DIY Links of the Week 11.8 – 11.21.10

In DIY, Links of the Week on November 23, 2010 by Naoko Takano

Combining 2 weeks into one since I got so busy since the second week of November.

Annette featured my Lace Top to Lace Vest tutorial in her 25+ Free Vest Patterns on Craft Stew.  She’s included a whole bunch of really great vest patterns and projects that I can’t wait to try!

Ever wanted to make a Hermes-style clear purse? Scottish Toile shares her how-to here.

Cupcakes and Cashmere posted a Semi DIY for those Yves St. Laurent fringe pumps that are making the rounds on teh interwebs. Instead of spending the $69.95 on the Steve Madden pumps, though – you can find the same version for $39 from Newport-News or $32.90 from Alloy.  Or you can even take a plainer velvet or suede pump and add Bondo to the heels to sculpt them just like the originals, like christeric did.

My Vintage Secret shows you how to make your own pair of DIY shearling boots. Just like the Burberry Fall 2010 version:-)

Bye Bye Soccer Mom shows off her studded pant cuffs DIY – done so simply with iron-on grommets, they look edgy and fabulous!

Suzannah at Adventures in Dressmaking shares her tutorial for making a leaf-embellished cardigan.  Her finished piece looks perfect enough to be sold at Anthropologie!
