Craft Tutorial: Collar Brooch

Craft Tutorial: Collar Brooch

I’ve been meaning to make collar brooches for quite some time, and today I finally managed to make quick and easy one using earrings. My mother-in-law gave me the earrings a few months ago, and I’ve been trying to find a way to wear them other than as earrings (they were unfortunately too heavy for my ears). So, if you have stud-type earrings (or clip-on ones) that you want to upcycle, give it a try! Read More

Upcycle Old T-shirts into Jewelry:
Guest Post from HEARTing Handmade

Happy Monday, sweets! Today I have a super fun tutorial for you, guest posted by Maša, a lovely Slovenian blogger from HEARTing Handmade.

If you are new to HEATing Handmade, check out Maša’s weekly roundup of giveaways (she’s done all the hard work of finding crazy cool giveaways for you so you could enter something everyday!), discover her literature love and book giveaways, and learn her personal journey and the reason why I find her the bravest woman I’ve ever met (although not in person yet!).

So… enjoy the upcycle tutorial :)

Hi there! I’m Maša from HEARTing Handmade and I’m very excited to be a guest of Emi’s today! :)

I have a passion for repurposing old things that usually end up in the dumpster at the end of their life. I found two shirts I used to really enjoy wearing, but have become too worn out to be used anymore. So I made yarn from them which I will use for making fashion accessories. Making yarn from old clothes is the simplest thing in the world! I’ll also show you how to make a really simple choker, even if you have never made jewelry in your life (no equipment needed). So the good news is that you already have everything you need for this project!
