Josephus Thimister Back To Design Anti-War Fashion

Tuesday, December 31, 2013

A preview published by The Sunday Telegraph shows a rather scary collection of Cossack jackets, overalls and jodhpurs with fake blood stains on, army coats made from military surplus scrap and pants worked from survival blankets.

After working as a design consultant for the last 10 years as a cause of complete lack of funds, Thimister is now returning to the catwalk of haute couture with the generous help of Didier Grumbach, president of the Federation Fran├žaise de la Couture, who will cover the costs of production and putting on the stage for this collection from his personal savings.

Also, Thimister shall receive a grant of 5,000 euro that he can pay back in clothes or cash. Some of the famous customers of the Thimister brand in the 1990s were Madonna, Carole Bouquet and Mouna Ayoub, a Lebanese millionaire.

Glitter, Polka Dot Sweatshirt.

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

I have seen glitter polka dots everywhere and I thought a glitter polka dot sweatshirt would make a great party top for the holidays. Tulip makes it so simple by using their glitter, iron on paper. 
I made this shirt in under and hour. 
Need a cute shirt for tonight?
This is the perfect project for you.

 Things you need.
 Sweatshirt
Tulip glitter Iron on Transfer sheet
Circle hole punch
Iron
Parchment paper
Foil


Cut off your collar
 Cut off your sleeves
Pick out the color paper you want, I wanted gold.
 punch your dots,
I punched about 20 dots.
Place some aluminum foil in between your sweatshirt.
 Lay out your dots in a pattern you like. 
*Make sure you place the dots shiny side up, dull side down.
 Lay a piece of parchment paper over your dots.
 Place your iron on a no steam setting.
Iron over each of your dots about 30 to 40 seconds for each dot.
Make sure all of your dots have set. If they have not set,
repeat the iron on process again.
 That is it. So simple!
 I love my new sweatshirt.
I hope all your Holiday dreams come true.

Sweatshirt Hack: Sparkle Sleeves

Friday, December 6, 2013
Tis the season of sweatshirts. They are warm and comfy, but lordy, they look so frumpy. I love that I've seen other chicas take a pair of scissors to them to alter them in a more fashionable way. I wanted to get in on the fun, but I needed to find a way to make my design appear appealing for my plus-size bod. Here's what I came up with!

Glittered Glam Christmas Trees

Thursday, December 5, 2013
I think I love Christmas for one very distinct reason... It is totally acceptable to have everything in your home covered with glitter. In fact, it's highly encouraged! So I decided to bling out a pair of paper mache cones I had in my craft stash!

Bedazzled Puff Paint Ornaments

Wednesday, December 4, 2013
Wahoo! It's that fun time of year where we decorate ornaments, bake yummy goodies and shop our brains away. But, if you are like me then you just bake and decorate because I am all about homemade things. The only time I buy something is if I truly can't "make" it! How funny is that. I wanted to show you today how to bedazzle some ornaments and add a tad bit of color to them. They almost look soft and delicate with a twist of FUN! 

Let's go make some Bedazzled Puff Paint Christmas Ornaments!

Paper Christmas Tree

Tuesday, December 3, 2013
Decorating for Christmas is so fun, but it can also get a little pricey.  I don't like to spend a lot of money on things that will only be up for a month, so I made this paper Christmas tree for almost nothing.

DIY Glittered Ornaments

Monday, December 2, 2013
 I love the look of glittered ornaments, but I wanted to do something a little different and create areas of glitter and areas of clear glass for a very modern take on a vintage look.  Painter's tape, Aleene's Super Thick Tacky Glue and Tulip Fabric Glitter made it easy to give inexpensive clear ornaments an upscale glam appeal.

Up-Cycled Menorah With the Kids

Friday, November 29, 2013
 
This year I decided to broaden my children's holiday horizons. They only know about Santa, stockings and trees. I thought a little chat about a Menorah this year was in order. Better yet, this is the kind of Menorah your kids can help make. Since this was a very special Hanukkah landing on Thanksgiving it seemed like the perfect turkey day craft.

Wood Collage Jewelry


This first week of December is always crazy - lots of festivals, online orders and gifts to make for friends. Instead of spending a lot of money on new supplies, I combed through my stash to find what I had a lot of. I came across a plastic bin full of little wood pieces. I immediately thought of painting, glueing and glittering them into necklaces and bracelets. I love how they turned out! Here's is my tutorial so you can do it too, they make great little gifts to pass out to friends and family!
