Good news: for my fellow JAFAs - is anyone else as stoked about the weather as I am? My pasty legs are seeing the sun once again and it feels insanely good. Also stopping work = lots of down time. With my e-learning classes on the last week, discovering UK skins (does anyone else love this show so much especially with the initial cast?), I am DIY-ing like a mad woman. Thought I'd share my first planning sketches for two projects that are almost nearly done.
I saw a tutorial based on a LV collar look-a-like on HonestlyWTF a while back here and kept on the top of my DIY list, not to mention I was already dead keen on doing a DIY thanks to the magic of Rookie here. So it only made sense that when I got time, I came up with this almost puritanical color template juxtaposed with hilarious stick-on googly eyes that honestly used to scare me as a kid pulled together on a shiny ribbon at the back. I swear this is the simplest DIY if you have a nice shiny pair of fabric scissors and felt (the material used in the tutorial and in my design) is ridiculously cheap to buy too. :)
I know - you're thinking how can you be over velvet pink litas (even if they are anonymous knock-offs) right? But the truth is that these are just getting a little tame for my liking so I took the plunge and went for a very lolita-on-her-giant-frou-frou-wedding look by creating a bouquet at the back with a little lace detailing just above the heel and added just a little sparkle with left over pearl studs from my collar decoration. I'm about halfway through the process and I LOVE how they look so far! These will be the perfect spring addition for the 13 days of spring I have left!
So excited to show you all the results :)
Is anyone else doing a little DIYing before heading back to school for fall?
