DIY: customised hip flask4.06.2014
I'm not going to lie.. I'm still quite partial to sneaking a hip flask into my handbag on a night out (I can't help myself, I'd rather spend my money on shoes and biscuits.) when I saw this DIY to cover hip flasks on a beautiful mess I knew I had to try it.. it's so darn simple!
a hip flask (lots on amazon for as little as £3)
oilcloth fabric/PVC fabric often used for tablecloths (you can find some on eBay, etsy)
glue, craft knife or scissors
this project only takes 10 minutes or so to make! start off by cutting a strip of oilcloth or waterproof PVC fabric to fit around your flask (you'll want it to overlap an inch or so.)
you'll probably find a lot of oilcloth is sold by the half meter/meter so you'll have lots left over for other projects. I picked up mine in dunelms and it only cost me about £2 for each half meter (eBay is a great source for these wipe clean fabrics; I've seen some really nice gingham and polka dot ones ones but I didn't have the patience to wait for them to arrive!) if you really want to splash out cath kidston have the world's most amazing oilcloth selection!
once you've cut it to fit fold the oilcloth around and simply glue in place using a multi purpose glue (one that adheres to metal is best!)
taaa daaaa.. I think it's happy hour time!
I think they look pretty darn cute and I can't believe how quick they are to make! I'm going to source some more oilcloth in different patterns and make some more for my friends.. I think they'll make great gifts.
what do you think.. would you try making these too?
