My list in no particular order:
THE WIST : http://www.wists.com/obsessaholicPurses and sewing:Jewelry and beading:Other stuff:DIY Kits: I need instructions and pictures, I'm a visual learner!
- beadmaking kit. tools, beads, clasps, you name it, I'll take it.
- bookbinding kit
- embroidery kit - instructions/patterns, embroidery thread...
- a knit cabled belt. I saw it in SnB nation. Maybe in a creamy beige or off white?
- an argyle headband: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=74104.0 The colors in the thread are pretty cute. but maybe cream and tan (with tan as the big diamonds with the X in them), or cream and brown (with cream as the big diamonds with the X in them) or light pink and heather grey? (pink as the big diamonds, just like the pink in the picture. Please use fingering or sock yarn so it is thin like the pattern calls for. If you need any measurements, let me know
Okay, about me: I'm 23, live in Jersey. I'm girly. Not lace and toole girlie, but I do embrace my feminine side. I like art nouveau style jewelry. I guess my style is more classic and sophisticated, with just a hint of trendy. I've come to learn that trends change so quickly, so might as well stick with things that will stand the test of time. I like colors with warm undertones, I'd pick a cream shirt, over a white one. Bold colors look best on me, as opposed to colors that look washed out. But, think of bold as a strong color, not primary or pastel. So for jewelry, maybe green and amber, or warm pink. merlot. olive, sage, plum. I dont like punk or vintage (except in the case of classic sophisticated jewelry) . If I had the money, I'd shop at arden b, bebe, nordstroms. I have allergies, so please keep things pet hair free if you're working with fabric. Whoever claims me, please PM me with what you're making and any questions you have, and I'll try to be more specific.
To whoever picks me... THANK YOU in advance for whatever you choose to make for me!
