Pinback Buttons


Pinback buttons. www.shaylafish.etsy.com

Gosh guys...I really haven't been blogging as much as I'd like to....and I miss everyone.
I have been super Super SUPERRRRRRRRR busy...no time to do the things I want to do. 

I recently started on a new belt. I love studded belts but I'd rather make my own with different designs. This one I am using a kitsch fabric with purple pyramid studs. It is a hard, long, annoying, and painful process;but when the belt is finished and I wear it out in public, everyone asks me where I bought it. I have the joy of telling them that I made it myself! :)

They look amazing! And because they have so many colors in them I imagine they will match with anything:)

Most studded belts just look the same, I hardly ever see ones that look special. But yours is truly original, I've never seen anything like that in the shops. It looks really cool;)
