Congratulations to Whitney for coming up with the winning name "A Penny For Your Farthing" and winning this necklace!

They were often called Penny Farthings, so based on a historical background, my name suggestion is A Penny for Your Farthing."

DIY Moccasin Restyle

A warm welcome to Heather who has an adorable blog over at She will be sharing how to make these cute custom moccasins from a moccasin making kit.

Today I'm sharing with you a quick & cheap tutorial on how to make moccasins from a kit and how to make them just a bit cuter!  First you need to pick up a leather moccasin kit, I've seen them online here &here.. but I swooped up mine from Michaels & even used a coupon (grab a craft store coupon here) to score this kit for a little over $7.  The kit comes complete with the parts and instructions to make a basic pair.  Most of you know that I'm not a very basic's kind of gal, so this is where my love of Mod Podge came in handy!

Extra supplies needed besides the kit:
Mod Podge
Fabric of choice

First I cut out a small stencil of the lip of the moccasin on my fabric, I then flipped the fabric over and made a couple points of reference from the cut out holes and made another smaller shape to fit into the portion of the lip that ends up being the top of the shoe.

Next up take the leather tops and inside your holes you will apply a very thin layer of Mod Podge.  If you go to far out it can stain the fabric so only put it where you need it. Then place your material template right side up, press down (taking out any air pockets) and again apply another layer of Mod Podge.  This time you want to keep it thin while still covering completely, and allow to dry.. I let mine sit overnight.  What's great is that you can do this to any pair of shoes you own, just make sure to apply a sealer when finished if you plan on wearing them outside (mine are casual comfy shoes so I'm not to worried)

Waiting for them to dry was probably the hardest part of the entire project, because I'm impatient, everything else was a total breeze because the instructions are provided.


Next up take the tops (that are dry) and start attaching them to the shoe body.  Follow the directions according to the packaging that the moccasins came in.

DIY Tutorial: Fabric Tape

Let's face it, everyone loves cute packaging. Getting a package in the mail is the best, but throw in some adorable packed-with-love packaging? Just amazing.

The great thing about fabric tape is, you can use it for virtually anything and you can customize it with any fabric you want to match any theme or color scheme. I have a ton of fabric scraps at my disposal at any given time and I hate to waste so of course, I hoard them until I think of something neat to do. Enter, fabric tape!

But wait... carpet tape? What is carpet tape? Oh sorry, you don't lay down carpet for a living? I forgot. Just kidding. Go to your local home improvement store and they should have it. We got ours at Home Depot in the same aisle with giant rolls of carpet. Rhino Grip is the brand we got and it was about $8.50 for 75 yards. And it's about 2 inches thick, so if you're looking for thinner tape you can cut your final product in half long-ways and have 150 yards! Done deal.

Now, the fun part. Depending on what type of fabric you have, you'll use one of the two above methods. Both work just fine. I had some strips cut for a project I decided against that happened to be the perfect size. But I also had a thicker piece that I could lay several strips on.

The double sided, yes, make sure you get double sided, carpet tape has paper on both ends and basically just glue in between. No matter what your method, iron your fabric (if it needs it), peel off one side of brown paper and slowly press the sticky side down on your fabric, pressing firmly as you go to prevent bubbling, etc. Then trim if needed. I liked the semi rough edges, so I kept it a little messy, but feel free to keep it neat and trim, too.

Your final product up close. One side fabric, one side backing. When you peel the brown backing off, you'll see the adhesive, which is very sticky. I don't recommend sticking it to anything you don't want to "ruin" because it is pretty strong.

Seriously. I started taping the most random things. Go crazy with it. Let me know if you try it out, I'd love to see the results and what you use it for!

Welcome to the new Kintage blog! I am so excited to have started this project and am almost getting around to launching. If you're following this blog and have no idea why, it's because this used to be my personal blog. My personal blog is now located at

I've been working nonstop on getting the website up, taking product photos, spending hours and hours in photoshop, researching mailing materials and countless other tasks. Kintage is going to open in a week or two, fingers crossed, and I hope everyone falls madly in love with the fashion selections I've chosen.

Right now Kintage is a one woman show, but I have big dreams! Follow along with me as I embark on this journey of fashion, business and living my dream!
