BBC’s “blast” DIY videos

the bbc has a project called blast that aims to encourage the creativity of youngsters between the ages of 13-19. as a part of this mission they have a great interactive portal full of videos and information to foster that creativity, that includes DIY fashion videos, illustrating how to restyle a sweater/jumper into a hat, how to make a sweater out of several pairs of socks (!!), a fab tute that shows how to make a bleach stenciled tee, and some ideas on how to customize trainers/sneakers.

for whatever reason, the videos are not embed-able, so you have to go over to the bbc blast site to get a gander at the aforementioned.

useful ideas for creative-minded DIY’ers of *any* vintage, i’d argue…yeah!

many more videos of a similarly fun and fashionable DIY-flavored ilk may be found on the blast DIY fashion downloads page.

    Very cool stuff, a more “official” version of the glorious ThreadBanger! Glad to see that creativity is getting pushed more these days, very in line with my own views on fashion!
