Been crafting...

I was up last night rummaging around in my ribbon box and made a couple of things...



I'm really getting into recycled crafts now, the bows on the clips were made from bra straps! (which sounds a little..ewww, they're washed though..)

If I'm throwing something out that doesn't fit or I don't need anymore, I'm always trying to think If I can make something out of it. I suppose it makes it unique, fair enough you can find clips pretty much identical to these, but they won't have been made out of bra straps from la senza ;] Downside is I only have enough left for one more pair :/

I also have a pair of pretty shabby chic-ish primark pj bottoms that had size 16 on the hanger but turned out to be a size 8-10 so I'm thinking of what I can do with those.


The corsage was made from some leftover wired ribbon and my last bit of grosgrain, and the ladybird was from a card crafting set I got from clintons. I wanna get through all my scraps then search out some nice ribbons/bit 'n' bobs and get down to serious crafting so I can open my little online shoppy woppy :]

QUESTION: What do you think of accessories made from (washed) bras/corsets? (pls note that I wouldn't use knickers...that's just wrong on so many different levels)

well i think that's a great idea and if you can make accessories from bra's and stuff like that it's great, especially if they have little bows or glitters :)
