I just finished this necklace made of upcycled plastic bottles. I cut some random triangles in the bottle, burnt the edges with a lighter to smoothen them and added some graphic lines with permanent white marker. I made a pair of matching earrings as well :)
Sewing everything on a shirt, it’s taking longer than I thought but well I’m having fun. Funny fact that each flower has a particular scent since most of them are made of used clothing, washed of course, but even, I feel like each one of them tells a particular story. I used all the 71 flowers that I had, now I need to make some more to cover the rest, phew!
This is what I’ve made so far, phew.
Bleached it for about 1-2 hours, and I must say I’m more than happy with the result, I love how the inside thread kept its original blue color !
Shredded T-Shirt/Dress attempt. About 8 hours.
