raw fingers.

while cleaning, i came across an old belt that i used once for an 80s halloween party. the pyramid studs were perfect for the DIYs i've been meaning to try with all my jeans from the motherload. removing all those studs from the belt was a b!tch, let me tell you. and applying them to the jeans through the denim but under the lining was a bigger b!tch.
but ten raw fingers later, i had the beginnings of some potentially wearable pieces.

have you studded anything? what kind of tools do you use, if any?

finishing off photos from last weekend...mini-he and his
friend had fun sliding down the big hills [on cardboard]
at kaka'ako park.
i asked my friend for a cookie...he brought the bakery.
thanks, d!

  21. DIY'ing these shorts may have been a pain in the butt, but they sure look cute! I wish I had the patience to try this myself. I will be lucky to DIY a T-shirt I have coming my way. I want to cut the neck to make it an off-the-shoulder and cut the bottom to make it shorter. Ha -- Good luck with that, Bonnie.

  28. I've only studded collars before, and i didn't have to recycle studs, so it was pretty easy. I can only imagine how hard it would have been to remove those studs from a belt!!!

    The shorts look amazing though!

  38. awesome! i can't believe you took them off the belt and put them on your shorts! genius!! i have a gem magic machine! it's awesome. when i first got it i was adding them to everything! i was buying cheap shirts and totally blinging them up. i've been wanting to do some others, but haven't gotten around to it. you've inspired me to dust it off and start blinging again!
