Beaded Tassel Necklace | Make Scout
I know it’s only July but I’m already thinking about Christmas presents! I’m keen to DIY more gifts this year - last year fell in a big heap - and this beaded necklace would be absolutely perfect for my sister. She saw some very similar ones at some markets that were around $80, but I think i could make her about six for that much (though I might have to keep one for myself)

Summer Sandals 2 Ways

Hand Embroidered Peter Pan Collar | The House That Lars Built

One thing I love buying from op-shops is hand embroidered table cloths. When you think about how long it must have taken someone to embroider a whole table cloth - wow! So I feel like I’m saving something quite special. This gorgeous collar won’t take you as long to stitch as a table cloth, but it will be just as special. There’s a free template with the pattern to follow for the hand stitching - just make sure you do your stitching before you sew together your collar!

Customisable Perfume Bottle Clutch | Wander & Hunt
Wander & Hunt is the DIY kit & supply shop from A Pair & A Spare, and it’s amazing! Not only can you get some great craft items like rhinestones, studs, fabric and chains, but amazing kits to make some truly stunning fashion pieces. This has to be my favourite kit so far - a ‘perfume bottle’ clutch that you can customise however you want with the included lace, flat pearls and tassels. What an amazing present for a fashionista/crafty/perfume obsessed friend! The kit isn’t cheap, but you get free shipping (awesome!). Make sure you check out the rest of the craft kits such as this gorgeous jewelled belt, rhinestone ear cuff or ombre tassel necklace.

Embellished Sport Sandals | Love Maegan
I know these shoes are not everyone’s style, but chunky sport sandals are everywhere right now - even Prada has a pair! But I really love the spiky embellishment that Maegan has sewn on them, and it would be easy to use on any fabric shoe. And don’t worry - though it looks dangerous, the spikes are plastic so you’re not going to end up with an injury!
