Aussie Curves - Homemade

So it's the last week of Aussie Curve 1.0 and I think it is safe to say (for me anyway) that the most difficult challenge has been left till last!
I am not a sewing person at all so that eliminated the option of homemade clothing by me. The last time I sewed I was trying to hem up some pants and kept falling asleep doing it...I eventually gave up - it was a terrible effort!

I would definitely consider myself a crafty person, just not in the sewing department. So I have opted for a couple of items of jewellery I have made over the years to put some finishing touches on an outfit.
 
City Chic Skater Dress & belt - Bought on Facebook $40
City Chic Black long sleeve top - Op shopped $4.50
Black cardi - free from an Op Shop cause it has a hole in it.
Earrings - Homemade by me
Red flower brooch - Homemade by me
LOVE brooch - also Homemade by me
KMart Leggings - $8
NOVO Boots - $20 (my boot dilemma is over! I am loving them!)

The brooches were so easy to make. I just hot glue gunned some old pendants to some big buttons and glued a brooch back to each button.
I did have a brainwave this morning, however it didn't work out. I have a habit of painting my nails every weekend to stop myself bitting off my nails and have been wanting to tryout a design I saw on Lady Melbourne's blog a while back. I have now realised my right hand is not steady enough to draw fine details on my left hand. Which is a bummer cause I thought a homemade manicure would've been tops!
The photo above on the left is what Lady Melbourne's manicure looked like. The lame one on the right is my attempt and the cover up. I decided to include a little collage of some more successful designs I have managed instead.
 
 Enjoy your week ladies! Bring on Aussie Curves 2.0!!
