Faith’s NDAD Creation

This could be my new favorite piece! Faith knocked it out of the park. Just wait until you see what this shirt looks like now!

As a brand new first time mom, I didn’t have time to scour the stores for the perfect outfit for my baby girl’s one-month pictures. I wanted something feminine but not too girly, so instead of turning to expensive outfits online, I decided to make a cheaper option for this one time wear.

I scanned my closet for ideas. I found this top which a friend had given me to wear during the pregnancy. I loved the detailed stitching.

The best way to give a white backpack a little face lift for school? TIE DYE! I wanted to put together a fun tutorial that shows how to transform a basic white canvas backpack into something chic for campus.

Back to School chic!

A little DIY action will make this budget backpack look like you spent beaucoup bucks! The hardest part was picking the dyes!

The supplies…

All you need is:

Canvas backpack: (I got this one for $10 at Forever 21, but you can thrift one, use one that you have already that needs an update, or hop on over to Target to grab something!)

Dyes: I went with an assortment of brighter colors, but pick any palette that suits your fancy!

Rubber bands/gloves: Gloves are a lifesaver for your hands when you’re dyeing! Make sure you protect those fingers.

Time to get to work!

Heathyr sent me an amazing remake that I couldn’t wait to share! Her style is right up my alley and the easy tweak she made to her vintage dress will make you want to do the same thing! Check out what she did…
Hi Marisa! I bought this $10 dress for a 40′s party. I’m not a huge fan of red, but it works and it kind of reminded me of the dress from PS I Love You. Plus, it has pockets! Nothing like pockets!
