Erica Domesek is the craftiest girl we know. And we’re not talking crafty as in macaroni necklaces and potholders here. She’s glamor with a glue gun, taking runway trends and recreating them DIY-style with materials from the party supplies aisles and hardware stores, breaking each project down on her site, P.S. I Made This. And now all of Domesek’s best P.S. I Made This projects are bound in print: Her new book, P.S. I Made This, is out this week.
A few weeks ago out in Montauk, Domesek walked Lauren and me through repurposing an old pair of jean shorts by turning them into adorable messenger bags with chain link straps. We’re not quite as crafty as Erica, but she made it easy, and it’s easy to follow along in this video. It’s the first of three in a DIY series we’re working on with Erica, and the next project is Alexander Wang-inspired so stay tuned.
Now grab your ratty old jean shorts (it’s finally cool enough to be retiring them anyway), get inspired and repeat Domesek’s mantra: “I see it, I like it, I make it.”
