All of these patches are amazing!

Where do all of you find such great fabric?!
4  JEWELRY AND TRINKETS / Trinkets and Jewelry: Discussion and Questions / how can I repurpose a single chandelier earring? on: August 20, 2013 12:51:21 AM
I was just given a box of my grandmother's old costume jewelry and there is a pretty chandelier earring that's lost its pair. I really don't want to toss it because it's gold... It's fairly small, too small to be a pendant, and my creative juices could use a boost! How can I repurpose it?
5  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Teesha Moore inspired patch wall hanging (LOTS of pics!) on: August 19, 2013 11:39:55 PM
Once you start making Teesha Moore patches, you get hooked! So, when my partner, MissCrafty29, mentioned that she would like a wall hanging and that she liked patches, I knew what to do Smiley I made this eco/vegan themed patch wall hanging and had a blast.

One of my favorite patches was the "mushroom" patch because all the stitching around the mushrooms gave it a sort of 3-D effect:

Some more patches:

I hand dyed/painted the fabric for these patches:

Annnnnd the "Earth" patch:

I was so in love with this wall hanging that a tiny part of me wanted to keep it, lol. Guess I better hurry up and finish my next patch project!

MissCrafty29, I'm SO happy that you like your package! I am so happy that it could cheer you up. I'm also really sorry to hear about your cat. It's always hard when you lose a fur baby Sad

I had a LOT of fun making the wall hanging... I'm so proud of it that I created a post for it, lol. Once you start making Teesha Moore patches, you kind of get hooked. Here's a link to a video tutorial on how to make these patches (it starts about halfway through the video), and they are very easy and require very little material to make.

I received an ah-mazing package from WiseOne, today. She pretty much spoiled me rotten and sent me enough supplies to finish my purse!

She sent me a bunch of fabric for patch making, another bundle of 2-inch strips to make a purse strap, 8(!) patches for me to finish, and three awesome eco/nature-themed patches. She even sent me a flier for me to re-purpose because it looked like an image off of my pinterest! How thoughtful is she?!

I hope the pictures are OK. I've packed my camera already, so I've taken these pics with my phone.

Here's a group shot:

Here are pics of the finished patches:

Thank you SO much! I love my patches!!!

Oh my, I just LOVE the beach patch! The seaglass-y beads...genius!

And the "this button doesn't do anything" is brilliant. I think I might have to copy that idea for myself, lol Smiley

I received a fantastic package in the mail yesterday all the way from Canada Smiley The package was wrapped in brown packaging paper and doodled on by MissCrafty29's little one. I couldn't wait to open it up!
I got a bandanna, a slouchy beanie, a shirt (but it fits me like a dress, lol), some cute bracelets, a pair of earrings, a necklace, two bars of soap, and a set of Canada pins.
Here is a group shot of everything:

Now, I have to mention, that once I opened up the package, before I could even see its contents, I could smell that there was something very fragrant in there. I couldn't quite pick out the scent... It smelled a little minty and lavendery?? As it turned out, I was smelling the Patchouli and Cinnamon soap in combination with the hemp soap.

Yup, it seems that this soap is a bit of an aphrodisiac. I'm not going to say anything more about that except that I think I'll accidentally misplace my partner's soap... Wink

I'm really loving the jewelry MissCrafty29 made me! They are straight out of my pinterest board! I'm especially loving those bracelets... How cute are those charms?!

And you didn't think I would end this post without some action shots, did you?

Me wearing the beanie:

Me wearing the shirt/dress:

I'm very short and petite so I'll probably wear this as a dress with tights underneath. And I hope you can excuse the bathroom selfie... There was no one around for me to coerce into taking a photo of me. I don't know if you can tell from the photo but misscrafty29 hand dyed this shirt/dress Smiley

She also embroidered the venus symbol (but with a heart) onto the arm. It looks a little wonky in the photo because I'm twisting in a weird way, but in person, it looks fantastic and I LOVE it! The feminist in me got really exited to see it!

Anyways, that's my awesome package! I loved it all! Thank you so much MissCrafty29!!

Everything is cute... That skirt is awesome, and I love the color of the book cover!
