Welcome back from Christmas. We sure hope you received everything you asked Santa for. In case you missed out on a fashionable gift you can still make something for yourself. Try creating these stylish shoes. They were created using dollies and Mod Podge. Now normally when you think of dollies an image of your grandmother or aunt may appear in your head, but don’t be so quick to dismiss this antique treasure. Dollies can serve as the perfect embellishment to add to some shoes. Take ordinary shoes to extraordinary shoes with this project. We discovered this project on the Fabric.com blog.

Do you ever stop to realize just how similar fashion color trends, and craft color trends tend to relate? The craft and fashion industries both draw inspiration from one another. Since fashion week is currently going on in NYC, I thought it made sense to create a paint color palette using this season’s 5 fall fashion trends as the inspiration. While you may not be quite yet ready to trade in your summer maxi dress, for a cable knit sweater dress, at least you can be in the know of what fall fashion trends will be in style this season. Make sure you resist the very trendy items, and stay with these 5 fashion must have pieces. If you do that, you will definitely be on trend for the fall. The 5 must have trends for fall 2011 are, lace, polka dots, jade green, tartan, and chunky sweaters.
We created this color palette using FolkArt Acrylic colors, #961 Turquoise, #414 Cardinal Red, # 419 Teddy Bear Tan, and #479 Pure Black.
So I am well aware that in certain parts of the country the weather outside is beginning to get a little cooler, however down here in Georgia, where Plaid is located, it is still quite hot outside. With that in mind I truly believe one can never have enough tank tops, to help keep them cool. I stumbled across this very interesting way to create trendy decorative tops from t-shirts. DIY fashion is such a hot trend right now, and everyone wants to unleash their inner Project Runway, and design their own clothes. Use this example from Annie Spandex, and learn how to created this look or something similar for yourself. She used some easy to find items and FolkArt paint to create these looks.
