miu miu meow HOW TO.


If the last Miu Miu 'how to didn't tickle your fancy... perhaps this one will... maybe even easier and very inexpensive to create! 
Here are a few simple steps I took to make my D.I.Y miu meow- (feel free to drag the picture, enlarge print and away you go!)
MIU MIU HOW TO CAT BROOCH 10 SIMPLE STEPS.
1.use previous miu miu magic post for inspiration and close ups!
2.draw cat- a clear black outline is important for the next stage.
3.trace cat drawing in pencil on reverse of paper- i used a 4B LEAD.
4.Place paper drawing black outline facing up- pencil face down against card.
5.Take biro and press down firmly as you draw over original outline- this     transfers the pencil to the card.
6.Cut out using sharp scissors or scalpel- whatever you prefer or have to hand
7.Make duplicate of head shape (looks more like the real thing!)
8.cut whiskers eyes and nose out of black card- attach with pritt stick
9.Laminate complete cat- cut out and attach large safety pin with tape et voila!
10.Your very own Miu Meow   (miu miu made this brooch in pink or white!)
1970's Glasses 
I also thought I would share with you these incredible vintage glasses with mirrored lenses, and pink clear frames. Once I added plaited hair and D.I.Y miu miu's  to the mix, I would hope my intentions, or should i say attempts, were clear! 
With the slightly saddening knowledge that I will never own a part of their 2010 s/s collection I can only try to create a similar assortment with existing pieces from the wardrobe. The concealer applied to the lips is certainly a strange sensation.
(dress- french connection, shirt- old, shoes- D.I.Y, glasses- family treasure)
