Plastic Bottle Flower (DIY)



Once again, an Eco friendly approach to reduce plastic waste, this time I made flowers with my plastic bottles. A flower that will not have any fragrance to attract your nostrils, but it would certainly catches your eyes, the flower that is not so soft to touch, but it's surely soft on mother earth, a flower that would look beautiful forever that would give you a satisfying feeling of creation...

Here is the super easy steps to follow, to make these flowers -
Material required - Plastic bottles, scissors, thin wire and pliers, beads, needle

1. Choose any shampoo, oil, talcum powder bottle, as per the colour of flower you want to create.


2. Remove the plastic wrapping of it.


3. Cut it in small rectangle pieces.


4. Shape them as petals of flower (flower design may vary as per your imagination).


5. Prick the needle at the bottom part of the petal to insert the wire.
6. Tie the wire around the petal and bead it as shown in picture.


7. Tie all 5 wires together tightly.


8. Open up the flower by spreading the petals.



9. Make as many colourful flower as you want.

DIY Baby Saree - Wrap around Saree

DIY Baby Saree - For cute little princesses


I brought her fancy and simple frocks, I brought her many pairs of Jeans, skirts and tees, I even brought her princess dresses and ghagharas... but she was not satisfied. 
She wants a Saree, something like mamma has. It's a mystery why a little girl wants all the things that her mamma has, while she's still a small girl, I refuse to let her grow up, but sometimes it feels so cute, so sometimes I surrender. Like this one, I got forced to make a saree for her.
But Me and my daughter, we both are happy with the finished product. She loves it so much that she wanna wear it all the time...

Here is the procedure how I made this saree -
Materials - any soft saree, cloth for lining (Astar), Sewing machine and materials.
Procedure -
1. Take two cloths, a soft saree of size (204 x 24 inch) a lining cloth size (37 x 24 inch).




2. Stitch both the saree and lining cloths on two sides (as shown in pic)
3. once saree and lining cloth is stitched together, make 6 pates, 4.5 inch each, and stitch these plates on the base part of saree (as shown in pic)


4. Attach 3 Skirt / pant hook set to the saree. Hooks at the back side and closing ends on the front side (As shown in pic)
5. Your saree in complete now.
All the measurements are based on my 5 yr old girl's height and waist size, so you may need to adjust as per your daughters measurements.
6. Its like wrap around, so while draping the saree, adjust the two hooks besides plates, as they should come in front and in center, close all the hooks and drap the pallu, either falling or gujrati style or anything that your daughter likes...





Do make one, they look really adorable...

Paint your Shoes



A baby's tiny feet.... you can hold them in your palm and be in the awe of the magic. What isn't there to love it? Tiny, little, pudgy, ticklish...... and super cute. I still remember the soft touch of her little feet as when she was just few days old.



Time is flying and my daughter is growing faster than that.
I love when she gives her random requirements, like butterfly mask or Prince costume for her teddy bear so that it can attend Cinderella's (She herself is Cinderella) dance party, I must say that 70% of my artistic things are originated because of her childish demands.
So here is her wish of shoes having butterfly, orange flower and 'Depisone' (her own word for heart shape) flowers.








Materials Used - White Canvas shoes, Acrylic colors, pencil, Spray varnish (optional)
