I am back like promised with a quick mini jewelry thrift haul, we went to Eugene's Picc-A-Dilly Flea Market on Saturday and I walked away with vintage fabric fat quarters, some buttons, lace and jewelry! Sorry for the pictures not being the best, for whatever reason I grabbed the Nikon I let the kids use instead of my Canon and took these quick in our dark cave like bedroom.
|Cute Vintage (Bakelite?) turquoise and Rhinestone silver earrings. I actually wore these to work today! $1|
|A simple short silver necklace, thick enough it might not break if the baby grabs it for a second. $1|
|Hot pink hoops with dangling stars-missing one hook and the other was....well...crusty with rust. $1|
|These are from the sewing booth...I know they are some sort of notion but not sure what-metal toggle closure maybe? I got these wanting to make earring out of them $1.50|
|I put new hooks on both after cleaning the dangling parts well :) Such an easy fix! I keep extra hooks etc findings with my beading supplies just for finds like these.|
|And the unknown sewing notions turned into earrings! What do you think?|
I also got a rhinestone and silver ring that I am wearing but haven't managed to get a good picture of I think I will try tomorrow in natural light with the flash off. I am always trying to improve my photography skills.
Now on to the Country Girl Hair flower! I make hair flower clips and broaches all the time out of silk and fabric flowers feather etc. but I came across this great No Sew Fabric Flower Tutorial From Craftberry Bush
And decided to whip up a fabric flower real quick from my scrap bag, the fabric was chosen because I liked the colors and it wasn't fraying much at all.
|A Country themed fabric scrap in pink blue mint and white.|
|Even though I used Craftberry's Petal cutting technique I didn't starch and I sewed the petals together. The glue is to fix the felt and clip to the flowers really securely since I work out in the weather and it's hard on the flowers.|
|This is the true colors of the flowers-I made one main flowers with a heart shaped flowery button in the center and 2 flowers on each side off center just to add more oomph. One is bigger and one is a bit smaller to vary things up a bit.|
|Here is the center isn't that vintage button the cutest? Makes me wish I had a little girl!|
Any particular one you might like to see a tutorial on? Any colors? With or without feathers? Let me know dears :)
Have a wonderful day!
