With all the family and friends that come into town during the holidays, I thought a DIY luggage rack would be appropriate for the season. I’ve always liked using them when I’m in a hotel, and I think it’s a nice touch for guests to feel like they have a spot for their luggage while visiting, etc.

To make things interesting, the canvas for this DIY luggage rack is hand-sewn, hand-stamped and only costs a few dollars to put together. Click through to see the before and after. I also included a block printing on fabric tutorial, since that was a big part of the project.

How to embellish a standard jean jacket with fringe, that looks like it was always there! Click through for the tutorial. #fashion #diy #tutorial #fringe #jeanjacket #clothing #womens #fall
