Family jewels

April 24, 2013

I haven’t DIYed as much as I would like to recently but was very inspired by a similar project made by a friend. So I took to Ebay and found the black angora top and the jewels. Added a needle and some thread and in a couple of sittings I finally finished it! I already have the materials to do a similar one in several colours. I can’t wait to have the time to do it!

    Looks really beautiful.
    This gave me an idea what I could do with some tiny fake pearls I have from an old necklace. Not my last DYI but certainly my next.

      Yes, that’s true it looks like a necklace! I am very happy with it.
      I hope you get back on the DIY train asap, I love the little hat you made me. I was actually thinking about it today, it’s almost summer time, good weather to wear it!

    So cute. How satisfying to make something so pretty all by yourself!

    Nicely done! That looks like such a soft and comfy sweater.

      Thank you! It really is comfy. I’m glad I got to wear it at least once before the weather warms up too much!

    I confess I had no idea what jelly babies looked like. I only moved to the UK a bit over a month ago and in Portugal we don’t have edible babies haha, which actually fine because eating babies is creepy. But yeah, I realised I hate them!

    I loved the Company event. I left with so many ideas and also got to talking with a girl there, which is nice because I still don’t know that many people here, let alone ones who are interested in fashion. I felt really inspired.

    Saw a couple of similar diys on pinterest and they look amazing! Perfect way to recycle an old item you might want to throw away.
