Hello You Wonderfuls!
Today will be the launch of a Brand New GEE WHIZ Tutorial!

Say Hello to the Patch Pendant!

So If you are ANYTHING like me, You are a bit of a hoarder. There’s just too many passions and loves of mine, that I tend to collect and hoard different do-dad’s, knick knacks, and just Cool STUFF!

One of my BIGGER Random collections are patches. RANDOM patches. They are Too cool, that I tend to hoard them, and store them away.. I do not want to commit to iron them onto anything because It have commitment issues, (and not afraid to admit it!) I get all anxiety... Blah blah blah..... HOWEVER, I came up with an idea that knocked my socks off, and made me happy to proudly display (And inner change) my cool patches at ANY time!!

Here we go!

These are the supplies you need:

•Glue gun
•Your Random patches
•Different Types of felt... And/or thicker ribbon for the backing
(The more Contrast, the better)
(if its not an Already made necklace chain, Tools to measure and create your own!)

Let’s get Started!!

Get your patch, and measure up to your backing of your choice (felt, ribbon, ribbon on felt...Whatever you Want!)
 ***In this case, my ribbon of choice is too small for my patch, so I will cut 3 different pieces to glue***

Glue the patch onto your “backing”

Cut around its shape (The more “Shapely” the better it looks!)

Grab a piece of felt, and measure about 2-3 inches (Depending on the size of the patch you are working with)

HOT GLUE top part onto the back of the “backing”

Place your chain in the middle, and HOT GLUE the bottom.

MAKE SURE there is room for the chain to slip around...

WAH LAH! ROCK IT OUT and Show off your Patch attire!

All... My... Friends... know the LOWRIDER! haha!

Inspirations: Not only do they inspire to thrive and be the BEST you, but they make you see things and life in their light and their way of interpretation. I am inspired all the time, Mostly through art, and it NEVER ceases to amaze me how wonderful Life is, in all aspects, and the beauty of LIVING it. 

Andy Warhol is FANTASTIC. Definitely on of my HUGE inspirations. “OUT SIDE “ of the box thinker. His Muse, Edie Sedgwick, VERY Beautiful in her own right, is a Genius at STYLE. 

STYLE is what makes this BEAUTIFUL world turn Round and round. 

Frida Kahlo: COLORS/ Textiles/ Flowers/ Jewels,. BEYOND her time. Still is.

And I'm NOT just talking the LADIES.....
Some men Like André 300,


and Prince 

take it to the NEXT level and Beyond!

Inspirations. Inspire you to be GRAND. The GRANDER YOU.
