To be honest, WTF – a designer who sees the world in rose-colored tones, as well as daily fashion discoveries and inspirations contributed by the designer.
Cherry + straw = two of my favorite summer motifs. After I stumbled upon the beautiful cherry appliqués, I knew I had to use them somehow. While there were a lot of straw bags in my closet, there was so much environment to choose from. Basically, this combination was not more wise. I am currently obsessed with traditional Portuguese reed bags, each of which is woven from traditional basket weaves on looms and is extremely durable.
The proliferation of the 90s, the daisy pressure of Drew Barrymore, made me feel all kinds of nostalgia this year. Naturally, I took advantage of trend motifs and added a few polymer clay daisies to a pair of lace-up summer sandals. You’ll want to find a pair of fine strap sandals for this project, and the flatter the straps, the better.
Yesterday, I changed the way the gallery prints in one of our bathrooms. Finally, he sent me down a rabbit hole, looking for artists I’ve been with at HonestlyWTF…
Let’s face it, everybody’s dealing with Scandi these days. This means that I am obsessed with Brøgger, a London-based label that was formerly designed as a designer in 2016 by Danish-born designer Julie Brøgger.
Since Tevas re-entered my life four years ago, I have not stopped loving them – and I have brought them on almost every journey I have spent in the summer. Comfortable AF. End of story. When I saw the geniuses behind the Arizona Love wrapped in k trekky renkli sandals in colorful bandanas, I kicked the idea for not thinking it myself.
Israeli artist Shira Barzilay brings a unique perspective to photographs with incredibly dynamic doodles. It is surprising how he can inject so much motion and life into an image with a simple, continuous paintbrush stroke. How inspiring to be able to remove beauty from anonymity.
Husband and wife Phoebe Bell and Chris Monahan transformed their love affairs with energetic streets, vibrant colors and traditional Indian products into the global treasures market with its boho-modern label Sage x Clare. With ethical practices ahead of their work, the Australian design duo community spends months abroad working side by side with block printers and screen printers.
Frankly, Innika Choo can’t do it wrong. The Bali-based designer continues to walk out of the park with wavy, bohemian pieces built with light cotton sheets and sheets. I look forward to every year…

I wanted to do a tutorial and finally decided on this little macrame bracelet. It is based on the knotted bracelets you see in tourist shops. It is very easy to do and you can design it to suit your style, depending on the beads and beads you choose. They also offer great gifts due to the adjustable length of the sliding buckle.
As long as the bead holes are large enough to accommodate two cords, almost any type of cords and cords work. Only one node is used along a simple square node. The sliding buckle is as simple as finishing, and the whole project can do what you want in part of American Idol or the TV.
You’ll need a few simple things:
- 4 meter cable (I used C-Lon Tex 400 for this demo)
- 8 or more beads depending on the length of the bracelet
- 2 small beads for rockers
- 3 straight pins
- Needle tip for finishing needle (has round ballpoint tip)
- Needle Tip Jewelry Pliers (Optional)
1)Cut the 2-piece strap up to 24,, hold it together and clip about 8 clipboard boards from one end. These will be fill cables. I use a shade of lavender for my stuffing cords.
Cut a piece of cord about 2 meters long. This knot will become ropes. Normally I use the same color cable for both fill and knot cords, but for this demo only, I use a dark purple shade for knot cords. Locate the center of the knot cord, slide it under the filler cables and secure it to the foamcore panel. We will now start to work with square knots with knot cords on the filler cables.
2) I use the right hand, so I usually start with the cable on the right side of the filler cables. Place the fill cords horizontally on the right to form a ring on the right. Take the cable on the left and place it on the horizontal cable, then lift it up under the cables and with the ring on the right. Pull out both knot cables and tighten. This is 1/2 of the square node.
3) Repeat step 2, but take the left cord and place it horizontally on the filler cables that form a loop on the left. Take the right cord and place it on the horizontal cord, then turn it under all the cables and top to left. Pull out both knot cables and tighten. You just made a full-frame knot.
4) After each 3 to 5 square knots, continue to make square knots and place a bead on the filler cables. The number of nodes depends on the size of the cord, the size of the beads, and the fact that many nodes look nice to you. Continue this pattern to the desired length. Note that the sliding clamp will add approximately ″ add.
When you’re done, thread a knot of thread into your needle and sew it to the center as far as possible. If you have problems, use a pair of jewelery pliers to pull your needle. If you find that your knots are too tight and you cannot thread the entire cord, remove the 3-ply cord and sew each thread separately. After properly sewing both knot cables, cut off any excess.
5) Then we make the buckle. Circle your work and hold it together by loosely tying it with a small amount of cord close to both sides of the nodes (I used orange). Foamcore pin bracelet.
Cut a strap about 12 ″ in length. Just like you did in step 1, slide this cord under the four cords and make square knots on all four cords for the 1/2 cord. Finish ends just like you would with a bracelet. When sewing these tips, avoid putting needles into the cords inserted into the needle.
6) Remove these temporary lanyard bits. There are 2 loose cables protruding from both ends of the buckle section. Hold 2 cords together and form a slip knot, place a bead on both cords, then create another slip knot to hold it in place. Cut the excess. Run and show everyone you know.
