Links of the Week – DIY and Otherwise 10.11 – 10.17.10

In DIY, Links of the Week on October 18, 2010 by Naoko Takano

Though I’ve been in Paris (Ah, Paris!) most of this week, I’ve still been surfing the net.  (Not even Paris can keep me from that!)  Here are some DIY- and fashion-related stuff I’ve noticed around the past week…and a couple other links that caught my eye.

*…love, Maegan shows how to transform an old jersey skirt into a scarf/belt/hair-tie.  I just love multifunctionality!

*Got a lot of old books laying around your house?  Flavorwire has some great ideas for what to do with old tomes – rather than having them clog up your bookshelves.

*iartistlondon sells DIY kits for famous art pieces – like that crystal-embellished Damien Hirst skull.  (Though 8,601 crystals seem like an awful lot to have to affix oneself!)

*H&M launched a dress that costs $4.95.  $4.95.  Less than a Value Meal at McDonald’s.  Though the article doesn’t truly quote any H&M sources, whether the company is encouraging disposable fashion with these extremely low prices is definitely food for thought.

*DIY Junk Food??!!  You had me at HELLO!  Videos on make-it-yourself kale chips and Twinkies.  Um, awesome!!  (And I luuuurv making kale chips – and more importantly, Lil Tot lurvs eating them!! As do I.)

*Through Outsapop.com I’ve just discovered the blog Between the Lines.  Beautiful photography and DIY tutorials for simple, useful things.  LOVE!

*Twin Rabbits in Cups had both me and my 5-year-old transfixed though multiple viewings.  I love when their nose woffle in sync.  Soooooooooooo cute!  *squeeee*

  2. HOLY CUTENESS with the rabbits. I need one. I cannot have one, but I NEED ONE. Or two, in fact. Because it wouldn't be fun to watch one nose woffling. Okay, it would, but we need to see two at a time!
