Diamond Week : my crafts !!!!

My work has been based on the bigger diamond shape found on Sarah's book "Craft-A-Day"...


...and I even thought to use a different one from minieco....


I cut out 2 "diamonds" from white felt...


then I traced, with the help of a pencil, the minieco's gem on one of my diamonds...


....and I started to embroider the gem with some glossy grey thread...





Once completed the embroidery, I sewed the other diamond on the back of the previous one, using a basic blanket stitch and some beads for a more girlish result...




...a final touch : a little hole and a rat tail to wear my precious diamond...










...you know the quote "Diamonds are a girl's best friend"???
.....well, not true!!!.....till now!!!!!
