If there are two things I talk about a lot they are the wonderful BurdaStyle website where inspiration for sewing projects abound, and Austin, Texas where I had the best time being wide-eyed in the tantalising vintage shops.  Well this year BurdaStyle’s DIY Fashion Show teamed up with none other than Austin’s summer Fest. SXSW.  The show is the combined effort of handmade wonderland and BurdaStyle and showed creations submitted to the annual competition hosted by the sewing website every year.

Welcome to DIYFORSTYLE. Where I will keep you updated on my upstyling, designing and customising adventures. Recently I’ve been raiding the button jar and playing around with beads to make these earrings.

The little metal ones are some vintage buttons that I bought at a street fair in Berlin, the loop at the back of the button easily slips into the wire circle at the end of the earring hook. I secured it with some jewellery glue just in case. Made another fun version of these with bright yellow NYC taxi buttons.
