This past weekend i was inspired by Lisa & Katie to make cute little things to wear and to put around my room. I was feeling super crafty & ended up making some things i'm quite proud of :)
Crafting is a fantastic alternative to going out and buying jewelry & hair accessories - because it saves you money and it's also a fun hobby to do over the weekend or whenever you fancy :)
How i made the cuties!:
I made the bows out of ribbons & hot glued clips that i already owned to the back.
I made the flower clips for my hair by snipping off flowers from this fake bouquet we had around the house & hot glued them to clips.
I made the strawberry clip out of felt. I sewed the main red part to the green stem, and then sewed little bits with white thread on the red part to look like seeds. I then hot glued the finished strawberry to a clip.
To make the earrings i found buttons that my mom keeps in a huge container (it's a massive collection from over the years) and found matching ones. I then hot glued the backs (more toward the top so it kind of hangs off the ear more) to earrings i don't wear anymore :)
ignore my cracked Crackberry :OOh! And i also made this little phone case that i was originally just going to make into a plushie, but discovered my phone would fit in it, so i chopped off what would've been his ears & just sewed around the body, leaving the top open to slide my phone in :). I wanna name him! I just can't think of a name...my phone's name is Daisy so it would be cute if they kind of went well together! Suggestions? :)
