This was a plain black frame that was lying around on my floor, getting kicked out of the way for about a year. I finally got up the gumption to do something with it and here's the end result. I made one similar to this with striped paper for a christmas present, but was stupid and didn't get any Pics. This one has a matching background with a fabric flower accent and a vintage button center.
This was such a beat up old jewelry box that my boyfriend was going to throw away...but real wood anything is so hard to come by these days that I snatched it up and waited until an idea came to me. So it eventually did and I decided to paint it a light mint green color and decoupaged the rest.
I got really sick of having my needles scattered all over the place so I decided to make a holder for them. I used the pattern by in the back of the first Stitch 'N' Bitch book. I just used several cute fabrics that I had laying around. Incidentally this is also my first real finished sewing project other than a pillow case. Feeling a bit accomplished here.
I made these 2 hats for Christmas presents. The one on my head is for my sister who is battling cervical cancer. She hasn't lost her hair from her treatments, but if they have to do more she might, so I felt a snuggly hat might be a good present. The second hat was actually my first attempt (I made the pattern up as I went) and it came out too small...so it's going to my boyfriend's niece who is 5. Let me know what you think!
Hi, I was just wondering if anyone can recommend me a really good ink for rubber stamps. I've tried "Ink it Up" and "Craft Smart Dye Based" and they both just left a blobby, blotchy mess. VersaFine is pretty decent and I get a fairly clear stamp, but can anyone recommend anything better?
