Craft Tutorial: Ribbon & Rhinestone Bracelet

Craft Tutorial: Ribbon & Rhinestone Bracelet
Craft Tutorial: Ribbon & Rhinestone Bracelet 1

I’ve been eyeing on pretty bracelets that combine friendship bracelets and rhinestones for quite some time (like, hello, gorgeous creations of Frieda & Nellie), and I wanted to try making one myself – without making a friendship bracelet (because I’m such a bum). I finally decided to make some with my own twist, and my ‘twist’ shall be translated as being lazy :) So, if you have pretty ribbon scraps in your craft stash (you’ll only need about 10cm), now is the time to prettify them!

While I was gone…

Cath Kidston Crochet Kit

Hello sweets! I know, I sincerely apologise for the absence in the past 10 days or so. My lovely computer broke down (which I’ll explain in detail at the end of the post, for those of you who use 13inch MacBook Pro, 2009 model) but it’s now fixed, alive and kicking. So, what have I been doing while my ‘brain’ wasn’t working? Read More

Craft Tutorial: Triple Chevron Necklace

Craft Tutorial: Triple Chevron Necklace

As I made Pearl & Tube Necklace in the previous post, I was determined to make another necklace that I could layer it with. Also, I had some leftover gold tubes – my head was spinning with ideas for a while, and then this idea of chevron necklace came to me. Yes, I always wanted a chevron necklace but couldn’t decide what sort of chevron I wanted to wear (girls have too many choices these days, ey?). So, if you’re a chevron lover and want a pretty one with minimal effort, this project is right up your street :) Read More

Craft Tutorial: Pearl & Tube Necklace

Craft Tutorial: Pearl & Tube Necklace

Hello Sweets! I’m really excited to share you my first craft tutorial in 2013 today – I chose freshwater pearls (yes, you guys must already know how much I love pearls!) and gold tubes that I picked up last year but couldn’t think of any use (you can see bracelets that use similar tubes in this tutorial). It may sound like an odd combination (well, at least for me it sounded weird first) but I think they are a match made in heaven, these pearls and tubes :) So… ready for the tutorial?

Anthropologie Knockoff Tutorial: Piccadilly Drops

Anthropologie Knockoff Tutorial: Piccadilly Drops

Hello Sweets! Yes, the final countdown for Christmas Day has started, and I can almost hear the echoing sound of clock ticking…! I always wonder (like, every year) why I feel like Christmas Day is running towards me in ‘sorry Usain Bolt, you’re simply too slow’ sort of speed, no matter how well prepared I am. Or maybe no one can really prepare enough for the big day, I don’t know!

Anyways, today’s Anthro knockoff is perfect for a last-ditch attempt to sort out all the gift making – it’s quick, easy and pretty :) Read More

Craft Tutorial: Quickest & Easiest Pom Pom Trim

Craft Tutorial: Quickest & Easiest Pom Pom Trim

Happy Monday, sweets! I know I’ve been having a pom pom overload since last week (like this and this), but I swear to you, this post would be the last one… well, at least for 2012 :)

I’ve been seeing so many pom pom projects and products over the internet, and one of the things that I definitely wanted to make was pom pom trims and garlands. They are very easy and simple to make, but… no, I didn’t have enough time to indulge myself into becoming a pom pom making machine.

So… if you are short of time like me (I mean, who wouldn’t be at this time of the year?), but want to adorn your gifts or/and house with pom pom trims, follow my easiest and quickest tutorial ever! Read More

Craft Tutorial: Pom Pom Tree

Craft Tutorial: Pom Pom Tree

Hello sweets! Have you finished embellishing your house with Christmas decorations yet? Well, I hadn’t even started yet until yesterday – no, I wasn’t been lazy (ok, maybe I was). We live in a little cottage, more than 150 yeas old, and everything is in very small scale – and unfortunately, we don’t have a proper mantel (well, there is one but it’s so narrow that I can’t really dress it up). So I had to come up with an alternative solution and decided to lay my Christmasy soul and ideas on a tiny space on a bookshelf. And what do I need for a tiny space? A tiny Christmas tree, of course!

Craft Tutorial: Glass Stone Earrings 1

Have you started preparing for Christmas gifts? I actually have (surprise!) but they were, sadly, all still in my head (not so surprise now, right?), and I was getting jittery with the prospect of panic gift shopping/making/wrapping. Yes, you know the choky feeling! So, today I’m going to crack on with making some easy earrings that your girlfriends (and yourself) would love. Ready for the tutorial? Read More
