The second blog post in two days?! You can tell I have some extra time on my hands!
Happy Boxing day, everyone! I hope you're all enjoying some well deserved time off. I myself decided to be a bit more active than I was yesterday following my turkey-induced coma, and had a go at branching out into something a bit different. Well, for me and Swell Vintage at least!
I cut the sleeves off a dress I bought recently (it looked better this way), and ever since I'd been wanting to do something with them.
So today I sat down with my sewing box, and had a go at turning them into corsages. I used a vintage rhinestone broach on one, and on the other a vintage do-dad I'd picked up somewhere along the way. Et voila! (Sorry, I've been watching a LOT of Poirot these past couple of days...):
Now I haven't actually put a back on either of these, but I'm thinking of putting a simple broach clip on the back of each - but what are your thoughts? Do you have any ideas what I could do with these? Most of the lovely people who read my blog are a lot more talented and creative than I am, so any suggestions are welcome!
Also, to show off, my sister got me a really handy stand for my jewellery for Christmas:
Looks much better than the way I was keeping them before - lying on my printer!
What lovely gifts have you received this year?
