A few sewing projects I've been up to
Isn't this so pretty? The base is actually real fur, which came from my great grandmother's fur coat.
All I did was stitch a long line of fur, attach some elastic, and glued on a flower from one of my shirts.
If you're interested in making it, you can ask me to explain more in depth. :)
(excuse my blah hair ;_;)
I've always wanted one of those cute Japanese bath headbands, so I decided to make one my self!
It was really easy, since I found the base somewhere in my house (originally an ear warmer). All I did to make the bow was sew a rectangle and wrap it around the base.
Both projects were actually reconstructed, since they all came from old clothes.
I find it amazing how ugly, unwanted clothes can turn into beautiful new things!
(hehe, I think that's why I'm hoarding too many of me and my mom's unwanted clothes)
I really need to preach this more, but sewing is not only for old people!
