Earrings in a frame

_MG_4207 copia

This is a simple project, but very versatile and of a big impact. 

I was looking for a place where I could keep my earrings orderly, and then I found this brand new frame I bought some time ago.

What I did is easy and fast.

What you need:

Take off the back of the frame and place your pieces of string on the back side using a tape. Be careful to push it a bit following the design of the frame, otherwise when you’ll set all the pieces together it will pull and tear out.

Choose the distance you like according to the size of your earrings (I choosed 7 cm from each string).

Then put the frame back together adding on the front a coloured sheet. My sheet is a light pink one made out of recycled paper.

It is versatile because you can either place it on a forniture or hang it on the wall!

A few days ago I felt like sewing a doll for my daughter and I found this free pattern from Martha Stewart which I think is super cute!!!

I like the drawing of the girl hair, but my daughter wanted a boy, that’s why I sewed two!

(Actually they are so funny to make that I could go over and over and make thousands of them…:) )

By printing the pattern Martha says to enlarge 150%, but I did only 120% and I suggest you not to print it smaller otherwise the arms and the legs will be way too difficult to turn inside out once sewed.

My daughter of course choosed their names (and put them to sleep in her doll bed as soon as they were ready :D).

Here you are…





For the boy I modified the pattern myself, by drawing the inside of the pants and by erasing the hair sides of the girl.
