DIY Project Stud Crazeee Update

I finally got done studding the white blazer that I got from yesstyle.com. Sorry, I wasn't able to take a before photo because I was so excited to get my stud on! My order also came with this super cute clear bear dangling earrings. Free with any purchase of "Cherry Girl" brand item... Now back to studding. I was going to use the hotfix nailheads but ended up using the real pyramid square studs (with prongs in the back) to make it look more like the real thing. Whew! It took me about 5 hours to do it but ofcourse with breaks here and there. My hands hurt after but it was all worth it. I'm so proud of myself ;) Up close Tools of the trade
  • White blazer/jacket (leather material preferably)
  • 3/8 inch pyramid square studs (approx. 320 studs depending on the size of your blazer) which can be purchased from ebay, studsandspikes.com, or spikesandleather.com
  • Jewelry/needle nose pliers/butter knife
I find it hard to do a tutorial so check out these instructional vids from youtube... Another studding project I finished over the weekend... I saw this design online but it doesn't say what brand. I like it though. Tools of the trade
  • Black blazer (I got mine from Forever 21 for $29.80 + tax)
  • Hotfix 7mm silver nailhead squares from ebay
  • Hotfix applicator wand
Check out my previous post for hotfix application instructions. Up close Notice the Forever 21 tag still on lol! My weekend went by so fast. Did I mention I'm going to be the Maid of Honor (more like "Maid of Horror" lol!) for my friend's wedding on May 2010? Gotta plan the bridal shower and bachelorette's party soon. I'm so nervous about giving a speech/toast since I'm not good in public speaking. I already got my dress but it's a little tight on the waist. Might have a wardrobe malfunction on the day of so I need to be serious about losing weight. I should since I have enough time before the wedding. I swear after the holidays, I'll be back on track. Have a great week ahead of you all! ***

I finally got around to buy pyramid studs yesterday when stopping buy a shop selling military effects. I bought the clutch at a secondhand shop months ago for a few dollars. Since it took me so long to get around to finish the planned project, I had been looking at similar bags in stores, but what annoys me is that they always use gold studs, it kind of ruins the look for me. I had hoped that the final result of my own creation would be a little more dramatic. Adding another row of studs might help, but even though it didn´t end up looking quite like I had hoped for, I am still content with it.
