DIY Style

We all like to look good, right? Don't get me wrong, I L-O-V-E shopping, but there are so many great things about customizing your clothes that you just can't get from a store-bought garment. Today, I'd like to share some great DIYs that I've been wanting to try on my own wardrobe.
First is this "Fat Quarter" infinity scarf by Jessica at Sew Homegrown. I have so many fat quarters in my fabric stash that would make a perfect infinity scarf, and this one is warm and cozy. I hope I can get around to making one before the cold weather goes away! You can make one too... there is a full tutorial here.
Next, LifeAnnStyle will show you (and me!) how to make these pretty boho braided bracelets. They look very simple, and I am in love with wrap bracelets right now. Check it out here.
Do you have a cardigan lying around that is cute, but you never wear it because it seems too plain? I know I have a few. Look what Anna from In Honor of Design did to spruce up her unworn cardis! I love the heart patch pocket! See her other easy DIYs here.
I hope you have a few minutes to spare because once I show you this next project, you're gonna want to head over to Madeline's blog, Uber Chic for Cheap and check out all of her other fabulous style DIYs. Here is just one of her many projects that I can't wait to try. Colorblock tees! What?! It's no secret that colorblocking is a style staple that is sticking around for awhile, and this is the perfect way to incorporate it into your wardrobe (for cheap!).

I can't decide which of these lovely style DIYs I want to try first! I'll keep you updated and share if and when I do take on one of these fairly simple projects.
