This is a set I have made out of recycled lace, so it is a refashion project.

This vintage looking creamy lace flower jewelry set is fitting for many occasions. It consists of a three flower lace brooch with pink and creamy large bead in the center. It has a large ring with the adjustable size base and a lace bracelet both adorn with pink and creamy beads and rolled lace flowers. The ring and the bracelet flowers are little less than one inch wide in size.

The lace flower brooch is about two inches in size. The brooch flowers are adjusted to a piece of white and sparkling recycled belt and have a pin on the other side. This handmade jewelry set is appropriate for a wedding or any other special occasion

Part of the flowers here are rolled out of lace. The set looks vintage and very sophisticated. You may find it in my Etsy shop recycledcrafting.

Handmade jewelry project: a ring and a pendent


This is one of my handmade jewelry projects. Unfortunately I do not have much time to cover them all in my blog. This fabric ring and pendent are the part of one of my refashion projects.

I have bought a pair of huge and ugly green pants at a flea market. I looked exactly like Asterix in them. But I refashioned them into a stylish skirt and a handbag. I had some scrapes left, so I made this fabric jewelry set.

This is my green fabric pendent. It is accompanied by the fabric ring.

Here is my quick how to on this fabric jewelry set. I used coins for the fabric circle bases. I used hot glue gun for attaching the fabric to the coins. I have also used a piece of recycled belt as the base for the pendent. So, this is a go green jewelry project, as I have used only recycled or recycable materials for it.

As you may see, I have used just tiny scrapes of fabric for this jewelry project. Still it does look good and I get many people asking me where I got this set.

Here is how you make this orange jelly. The recipe:

1 table spoon of gelatin

2-3 table spoons of sugar or honey

1/2 cup of hot water

5-6 oranges

a bit of cinnamon

You pour gelatin with hot water, add sugar or honey and stir it well. Then you slice the oranges in half and squeeze the juice out and remove all the insides without damaging the skins.

You mix the juice with the gelatin mix and stir it well. Add some cinnamon and pour your jelly into the orange half. Then you set them into your fridge and freeze them. You serve your orange jelly right in the orange skins and you may use some fresh mint leafs for decoration.

Tilda style fabric basket


This is a very easy Tilda style fabric basket sewing project. I have spent about 10 min making this fabric basket. I can use it for storing my make up or for crafting supplies. It’s a small and cute basket.

Here is a quick how to or tutorial on this Tilda style fabric basket.

You’ll need three layers of fabric for it. I cut out three equal circles. Two of them were made out of this brown fabric and one I cut out of an old sweater for the filling.

I put two of the brown circles together and sew them leaving a small hole for everting. Then I everted them and inserted the third circle inside the two. I sew them together make these  squares as you may see on the picture.

Then I used a needle and a thread to sew on the edges of the circle and pulled the thread to ruffle up the circle. Finally, I sew on the lace and made a rolled lace flower for decoration.

Decoupage ideas: French style glass bottle decoupage


I really love this glass bottle decoupage project. I got this little glass bottle with one flat side and it suggested a wonderful decoupage idea to me.

As you may see, the bottle has Eifel tower on its front side. I used a very nice vintage type of napkin for this decoupage idea.

I have also made a small leather bow for the bottle and attached a short chain with a little silver key to it. So, now I got a nice French style and vintage looking vase made out of recycled glass bottle with decoupage on it.
