I have been wanting to make my own skirts for quite some time now... at least a couple of years really. At the end of August, right before Fan Expo, I finally made my first skirt. I made it from a dark, Spider-man sheet that I had. It was actually much easier than I expected it to be and I had very few problems making it. After posting a picture of it on Instagram after finishing it, I felt pretty confident with the result since it was getting pretty awesome compliments.
For my first skirt, I'm
very happy with how it turned out and I've been wearing it regularly.
Trying out new crafts and hands-on projects is so much fun when the
finished project turns out good. Obviously, there can be a bit of
frustration or even some flaws with the end product. But when you're
happy with the end result, it is such a great feeling!
A friend of mine wanted to try experimenting with mod podge and all the
comics we had lying around (specifically, the free comics we get at
conventions). So we bought some headbands online and tried making some
comic headbands. I made the X-Men (Wolverine/Cyclops) and Spider-man
headbands. Mary made the rest. She even started to get all fancy using
scrapbooking papers as well.
These were our two first headbands - X-Men and Superman!
I then tried making a Spider-man one which I wasn't super pleased with the finished result. Not to sell anyways, but I'll definitely wear it.

We brought the headbands to Art Crawl a
couple of weeks ago and they were a success! I'm definitely excited to
Have you tried any new DIY or craft projects lately?
