I love receiving mail, and where I can I will try to help, here is a recent plea for help...
Dear Ms Shopaholic,
I read with interest, your post below about how you cunningly customised a hat. I just wanted to ask, how on earth did you do this?
I know, I am pretty a-maz-ing, but it really is easier than it looks.
I love DIY blogs about how to make your own clothes or customise them, but truth is, I can't sew. I can't even thread a needle, so I'm all for the really major simple ones.
I recently read a post that explained how to make a ra ra skirt from scratch, whilst doing a handstand AND making your husband Spinach and Lamb Risotto (that sounds gross).
So, here goes, how to customise a hat:
Take 1 hat… and a scarf...
Tie the scarf around the base of the hat:
And ta da… done. (I know, unreal).
Easy peasy, lemon squeezy.
I do hope this has helped you ms hat person... you no longer need to make do, customise at your will. x
Love Ms Shopaholic
Ok, I'll admit, this is a rubbish customise, has anyone got any tips for a real simple customise that doesn't involve a sewing machine or any brain cells?
