DIY studded converse

I'm very interest in DIY and I see everyday wonderful tutorials by very talented bloggers who mange to create almost anything (from nothing). My first attemp was a complete disaster: I tried to make a fringe tee but it just ended up in the bin. However, I decided to try again and make my own studded converse. I 've always wanted to buy a pair but they are quite expensive (around 150€) so I decided to give myself another try. I already had an extra pair of grey Chucks in my closet and I bought the studs on Ebay (http://stores.ebay.it/kawaiissimashop). I really recommend this seller to everybody: he sells studs of any shape and colour, at a good price and the shipment is really fast. I also bought a professional clamp but with the type of studs I used you really don't need it (I'm lucky I paid it only 4€).As for the studs, I really recommend not to use the ones with prongs (because they may hurt if not well inserted) but the ones with applicators that you can close with just a click!
Adoro i progetti fai da te e ogni giorno vedo splendidi tutorials di blogger talentuose che riescono a creare praticamente tutto (dal niente). Il mio primo tentativo è stato un completo disastro: ho cercato di creare una t-shirt con le frange ma è semplicemente finita dentro al cestino della spazzatura. In ogni caso, ho deciso di darmi un'altra possibilità e di fare da sola delle converse borchiate. Ho sempre voluto comprarne un paio ma sono abbastanza costose (attorno ai 150€) così ho deciso di tentare!Avevo già un paio di Chuck Taylor grigie nell'armadio e ho acquistato le borchie su Ebay (http://stores.ebay.it/kawaiissimashop). Consiglio a tutti questo venditore: vende borchie di ogni forma e colore, ad un buon prezzo e la spedizione è velocissima. Ho anche acquistato una pinza borchiatrice ma con il tipo di borchie scelte mi sono resa conto che non serviva a niente (per fortuna l'ho pagata solo 4€). A questo proposito vi consiglio appunto di utilizzare non le borchie con le alette (che possono farvi male se non correttamente inserite) ma quelle rivettate ossia composte da una parte esterna (es. a cono) e una parte piatta interna....così si chiudono semplicemente con un click!



So... the procedure is really simple. I used a screwdriver to make small holes in the shoes and then put the studs on. If u want to be more precise you can also use a pen to decide first wher u want the studs to be; I used around 140 of them. So...what do u think about the final result? 
Quindi...la procedura è molto semplice. Ho usato un cacciavite per fare dei piccoli fori nella scarpa e poi ho inserito le borchie. Se volete maggiore precisione potete utilizzare una penna per segnare dove volete posizionare le borchie; io ne ho usate circa 140. Beh, che ne pensate del risultato finale?

  28. Ciao Elisa,
    sei prefetta!
    Perchè non metti l'orologio al polso destro anzichè al sinistro che sta meglio. Si valorizza in modo moderno un po' di più!
