DIY necklace in 3 easy steps/ uradi sam ogrlica u tri lagana koraka

Happy Sunday! Today's post won't be very long as I'm going to show you one necklace that I've made recently and already gave it away. I took this pics in a hurry (they're not very interesting and arty I'm afraid). Anyway, I'll try to make it a habit to document my creations before they end up as gifts. 

If you want to try this DIY yourself, you will need: faux leather, some kind of decoration (I've bought these shiny plastic ones in store where they sell sewing equipment and I'm sure they're not hard to find wherever you may live) and a bit of satin cord. 

step no.1
-cut out as much faux leather as you will need
step no.2
-sew the decoration of  your choice (beads, stones, crystals- whatever)
step no.3 
-sew the satin cord making sure it is the right length for your neck....and it's really as easy as that!

* I think it's only fair that I warm you that you might experience pain or some kind of discomfort in your arms if you do this frequently. Sewing by hand is never easy and it's harder when it comes to leather (and even faux leather thought this one is obviously softer). That's why sometimes special tools are needed to work with leather (which I never managed to get my hands on but that's another subject.) So, don't say I didn't warn you;)

Ugodna nedjelja! Današnji post neće biti jako dug, samo ću vam pokazati jednu oglicu koju sam nedavno izradila i već je uspjela udomiti:) Na brzinu sam je uslikala (pa eto fotografije i nisu nešto zanimljive ni umjetnične) i odsada svakako ću nastojati dokumentirati svoje radove prije nego što završe kao pokloni. 

Ukoliko vi želite isprobati ovaj uradi sam projekt, trebati će vam : eko koža, neka vrsta dekoracije (ja sam kupila ove sjajne plastične u trgovini gdje se prodaje oprema za šivanje, ali gdje god živjeli sigurno ćete uspjeti pronaći nešto slično) i malo satenske trake.

prvi korak
- izrežite onoliko eko kože koliko će vam biti potrebno za ogrlicu
drugi korak
- ušijte dekoraciju po izboru (perlice, kamenčići, kristalići- što god)
treći korak
-  prišijte satensku traku pazeći da je duljina odgovarajuća za vas.


* Mislim da je pošteno da vam upozorim kako će vas ruke možda zaboljeti,, pogotovo ako ovo budete često radili jer kada se radi sa kožom (pa bila to i eko kože) bez posebne opreme to jest sa običnom iglom i koncem, a uz to se ušiva veliki broj ukrasa...Eto nemojte reći da vas nisam upozorila;)

    1. nije teško ni komplicirano, ali je potrebno sat, dva vremena i truda...mislim da se na kraju ipak isplati.

All your comments mean a lot to me, even the criticism. Naravno da mi puno znači što ste uzeli vrijeme da nešto napišete, pa makar to bila i kritika. Per me le vostre parole sono sempre preziose anche quando si tratta di critiche.
