Heart Sweatshirt DIY

Heart Sweatshirt DIY

Today I’m going to show my latest project!

I’ve been thinking on making it for a while now and when I went to my parents I started to make it!
I told myself to leave it to Christmas but I just couldn’t resist. It’s a super fast project to make and I didn’t feel like having too much trouble so there are a few mistakes in it. I followed this tutorial – UPDATE: the link was broken but I found a similar tutorial here.

It’s a super cute sweatshirt to wear! And a bonus point for being so warm when I’m feeling cold 🙂 As a beginner sewer this was super straightforward to sew.

2018 Update: It’s 2018, 7 years have passed and this sweatshirt is still being used all the time! I mostly wear it at home on cold days.

Kai no Kuchi – Coin wallet made of yogurt lid and old shirt


Yesterday I spent most of my afternoon (with some breaks and if you’re a fast hand sewer you’ll finish this in no time) doing this:


Really like it, it’s definately not perfect, stitches can be seen, it’s not exactly very well aligned but I like it 🙂 I followed this tutorial and it’s a perfect way to not spending any money doing crafts, my fabric was an old shirt sleeve of my brother’s (when he was 6, amazing how little fabric this uses) and the idea of using a yogurt lid to achieve this effect is genius.

I love the result and think it’s a great way to also use up some scraps if you don’t have any shirts lying around. One thing I’d change up in the tutorial would be to quickly pass through the plastic a flame so it doesn’t get pointy bits that could hurt you.

Book Nerd – Bleach Dyeing – Recycle an old t-shirt!

Combining my love for reading and for easy diy projects, I dyed an old t-shirt that I rarely used with bleach. Statement t-shirts are kinda of cool and this was the final result: I saw many of these projects around the internet but only now […]
