Second post today, but I just have to show off  this choker thingie that I made when I got home.

It is a little big, and it needs adjustments, but I am really pleased with how it turned out, even though I know it is too big for anybodies neck : )
 First, I would like to show you how really really simple it is. I only used black fabric, white fabric and hot glue: )
The bottom does not have to be completely round, no one will notice, unless its made of cardboard or plastic. The strip can be as wide as you want it. The wider it is, the more 3D the rosette will be. I usually bend it on the middle and glue the ugly ends together, so that you can only see the bend when it is done. If you have fabric that doesnt tare, it can be pretty if you just leave it, and bend it, to show the edges.

Here comes the fun part:


Prettier poser <3

I think it may need an upgrade in fabric, and then some pearls or rhinestones well well, I am off to see Alice in Wonderland it is shown (legally) in Denmark, for the first time tonight : ) Hope its good! Dont you dare let me down Johnny and Burton!
Oh, need to show you this
I made a green rose, and then I wanted to take pictures. For some reason my crappy crappy camera makes the olivegreen fabric look like gold. It was too beautiful for me to keep for myself : ) my boyfriend thinks customers may be unsatisfied if they bought this and got a green one, but I think its just creative lighting. Wink

Have a good evening! (or morning, or wherever you live)

The tute was VERY necessary!! I am no where near smart enough to have figured it out!

Personally, I tried to figure it out myself, but failed miserably... then my dear mother came and told me how she used to make them all the time. Soooo embarrassing
