In Wren Bay, I tried to weave into the story all these bits and bobs of subjects that I am passionate about. Fashion and Coco Chanel, is one of the subjects. I did a lot of research (which was so much fun), so you could say I've had Coco Chanel on my mind and after all that research, I wanted to add a bit more Chanel to my home.
While checking out the coolest fabric store on earth Esther's, for Chanel inspiration, I noticed they had a large selection of trim and FOE (fold over elastic) for making your own lingerie. What I think is soo cool about this stuff, is it is stretchy. Just think about it, cut a length, tack (sew) the ends together and you have a rubber band with pretty trim. There are a ZILLION uses for rubber bands.
Here I just took a French jam jar, wrap some trim around it and added a candle. I plan to make more of these for my kitchen window. So check out your trim/ribbon aisle, who knows what inspiration there is xoxo
PS, I noticed at Etsy, if you search lingerie trim, there is a bunch of stuff. Have fun.
