How to Gather Fabric for Ruffles and Skirts



A couple of months ago I wanted to make a dress with a gathered skirt, and since I'm a super newbie to sewing I had to ask my grandma how could I create that pretty ruffled effect. Although I've since realized there are a ton of online tutorials and posts on how to do it, I had never, until that time, come across one.

This is basically the backstory why I made this short tutorial, I wish I had come across something like it, quick and easy to understand, without having to watch a 10-minute video.





What is your favorite thing to put ruffles on?

DIY Summer Hairstyle: Scarf French Braid



Thinking about festival season? Or just fresh beachy outfits in general? This hairstyle is the perfect combo to your summer outfits. It's easy enough to pull off, since it's basically just a french braid with an added scarf and works great for both curly and straight hair. Depending on your hair length, you might need a longer or shorter scarf, mine had a bit of excess length, so I was able to tie it at the end which ended up adding a more boho look to it.



Learn how to make it by watching the video below.

Hey everyone.
Even though it seems that I've been making a lot of bracelets recently, one theme that I wanted to do for a while was Bracelets for Men and never actually got around to making a tutorial. So when my friend Helder asked me if I could make him some super stylish accessories I thought it was the perfect opportunity.

If you are looking for gift ideas for guys, maybe for valentine's, father's day or even Christmas, I think these are perfect, they don't cost that much, take little time to make and you can personalize the color and style to match their personality. 

Of course, these are also perfect for girls to wear, no type of discrimination intended here ;) I also made an Infinity knot one for myself using red leather laces.

The supplies used in this project are from endlessleather.com, they kindly provided everything I needed to make these bracelets. I’ve used their leather cords in past projects, they are my favorite, the quality is really good, and the clasps are stainless steel, so they won't get damaged over time, which is great.

40 Amazing DIY Craft Ideas To Sell

A round-up of 40 DIY Craft ideas to sell on etsy or at craft fairs including Jewelry, Sewing Projects, Decor, Beauty Products, and Items for Kids  #diy #crafts #sell #etsy #ideas #curlymade

Recently I've been wonderingif I should reopen my Etsy store, for a while when I started the blog, I used to sell leather bracelets and ruffled headbands made with recycled coffee capsules. Unfortunately, I stopped adding listings to the shop since I now had a full-time job and wanted to focus my free time entirely on the blog. 

This got me thinking if I did reopen the store, what would I like to sell, what types of DIYs I think would be a good fit for Etsy or perhaps a craft fair and that's what inspired this round-up. 

I've selected 40 craft ideas that you can make and sell online or at a fair, they are divided into categories and the link to the original source of the photos and tutorial is below each one, enjoy!
