PEARLS ARE FOREVER (FACE CAP UPSCALE DIY)

They say Diamonds are forever but pearls can still do the magic…

currently listening to diamonds are forever by John Barry

Hmmm … I went to see a friend that I have missed his craziness for sometime and behold this burgundy face cape spoke to me saying ” I need a new owner, take me! Please” LOL

Trust your girl, I went into another mood immediately to obtain the cap. It was quite difficult for him to let go because it was his favorite cap but who cares. I had to have the cap and he is a kind soul.

I hope you like what I  have done with it …

Best believe I am not going to leave you high and dry. I’ve got your back on this one. I will show you how to make yours. You can easily upscale your trousers, caps , turbans, Ashoke, shirts , jean jackets , skirts and lots more. Your options are endless. All you have to do is …

  • Own a hand sewing needle
  • A matching thread ( I like to match the thread to the main fabric or base and not the pearls)

  • A pair of scissors

  • A string of pearls ( a decent quality for durability)

  • A chalk for marking

  • A plain face cap of your choice

DIY cap and pearls

By now you must have threaded your hand sewing needle. Then use a piece of chalk to make some markings so as to see how the pearl placement would look like and also it will serve as a guide while you sew.

This is what your cap should look like after sewing. Mind you, its not a must to follow the markings you made earlier. If you look closely you would see that I didn’t use most of mine because I changed my mind but be careful to space them properly and evenly.
