Miss Pretty Thing's Birthday!

So today is the wonderful birthday of Michelle from Pretty Things blog, she is a very good friend of mine and we met whilst working together in Soho way back in 2008

For her birthday as I haven't got much money I thought I would be creative,
I saw this amazing tutorial on how to make these awesome bracelets on HonestlyWTF website and gave it a go! I was in Brighton this weekend for a birthday party so attempted to make these in the car on the way down, made it that little bit more exciting and fiddly. But, I think they came out well and am definitely going to try making more in the future.

I found this little jar in Velvet and thought buttons would look perfect sitting inside, and Michelle would be the girl who would appreciate it them the most. So that I did, she seemed to like!

also drew this card to go with the homemade presents

let me know what you think!


  1. Aww... I know it is a cliché but I really do think that effort and enthusiasm is more important than money when it comes to gifts. These are lovely.

  2. Oh super cute!! I'm sure she'll love this!

  3. Aw these are so cute! Might steal the button jar idea for my Mum, she loves buttons! x

  4. You're adorable-lovely blog :)

  5. What a great gift. I would be over the moon to get this as a gift. Would love you to do tutorial on how to make that braclet.
