Mood DIY: (Nearly) No-Sew Beach Wrap


Winter (dare I say it?) finally seems to be leaving. And in typical NY fashion, we’re looking right past spring and getting our wardrobe ready for summer. So what better way to do that than with a quick and easy DIY beach wrap?
Things you’ll need:

Mood DIY: 2 Minute Bridesmaid Necklace


Wedding season is coming. And for most people it comes with joy, excitement, and often a little anxiety. Flowers, venues, weather; there are simply too many things to worry about. However, the perfect gift for your bridesmaids does not need to be one of them.

Mood DIY: Felt Bowl


I made a felt rose petal bowl a few weeks ago, and it’s one of the most convenient additions to my dresser ever. It can hold jewelry, pens, clips, and essentially any other little things that float around my room without a home. Since I had some …

Mood DIY: Retro Wrap Shirt

I figured it was time to stop using scraps of paper to mark my place in all my books, since the scraps tend to end up lost on the floor anyway. I’ve seen origami pocket bookmarks before and thought, why not do something similar with fabric? They can fold …

Mood Style: Short Sleeve Transition Coat

The transition from winter to spring is always very tricky in the eastern part of the United States.  Some days are very cold, some are very warm and others are comfortably mild.  For those mild days, it’s a challenge finding the appropriate outer wear, so I always defer to my …

Mood DIY: Flower Cut-Out Pillow

I’ve always been a fan of fabric manipulation, but even the basic stuff seemed really intimidating. Still, I decided to play around with some simple smocking for a pillow, and I was surprised by how quick and easy it was. And the final result is absolutely beautiful!

Mood DIY: 5 Minute Coin Purse

Everyone needs more purses. They’re cute, they’re functional, and they’re versatile. And the best way to make the most of that versatility is to DIY your own!

I had some leftover felt to work with, and thought a mini clutch bag would be the perfect project – it can hold …
