D.I.Y suéter de caveirinhas
It’s been some time I’m anxious to put this ideia into practice: sewing skull pendants in a sweater *.*
The idea is not very different from this one (remember the blouse with pearls?), but I decided to share it with you, after all it’s one more option if you want to customize without spending much :)
♥ Pin and needle
♥ Line (in a color similar to either the sweater or the pendants)
In case you want some extra shine you may need as well:
♥ Strass*, glue for strass and a pick :)
* I had thought about gluing blue strass in the skull’s eyes to make it more interesting, but I chose golden because I may want to remove the skulls and put them in another sweater someday (it’s difficult to find them here).
♥ This tip is a little weird to explain but, there we go: I suggest that you put on the sweater and mark where you want the pendants to be in this region in a way to avoid placing them in the breasts (it may get strange if it’s centralized :P haha)
♥ It’s better to use flat pendants (not too thick ones). Unfortunately I couldn’t find flatter ones I liked and I chose these which are about he same size of the pearls I used in the other sweater. Bigger pendants might be uncomfortable!
Ok, tips over! Now it’s simple:
1. If you want, glue the strass to the pendants!
2. After marking the places with pins*, sew each pendant
* This time I didn’t measure each position exactly (I marked just by looking) and I loved the result, but if you like everything in the right place you can do as I taught here!
Voilà! Your skull (or any other pendant, of course!) sweater is ready :)
There are many ways to place the pendants, such as: only in the front (as I did), on the shoulders, above the chest, only on the sleeves and front, etc. just use your creativity!
Oh, when you wash it you’d better do it by hand, ok?
Thanks for everything, guys!
