31  CLOTHING / Shoes: Completed Projects / Japanese Princess Style Short Fur Boots Detail Tutorial on: June 12, 2011 10:39:21 AM
My post entry link: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/fashion/re-construction-japanese-princess-style-short-fur-boots

This is a re-design project that can transform your old or broken boots into a totally girly princess style furry one in less than 30 minutes. No only you can save your favorite boots from now on, you are also giving your old boot a fresh new look and complete make over. I just could not believe how good my old boots look after the transformation.







The design idea came from a product of my favorite brand Liz Lisa.  Ive been wanting to buy it since I saw the picture a couple months ago. Due to the geographic and price reason, I can only dream about having it. Over 300 dollars for a pair of boots is way to high for my price range so making one myself seems like a more affordable options.

Great for dressing up any casual outfit or wear with elegant evening or ballroom gowns. These accessories are easy to make, they only require some simple jewelry making tools and materials and about 15 minutes of your time. If thats the cost for being fabulous, sign me up!

My Post Entry Link: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/accessories/diy-bow-phone-charms-key-chains

Key chains and phone charms are my all time favorite accessories besides necklaces and bracelets. I am incorporating some other lovely features into the designs such as ribbon bows, pearls and adorable charms. Hopefully these designs can inspire you in some way.

Since I started this blog, I have received a lot of wonderful comments about my designs. Lot of my friends love it and want to purchase the items, so  I decided to start an Etsy store once I move down to Seattle. Thats why I made lots of different design phone charms and key chains getting ready for my online store opening next month.

35  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Bow Shape Pearl Necklace Tutorial on: May 01, 2011 07:42:41 AM
This is another simple design I created with the same materials. I made this classy bow shape pearl necklace in less than 15 minutes. The cost is very minimum ( less than 5 USD ) but the result looks absolutely gorgeous.



The bow is really the focal point of the design and it is a bit more complicated to make. It took me a couple tries to finally get the desire shape and figure out how to connect the parts together is tricky. Other than that, the whole tutorial is an easy level project.

Using the pre-cut jewelry wire to hold the tiny white glass pearls, bend the wire into a oval shape as we insert the pearls and finally make a loop at the end to keep them in place. Duplicate the process one more time and these parts will become the two loops of my bow pendant. Use the wire to thread one big pearl in the bottom tiny ones above it then close it with the loop, again, make two of these so we can use them as the tails for our bow pendant.

Since I made all four parts of the bow separately, I choose to use a very simple method to connect them together- jump ring. A medium size silver jump ring will do the job because each part has loops at the end.

The rest of the necklace is simple using the same wire pearl techniques just like how I made the bracelet earlier. Here is the tutorial link for the earlier post: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/accessories/wired-pearl-bracelet-tutorial

My Post Entry Link: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/accessories/wired-pearl-bracelet-tutorial

I am so excited to share this tutorial with you because I always love the elegant look of pearl jewelries and I just cannot believe how easy it is to do it yourself. I am making earrings, bracelet and necklace with only pearls and wires. It takes about 5-10 minutes for each project and is extremely cost effective.



Wiring is a super simple technique and once you learn it, you can make so many types of accessories involving pearls & regular beads.















37  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Hello Kitty Cell Phone Decoden on: April 11, 2011 06:08:29 PM
my post entry link: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/accessories/bow-shape-pearl-necklace-tutorial

Finally I am ready to do a tutorial on how to glam up my lovely pink cell phone. The purchases I did recently on Etsy has really gave me a lot of inspiration for this project. DIY my cell phone allow me to express my design and save money because purchasing a bling up case by others can be extremely expensive. If your phone is unusual like mine, finding a blinged case is super difficult as well.



I purchased a lot of substitute things like gems, rhinestones and lace in some local craft stores in Florida but the quality and variety is not really my top choice. Since I discover the Etsy website, I am been able to purchase a lot of high quality decoden parts which allow me and achieve my desire design.









38  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Fabric Bow Tutorial on: April 04, 2011 07:57:46 PM
My Post Entry Link: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/fashion/fabric-bow-tutorial

Bows are my all time favorite decoration pieces since I started following the Japanese 109 style fashion. Over the years I kinda develop my own way of making bows. It might not be the right way but it work and the bows look just as cute. The process is super simple and only minimum sewing is required.



All you need to make this type of bow is a small piece of fabric and some threads and needles. Almost any kind of fabric will work for this project, the more sturdy and thicker fabric can make the bow shape firmer and stand on its own. Thinner fabric might need a little support inside like interfacing to maintain the perfect shape.

This is a easy level project that can be done with or without a sewing machine. Hand sewing result will look as good as the machine sew ones mainly because the seems will be hidden anyway inside our project.

I am using the left over fabric form my black sway skirt re-modification. This material is not stretchy and just thick enough but not too stiff which is a perfect fit for my bow project. I didnt need interfacing because the material is strong enough to form a gorgeous looking bow on its own. I made 7 bows from my left over portion fabric. I can wear them separately in different occasion or pin or sew them onto my re-design black sway mini skirt.

The bow essence give the already gorgeous looking skirt a different feeling. After adding the bows on the cute re-design skirt, it almost look like the costume from the fairy tale story. Bows are great decoration for fashion especially once you find out my way of making these affordable & fashionable bows in just a couple of minutes.















39  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General / Silicone Whipped Cream Deco-den on: April 04, 2011 07:49:46 PM
My Post Entry Link: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/accessories/silicone-whipped-cream-deco-den-tutorial

Easy & simple kawaii looking whipped cream decoration using minimum material. These gorgeous soft serve ice-cream look-a-like accessories  are getting really popular in Japan and Asian countries. This tutorials goal is to teach everyone how to do it yourself at home with lowest cost possible.



When i say EASY, I mean EASY. No mixing , no mess, almost as easy as buying the can and squeeze it out. Of course mine is using silicone to replace the real eatable cream and icing.

Main ingredients youll need is 100% silicone. The one I purchased is from Home Depot, Im sure other hardware stores and big chained supermarket sells the similar product too. Silicone is use for bathroom seal purposes mainly, prices for a regular tube is less than $5 USD. I choose Dap Kwik Seal Plus premium kitchen & bath adhesive sealant because it says brighter white and high gloss finish on the package so it is perfect for this task.

Alright, back to my silicone whipped cream deco-den project, lets show you the basics skills and techniques so you can go on and try it as well. Doing it this way is way cheaper than purchasing the Japanese whipped cream decorating tubes (usually cost $12-20/per tube on Etsy). Total cost for this tutorial is about $6 USD for the silicone and icing tip. Other decorating pieces like buttons, plastic parts, beads, chains, ribbons, lace trims, bows and rhinestones are available on Etsy and local craft store as well for very affordable prices.























40  BATH AND BEAUTY / Bath and Beauty: Completed Projects / Butterfly Nail Design Tutorial Link on: April 04, 2011 07:36:44 PM
My Post Entry Link: http://www.diyfashiondiva.com/nail-art/butterfly-nail-design-tutorial

This is another simple but time saving nail creation using my favorite nail stamping set. The design idea is simple but the result is professional, elegant and definitely hard to achieve with just free hand drawing.



It took me only 30 minutes to finish this set of design. Nail stamping set is defiantly encouraged for this tutorial. Other basic supplies I will need include nail polish , base coat, top coat, black and white Konad special nail polish, nail plate # 57, 59 & 21.

Using a very light pink color nail polish as background. This will give the whole set a very elegant look and definitely a girly touch. I want this design to have some contrast so I choose both black and white as my stamping images color.
