Yesterday the lovely G & G joined me for a spot of crafting at the Oasis store on Argyll Street of all places. They are currently running their 'fashionably late' events on Thursday nights until 4th June.
Yesterday was entitled 'Recessionista Chic' and involved us sipping cocktails, stashing Vitamin Waters and rummaging through piles of fabric scraps - all to some cool, if not slightly deafening, tunes.
Once ushered down a staircase which none of us had noticed in the store before, we were met by Jennifer of The Make Lounge who was responsible for bringing the craftiness in-store.
We were ushered to our seats and given instructions to make some pretty flower corsages using layers of fabric and colourful buttons. All being big fans of both fabric and buttons, we soon got stuck in.
I loved the fact that we all totally ignored the instructions and kind of free-styled it. Here are the fabulous results:
I was the one going for pink overload.. How these decorative pieces made us 'recessionistas' I am not entirely sure, but it was certainly a laugh and you all know I'm a sucker for freebies!
