If you’re like me, your sewing room is overflowing with notions – pins, rulers, markers seem to dominate every corner of table. But now your notions don’t just have to be left in the sewing room…. transform them into jewelry and wear them everywhere!

Need a pair of earrings to match your dress? This tutorial will teach you how to make self-covered button earrings. Need a little something to wear around your neck? Try this tutorial for a Louis Vuitton inspired beaded necklace or add a bit of bling with a zippered flowered brooch! Still looking for more? This tutorial has ideas for turning a thimble, buttons, and embroidery designs into beautiful necklaces!

    DIY jewellery really adds to the individual style. Sewella, I like the idea of adding vintage scarves.

    …you may also use vintage scarves to make necklaces or employ cutwork for a more sophisticated “jewelry”! Thanks for the lovely post and links!
