Wrapped by Tassel

After a month of being stuck at home and struggling through those boring days, my sister and I agreed to spend this weekend by stroll along the streets and visit some places around Jakarta. 
Because the weather was uncertain, I confused about what outfit to wear. The weather on that day was plenty warm and windy. I just bought a long sleeves crop top and decided to wear it. I combined the crop top with a suitable grey skirt which I found in my closet. It was good, but, I thought I can't go out on a windy day with just wearing a crop top and skirt. I need something to 'wrap'. So, I picked my tasseled cardigan as a wrap. It wasn't just a perfect wrap, it looked so stylish!
I always love tassel, I don't know why, but, it brings ethnic vibe to the look. Besides the tassel, I love this cardigan because of it's creamy color.

Nah, ready for the stroll!










Lately, I love wearing boots. I think boots have similar function to the tasseled cardigan of mine. You'll get comfort (because boots warm your legs), and look stylish at the same time!

DIY Felt Flower Brooch

Hi wonderful readers! After a few weeks of  being at home, I feel bored...

You know, I'm currently in a gap period, a period before going to university after finishing high school. So, instead of  not doing anything at home, I made this DIY project.
Tadaaaa, a felt flower brooch!





Do you like it? :) If you like it and want to know how to make it, I will show you the steps.
Let's start it!

First, you need to prepare the materials. The materials are:
                • scissor
                • glue
                • brooch / pin
                • felt fabrics

After that, cut the felt fabrics into shapes we want to make; flower petals and the flower pistil.
For the flower pistil, you need to cut a felt fabric lengthwise--it's for the center part of the flower-- and then, again, cut the fabric lengthwise also but wider than the first one. Make it fringed by cutting one side of the fabric.


Take the first fabric cut and roll it.


Take the fringed cut, glue it, and stick it to the roll.




The flower pistil is done! Next, we're going to make the flower!

Take the flower petals and glue them one by one. Then, stick it to the pistil.





The flower is done! And the final step is, glue the flower and stick it to the brooch or pin.





Well done! The felt flower brooch is ready to wear! 

I hope this tutorial can be useful and makes us be more productive. Thanks for reading and don't forget to comment down below about your gap year experience!
