I am in love with this tapestry backpack. If you've seen the little tapestry sling purse I have worn in previous posts.. guess what? IT'S THE SAME PATTERN. Yeah! I was so excited when I saw this bag in a op shop (you Americans probably call them thrift shops) far far away from my house.. it was literally like finding treasure! I always wanted a spunky backpack for school.. actually I wanted a tan leather one (& still do!), however I would never have imagined to find a tapestry one! In tip top condition too! I used it quite a bit during the summer months of uni, but lately it's just been sitting on my hat stand as it doesn't really go with my winter coats! I also have a little black backpack which I shall show you soon!

I was inspired by Forever New to make this studded bow beret. I made one for my friend too because we both have the same beret from Forever 21 and it seemed to be a bit of a lost cause without anything to spice it up. Anyways all this studding has gotten me excited (Sorry I copied you Forever New!) but I have drawn all these other more original beret designs in my notebook which I want to create :D. If they become successful.. maybe I will sell some too! But who knows! Too bad I haven't got anymore berets willing to have a makeover :( As you have probably realised I have a thing for headwear - headbands, hats, etc. Decorating berets remind me very closely to decorating headbands - the designs on both somewhat overlap/can be transferable - this is getting me very exciting as I'm planning to spend my 3 week holiday coming up soon making things!!
