If you follow me on Facebook, then you know I was incredibly distraught last week when my camera decided to erase all the photos on my SD card. No, I don't back them up on my computer right away. I typically leave all photos for one blog post on there until it's time to write the post so I don't transfer the photos and then forget about it (that's been known to happen).
Well, today is the day where you get to see the finished products, but not the long-lost "during" photos. Therefore there's no step-by-step, no funny photo of me with a 12 foot long piece of fabric around my neck, no photos of me ironing on the Pellon 808 fusible interfacing (which was so fun btw). It's a sad day, indeed.
I'll call this post: Pinterest Projects That Previously Provided Pleasant Periods of Painstaking Production
Hey, I do the best I can with the Ps I'm given.
First up, the Bow Clutch, as pinned here:
And my version...
The gray chevron with the yellow lining is kinda cute, right?
It only took a few hours, start to finish. I'm seriously thinking about whipping up a few more in different colors. It was so fun!
Secondly, the Anthro Akela knock-off necklace, as seen here:
And my version, in navy blue...
Basically, sew a big long tube, insert beads, tie knots, sew on some fabric circles, and voila!
Thirdly, the Pom Pom Bib necklace, as seen here:
And my version, using Steven's old t-shirts that were in the rag pile in the basement:
This was my second attempt at this necklace, and I'm still not totally crazy about it. I think I need even smaller circles. I do love the look of it on the chain, though!
So that's it. A few "after" photos with no "befores." Hope you found this as thrilling as I did.
