DIY Studs

This is one of my favourite items at the moment but after one wear I failed to read the “wash care label” and ended up washing it in a washing machine and not hand washing. The result all my gorgeous beading gone! I felt like crying literally…
I thought about repurchasing as it wasn’t that expensive… but thought it would be unnecessary as I was determined to bring my little baby back to live J
So I headed down to my local bead store and bought the beads for about R12 and voila I’ve got my shirt back! {Note that the glue is still wet in the after picture}
