i love textile jewelry

i badly wanted to buy a piece from this amazing etsy shop for my mom who is a real sucker for all things colorful (good thing she doesn’t know about this blog otherwise i’d be ruining the surprise) but totally couldn’t afford it.

so i had no choice but to make it myself. or that’s what i told myself deciding to skip cooking a proper dinner the other night…

other than that i returned to work from my maternity leave
and keep being inventive with various household devices on zero budget and environmental awareness in mind:

maybe looks weird but quite efficient

on a random note: being introvert is exhausting, remind me not to go on these saturday picnics with 15 little children covered in mud running around with sharp branches….

 

take care

and happy christmas to you all

D9CCBFC6-3CBB-4DB6-935B-1D3DD7A37277

it involved: old cupboard shelf

a piece of an old towel

a piece of an old nightie (for the slipcover)

a staple gun+staples, borrowed from colleague

an old shoelace

old rubber band

easy to make

portable

heavy enough to be convenient to use

all materials recycled/repurposed, nothing bought new

now go and make one for yourself. instant gratification, i’m telling you 🙂

p.s pay attention to something weird in the photos. someone made an unexpected appearance 🙂

 

until next time
