Did any of you join the overnight queue that formed at the first H&M opening in Singapore today? It’s amazing what fashion can do to people huh? I was nowhere near and anyway, prefer to avoid the crowd for I can’t shop when I see too many people. So today’s post is definitely not about H&M but it’s about a DIY fabric flower bracelet tutorial. Yes, my DIY interest has still not waned.
It seems like I might just start a regular feature on DIY fashion. Well, after the first project of DIY t-shirt scarf, necklace & bracelet, I’ve been hooked since. It’s really fun to get creative and I’ve been scouring around for more ideas, including looking up some books in the library.
The thing about DIY fashion or some call it reconstruction fashion is, you’re really recycling materials and so it’s really eco-friendly. Some of the materials are even considered junk, like these that I use for this project.
I used to store my earrings in a jewelry box but found it less than ideal. A few times, I got my earrings mixed up when I was in a hurry and ended up wearing different earrings! So I thought I better try to get them stored in a way that I can access them quickly without any mixed up. And I was really happy to find this good quality plastic cross stitch mat at the household section of Takashimaya which is excellent to hold all my hook earrings. Actually, I prefer it over using sushi mats because the visual effect is better.
