I know I am pretty late for this post. But as we all know ITS BETTER LATE THAN NEVER, so here  are 3 hand painted lamps for Diwali festival.

Since I didn't have much time before taking my Diwali vacation I managed to paint only 3 diyas. But now that I do have some spare time and feel like painting, I will give these remaining diyas a different look.

D.I.Y. : Turn your old pullover into Bolero

HI guys,
In my one of my DIY post we saw how a old knit top was restyled to be a Bolero HERE.
Well today lets restyle an old pullover. I love shrugs and Bolero. And so this pullover has also become a Bolero. 

Since I haven't documented the process of restyling you will have to bear with my pictorial illustrations. And I am sorry to inform that I wasn't able to find any of my old snaps wearing the pullover sweater either.I can just show you all how it looks now. 

Anyways this is the journey of 'Pullover to Bolero'. 

Mark the lines to cut on with help of a tailor's chalk. Marking on woolen clothes is a bit difficult. You will need to rely on your instincts.

The length of the sleeves can be whatever you want it to be. And don't forget to add up 2 inches to the desirable length before cutting the sleeves. Same goes for the bottom half of the pullover.

Whenever I machine stitch the woolen fabrics, I get a stretched wavy hem. And I didn't want that hem on this one so I have hand stitched the edges. 

I have added these big blue navy colored buttons just for show. The shrug is held together with help of two press buttons.

If you have any query then please write to me at

P.S. In the next post you will find some pictures of me wearing this Bolero.

D.I.Y. : Painting Your Footwear

Hi all,
After a successful attempt of coloring my Catwalk Gladiators. I laid my hands on a pair of old sandals. I generally prefer things which I have used plenty of times. Reason behind using the used and old is, firstly, I am able to create a new look for the old one and re-use it. And secondly, if sadly my attempt fails I have no regrets of ruining any new article...  

These nude flat sandals were my favorite and I used them a lot. One look at this snap shows how much I have tortured them. Anyways, I wasn't in a mood to part with them. So decided to color them too. Now the question was which colors to opt for. Neons, pastels and color block trends being the latest fad, I thought mixing two trends. So I picked color block and pastels. The result was this:

The color palette comprises of navy blue, pastel green and dark green.

I have used Camel company's Artists' Acrylic Colors. And after the paint dried I have applied 2 layers of Camel company's Picture Varnish. 

What I love about them is that I can team them with variety of apparels.
