Tassle earings

20130621-114952.jpg
For sure you can’t have enough earings – so I just made some more this morning. Since the new Gatsby movie I see tassles all around. I thought about tassle earings for some time. Today it hit me with – of course – my favourite up to date colour combo orange- blue.

I found a very easy and perfect way to make the basic tassles on the blog of onesheepishgirl. Since you made the tassles you can just play around with it. I decided to start with thin cotton yarn in these bold colours, for I want it to match with a simple black dress of mine.

As soon as I finished it (it’s a quick about 30 minutes project) lots of more tassle ideas came to my mind. It’s a great way to vamp up a simple style. I guess I’ll try it with a shiny embroidery floss for a real Gatsby-style or something with an ombre look too. Just give it a try. It’s one of my favourite projects now!

Crochet flower earings

20130620-144521.jpg
This is such a fun project – and finished in less than an hour! I always like to experiment with things that I could turn into earings (my favourite jewelery). Crochet flowers are perfect for summer and a kind of vintage feeling. I chose the flower-patterrn from Mollie Makes. It’s easy and you can adjust it to the size you need. I used a thin cotton yarn in bright colours. The red ones perfectly match with my new black and white dotted dress. Yay! To finish, I added pearls in the centre of the flowers, but other stuff as buttons etc. would turn out great too. Very much fun to everybody who will try this!
