Zipper Bracelet

DIY Tutorial: Zipper Bracelet | @onelmon

Summer is almost here everyone (yay!) and today I’m sharing a tutorial on how to make a bracelet from zippers with pop bright colors to brighten up your look! I saw a pack of colorful zippers sold in Daiso (¥100 shop, something similar to A Dollar store) the other day and I thought this is the chance to try my new sewing machine that has just arrived! Today’s craft will only need minimal sewing but if you don’t sew, you can always substitute all the sewing steps with glueing. Here goes the how to! Continue reading

2-in-1 Bow

DIY Tutorial: 2-in-1 Bow | @onelmon

In case you missed it, I made a double bow tutorial the other day and today I’m sharing yet another bow tutorial! It’s a double color or 2-in-1 bow! The steps are quite similar to the previous one (both are super easy and need just a small scrap of fabric to make) but they are different but still cute in their own way. You can use any fabric combination that you like, of course but for this tutorial, I used felt as the fabric just to make it easier to see. Join along and let’s make some bows! Continue reading

Snapshot Necklace

DIY Tutorial: Snapshot Necklace | @onelmon

A few days ago I saw a lady wearing a cartoon character necklace in the station and I thought it was kinda cute. But hey, why not make it funnier and more fun by using a real image of a person instead? I have 2 sisters that are very fond of doing jumping shots and I thought those shots could work well for this accessory. Of course you can use a standing (still) photo of yours but I think a shot with two hands up or any other gestures would make cuter necklaces. Let’s jump to the easy how-to!

Bead Button Necklace

DIY Tutorial: Bead Button Necklace | @onelmon

Do you have a lot of random beads from broken bracelets or necklaces and random spare buttons that were clipped inside your shirts or trousers? I have, lots of them.

Just like the toilet roll, I can’t seem to throw them away because who knows when Pinterest will show me amazing projects that need them. So here was I a few days ago, trying to put these buttons and beads with no master into some use. So, are you ready to join me in transforming these lonely little tinkrets into a simple and cute necklace? Continue reading
