something different



I thought I might have a go at embellishing myself -well why not I embellish everything else.

So I made myself this fabric choker from scraps in my sewing room.


The first day I wore it as a choker.

The second day I wore it as a headband.

And then I made a pin to go with it :)


Very pretty. Very easy. 

And altho it looks old and shabby, it is made from everything new.

I have been asked to teach a one day class and have been trying to think of something easy and fun for the girls to make. What do you think? Any good?

Have you tried embellishing yourself lately?

Amazing piece, it's beautiful. If you had not said, I would have thought everything you used was vintage.

Your choker come head band is so sweet and shabby, I love it. I'd love to do a workshop with you to make this - planning to visit the UK?? I never have time to adorn myself, a serious flaw as I could use all the adornment I can get, lol x
