Love 2 DIY on the Weekend~ Design It Yourself!

Okay DIY lovers~ this week we're putting a new spin on the 'D' in DIY!

I found products made by our Upcyclers team that you can custom order in your own design~ choose your colors, send in your own favorite jeans, pick a name & photo or just customize the size! You name it, you got it!

Lynn Minney Designs offers you a chance to upcycle those favorite old worn out jeans into a new handbag!

The Crafters Co-op will handsew custom wool "Slocks" (slipper/socks) for you in your size and choice of colors!

Or how about a custom made handsewn fiber art bird from Gone Rustic? Each one is uniquely designed for you...

Like monsters? Cadence from Altered Decadence starts her creations with an Altoid tin and upcycles them into furry monsters designed in your choice of colors, eyes & TEETH!

Here's another way to upcycle an old favorite cloth item! Drapes of Wrath can custom design an apron from your old shirt, a pair of Grandma's funky vintage curtains~ you name it! They love an "Upcycling Challenge"!

Prairie Peasant will upcycle your choice of hardcover books into a Rebound Journal... I loved reading these when I was a little girl!

Jordana from LaraLeib Designs will create a beautiful collage in a magnetic frame using your photo and name of choice~

Another collage artist, Abounding Treasures, will create a Flutterby Treasure just for you!

It's wedding season, so how about some custom made shot glasses for the bride and groom created by Pir8t? Choose a design, names or a saying to be etched in glass!

Here's another gift idea for the happy couple from Tough and Twisted, who create custom designed metal art in a wide variety of choices~

I love this one from Heather, even though she's not on our team I just had to include this! Choose from a variety of original graphic illustrations by Drunk Girl Designs (love that name, giggles!) of your favorite recipe to hang on your wall or give as a gift! How unique is that?

So even if you aren't super crafty, you can still Love 2 DIY~ just do the designing and Upcyclers will do the rest!

Have a fantastic weekend!
