I gladly accepted New York Design Shop’s Create Couture DIY Blogger Challenge who then sent me & 9 other DIYers a box of goodies to get creative with and this is one of mine.

* about 20″ of feather fringe {depending on ankle size}
* satin ribbon
* needle & thread

steps

loveMaegan-Feather DIYs-2

* wearing the shoes you want to accessorize, use the feather fringe to measure your ankles

loveMaegan-Feather DIYs-3

* snip accordingly

loveMaegan-Feather DIYs-5

* make sure the feathers curve down not out and up

loveMaegan-Feather DIYs-6

* cut 4 ribbons about 20″ long each & singe the ends to prevent fraying

loveMaegan-Feather DIYs-7

* fold ribbons over ends of feather fringe & hand-stitch securing ribbon & feathers in place

loveMaegan-Feather DIYs-8

* wrap ribbons around ankles and tie in back snipping off extra length if necessary

And since the white feathers may look like little feather dusters around your ankles and would best be worn on Halloween with a French Maid costume, I recommend using the black feather fringe and wearing them over your favorite black booties or sandals with tights for Fall.

OtherUses

loveMaegan-Feather DIYs-13

* layer rhinestone necklaces around the top & wear one or both around your neck

* if they’re a little too over the top glam for you, they would be perfect as part of your Lady GaGa Halloween costume

* also may be worn around your head, waist or upper arms, tied onto your bag, wrapped around a wide-brimmed hat, or around your pet ;)

    曾經你也愛她的一切,如今卻因為有了婚外情,一切都變成了缺點。
    婚外情甜蜜嗎?
    因為少了柴米油鹽的破壞,所以婚外情份外浪漫!
    婚外情有趣嗎?
    因為時間極其寶貴不夠深刻了解對方,所以婚外情份外新鮮!

    兒子交了個女友,我和老伴都不是很喜歡;
    豐富社會歷練的我們一眼就看出這女生不如表現的單純,
    但是兒子卻總是認為我們想太多。
    朋友提議不如做婚前徵信調查看看,
    希望兒子不要被騙,於是我們決定私下做婚前徵信
    婚前徵信的結果才發現原來女方不僅交友複雜、晚上更做傳播兼差!
    兒子看了婚前徵信的報告之後,才知道原來女友的乖巧全都是假象;
    兒子說幸好有我們有做婚前徵信,不然等結婚之後才發現,一定又是一段不幸福的婚姻!

    通姦問題在台灣相當嚴重,
    最重要的原因就是因為許多人總是忍氣吞聲,
    而導致通姦的人不認為自己通姦的行為有錯!
    錯誤的行為應該制止,伴侶通姦不該姑息!
    通姦問題,讓專家協助您順利解決!

    This is Sooooo beautiful!!! I especially LOVE it as a collar, with rhinestone necklaces! As I get my time in order, this will be a “must make”.
    I found a site that makes “Feather Gauntlets”: http://www.artofwings.com/feather_gauntlets.htm
    They are so beautiful; I’d love to make a design of my own! I used Google: “Sewing Feathers onto material” and found your creation.
    I think making your feather collar AND a matching set of “feathered Gauntlets would be GREAT!
    Thank you so for your article.
