What this Blog is about - Zebraspider DIY Anti-Fashion Blog
2021 · 25. January 2021
Welcome to all old and new readers of this blog! I think it's a good time for an introduction and roundup of what to expect. First, I switched to blogging in English in October 2019, and now more people from all over the world seem to find me. Secondly, after a bit of a hiatus in 2020, I'm back with a range of exciting topics while staying true to the blogs past. I'm planning a new post once a week again and aiming for Monday, but don't pin me down to this. I have so much to tell you, so here...

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.

Re-dyed and repaired cardigan - Zebraspider DIY Anti-Fashion Blog
2021 · 11. January 2021
You might remember the garish dyed cardigan that I made more than a year ago. I didn't wear it as much as I'd liked because the bright tie-dye-look often clashed with the rest of my outfit. There was also a problem at the shoulder seams that needed to be fixed. I am living in this cosy cardigan at the moment, and I'll show you what I did to make it perfect.

What's new with the patches? - organic cotton and reduced surprise packs - Zebraspider DIY Anti-Fashion Blog
2020 · 06. February 2020
You might know, Zebraspider is going greener and fabrics are a huge part of it. Patches are definitely my bestsellers in numbers, no wonder that I would change this sooner than later. All patches are now organic. There are just a few old ones left for a reduced price. On this occasion, I also discontinued some of the less popular designs, so this is the last chance to get one of these.

2020 · 26. January 2020
This is one of my most popular blog posts in German from a while back and I thought you might like my DIY tips on bleaching as well. I have often experimented with bleach, be it with a spray bottle or a homemade bleaching gel. Today I get to the basics with bleaching a domestos jeans the classic way. "Mistake" may be a little over the top for some points, but there are a few things that can go wrong. So if you haven't dared yet or just need a few tips, this is for you:

Tank, Batwing and Longsleeve - new Tops in the Shop - Zebraspider DIY Anti-Fashion Blog
2020 · 21. January 2020
This is the last part in the series of shop news for now - after I filled up the handmade tops section as well. Somehow, tops sell much faster than skirts, but I don't seem to make them as often. Maybe it's because I usually wear a lot of band shirts, although there are many cool fabrics in my stash that would make awesome shirts too.

2020 · 14. January 2020
I'm still doing Roller Derby and as I'm more advanced now, I'm going to more training sessions. More on how this is going also in this post, but first I want to show you my new sports clothes. For Skating, I usually wear shorts and currently I only have a bought and a handmade pair. Time to make another one that is exactly how I want it to be. That's what I did on my X-mas holiday.

New stencil print zipper pouches - Zebraspider DIY Anti-Fashion Blog
2020 · 07. January 2020
When I signed up for the market at Tomorrow's Ghost Festival in Whitby on a short notice, I had to make some new products quickly. I haven't made arm warmers in a while, so a batch of them was my go-to choice. There are two types this time: the straight cut ones with or without cuffing and the fitted ones with thumb holes, or fingerless gloves. I picked some of my favourite fabrics that I'm sure you like too.

Crochet against low mood - red fishnet top - Zebraspider DIY Anti-Fashion Blog
2019 · 23. December 2019
I haven't been in a nice place recently. It probably was a combination of a stressful summer, dealing with colds in autumn and not a lot of energy left for creative projects. My mood was declining with the light and I thought picking up a simple crochet project might help. It did. Well, a bit at least. So today I'd like to tell you the story of the red fishnet top.

New stencil print zipper pouches - Zebraspider DIY Anti-Fashion Blog
2019 · 04. December 2019
You did't hear from me in a while. I had to take a pause from weekly blogging and also from social media. I was so busy preparing for the markets in October that I was a bit exhausted (and also a bit sad that the selling wasn't so successful as I thought it would be). But I created a lot of new things during that time that will make it into the shop bit by bit. Today, I'd like to tell you about the new zipper pouches.
