For Girl's Who Like Baseball

Hello Crafty Ladies and Gentleman.

I found the most incredible fabric for 7$ at a thrift store last week! And while it definitey had to become a little girl's dress for my etsy shop I just couldnt pass up the oppurtunity to make something for myself too!

It's a just a basic circle skirt with a tie closure. I'm wearing a black petticoat underneath it for maximum poofiness. There are great tutorials all over for it but it has one basic principal: Cut a circle.

Just had to share my newest project.

AND: I went thrift store shopping down in the states yesterday (So cheap, America is awesome - even if they still have pennies) and got sooo much fun stuff. Amazing baby boy refashions ahead. It's been a while since Wildeman got something new.

The Up Down Pompadour - Hair Tutorial

Hello and Welcome to my first hair tutorial!
A while ago (too long ago) I got a request for hair tutorials from Kay Brady. I loved the idea but was hesitant at first because long chick-mohawks aren't exactly something you see everyday. Then I realized that for most of the hair styles I do the mohawk is not a necessity.
So, let's get started shall we?

Pinspiraton: Sunburst Miniskirt

My Pinsiration:

Happy Summer Crafty Ladies and Gentlemen!

I have had my eye on this pin for at least a year now. I fell in love with it right away and knew that it would be so easy to do but couldn't quite bring myself to wear a mini-skirt until I had lost more of the baby weight (which is not something I'm happy about btw. I have to work on that. Miniskirts look great on big girls!) . And now this oh so easy, oh so cute refashion is mine!

I unfortunately don;t have a source for this as the pin clicks to through to a 404 but I pinned it to my very overdue Spring 2012/2013 board. 3 down, 16 to go.

Miley Cyrus, "We Can't Stop" Inspiration

Hello Crafty Craftersons

I think that Miley Cyrus may have won me over this week. I'm not sure why yet but I was equally disturbed and entertained by her latest video "We Can't Stop". Disturbed by the blatant over sexualisation of young girls (I just want to specify here that I am 23, therefore a "young girl" and I have nothing at all against healthy, personal, meaningful, expressions of our sexuality) and generally entertained by the song, art deco style of the video and giant teddy bear backpacks.

But most importantly of course by the fashion:

Miley Cyrus wore this super cute teddy in just a few short cuts from the video but I fell in love with it at first sight. Super comfy, sexy pajamas out of an awesome T? An awesome graphic T?!?

I was in heaven.
