this is one of my first attempts at making a card! It's inspired by a tutorial found in a 1975 crafting encyclopedia. i used a pencil eraser to make the polka dots, and cut out the bird by hand. it looks a little childish, but i guess that suits my aesthetic perfectly. what do you think?
Hey! I'm half satisfied with this project. I really wanted to reshape the wreath. I soaked it for days and nothing happened. Does anyone know what I may have done wrong? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!!
a mohair tube scarf, inspired by Leigh radford's "Alterknits", that i knitted for my mother. the fabric inside is a bed sheet from montgomery ward. which i cut down and hemmed. (my grandmother used to work there).
i used three balls of rowan kidsilk haze in a discounted color, and casted on an obscene amount of stitches. it took forever.
i made this from a vintage bed sheet and stuffed it with 2 standard pillows tied together.
i followed the tutorial at AT almost exactly, i just changed the size to a 30"X30" square and stuffed the corners with fiberfill to fill in the corners.
i was kinda afraid of sewing velcro. I haven't before. i though the thread may catch on the rough side. it really wasn't a big deal. i did, however, put the fiberfill in after i put on the velcro. i had to pick it all out of the rough side. lawlz.......
