DIY Projects | Personal

Ever since we've moved - and I'm unsure why this is - but I've become a fanatic about "Do it Yourself" projects. As I mentioned in a previous post about our cute, red produce cart, that is one of the many things I've either helped make or made myself in the last 30 days of living in Tempe. 

Maybe it's because I'm not as busy?? That will all soon change, I'm sure, if that is the case!!!

Besides the cute, red produce cart that I'm absolutely stoked about, when we went on our trip overseas, we purchased a few souvenirs for ourselves. One of them that we accumulated was supposed to be a gift for someone else, but it broke in transit and I couldn't give it to them broken. So, I decided to put it back together again!

However, the snag in the fabric in this situation is that I didn't save the pieces that broke off!!! Whoops! I wasn't thinking when I threw that away apparently. :)

This is where I guess you have to be creative.

So we went to JoAnn's where I looked and looked, but couldn't find anything that remotely resembled any of the pieces on the clock, so we bought something random, hoping it would fit. 

After we got home, we realized how much it did not fit. Since, however, JoAnn's is somewhat far away, we decided, let's try it. So we did.

And this is what came of it:

What do you think? Can you tell which parts I changed to make it work?? If you can't then, YES! It worked. If not, oh well - I'm a rookie at this whole DIY thing. :) After all, I could have just thrown away the clock, but I didn't have the heart to. It's too beautiful to do such a thing AND it's all handmade. Now handmade by Pakistani's and me, but mostly by Pakistani's! :)

I'll have to mention later what I did change - first I want to hear your guesses!! :) Good luck! I might just think of something good for the winner to receive.
