So... S is leaving for Europe tonight (so she's been busy with last minute packing), and Simon was losing some wisdom today (har har har! - he had his wisdom teeth out), so that left me on my lonesome all day...
It's really quite nice, doing nothing study-related for a change! I can report to you that I am almost up to date with the latest season of Gossip Girl, and I have started a few more DIY projects that might just make it onto the blog in due time.
But today I was feeling particularly productive, so I decided to take some inspiration from the following pictures to come up with my own take on the ribbon-rose bib necklace!

|Lots of inspiration from here!!!|
Why I came up with this idea, I really have no clue. But I think there's plenty of potential with these ribbon roses (i.e. headbands, bracelets, etc.)
|Firstly I made a lot of these... (or you could buy them at Spotlight)|
|Then I cut out a piece of fabric in the shape that I wanted it to be. (I had to glue a few layers together to strengthen it)|
|Assembling it with old-school needle & thread!|
|Individually sewing on the roses - a bit time-consuming, but worth it.|
