Week 15: Blue Ivy

Yeah, well today's piece is inspired by the newest, most famous child in the world, Blue Ivy Carter, the little bebe from Beyoncé and Jay-Z.  I figured with all the hoopla surrounding it, I had to do a little homage.  Gwyneth Paltrow tweeted about her and she already has a hip hop song featuring her baby cries.  Seriously!  (Listen to Jay-Z's jam here) I took a fab, vintage, green, short sleeved, mini-jacket from my closet and grabbed some blue glass beads from my kit to get started.  See the color combo I'm going for??


I threaded a needle and began to stitch these beads down to the edging of the bow at the clasp on the neck.


After stitching around the edges of each side of the bow, I had insta-Blue Ivy!!

Just think, J & B will be singing a duet of "Bonnie & Clyde" to her all the time!!  The bead work was just a small little detail...

Easy beadsy

...to add onto an already chic mini-coat to show my Beyoncé respect.  Oh, and so was stuffing my belly with my hoodie.

No, I'm not really preggo...

Watch out Suri Cruise, there's a new celebri-tot in town!!
