My first soaps, glycerin in shades of orange, green, and purple. Delicately scented with green apple and wild berry. I'm also working on some skull shapes and pumpkins in fall colors and scents to use through harvest time and into Thanksgiving, as well as lollipop versions of all. I think they would be fun to give out at work at Halloween! I hope you like!
After I received my first Blythe I really got crafty again after a break. It is so much fun to make tiny little clothes for her! Here are some of the most recent things I've made, graciously modeled by my girl Maisy.
A winter hat set I made from super cute rainbow heart fleece. Features a hat, scarf, and little mittens!
This is the first thing I made for her. A vest, skirt, and little gold key necklace.
Next is a cute blue dotty tea length strapless dress.
Babydoll dress, so cute!
Cute little sockies
And two tube tops w/ cute little honey bee necklaces
Phew! That's it for the clothes, but I also re-vamped a boyd's bear bed for her too. It was originally hunter green, so I spray painted it white and made the little mattress!
I usually stick to making clothes, but after being busy with work and school I've really just wanted some instant craft gratification. So, I've started making some jewelry I've never made any before. I'd love some opinions.
The necklace is pretty long, it hangs to about between my boobies, and it has a larger set of sage colored faux pearls higher up the chain. This was just the best shot to show the detail.
These are just some simple dangles, I'm getting married in June so I'm obsessed with everything white and dainty right now. I'll try to get some better photos up tomorrow when there is light in my craft room.
I've been living in Kokomo for close to two years now and I just can't find or make any friends. I'd especially love to meet to craft or even just meet people around my age who share similar crafty interests. I'm 20 and desperate!
I usually spend way too much time looking at various clothing sites for inspiration. Well, I saw these really cute knotted headbands at UO and just had to have one right away. So far I have just made two, but I foresee making one to go with every outfit.
This one is kind of skinny, I made it from leftover scraps from a tunic I made a few days ago.
This one is fatter, after making the first one I decided I wanted the knot to be bigger. It's made from an old white tee.
And a close up of the knot. I adore these headbands, they are so easy to make and only take a couple minutes.
UPDATE: So, I ended up not adding the ruffle after all. I also don't have this chair anymore, it was horribly uncomfortable and for some reason I thought making it look cute would make it feel better for my butt . I ended up giving it to my little cousin, it shouldn't hurt her skinny 8 yr. old butt as much as mine.
If anyone is interested in how I did the chair, the bottom and the back part are just plastic pieces held on by screws, so I just took them off and spray painted them, and then screwed them back on after I covered the padded parts. As far as recovering went, I just cut out fabric in a similar shape as the chair parts, pulled it tight, and stapled it into place. It was pretty easy and took me about an hour to construct after the paint had dried. I recommend getting a staplegun, I don't have one and it would have been a lot faster had I not had to use a normal stapler! I am planning on getting a new computer chair, a much comfier one to do this to. Oh, and a staplegun.
Quite a while back I bought this olive green jersey knit fabric from joanne's for about 3 bucks. I finally took the plunge and made something with it. It had originally started out life as a cardigan, but I decided with summer coming up that I really wasn't going to be needing a cardigan nor will I be doing any layering (Indiana has incredibly humid summers!). It has a scoop neckline with some small gathering around it, the sleeves have armbands, there is a band around the bottom and there is an insert right down the middle with side pockets. Sorry for the bad pics, my apartment has terrible lighting, I had to stand on a chair in the bathroom to get any decent pictures, and my camera seems to be on it's last leg. Anyway, on to the pics!
I'm not sure if I like it yet or not. I still need to trim some seams and press them flat. There are a few mistakes, some weird puckering on the back of one of the sleeves, which makes me kind of hesitant to wear it out of the house.
