Hooray, it’s here! I’m so excited to have made it to the finals of So You Think You’re Crafty, and I want to thank everyone for their votes so far! For my wild card project, I decided to make myself a complete outfit, (it’s actually my first new outfit since moving to Korea almost 8…

Anthro Jupukka Jacket Knock Off {Tutorial}

Here’s the tutorial for my Jupukka Jacket knock off, originally posted at So You Think You’re Crafty, and I thought I would bring it home!  This jacket was made entirely from my stash, I have actually been carrying the blue cotton velvet around for YEARS, and was so pleased to find such a good use for…

Anthropologie Jupukka Jacket {So You Think You’re Crafty entry brought home}

Anthropologie Jacket Knock-off For this weeks challenge, I decided to knock-off the Jupukka Jacket from Anthropologie, but there’s actually sort of a twist behind the making of this piece,  You see the Anthropologie jacket picture is from their catalogue, which I thought was stunning, and beautiful, but then when you go to their website or store,…

Success/Failure?
