Up-cycled Girls Shorts, A Necklace And What To Do With A Pinchy Bracelet…

With this month’s crafty parcel challenge from Bostik and Tots 100 we have gone all girly. 

When I was wondering what we could make this month my daughter was putting on her jeans. “Mum they are too short” she shouted. “Try another pair on” I replied. ‘These are too short too’ !!

All of last years jeans were too small (lucky I had just brought her some new ones). 

I know, we can cut the legs off to make shorts, I told her. She just gave me that look and walked off into the room. 

Off I went upstairs chopped off the legs half way up, rolled them over a few times for effect and sprinkled beads and sequins over. The shouted her upstairs. 

Wow she said, these look great…

Yeah, I finally got her attention…

But it was left to mum to sew them all on.

I have had this bracelet years now but for some reason, it pinches the hairs on my arm and sometimes my skin. It is so uncomfortable to wear I simply stopped wearing it altogether. I think it catches around the 2 bits pointed out below so I did something that has stopped it pinching…

I simply screwed a bead onto the bottom on added a few charms, another bead and screwed another one onto the top on. So far so good, not pinching….

And my daughter made and designed her own necklace…

    You are so good and creative Claire. Loving all the shorts (and the skirts for your daughter, in the previous post) that you made. I also super love that bracelet – my favorite. Charming and cute (pun intended on the 'charm').
