Hey gang, I just posted about some awesome bows, and I just wanted to share with you a cylindrical study pillow I just made from the same fabric. I am actually using it right now, and it is SO comfy! My older sis is heading off to college, and so she will be taking this little beauty with her when she leaves.
I found this fabric at my local thrift store, I think it was a curtain, and I just love it so much. It is a printed canvas, but is really soft and worn. There is a mini tute on my blog.
Hey folks. I just got a section of wonderful fabric from my local thrift store and I just wanted to share some of the projects I created from that. First, here are some bow ties I whipped up while watching Doctor Who. I was inspired by his awesome bow ties, and although these are really just bows, the definitely warrant a "bow ties are cool" quote. So here they are.
I keep trying to put topics in the "Sewing in General" category, but I can't find a place for completed projects. Hmmm...Ah, well, miscellaneous topics is my friend.
Check out the tutorial on my blog.
Comments and criticisms are welcome. Or, if you feel like going on a Doctor Who, I love you, rant, feel free!
I made these flower hair clips the other day for my best friends littlest sister. I used craft foam for the first pink one, then I used felt for the other two. I loved making them, I think that the design is super cute, and, best of all, she LOVED them! Her hair is just getting long, and she wears them all the time, I might have to make some more for her soon. Maybe leaves in the fall. Here are some photos.
Keep in mind this pincushion is a lot bigger then the tomato ones. I love that it can hold all of my (very many) pins. I used some old scraps, old napkins that had been gifted to me. Anyways, hope you like it! C&C's welcome.
Here are some things I did, a while ago actually, now I am finally getting around to showing them to you lovely craftsters. In a bead store in my town i saw these wooden cats with SUPER looooong tails to hold rings, and I had a "Hey...I could make that!" moment. I made a cat as well, but I stepped on it's tail before I could take a photo, it is now effectively broken.
I hope you like them! The bunny holds rings on it's ears, the swan and snail hold rings on their necks. They are about three/five inches tall. C&C's welcome!
You can also see them, and my other pottery in my blog. (see link in my signature) Thanks!
Here is a brown glazed mug/tumbler that I made recently. I love making Faces on my pottery pieces, and I like to think of this kind of face as "face mugs part two". (To see Face mugs part one, or any other pieces, go to fingerprintclayworks.blogspot.com)
This mug was lovingly handmade on the table, the face was added to the mug after it was made. The clay used was a brown ceramic low-fire clay. Comments are welcome!
Here is a small crochet bird that I just completed. I had only ever crocheted hats before, so it was fun to make something small and cute, as is my usual. I also have been making little valentine-themed things for my family, here is an example, this little bat was made for my dad (the bat is at the end), I can't wait to be able to post my sister and my best friend's presents, but there is always a chance they will see them. Can't have spoilers!
YAY! comments are appreciated! Also, I need names, any ideas? Or any little witty bat sayings I could put on the card? Thank you so much!
