pattern and finally finished this, sigh….

DIY | MOD DIAMOND PENDANT LIGHT

DSC_01881

Here’s what you will need:

Shelve bracket

3-Way Socket w/ Turn Knob

Light fixture cord

Lightbulb

2- 3/8 in Round hardwood dowel

Metallic Silver spray paint

Glue (I used Gorrilla Glue, but hot glue will also do the job)

DSC_0091Other tools:

Power drill

Screwdriver

Hand saw

Start by cutting the hardwood dowel using a hand saw into the following sizes:12- 6inch | 6- 9inch. Create a hexagon using 6 of the 6 inch sticks, and glue them together.

This next step is just like playing with Legos. Take the top of the 3-Way Socket and the 6- 9inch sticks, glue each stick at every corner of your hexagon first, then to the top of the socket.

Pull the light fixture cord through the top hole of the 3- Way Socket. Then…

Separate the metal ends of the light fixture cord, take the bottom of the 3-Way Socket and unscrew the (two) screws on each end. Wrap each metal end to each screw and tighten it with the screwdriver.

Like dis…

Then simply attach the two 3-Way socket top/bottom together, and pull the light fixture cord back.

You will now need to glue the other 6- 6inch sticks together to make the bottom point of the diamond…(Shine bright like a diamond…RIRI stuck in my head!). Again glue each stick to each corner of the hexagon and then together to make the point.

Now spray paint the crap out of it, and make a little dance because your almost done!

DSC_0155

Attach the bracket to your wall with a power drill or screwdriver, add a light bulb and wrap the cord in/out of the bracket and let it hang! You now have a minimalist, chic pendant light that will bring more light into your home.
