My latest experiment with fabric – a houndstooth patterned pindant necklace! These are a bit addicting to make and I kinda want to make one of every fabric I own (and it’s quite a lot). Since I’d rather not just make hundreds of them (it’d be so easy to do!), I’ll stop here for now. In the meantime, I’m researching fabric brooches and bows to go with my Spring outfits :)
I have a *lot* of fabric samples – a large plastic bag filled with them – that I’m sorting through. There are some pretty standard fabrics as well as really pretty embroidered and quilted textures. Just wanted to share my latest experiments! These are made the same way as a regular pinback button is made except that instead of paper, a circular piece of fabric and no mylar layer since it would take away from the fabric’s texture. I love wearing these since they’re very much one of a kind! My plan is to make more of these and make custom ones for friends’ birthdays :)
What crafty thing have you been trying out/experimenting with?
I started a new craft blog last year for the upcoming Craftic site. Since I find it redundant to post in 2 craft blogs, I’d like to invite you to check it out! The Craftic blog is filled with inspiration for your knitting, crochet, sewing, felting, and other projects. I try to focus more on the materials rather than the selected craft. So yes, photos of yarn, buttons, fabric, more yarn, beads and yes, more yarn :) Hope you visit!
How gorgeous is this necklace remake?! I need to try this… maybe with slightly smaller beads. The process looks simple enough for a quick afternoon project. This might be happening soon :)
