1  Googly shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by Taratara on: May 10, 2012 10:20:01 AM
Hello everybody
I really want to show you my latest project!

Yesterday I decorated this shirt

I just glued the eyes on with a glue gun, so I probably need to wash it by hand.
Please tell me what you think! Cheesy

2  Pearl necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Taratara on: March 04, 2012 02:28:49 AM

I made this necklace and i figured it out myself. If you want me to make a tutorial, tell me, and I'll try to make one Smiley

Here is a picture of me wearing it:

I was inspired by this picture, and thought I could make one myself:

The picture is from this blog: http://passionsforfashion.dk/

Please tell me what you think! Smiley

Here comes the tutorial:

You need a scissor, pearls and 8 meters of string. Cut the 8 meters in to 4 X 2 meters. Here it might be easiest to roll the strings together and fasten it with a rubber band.

Tie the four strings together with a knot

Lay the strings on your hand like this.

Put the first string over the second, and the second over the third, and the third over the fourth.

Then put the fourth string under the first, like this.

Pull each string, and it will look like this

Do it over again

Make it as long as you want to, mine is about 5 centimeters

Put a pearl on every string

like this :-)

now braid again

and pull the ends

put four more pearls on, and braid again

braid until it is as long as you want it. (It might stretch a bit when you wear it, if the pearls are a bit heavy)

now braid again, like you did in the start

tie a knot in the end

and you are finished!

Please tell me if there is something you don't understand, and I will try to explain it better. It really isn't difficult to make, when you first try it! :-)

3  Braide necklace in Trinkets and Jewelry: Completed Projects: General by Taratara on: March 02, 2012 02:04:44 AM

My very first post, I hope you like it!

I made this necklace some days ago, and I think it turned out pretty well

I made it with help from this tutorial: http://www.moredesignplease.com/moredesignplease/2011/7/5/diy-braided-necklace.html

It is simple to make, and I just used a couple of hours in front of the television, making it. What do you think?
