I am the bracelets you sport, everything you have ever missed, and more

For my birthday this year my mom got me subscriptions to two magazines: a diy clothes magazine and a diy jewelry magazine. This bracelet was inspired by one of the articles in the jewelry magazine.

I started by sewing together a few scraps of pink and black fabric as a base.
The blue flower was taken from scraps of a dress I remodeled (see this blog post), the red flower was made from lace, the beading was taken from pre-made chain of beads, and the X is an iron-on letter.
The bracelet ties closed with soft white lace. It looks pretty awesome, but can be tricky to tie by myself.

The bracelet is really soft and super comfortable.
I feel that it is a very cindiasaurus-esque piece of jewelry.
I basically heart it a lot.

Paaartay skirt!

Made this skirt for clubbing! Partly modeled it after another skirt I own. No pattern used, just kinda put it together as I went. Material given to me by a friend. It's super comfy and nice and cool - great for dancing!

High waisted skirt.

Thick waist band and wide pleating!

First time playing with big pleating - fitted waist opens up to a loose, puffy bottom.

double layer band on bottom.

big ole bow!
