There is just something about reusing beautiful things that you already have on hand to make something else that's even more beautiful. I paired a favorite (but getting boring) tank top with a bracelet that I had laying around for years...and what a difference!
Things you will need:
- Any clothing piece (tank top, dress, belt etc.)
- Unused jewelry pieces
- Felt fabric
This is the tank top that I have used to the point where it's had it's days! It's screaming for a makeover!
I picked a piece of jewelry that I loved as a bracelet but I had it for years but never really wore it with any of my outfits-It was just pretty to look at in the jewelry box (pile).
It is held together with an elastic thread so it was very easy to cut and remove the pieces.
It has amazing colors that I could not capture with my camera...
First, figure out where and how you would like to attach your gem pieces on your tank top. Play around with it.
I liked this design.
These gem pieces were really hard to hand stitch on because of the 4 holes underneath the gems. That was a huge pain so I decided to do it another way (much easier way).
I placed my flower pattern onto felt fabric and traced the shape and cut it out-choose a color of felt that blends well with the gems and the fabric of the tank top.
I love getting comments, feel free to leave me one or forward this to EVERYONE!
