DIY Statement Sequinned Calligraphy

IMG_1682.JPG

Now this is a DIY that is so chic and easy it will turn water into watermelon! Ok not really…but it’s an instant fashion update without the couture price tag. In time for Fashion Week?…I think so!

What you need:

  • Stringed Sequin
  • Your Garment
  • Chalk
  • Paper or Cardboard
  • Glue (Hot glue or fabric)

You can also just handstitch the letters on which would be estimated double the time this glue virion takes however the sewing method has more staying power when washed…just saying.

First! Lay your garment flat placing your paper or cardboard INSIDE the clothing (to prevent the glue seeping though and sticking up the garment till the point you gotta tear it open to wear it) and chalk out what you wanna express in your best fancy man writing.

Second! Get your stringed sequins and follow the writing neatly (as possible) gluing as you go along. There should be no need to cut any sequins as it should be a continuous line except when you finish or have more than one thing to express.

Third! Wait till glue is dry and sequins are firmly on, then wear that baby to the moon and back!

If I’ve missed out anything, have anything else creative to add to this DYI How To or just like it please Comment and Like if you Love it!

Happy DYI’ing!

Cute Cape DIY

Today I was on Pinterest and came across these cute Capes, one thing lead to another and there I was sewing away! I followed this simple picture (below) which basically told me everything.

Now is the time to make your own! Best of all you can have any length (and it will be still called a Cape) and it will fit (mostly) all sizes! Give it a go and I’ll show you mine that I made when I’ve finished it! Trust me it’s easy! Get creative! Now here’s some pictures to get inspired!

So I hope you liked it and gave you inspiration to go and buy ANYTHING you like and make it your own! As you can see I don’t like dress sizes telling what to wear!

Today at the Catford Broadway Market…

catford-right_column (1)

On my way to work I saw the most coolest pop-up stalls along the Broadway in Catford as indepedant traders sell thier homemade and or handmade treasures every 1st Sunday of the month!

Today there was about 5-6 stalls open and my eyes were drawn towards two. One stall was selling yummy homemade chutney, tiny French Macaroons, Scones and Jams. Her name is Uli and she was very nice as she was kindly selling her yummy homemade treats with her beautiful daughter which I thought was very cute! I so badly wanted to buy more but I ran out of money which will hunt me throughout my sleep until I buy her jams! (This is what’s playing in my head “I should have got a Scone, I should have got a Scone, I should have got a Scone, I should have got a Scone, WHY DIDN’T YOU GET A SCONE!”)

Uli's Jam, Chutney and Scones!

The other stall sold eye-catching crafty handmade cards, crochet brooches and beaded earrings. Lucy Morton (guessing that’s her name from the pretty business card) was very nice and her cards are so lovely, giving someone you care about something handmade with love says a lot and at her quality of handmade work you can see the love.
