1  tiny tulip pockets - Spring & Easter in Easter by perches on: March 31, 2011 04:01:58 PM
Lately my craft time has been filled with lots of small projects for family Easter baskets - fuzzy rabbits, giant crocheted flowers, pillowy lambs, etc. I wanted to make some pretty trinkets for my teenaged and twenty-something cousins, as well as for the young children of the family, and this project is one of the results:



These tiny tulips can hold small pieces of candy, maybe a message, or just be pretty adornments. Make into:
-little magnets for kitchen or cubicle
-hair pin or headband embellishment
-brooch
-softy
-flower wand/baton

2  Portrait + Hearts garland in Valentine's Day by perches on: February 13, 2010 02:40:58 PM
Inspired by Elsie's DIY Celebrity Valentines(1), I decided to make something personal and pretty to hang on the wall for Valentines.



I selected family photos with good face shots & cropped them to focus on the head/neck. Then I traced each photo with a black fabric markers (I use the Crayola markers - you can find them in the aisle with children's crayons & markers), ironed the fabric to set the ink, cut and hemmed them into mini portraits.



For the rest of the garland, I cut a small pile of hearts from two 8.5/11" sheets of felt (pink and red).



Attatch the portraits with a teeny stitch in each top corner. For the portrait hearts, I used a simple blanket stitch to attach a larger heart behind the main heart, both for color and to give it more stability while holding the "portrait." Sew all the hearts together with a needle &amp; some cranberry-colored embroidery floss and <em>voila</em>! Art on the wall for now, family memorabilia for later.
