DIY Wednesdays!





This is a DIY shrug/jacket that iv'e been meaning to show you for sometime...It is white and has a shiny-silver sequin pattern!

How did I make it? 
  • I had an old white tee lying around for ages..
  • I reduced its length and hemmed the bottom edges.
  • I cut it through the middle to make it front open..
  • Sewed on a silver edged lace on the middle 2 edges
  • Collected Glittery Silver Sequins in 2 sizes
  • Made an abstract symmetric pattern on the front
  • Stuck em on with Fabric Glue!
You can make plenty of casual jackets in this manner-its so much fun! And you may play around with matching lace at the edges, or customize it with buttons or sequins like I did! Or leave it plain!

And your old favorite tees get recycled into something new and unique!

I had to iron the shrug on the reverse to make the fabric-glue fast, and the sequins kind of semi-melted with the heat, and got a bit twisty and curled up a bit! But the effect was much better and natural, i think:)Talk of beneficial accidents!








So when are you'll gonna make your own customized shrugs?:)


Love,
Shubhi!

I love when bloggers show creative projects like this!I love the way it came out! Very nice!

I don't know if I have the skills or patience though. I remember me and my mom made a nice little vest thing one time but it took us so long to make it (we kept getting busy with other stuff), that by the time we finished, it didn't really fit me anymore! lol
