Craft Tutorial: Beaded Hair Scrunchies

Beaded Hair Scrunchies

First of all, my hearty apologies to my dear readers for not posting much these days. I was head-banging a thick, cold blogging wall – although I was happily creating something pretty much everyday, when I questioned myself if they were blog-worthy or not, sadly the answers always seemed to be ‘no’. I’m still head-banging the wall, but hey, here I am with a bloody forehead :)

Let’s move on to my darling new hair scrunchies, shall we? I love both making and wearing hair scrunchies, and since my hair is now long enough to actually wear one, I decided to make new versions (you can find other scrunchie posts here and here). They are both pretty straightforward to make, and I think they would be a cute little present for Mother’s Day, too.

Les Nereides Knockoff Tutorial;
Pom Pom Bracelet

Pom Pom Bracelet

I’m a huge fan of Les Nereides, a quirky French jewellery brand. I usually drool over their creations in front of my computer screen and sigh – sigh of admiration and agony, because 1) they are so damn pretty, 2) damn expensive and 3) most of them are impossible for me to recreate. But then I found a cute collection the other day that looked simple enough for me to do the knockoff. Yes!! Read More

Craft Tutorial; Plastic Animal Pin Cushion

Pin Cushion 1

Hello there! As you can see in the photo above, today’s tutorial is something that’s going to make you smile – llama and pin cushion, what’s there not to smile about :) Of course, it doesn’t have to be llama; any plastic animals that are stashed in your drawers or kids’ toy box, now is the time for them to be in the limelight!

* As I am writing this, I found out that my dear llama is actually an alpaca…! Poor alpaca, he is not supposed to work like llamas, no? Too late now! Read More

Hello lovelies! I can’t believe that it’s Friday already… I’ve been busy trying to finish off some projects all week – 30% success, and the rest didn’t turn out as I hoped. Oh well, I’ll live. Anyway, my personal craft crisis aside, today’s tutorial is Marc by Marc Jacobs ‘inspired’ bow ring. The reason why it’s not a knockoff is… well, you’ll see. Read More

Craft Tutorial: Raindrop Necklace

Raindrop Necklace

Do you like rainy days? I’m not so much of a fan – come on, living in the UK (rainy most of the time) and growing up in Japan (rainy season should be illegal. Really), I think I’ve had enough rainy days a person should experience in a lifetime. But still… I don’t know why but there are something very charming about raindrops and clouds in product design. So, today, I’m making a knockoff necklace that I found via Pinterest. Read More
