So, between yesterday and today, I’m calling it “Burger Week” here on DivineDebris.com. Now, that doesn’t come with fries or anything (ha!) but it does come with a new earring pattern that I totally hope you love. See, I’m calling it Burger Week because yesterday I released my Linda Burger Bag pattern (on sale for 50% off right now) and to commemorate the occasion I decided to design some earrings to go with the bag. These, unlike the Linda Bag (named for Linda from Bob’s Burgers which influenced me to make the bag), are named for a friend of mine, Anna (pronounced On-uh) whose birth last name rhymes with burger. I even sent her a photo of the earrings as soon as they were finished so that she could see ’em. Considering that they’re named after her, she should be the first person to see them, right? She loved them, in case you’re wondering. So they’re burger earrings, signed off buy their burger lovin’ name sake. 😀 I hope you love them as much as we do!

When all your ends are woven in, apply fabric stiffener to your earrings. I like to do this on a piece of plastic so that the fabric stiffener doesn’t get all over everything. Let your new Anna Burger Earrings dry completely before you add the findings and hooks. But as soon as all that’s done, you’re ready to look fabulous!
Have a great week! <3
