finally it is tutorial time again :) I already missed crafting stuff for you (and me, of course) !
Since my last Trendlove was about berets I was itching to do something with my berets !
There you can see different ways to wear a beret and how they styled it up.
Today I show you how to do a toadstool beret:
For this you need:
~ a beret
~ needle and thread
~ felt in desired colour
~ fixing pins (not that essencial)
Then you have to cut out your white felt dots. I made 16 of them in various sizes so it looks more like a real toadstool :)
Afterwards I tried out different combination of them. What do you think?I think the right one looks more natural because it is not that consistent.
When you have decided how you like the dots best you can pin them in place and start to sew them onto the beret.
Then I start to sew them on like this so that there are a couple of free millimetres left. I do not know why I made it like that - I think it looks somehow cuter xD
Well, if you sewed on all of the dots you are done:
Here are some more inspirations for your beret:
You can add some pearls, bows, an embroidery! Sew on some lace, patches or studds - there are so many possibilities :)
I show you pictures of me wearing it at the end of april because there is a Lolita event where I am wearing it to - so stay tuned for cute pictures :D
I hope you liked the simple but yet awesome tutorial! Show me some pics of your new modified berets and caps ♥
