Skirt To Scarf

I found this amazing Anthropologie skirt at Goodwill a while back, and the first time I wore it the fabric started to tear by the zipper. It was just a little hole, so I decided to keep wearing it. Well, it got bigger and the hole was more like shredded fabric so I couldn’t really sew it up.

Trash To Studded Awesomeness

Yes! Saved something that I almost got rid of  and made something I like with them… that feels good!:) I was inspired to use an old “studding machine” (actually called Mini GeMagic) that we had laying around on an old pair of shoes that I was getting rid of. It’s amazing what a difference a few studs can do!

Not perfect, but they work for me!:)

Teal Button Necklace

You know… I really love buttons!

I made an outfit with this necklace that I had made some time ago, and realized that I had never posted about it! Oh the shame… I even took pictures of it right after I made it. Once again I remind myself how forgetful I can be.:)

Anyway… on to the necklace!

I thought about making a tutorial for this, but all I did was wire the buttons together with flexible jewelry making wire. As you can see in the second picture, there is one clasp attached to the side of the necklace and another clasp attached to the chain on the opposite side… I can use any necklace chain with this bib piece! I think it would be fun to make another one in a v-neck shape, or a circle… the possibilities are endless people!

Jar Beautification

I use jars to store a lot of my crafting do-dads, only thing is they’re not that pretty.:) So I decided to try to make them a little easier on the eyes with some burlap, lace, ribbon and paper!

I think this top one is my favorite!

Ahoy Ring

I got the silly idea to make a knotted twine ring with a button on top. It kinda worked! I had the perfect thing for it too, it’s actually a button cover. I love how it turned out!
