As promised, here is the second part of the Halloween DIY projects from the last years now translated. There is a printable garland if you're into paper crafts or prefer something quick and easy.

How to sew a pencil wrap - Zebraspider Eco Anti-Fashion
2021 · 02. August 2021
I always loved coloured pencils, so making this to carry one of my favourite art tools everywhere is a bit like a childhood dream. I got back to them just a little while ago when I started with a colouring book and used them for my own art. A wrap like this can be used for many different kinds of pens and pencils, as well as for brushes and other art supplies.

How to sew Zero-Waste undies - Zebraspider Eco Anti-Fashion
2021 · 23. June 2021
I mentioned Zero-Waste fashion three weeks ago in this blog post on two eco-designers. Through Yhonia's Instagram, I found those red zero-waste panties by @duckgoesoink - just when I needed more undies. I like my own pattern, but it requires much more fabric than you'd think and leaves a lot of oddly shaped scraps - such a waste. So, I gave it a try and have some tips and ideas for you.

How do I sew on the patch now? - Have you ever wondered after you bought a patch from the cool band at the gig (or online)?

How to stencil on fabric with freezer paper and other materials - Zebraspider DIY Anti-Fashion Blog
2021 · 18. January 2021
Using stencils to paint my stuff was pretty much the first thing I did to turn my regular clothes into unique punk pieces. I don't count the marker-on-T-shirt scribble, and I have tutorials for bleach in other posts. Although I now have the option of screen printing, I still like to use stencils. In principle, it's straightforward - you cut out the motif, put the stencil on the fabric and start painting. I've tried many materials and techniques and would like to introduce them to you here.

2019 · 28. October 2019
This was intended to be two separate posts, but it's almost Halloween (eeek!) and I wanted to show you everything before. I did two markets in October, so I didn't have the time to do a Halloween DIY like usual. But I did a workshop with Skullduggery Ceramics earlier this month for some Halloween all-year decorations that are finished now. Today I'd like to tell you a also bit about the markets and show you the nice stuff I found.
