This is what happens when I'm bored. Originally I was going to sew lace around the sleeves of a new velvet top i bought in a charity shop, however I couldn't find any at home, so i ordered some off ebay so hopefully that DIY can be done next week! This one is so simple to do, all you need is:
1. Old pearl necklace
2. cream coloured thread
3. A needle
I used a denim jacket from a charity shop for £3.
First, cut the thread off your necklace (unless you already have loose pearls) and if you don't have one you can pick one up in primark for little to nothing! and tie a knot at the end of your thread so the pearls stay firmly in place.
Then, put the needle up through the point on the collar where you want your first pearl to be. Thread the needle through the pearl and then back through the point you started with. (You can repeat it if you feel the need)
|You will end up with something like this...|
Repeat this process until you have finished sewing. then to finish, loop back through your last stick a few times and full firmly. Cut the remaining thread off, and you're done!
|I might add another row of pearls!|
Any questions, please ask girlies! And if you've done anything similar or have any tips I'd love to see them!
Hope you enjoyed! xxx
