Ready for the Tea Party

29 April 2011

I have a bunch of sewn stuff that I’m actually willing to sell. I’ve been hesitant to sell some of the stuff I’ve made because I’m still trying to improve my sewing machine skills. But these pass my high standards so now I allow myself to share these with you. Besides, though I love what I made, they aren’t really my style so I probably wouldn’t use them myself. It’d be better if somebody else does πŸ™‚

They’re sort of in a similar theme, I imagine wearing these to a picnic or a tea party (hence the title). We don’t do tea parties here where I come from :p

1. Granny Cardi(gan) – The cardigan is an extremely rarely used piece (I have a blue one and I use that). I think I’ve only used it twice. It was bought many, many years ago at Cinderella; cream colored with a golden sheen; is fastened only by a hook at the collar; size: small (my beautiful measurements here). I added the ruffles and the hem which are repurposed elastic lace and stretchy beige fabric.

2. Scruffled Necklace – The necklace is made of a dark brown knit cord, elastic lace (same as the one on the cardigan) and printed cotton (and a beige button). What’s great about it is that you can wear it in different ways by knotting the cord, so you can wear it long, short, or even as a choker. Heck, you could even use it as a headband (I just thought of this now).

3. Colla-Flora Headband – This is made of Β scrap fabric, a button and a plastic headband all hot-glued together. Subtle in color, but big in size. And the big, red button is an adorable finishing touch.
