As an A level fashion student, my advise would be just to go along to your local fabric store and experience the fabrics in person. Feel them, see how they drape, ask the shopkeepers what they think and then get some samples to take back to your textile teacher.
I'd love to paint my furniture, but I'm not sure it's possible, or if it would look shabby chic! Its modern no handles style glossy furniture from ikea. :(
What are her hobbies or interests? :)
We have two auntie that come to us every year for Christmas. I love them but I never see them, so I don't know much about their interests or hobbies. I usually buy them gift sets from Boots, but it feels like I've made no effort so this year I was thinking about making them a hamper each filled with homemade things.
Does anyone have ideas what I could fill them with? I was thinking something along the lines of biscuits, lip balms, hand creams etc.
I am completely obsessed with American Horror Story: Assylum. I can't wait for tonight!
I would accessorize it with a chunky wooden necklace or bracelet.
Thankyou everyone for your suggestions! I love the idea of making a quilt, I just need to find the time to do it! I might try it out over the christmas holidays. I also LOVE the ikea dresser upcycling, it looks amazing!
On New Years Day I set myself the goal of 300 followers on my blog, which I'm well on my way to completing! My more serious goal is to become more independent to ready myself for university life.
I'm seventeen and I've recently started to feel like a want to make something cosy out of my bedroom. It's pretty small, and I have that smooth, wood ikea furniture that seems to dislike my shabby chic style so very much.
Does anyone have any crafty ideas I could use to save myself some money on redecoration? I also have huge issues with storage of my ever-growing wardrobe.
Here's a tumblr where I've been pulling together styles I love.
Here's my auntie Chihuahua!
I love your recent post on free printables!
I'd love if you could check out my blog and let me know what you think.
I'm looking into studying either photography or costume design and university next year. I just want a job I love.
I'd love to follow you but you need a follow button, here's mine!
I did a photoshoot a while ago, and the photographer suggested I check out modelmayhem.
This is my blog.
I'm currently having a little giveaway to celebrate 100 followers!
I blog about things I've found that give me inspiration, my fashion DIY's, and outfits. I generally blog once every 2-3 days.
I find an effective way of gaining followers is to comment on other peoples blogs.
Show you've read the whole post, and give your (positive) opinions! :)

I just opened my etsy store today, but I'm not getting my hopes up.
I don't tend to participate in swaps, but a HP one sounds pretty amazing!
I'd love it if someone could let me know when details are confirmed!
There is a new magazine out called Mollie Makes (or something similar) which I am in love with! It was about £5, but it was well worth it.
I prefer etsy as a website. It seems more popular.
Thanks for sharing the links guys :D
I'll definitely check out stumbleupon.
And I know, I meant her character Chelsea :)
When I was a little younger I used to watch 'That's so Raven!' on Disney Channel. If anyone doesn't know it, she made almost all of her own clothing.
I thought to myself, 'When I'm her age I want to be able to say 'I made it myself' about a lot of my clothes.'
So does anyone have any offsite, or onsite tutorials for clothes they love?
Or even projects that you think would be easily recreateable?
Here's a few I want to try out:
