I made these for my bathroom. I found old dress pattern covers online, peinted them and then cut out the silhouettes in card stock. I put them on a brown and pink background as art for my neopolitan bathroom.
Heres a beanie pattern I made up a few days ago. I like it, it is a simple beanies that is very comfy

I wish the colors were better, but that's what happens when you have a camera phone. At any rate, I made this hat yesterday and was very excited about how it turned out so I thought I'd share. I know getting a good cloche shape can be hard.

I am probably butchering the spelling, at any rate I got macrame yarn from the thrift store a while ago and I'm not sure what to do with it. It's pretty thick and stiff but I like the color, it's a light sage green. I tried knitting with it and it doesn't work that well. Crocheting seems to work better but I'm still not sure what to make out of it. Dishcloths? a hat? a purse? any suggestions would be helpful
Inspiration hit the other day since it's over 100 degrees out and I made a tank top out of fabric I inherited from my mom. I used the Simplicity pattern 4317 and altered it slightly so it has a sash that ties in the back instead of a zipper. I love it! I'm wearing it right now. I have the same fabric in blue to make another
I have a bunch of empty wine bottles of varying wines hanging around the house and was wondering if anyone has ever tried to make them into liqud soap dispensers? The idea amuses me but I'm not sure how to go about doing it. Any ideas/tips/suggestions are greatly appreciated
This is a quilt I made for my sister for her college graduation. She loves butterflies and the color blue so that was the inspiration for the quilt. Of course as all projects go everyhting that could go wrong did, I kept running out of fabric, the measurements were off, etc. It was hand quilted and I used tension rods to hang the quilt to quilt it. Nonetheless, enjoy!
