Good day all! Â It is a rainy fall day here in Arkansas! Â Looks like it is trying to flood us! I really don’t mind the rain sometimes, today, however it is aiding my narcolepsy in kicking my eyes closed! Â It’s okay though, my brothers are home (recent additions to the Zoo) and they will keep me entertained, stimulated, and awake! Â I am so thankful for my baby brother! Â He hasn’t always done right, but he has always loved me and made me smile!
Well, enough of the random thoughts! Â On to my latest project! Â We are doing homemade gifts for Christmas, so I am making all sorts of things. Â I decided to try my hand at making a jewelry hanging for a friend, so here it goes!
DIY Upcycled & Fabulous!
My picture didn’t get the top, but I used ribbon sewn to the top to hang it, which is why it’s slumped in at the top. Â I was going to use wire, but I couldn’t find my wire cutters.
I made the ring holder using scrapbook rings, but there again I was going to use wire…. Â The Â piece that holds the ring holder on is sewn directly to the fabric so it won’t come off, hence using something that could be unclipped.
I did them like you would a pillow, layering the front of the material to front of material, then the middle backing on the top. Â Sew it around 3 sides then flip it right side out. Â Fold in the top halves and sew shut.
I took the part to hold necklaces/bracelets and sewed it directly onto the fabric. Â Once I got it where I wanted it, I buttoned the button to figure out where to do the top. Â It’s made so that you can pull the button hole material up.
I sewed the button hole material on the top only, leaving enough on the ends (about one to two inches) to overlap so that I could fold it over. Â I used fabric glue on the back so that there wouldn’t be anymore seams.
Here are some other DIY gift ideas you can do! I love handmade gifts, receiving and giving them!
I would love to hear your ideas for homemade gifts! Â I’ll be posting more as the days creep up to Christmas! Â Which reminds me, I have a tab of things full of Christmas stuff, gifts decor etc is my goal to fill it! Â Stop by and check it out!
Remember, entrance to the Zoo is free so long as you don’t feed the animals! Â I’ve found that once you feed them, they want to stay! Â (Plus some of them bite, but we’ll talk about that later!)
