I had the thought at the back of my head for a few weeks but couldn't find a jumper of a similar colour so had pretty much shelved the idea until one evening SBB and I were in Newport to collect a healthy and nutritious meal (*cough*McDonalds*cough*) and I saw a suitable jumper in the window of Oxfam. By that time Oxfam was closed so I went back the next day. It was no longer in the window but it was still there and in my size! Obviously meant to be...
I bought some iron-on studs from eBay and on a Saturday while SBB was watching football I set to work.
- 100 iron-on studs
- Greaseproof paper
- Folded cardboard
SBB eventually wandered in and looked over my shoulder.
"Don't say it," I warned, seeing the look on his face. "Whatever you're going to say about my jumper... just don't."
"I wasn't going to say anything," he said blithely. "If you want to look like rhinestone cowboy that's your business."
When it was finished I asked him to take a couple of photos of me wearing it and discovered that he really sucks at taking blog photos. He took a few - initially of himself because he'd managed to switch it to the front camera (bless!) - but they all came out blurry. Every. Single. One. (sigh)
But here it is, the finished article. Not bad for £3!
