Hello Blog World,
Carrying on from my AWESOME Sunday with my daughter after we made this sign for her room.
We went and did lunch as ladies do, and to get some supplies, we needed some wire for this fantastic bracelet we found surfing the net over at another Michelle’s Blog, Mich L. in L.A, Tiana is obsessed with bracelets, friendship bracelets, those litter rubber bands you get from charities, basically anything that will go around her wrist! So she wanted to make one
Here is Michelle’s fantastic version
And after finding out we didn’t have any jeans in the rag bag we did find a pair of my husbands old work pants which are navy blue and had a nice leg seam, we fiddled around with scissors and wire (all I could get is memory wire, WOW that stuff is hard to work with) and the seam of the pants and finally got our version.
Ok so mine is a little bit scrappier than Michelle’s but Tiana is very pleased with the results, and since the pic was taken I have snipped off a few of those thready bits.
Well she wasn’t content with one, so we found an old pair of white denim shorts in the bag, fiddled around again with the scissors, the wire, the beads and the seam and came up with this version…
I had some alphabet beads, so she had to add the T & J for Tiana Jayde, I like the personal touch she chose.
Being that this seam came from shorts and not pants it’s not as long as I would like but overall it’s still good and more importantly Tiana likes it and wears it.
So Check out Michelle’s Blog, she has some beautiful jewellery and ideas. It is well worth the visit.
Ok so I am off to the airport now, wish me luck, you will still be seeing posts from me over the next 10 days, including my weekly update on the healthy lifestyle change and some old crafts of mine, you will be able to judge how far I have come, until then happy crafting.
