Spring is Nature's way of saying "Let's party!".
- Robin Williams -
Spring in Finland is actually a matter of decision. One March morning, we just get up and choose to start using our Converses, high heels, itsy bitsy skirts and light jackets - and it really has nothing to do with the actual temperature outside. Yep, the transition might begin because of a couple of days of warmth, but once you do it, you don't go back to your winter mode no matter what happens. Today, it hailed. And nobody seemed to give a flying frak about it. Not in the least I, even though I froze and cursed during every single minute outside. But anyways, since it's spring and everything just has to be peachy, I post something that makes my heart flutter for a while.
These cool worn out vintage gloves cost only 3e and are already a bit scruffy, so I didn't even hesitate with the scissors. The cuff off...
Then cut a heart motif in the middle of the glove and folded the cuff edges in and sewed, then titivated the heart edge with zigzag. I turnt the scraps of leather into cuff straps.
Nothing original, but added a couple of years for my gloves. Minna Parikka has really pretty gloves with hearts on them, but as a broke student I'll make do with these poor man's versions.
Summer skirts, leather jackets and thin scarves, here I come!
