Pretty ‘New’ Trinkets

October 2, 2009

I received the latest J. Crew catalog in the mail the other day and immediately stopped what I was doing to spend a few quiet minutes drooling over how they’ve styled their Fall ’09 looks. So gorgeous!

While I’d dearly love to snap up a gazillion dollars worth of J. Crew goodness…it’s not in the cards this year. So, I decided to do the next best thing–make something I already have work! I purchased this necklace at da-da-da-daaaaa: Walmart for about $5 a couple years ago, and it just wasn’t sitting right with me as-is. It’s cute-ish, but just a little too bulky and blah at the same time:

I fiddled with the necklace until it had the drape I wanted, then tacked black grosgrain ribbons to the links:

And just for fun, I attempted a little self-portait. (OK, that was harder than I thought it would be!) I’m LOVING my new trinket, especially the fact that it cost nothing and took literally minutes to do!

Back to sewing now…I’ve got some fun things to share soon!
