My room reeks heavily of leather because of this giant box of scrap leather pieces, but I don't mind it so much because it smells of DIY productivity! For the past few days I've been tracing and cutting leather discs, cutting smaller holes within each disc, and sewing them onto a cardigan. My fingers feel a bit tender from the prying and cutting, but I'm convincing myself that it'll be worth it in the end when I have re-created thisfor far less than $320. MUAHAHA. I've also cut enough leather discs for 2 of these jackets. So when the time comes, I'll be giving one away to a reader.
Just a preview of the jacket I've started and mah big face. Many more blistered fingers to go.
follow for follow? x
really similar to my favourite sequin cardigan.
where did you get your leather scraps from... oh and where did you bulk by the wedding diamante necklaces from?
Love love your blog. xxxxxx
as for the rhinestone necklaces, i bought them in bulk on ebay as well. however, i like to use vintage rhinestone pieces (estate sales, etsy...) for the nicer projects.
hope this helps
