Recycle clothes: B&N Tee

Upcycle textiles and recycle clothes with BellaV’s step by step tutorials

I am recycling enthusiast and I really enjoy finding new uses for old items. But this does not only apply to your regular plastic bottles or cans. Oh no, I recycle clothes, fabric, yarn…

On the one hand, there is the satisfaction of knowing that I am doing my part to keep items out of the landfill. Then there is the pleasure of allowing myself to be creative while producing a finished piece that looks new and cost little to no money at all!

This t-shirt is the perfect example of how you can recycle clothes to create your own DIY fashion with old or thrift-store finds.

Here is how I did it.

Supplies

Instructions: how to recycle clothes

recycle clothes, diy fashion, upcycling clothes, refashioning clothes, step by step sewing tutorial

1. First, measure how wide and long you want the front of the t-shirt to be, divide by two and cut two equal rectangles of the white jersey fabric.

2. Then, measure how low you’d like the V neckline and fold each front half accordingly. Pin in place and sew.

3. When you are done sewing each side of the V-neck, cut the extra fabric, making sure to leave about 1/2 inch of fabric left.

Don’t worry about finishing the seams, the nice thing about this type of fabric is that it doesn’t unravel.

4. Now you need to cut the armholes. Fold the shirt in half and cut both armholes together to ensure symmetry. I used a tank-top as a guide.

5. Measure the length of the armholes and cut two strips of fabric. Pin each strip to each armhole and sew.

6. Fold the strip over the armhole, pin in place, and sew.

You will need to repeat these two steps to finish the back pieces of the shirt.

7. Now you are ready to cut the top back pieces. First, measure how long and wide you need your back pieces and cut two equal rectangles.

Use the front of the t-shirt as a guide to shape the armholes.

8. Fold the middle part of each back half twice over itself, pin in place and sew.

recycle clothes, diy fashion, upcycling clothes, refashioning clothes, step by step sewing tutorial

I used the bottom part of and old white t-shirt for the top back parts so I didn’t have to finish the top seam of the back.

You may have to fold the top part of each half piece to create a seam. Make sure it’s wide enough to fit the ribbon.

Repeat steps 5 and 6 to finish the armholes.

recycle clothes, diy fashion, upcycling clothes, refashioning clothes, step by step sewing tutorial

9. Measure the width of your back halves together and how long you need the back to match the front piece, and cut a rectangle of the print fabric.

Make sure to leave a couple of inches for seams.

10. Pin the print rectangle to both back halves and sew.

11. Pin the front half of the shirt to the back and sew both seams.

12. Measure how long you want your final t-shirt to be, double the number, and cut two rectangles: one for the front, and one for the back.

Make sure to leave some fabric to allow for seams.

13. Pin both rectangles together and sew. You will have a circle of fabric that should be as wide as the front and back pieces of the shirt held together.

14. Pin the waist band to the bottom of the shirt and sew in place. Then, fold over itself, pin in place and sew.

recycle clothes, diy fashion, upcycling clothes, refashioning clothes, step by step sewing tutorial

15. To finish the shirt, make three pleats on each front top halves and pin in place.

recycle clothes, diy fashion, upcycling clothes, refashioning clothes, step by step sewing tutorial

16. Then, cut two pieces of black ribbon. Fold each end twice over itself, pin to each front halves and sew in place.

17. All you need to do now is to pass the ribbon through the back halves. You can use a safety pin.

18. Finally, cut each ribbon diagonally to prevent fraying, and you are all done!

Rock the boat: cheap home decor

diy cheap home decor does not have to look cheap!

I love making home decor and wall decor items because they are usually super quick and easy!

This cheap home decor item is the perfect weekend project for those cold, rainy days were you can’t go outside.

If you want to know how you can make your own, keep on reading!

cheap home decor, diy wall decor, mod pdge tutorial

Supplies

cheap home decor, diy wall decor, mod pdge tutorial
  • A picture that you don’t like anymore
  • A picture that you do like
  • Paint in whatever colors you like
  • A sponge brush
  • Mod podge
  • A brush

Instructions

cheap home decor, diy wall decor, mod pdge tutorial

1. First, get your base ready. The old picture that I chose to replace was a piece of paper that had been glued to a wood plank, so it was very easy to peel off with a little bit of hot water. You may choose to sand yours, or paint on top using white paint as a primer.

While you wait for the wood plank to get dry (if you had to use hot water to prep it), get your new picture ready.

cheap home decor, diy wall decor, mod pdge tutorial

2. I chose a picture from an old calendar, so I had to cut the edges. You may be able to skip this step if your picture does not have any uneven edges to get rid of.

cheap home decor, diy wall decor, mod pdge tutorial

3. My picture was narrower than the wood base; I chose that on purpose because I wanted to have a pop of color rather than just the picture.

To make sure the picture would be centered, I measured the difference between the picture and the wood base, and divided it by two so that each left and right edge would be symmetrical.

Then, I painted each side with white paint first, and then with cobalt blue.

If your picture measures the same as your base, you may be able to skip this step.

4. Last, cover your base with mod podge using a sponge brush. Lay your picture on the center of your base, and press firmly using a wiping motion from the center of the picture towards the edges. Doing this will prevent air bubbles.

Wait until it dries, and you are all done!

I hope you like my tutorial. Leave a comment and let me know how your projects turn out!

Enjoy 🙂

Create unique home decor items with a few simple wine bottle crafts and ideas.

This diy tutorial is so easy and fast, it can be done in a day!

Now you can recycle and upcycle your empty wine bottles with a few simple steps and a couple of arts and crafts supplies.

Keep on reading if you want to know how you can make your own home decor items or homemade gifts and also recycle some glass bottles 🙂

Supplies

wine bottle crafts, diy wine bottle, recycle glass bottles
  • An empty wine bottle
  • Gold spray paint
  • Mod Podge (or some type of glue)
  • Glitter
  • A sponge applicator or a brush
  • A gold ribbon or trim (optional)

Directions

wine bottle crafts, diy wine bottle, recycle glass bottles

1 .First, make sure that your wine bottle is clean and dry. Spray the empty wine bottle with the gold spray paint and let dry (it dries really fast!).

2. Then, you are going to lay some old newspapers on your work area and start applying the mod podge to the bottom of the wine bottle. I used a sponge applicator, but you can also use a brush.

3. Now, sprinkle the gold glitter all over the glue. When you are done, shake the bottle to get rid of the extra glitter that did not adhere to the bottle.

You will have A LOT of fall out! Make sure to put it back in your glitter container using the newspaper as an improvised funnel.

4. You are almost done! That is one of the nice things about wine bottle crafts: you can completely transform a glass bottle in a few minutes!

If you want to, you can tie some ribbon or trim in a color palette that complements the gold, like I did.

And you are all done!

If you are wondering why my wine bottle has a hole it’s because it’s an incense burner. This is how it works: you will need to make a hole in the bottle for the smoke to come out.

This can be done quite easily with a special drill attachment for glass and ceramics; here are some instructions on how to drill glass.

Then, you need a key ring to hold the incense while you are burning it. Make sure the ring is big enough to be placed on top of the bottle when you are not using it.

Update your wardrobe with BellaV’s diy fashion tutorials

Refashion your clothes with this diy fashion tutorial and create your own individual style without spending a penny.

It’s been a while since I made my lovely heart t-shirt, so I decided to create a new t-shirt.

Upcycling clothes is not only fun, but also much easier than it looks like. This is how I made my new favorite t-shirt.

Supplies

This is what you need to make this shirt:

  • An old t-shirt that you don’t like/wear any more
  • Scrap fabric (jersey is best)
  • A fabric pencil
  • Thread
  • Sewing needle
  • Pins
  • Scissors
  • A measuring tape

1. First, cut off the sleeves and the neckline following the existing seams.

2. Then, cut the front of the t-shirt through the center.

diy fashion, step by step t-shirt tutorial, refashion clothes

3. Now, you are going to fold the t-shirt so that the front halves are exactly on top of each other. Measure where you want your neckline to hit your chest, and cut the top parts.

By overlapping the two front halves you ensure that your front parts have the same height.

diy fashion, step by step t-shirt tutorial, refashion clothes

4. Then, you are going to do the same lengthwise: measure how wide you would like your front left and right sides to be and cut the shirt lengthwise.

Once again, make sure that each front side is overlapped exactly one on top of the other to ensure that both left and right sides are symmetrical.

diy fashion, step by step t-shirt tutorial, refashion clothes

5. Measure where you would like the backline to hit your back, and cut.

This is easier to do if you fold the back in half. Cutting smaller seams is much easier than longer pieces of fabric!

6. Now you are ready to incorporate the second fabric into your shirt. Measure the gap between the front left and right sides, and cut a rectangle of the second fabric. Leave a couple of inches on each of the four sides for seams.

7. Sew the print rectangle to each front side of the shirt.

8. Measure each armpit lengthwise and cut a 1.5 – 2 inch strip of the solid color t-shirt fabric. Attach each strip to each armpit making sure to fold the strip over itself.

9. Cut the extra fabric left on the inside of each armpit.

10. Measure how tight and wide you’d like the waist to be, and cut a rectangle of the print fabric. I wanted a “baggy” look for my shirt, so I made the waist strip smaller than the actual measurement of the shirt. If you do this, you will have to gather the shirt seam before attaching the waist strip.

diy fashion, step by step t-shirt tutorial, refashion clothes

11. Then, do the same for both the front and back necklines. Measure how wide you’d like the front and back necklines to be, cut two rectangles of the print fabric and sew to each front and back.

diy fashion, step by step t-shirt tutorial, refashion clothes

12. Finally, measure how long and wide you’d like your straps to be. I opted for a tank-top style, but you may choose to add spaghetti straps, for example.

Once you have attached each strap, you are all done!

Enjoy! Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you like my step by step diy fashion tutorial 😀

Underwater: Drawings inspired by Yellena prints

drawings, zentangle inspired, flowre doodle



Some of the ideas that I get for my drawings start out as pure admiration for other artists. I am a member of the Phoenix Art Museum and I try to go regularly, both to enjoy art, and to get inspired. But I don’t seek inspiration in museums only. On the contrary, I often find myself being inspired by my surroundings and by things I come across online.

“Underwater” is one of those drawings. I had recently discovered a print artist on etsy, and I loved her aesthetics so much that I tried to recreate one of her prints.

To create this drawing I used a variety of drawing supplies: gel pens, metallic sharpies, watercolor pencils, Prismacolor pencils, and Pigma Micron pens by Sakura on sketch paper.

Inspiration

I found this print by Yellena on Etsy, and I fell in love with the style immediately. It reminds me of the prints made by Liberty, which I love. The shapes, the colors, the composition… I just loved everything about this print and I will be purchasing Yellena’s art in the future for sure!

Now, I have no idea how to make prints, but I can draw. At first, I wanted to just recreate the print in one of my drawings, but as I was working on it, I found myself adding my own touches here and there.

Even though the drawing is VERY similar to the print, which was my original intention, it also has a little bit of BellaV in it.

Underwater drawings

I truly admire the artist that created the original print, I find her prints very inspiring and I am glad I came across her art. The main reason why Yellena’s prints are so appealing to me is because they remind me of underwater worlds with a touch of surrealism, which is a theme that seems to surface a lot in my original drawings, like this zentangle.

Feather hair clip

Add spice to your flapper costume with a handmade feather hair clip

This feather hair clip is a specialty item that I made for a dance costume.

The dance has a 1920s aesthetics with lots of fringe and feathers that add tons of movement and visual interest when you move.

As I mentioned, some special-occasion items will not have a step by step tutorial, but you can still find inspiration to create your own.

If you want me to make one for you, contact me, I do take custom orders 🙂

I made this feather hair clip with a couple of feathers that I bought at a local arts and crafts store, but the rest of the materials I already had at home. For example, I repurposed a bridal garter for the white floral appliqué. I used glitter paint to add some color and dimension, and I glued some rhinestones for added sparkles and shine. I also glued a couple of fashion hairpins that I didn’t use very often.  I love my new feather hair clip!

Make sure to leave a comment, and if you make your own, show me what it looks like. Enjoy!

Easy crafts to do at home: Mini bucket

Find easy crafts to do at home with your kids

I love it when I come up with easy crafts to do at home that look store-bought, like this mini bucket.

After making several pencil holders and bird feeders recycling cans and other household items, I’ve discovered a few simple tips to make them look more polished.

Keep on reading if you want to know what I did.

Materials

crafting | recycling cans | do-it-yourself birdfeeder | easy crafts to do at home

This is what you need to make this mini bucket:

  • A clean tuna can
  • Clothespins
  • A hot glue gun (not pictured)
  • Twine
  • Gold spray paint
  • 1 sheet of construction paper
  • One craft foam sheet

Easy crafts to do at home: Instructions

crafting | do-it-yourself | easy crafts to do at home
crafting | diy pencil holder | easy crafts to do at home

1. Clean your can with soap and water and let dry.

2. Then, pull the clothespin apart. If you are making this with kids you should make sure to do this part yourself.

3. Now, glue the clothespins around the can until the whole surface is covered. Depending on the type of glue that you use for crafting, you’ll have to press the clothespins against the can until the glue sets a bit.

I made the mistake of using super glue the first time around. Don’t do that because you will have to hold the clothespins to the can forever until the glue dries a little bit. Use a hot glue gun instead, it’s easier to apply and it dries in seconds.

If you are making this with kids, you should either glue the clothespins yourself, or supervise your kids carefully to avoid accidents.

Finishing touches

easy crafts to do at home | diy home decor tutorials

You can get your homemade crafts and gifts to look like you bought them at the store just by adding some simple finishing touches here and there.

1. Once you’ve finished gluing the clothespins around the can and before you paint it, you are going to use your can to draw a circle on a sheet of construction paper. I chose a color similar to the natural finish of the clothespins.

2. Next, cut the circle and glue it to the bottom of the can.

3. Now, spray the bucket with the gold spray paint and let dry.

4. Wrap some twine around the bucket. Use the indentations on the clothespins to help secure it in place. You can also use a few drops of hot glue to secure both ends of the twine.

5. Then, you are going to use the can again to draw a circle on the craft foam sheet. Cut the circle and glue it to the bottom of the can, on top of the construction paper.

You can choose to skip using the construction paper altogether. I used it because it helps adhere the foam sheet to the mini bucket, and to add an extra detail.

6. Last, measure the inside of the mini bucket. You will to measure both the diameter as well as the height.

Following these measurements, cut a rectangle of the craft foam sheet and glue it to the inside of your mini bucket.

And you are all done! I hope you like it, and if you have your own easy crafts to do at home with your kids, post a comment and share your tutorials 😀

Arts and crafts: Crochet teddy bear

Fill your spare time with arts and crafts!

With so many beautiful arts and crafts tutorials out there it’s easy to find inspiration for your homemade gifts.

I came across this teddy bear when I was looking for ideas for a baby toy. My baby nephew’s 1st birthday was coming up, and I wanted to make something special for his first birthday. After all, you only turn 1 once :D!

This teddy bear is very easy to make if you already know how to knit. To find out how you can make your own, keep on reading.

Supplies

arts and crafts tutorial diy crochet toy
  • Scrap yarn (if you have some, if not, 1 small skein of each color would be enough)
  • A crochet hook (you’ll need to calculate your gauge)
  • Fiber fill
  • A yarn needle
arts and crafts, crochet tutorial, diy

Instructions

arts and crafts, crochet toy tutorial, diy

This teddy bear is not my original pattern, I found it in this amazing website dedicated to all things amigurumi, crochet, and knitsThe pattern is free, which is super nice and generous of the designer, but you may only use it for your own personal arts and crafts projects.

I know there are thousands of free patterns that you can find online for your arts and crafts projects. But there are several reasons why I chose this particular one.

For example, I love that it’s a Picasso bear! Pablo Picasso is probably one of my favorite artists of all times, and not just because I am from Spain. Actually, I find his art very inspirational.

What makes this bear a “Picasso” bear is the shirt; check out this picture of Picasso wearing his iconic stripes.

Another things that I love about this pattern is that you can find it in both English and Spanish, in case you only speak one of the two languages. Así que si no hablas inglés, o si no sabes hablarlo muy bien, todavía puedes tejer el osito siguiendo las instrucciones en español 😀
