Always on the lookout for new ideas…I saw this shirt on instagram and couldn’t locate stockists anywhere.  So I’ve decided to make this my next DIY project.

Oh and ignore the creepy face haha…for identify protection of the original poster…I took the liberty of drawing this alternate face 🙂

To buy:

  • One oversized plain white tee
  • Fabric paint in blue and white and black..any maybe red for contrast
  • Paint setting textile for frabic
  • Paint brushes

Will update on the results asap!!

 

 

It’s been a while…DIY & Sustainable Choices

Of late, I have actually been busy with a whole range of DIY projects, that blogging has taken a back seat.

I have been so focused on creating, recycled, sustainable clothing options, I haven’t had time for much else. I found a whole range of Indonesian Batik that my mother had saved for…well I am not sure what she was saving 100 meters of fabric for :), but I decided to put it to use and created a range of clothing and notebooks for myself….perhaps I might branch out and make for friends and family!batik2batik

Carrying on with my endeavour to support slavery.org through the culling of my wardrobe, selling and generating funds to donate, I have still a long way from my ‘donation’ goal. However, researching through the net I stumbled across some sites, blogs and pages that have inspired me to plight on.

Ekoluv, a conscious, sustainable and compassionate site, focusing on drawing awareness and encouraging sustainable lifestyles is doing some great things that I hope to aspire to and achieve great things like this one day.

Also a local business on the Gold Coast called, Cool People Live Here, have a great concept where you donate furniture where they recycle and turn into new pieces of art to appreciate and of course buy…hence minimising everyone’s waste and consumption.

I am always on the lookout for business, sites and ideas like this to inspire me and my mind has been busily ticking with concepts of my own that I hope to craft, develop and evolve into reality.
