If you’re a long time reader you will already know that my favorite projects are easy and simple. Today’s project is both. I saw a picture of this hanging leather rack on Pinterest and knew right away I had to try and make my own. This was my first time working with real leather so it was definitely an educational experience as well.
Happy Friday, friends! Don’t know about you but spring fever is in full effect at my house. I live with three dogs and we find ourselves playing outside more and more these days. This is the first time I’ve ever lived with dogs and I honestly don’t remember what life was like without them. I’m hoping to make some DIYs for the blog in between playtime this weekend. Plus, I have an exciting announcement coming up next week so stay tuned!

I’m not gonna lie to you guys. This DIY almost didn’t happen. I had seen so many tutorials on marbling that I wanted to try it for myself. I figured, how hard could it be?

I remember doing tie-dye at a summer camp I went to as a kid and it was my favorite thing! I loved playing with the placement of the rubber bands to try and create cool patterns. Of course, it would never turn out how you imagined but you would convince yourself that it still looked cool.
Shibori is a Japanese technique of dying by binding, stitching, twisting, folding and compressing fabric to create intricate designs. AKA, tie-dye for adults. The main dye used in shibori is indigo.
