Here is my first attempt at making a barrette, I used a piece of lace, a vintage button, a blank barrette and a little bit of felt :

I'm glad you like it! The photos are not flattering at all, the colours are much better in real than what you can see on the picture.

I could make you one if you wanted but I only had one of the buttons so it would have to be with a different one. It's up to you Smile

Well, that sounds lovely ! Smile Another button doesn't matter off course, if all barrettes were the same, the world would get really boring Wink Razz

ATM I'm typing you a recipe by the way, will post it asap Wink

Thanks for the recipe. And about the button, maybe if you could tell me what are the colours you like or that you usually wear, it would help me choose a button for you Smile

Very Happy
About the colour, I mostly wear black...(which off course isn't a real colour) but I love to combine it with (dark) purple or deep/dark red (bordeaux red bounce Razz)

Leana: I made two new barrettes this afternoon. One with a black button, the other one with purple pearls. You can choose whichever you prefer Smile :

Escargot, they're both really beautiful! I love the purple pearls but the black button is very chique as well Surprised Smile
I think... I'll go for the black one (ow look at me being so predictable.. xD)

And how funny is it that we love the same colours, haha! Nice Smile

It seems we both like the gothic style so the fact we like the same colours was quite predictable Very Happy
I love green too, you know this type of halloweenish green ---> alien
Many people think it doesn't go with purple but I love these two colours together (even better when there is black involved too) :

(I do wear tights all the time and I do like taking pictures of feet hahaha)


Anyway, I'm sending you a PM about the barrette Smile

It goes fantastic together! Ow and striped panties are great, I have red/black and white/black ones. Bought them 5 years ago and these are the only panties who still last Surprised
Though I don't wear that much green, I'd have to say. Or well, I do, but army green Wink

I'll look at my pm after breakfast Razz
