My various interpretations of Linen this week
Top: Big W
Skirt: Target (actually refashioned from dress)
Earrings: Dressing Your Truth
Yes!!!! You got me!! This is a refashion! Take it away Refashioning of the Week snoop....
Do your remember this black scarf I bought on my $50 shop? Well I did have an ulterior motive for buying this!........ Adding sew-on gems!!!!
This scarf was really wide so I folded in half and sewed the sides together.
I then folded in half again.
The gems I bought were just from the local craft store, it was a really good packet as it had a mix of all sorts of shapes and colours.
I arranged the gems into a flower pattern. I'm sure any pattern would look great here - flat-back gems look amazing on anything.
After all the gems were in place I proceeded to glue them on with super glue. The one I used here is a new purchase that I'm very excited about. It's called Ultimate Glue by Crafter's Pick and it's a non-toxic, water-soluble superglue.
Remember to use gloves and work in a ventilated area when you are using stronger glues.
Once all the gems were glued I proceeded to sew them on (this really in an optional step, if you use enough glue if should hold them well-enough).
It did take a while to sew this (1hr). Just as well I recorded The Voice the other night! Go Celia, Jackie and Harrison!
I actually only had enough gems to do a bit less that half of it - but I don't think it really needs more and sits better by being quite minimal.
This amazing necklace is what first inspired me to make the scarf. I bought it from Portmans earlier in the year. I originally got the gems with the plan of making a similar necklace. I'm still going to try to make something like this but I thought a scarf is more appropriate for this time of year (Autumn for me).
Is Linen here? Maybe I should have worn this instead?
