This is one of my favourite DIYs so far, just because you only really need 3 things to make this. Like when recipes just have a few ingredients, they're my favourite! So, here's what I did:
I gathered together an old t-shirt, a few beads and a scissors. I cut 8 strips from the t-shirt (about 2cm wide, they're curl up and get narrower as you're working with them). One strip needs to be a little longer than the rest (this is the one that goes around your neck and mine was 50cm long). The other 7 were 25cm long.
Next, I threaded beads onto both ends of the long strip and tied two knots to secure the beads. I left about 5cm at both ends for tying more knots.
Then, one by one I started adding the small strips to both ends of the long strip with a knot. When you're done, you're going to have a messy pile of knots so for a more finished look I wrapped the last two strips around these knots and tucked the very end in under the coil I made.
Ta-dah! A new necklace and it didn't even cost a penny! I love it and I've already planned my next one, chunkier with turquoise fabric.
At the moment, I'm spending lots of hours (mostly after Nancy's bedtime!) online. I have photos to upload for the online store, listing the items, keeping up to date with my Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest accounts and then some blogging here.
When all this is looked after (and sometimes when it's not but I need a break!), this is where you'll find me:
Prowlster - A great place to shop, really interesting interviews, you'll never be bored here.
This is why I'm broke is awesome! I've bookmarked too many items now that I want to buy as gifts for people.
Wish Wish Wish is a blog that's new on my list. Her style is so feminine and her photos are just perfect.
Then there's the usual blogs I read like this, this and this one. And most of the time there's some album on YouTube playing in the background. I try to take one night off a week from all of this. Yes, just one night. And I struggle with it. Too much? Too little? I'm not sure what's normal anymore!
My little red figaro (Ruby is her name!) has been a bit sick for the last few months but I got it back just in time for the summer. Nothing beats driving in this little red car, with good weather and some cheesy 80's tunes!
Here's what I wore on my first adventure with Ruby again!
