diy studded jumper

diy: studded shoulders

I love the studded jumpers that Topshop have been selling but they are far too expensive! So I thought I'd have a go at a DIY. 

What you will need:
A jumper: I bought this dip dye turquoise jumper in Primark for £8. I thought it would be perfect for studding. 

Some studs: The studs were relatively cheap and I got them from >>Ebay<<. 
And a knife: I just got an old kitchen one. Preferably use a blunt knife so there's no chance of cutting yourself.

1. I chose to stud my jumper down the seam. So first I positioned the stud where I wanted it to be.

2. I pushed the legs through the jumper, this was easy because the material wasn't that thick.

3. Using a knife push the legs inwards

4. Make sure the legs go into the stud, this anchors the studs better and stops them from working themselves out of the jumper.

I decided to use 5 studs on each shoulder, you could use more or less depending on what you want.

This is a great way to be right on trend with spending very little money! I have a video below of me studding the jumper, if you want to check it out :)

  4. Fab post! As you seem one for a lover of ebay and homemade things, I just thought you might be interested, but me and my friend are starting up our own jewellery business via ebay, we have quite a few products made up, but so far, we have only got round to putting these earrings up for sale! We are really reasonably priced, and the items are super cute! Would be extremely grateful if you could check them out, or even maybe purchase something! :D

    Here is our link to our first 'published' product :) http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Cute-Bird-Drop-Earrings-Antique-Gold-Earrings-/320972971581?_trksid=p5197.m1992&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D14%26meid%3D1675637029708278812%26pid%3D100015%26prg%3D1006%26rk%3D1%26#ht_500wt_1156
