DIY Key Ring Pendant

Oh how I love staring through the glass windows of Tiffany and admiring the beautiful bajillion dollar pieces of jewelry. With their rings to bracelets to necklaces, Tiffany never fails to take my breath away. These were definitely a unique idea and I loved them. So I bought some key rings and tried to make them on my own.

If you want you could use assorted sizes and colors of key rings or you could just keep it simple like I did.

Stuff you need:
Several key rings
Necklace chain

1. Lay out the rings in the form of the pendant.

2. Begin by attaching just 2 together like you would a normal key ring.

3. Then attach the rest of the rings.

Attach to a necklace chain and wear!

DIY Simple Strapless Dress

Now that summer is officially here it is the perfect time for all s's: swimming, smoothies, sunglasses and strapless dresses. This tutorial is an easy and inexpensive way to get your own strapless dress.

The result of this dress all depends on the fabric you choose. I was fortunate enough to come across an amazing summery floral while strolling through the fabric store the other day. I fell completely in love with it bought it immediatly.

Stuff you need:
1 meter of fabric
Sewing machine (needle and thread will do)

1. Iron the fabric.

2. Measure around above your chest, under your arms. Add 10cm to this measurement. Find the center of the top of the fabric, this should also be where the center of you measurement is. Cut from the sides of the measurements to the bottom corner of the fabric. It should now form a trapezoid.

3. Fold the fabric in half and pin the sides together. Then sew them together.

4. Now fold the top of the dress inwards. The seam should be large enough for the elastic to fit inside. Sew in place and leave a gap to put the elastic through.

5. Cut the elastic so that is 7 cm shorter than the initial measurement you took at the beginning of this tutorial. Use a safety pin to pull the elastic through. Sew the 2 ends of the elastic together and close the seam.

6. Last but not least trim the dress to your desired length and fold to make a seam.

Now that you've got yourself a new basic, dress it up and have fun wearing it all through summer!
