Wardrobe renewal

Yup, probably it's the effect the sunny days gives me who's talking but I feel inspired for starting a wardrobe renewal!
I'm spending my free time browsing the net to find new projects and inspiration and I found loads of stuff! There are so much nice revamping projects that I don't even know from where I'd start.
Maybe, to organize my work, I'd take a photo of each article of my closet that I want to customize and then associate the pic to the tutorial I want to use.. hum.. does it sound insane? I know that I'm forgetful and I can have the most brilliant ideas and then forget them the following second and make something terrible at the end D: So maybe this'd be a solution.
Anyway, this all started with this stupid, boring hoodie D:<

I researched for a bit to find inspiration cause I didn't know what to make of it and here is what I found.. I'd like to mix all of them.. I'm not sure about the cap sleeves though, I'd like 3/4 sleeves better.. hum..

And then this bag I received yesterday.. the leather is.. well, not the best quality, so I won't feel guilty if I make some cutting. I'd like to turn this:

into this:

Mission impossible?! XD Yes, probably, but I still want to try, at worst I'll have some new leather scraps XD

Tutorials & swap - Blue jeans babe

This swap was very interesting, it gave me few ideas and I'd like to share..

Swap-bot swap: Blue Jeans Babe
I swap with Swap-bot!

"Do you do denim? I do! I like to wear it and then recycle it. For this swap we will share our denim re-do ideas in a Puzzle Letter! Puzzle Letters are easy to make. You write your letter, then cut it up like a puzzle. Slip the pieces into a ziplock baggie, put them in an envie with your swap card and send."

The puzzle letter I received..

..and the one I sent.

So, apart from the fact that it has been damn hard to put together all the pieces of the letter XD , I'd not decipher the first two links, but the other two bring me to a couple of nice craft:

-Click on the piccus to get the tutorial-

Aaaaand here you go the tutorials I put in the letter:

DIY Borsetta libellula

Ho fatto questa borsetta per uno swap mesi fa e sono rimasta cosi contenta del risultato (è stato difficile metterla in una busta e vederla partire..) che ho deciso di farne il mio primo tutorial.

Al di là di tutto questo è un ottimo modo per fare delle borsette con la chiusura senza impazzire per inserire la zip. E’ una tecnica piuttosto semplice e versatile, in fondo al post troverete altre cose che ho realizzato allo stesso modo.
Spero l’idea vi piaccia e che troverete utili le mie istruzioni. 

dragonfly puoch Collage
union-jack-flagYou can read the ENGLISH VERSION of this project here.

Vi serviranno:
ago e filo da ricamo in diversi colori
panno lenci
colla con glitter
Budget: quasi nullo
Tempo: 2h00


1- Disegnate il modello su un foglio di carta, dandogli la forma desiderata (dalla foto vedete che dovrà essere disegnato doppio, come se ci fosse uno specchio in cima) e ritagliatelo. Disegnate e tagliate una linea retta nel mezzo, lunga e larga abbastanza da farci stare la zip.
