Punk Bracelets

I have been inspired by Jen Kao's jewelry and wanted to do something similar. The photo is courtesy os

What you need is leather, chain, zipper and glue. From there you can add on if you want to. In addition to the basics, I used eyelets on the leather and threaded leather lacing through some of the chains.

I kinda like how mine turned out, It is not an everyday item but is a fun punky one that I will wear from time to time.

Playsuit - Jumpsuit!

I have been craving a jumpsuit for a while now. The ones below are by Paul and Joe (photos from and represent only a fraction of ehat is out there in the stores.

Pattern: Selfdrafted. Took me 3 muslins but was worth it! BTW, it is not hard to do. All it is is a top and a pant pattern glued together. Well, it is not quite that simple but is not rocket science either!

Fabric: Lightweight bright blue denim.

Details: Inseam pockets; pleated band; cuffed pants; invisible zipper in side seam; elastic band in back pand; elastic at waist (you cannot see this in the photos, it is under the belt).

Construction: It was very easy to make!
The leather elastic belt and the necklace are also designed and made by me.

I LOVE it!
In fact, I love it so much that am thinking on making another one and trying to sell it on Etsy. Well, this is just a plan, but I love my pair!
