DIY: Apple crumble

We're so in a DIY-mood this week! Today, I've made a delicious sugar bomb, apple crumble :D
This is what you need:

-4 apples (in slices)
-1 tiny teaspoon of cinnamon
-250gr of unsalted butter
-300gr of flour
-a few raisins
-150gr of sugar
-50gr of brown sugar


Preheat your oven (180 degrees).
Lay the slices of apple in a casserole and sprinkle them with brown sugar and cinnamon.
Mix the sugar, flour and butter till you have crumble.
Cover the apple with the crumble while adding a little more butter.
Put it in your oven for 45min.

Ready? Cool it a bit and serve it with ice :) delicious!


DIY no-sew bag

What do you need: A bucket, bleach, a pillowcase, paint, potato (I used this to stamping, but you can also use something else.), a knife, a pair of scissors and a fabric.

Step 1: Fill a bucket with some bleach. Than add the pillowcase in a vaporizer. (You can also leave the pillowcase the original color.)
Step 2: Cut the fabric, and make a braid, you can choose the length.Fold your pillowcase: Watch this video.
Step 3: Cut the potato in a preferred form, put some paint on it and start to stamp.Attach the braids to the pillowcase (video) and you're ready!

Voila, your own no-sew tote bag!
This idea is from the blog Crème de la Craft

DIY: Galaxy T-shirt

Step 1: Fill a bucket with water and add some bleach. Than add the mixture in a vaporizer. (if you want to bleach the t-shirt first, unnecessary)
Step 2: Tape the lines of the form you want on your T-shirt.
Step 3: Spray the bleach on you T-shirt.
Step 4: Start painting! Use a toothbrush to paint your T-shirt, make lines while brushing. Add some stars to make it look more cosmic.

Tadaa, your own galaxy T-shirt!
