5 minutes DIY - Hello Kitty Sunglass


Hi!  I'm back again...
The weather is still very bad...
and the haze is still hanging there...

Luckily, there was a 15 minutes heavy down pour this morning...
so, the air is cleared a bit...

Well, as long as it didn't get any worse...
it's still something to be grateful for, right?

So, in order to 'fight' the hot weather...
I make something 'cool' for Mei Mei...
(Thanks for reminding me about 'cool' Mich!)


This project is inspired by Khadijah from Creative Mind,
her DIY Bling-Bling Spectacle Project is simple but so fun and stylish too!


Now
This is the BEFORE

It's a simple plain kid's sun glass

I bought it at RM1.50 (USD 0.50) from a local shop.
with UV protection!!! Seriously?

Anyway, I like it...
I thought about adding some rhinestones and 
washi tapes at the beginning...



And...
I change my mind...

That is so not 'Mei Mei'


So...

I grabbed some faux leather leftover...
(Thanks to my sis who so kind to collect them from a car's cushion store!)

And cut them into these...


I got the big rhinestone from one of Mei Mei broken hair pin.

I glue the pink leathers and the rhinestone together
to form a bow.


And the little black strips things were glue to the sides
of the sun glass.

The result...
I love it!




Hot sun?  Here we come!


Have a nice 'cool' day!

Love

  1. That is so funny! And chic and stylish, too! I know Mei Mei looks like the cutest kitten in those. Sorry you are still cooking in heat over there - maybe you should invent something to wear that holds a little ice pack. I challenge you to do it!

  7. Hey, loving the new look on your blog, and I know someone who would LOVE these sunglasses, so I'm going to give the tutorial a try. Trusting you are well? Still haven't bought tickets...looking like I won't have the money to do it when I want to (February) but I'm not giving up! Even if I have to go later in the year, am determined to make it to Penang again!
    Missing you...be honest, the sunglasses are for you and not for the girls at all, no? ;) XX Nat
