***I need your help! I am in desperate need of sewing machine advice! Will you take a minute and answer my questions at the bottom of the post?! Thanks!!***
A few days ago, over on My Girlish Whims, I read a tutorial on making earrings and thought, “I could do that!” It was easier than I thought, but I still need to work on the wire shaping. Ready to try it yourself?
I bought some beading and earring supplies and went to work.
I sorted everything into small piles on a towel. I didn’t want all those small pieces rolling everywhere.
For my first pair, I picked out a few of the green and gold beads.
I threaded the light green beads with small gold beads on either side onto a bar with loops on the end. I did the same thing with the darker beads, only those bars had a flat part on the bottom.
I took the top part of the earring and cut the post a little smaller with some needle nosed pliers. They have a wire cutter on them.
I bent the post and threaded it through the loop on the bottom of the earring hook.
Then I bent the post with the needle nose pliers to make a complete loop and secure the beads to the earring.
I did the same thing with the bottom part of the earring and connected the post to the bottom loop on the top part of the earring.
See how cute, fun, and easy? Now do the same thing with the other earring, unless you only want to decorate one ear! :)
I made a few more and really like how they turned out.
I made all of these while Little Monkey took a nap. It was a fun, fast, and easy project. It was also a lot cheaper than buying them.
It was fun trying something new, too! :)
P.S. My sewing machine is dying. Sadness. If it can’t be repaired, I need to replace it. So, I am in the market for some sewing machine advice. I need help!!
What kind of sewing machine do you have? How long have you had it? What do you love about it? What don’t you love about it?
