D.I.Y : embellished quilted jumper
Quilted jumpers and tops are becoming pretty popular for A/W ’13. Recently I’ve seen tops with this effect but with an embellished neckline or trimming. I found a jumper in Pennys the other day with a quilted effect and thought it would be the perfect opportunity to make this €10 piece look like a €40 one from ZARA or Miss Selfridge.
Fabric glue, stick on gem stones which I bought from the Hobby shop in the Jervis Shopping centre and cocktail sticks to apply the adhesive.
I mentally drew a dividing line through the middle of the neckline and placed the jewels in symmetrical patterns.
After placing the gems along the neckline I left the glue to dry for a few minutes.
And voila! Finito!
This is a really easy and simple D.I.Y to bling up any old jumper you’re planning on throwing out. And cheap too!
