I posted this first at the other section, I didn't know there was a jewelry section here, craftster is so amazing! Here is my first attempt in making a bracelet, I work at a craftshop and we sell lots of pearls and other things for making your own jewelry. So here's my Digital Garden bracelet in electro pastel colors:
I'm gonna make lots more now I got the taste for it! Maybe some matching earrings or a necklace.
I've made these little presents for my brother and his girlfriend. The first one is called 'Cookie' and has very cute button-hands. That's the one for my brother. The second one is a voodoo dollish creature. I will give that to that nasty girl who dates my brother. That'll teach here to laugh with crafts and felt making! It's not supposed to be only for girls!! Who may I ask invented the stitch needle anyway? Anyhow, I'd rather keep it and use it as a pushpincushion, but it's Christmass after all, and I've got a kind spirit.
First of all, excuse me for my bad english, I normally speak Dutch or French, so.. I'm still learning.. I've just started my first project with felt application. I'm doing it all by hand, because sadly my sewing machine (which I got from my mother) has broken. So, handstitching it is for the moment, which I really enjoy (allthough it's a bit more timeconsuming than machine stitching) I got this idea from an old seventies crafting book, but I made it totally different. It's just the topic that I borrowed. The four seasons. So here are some first pictures of the stil-in-progress-project. → → → Here you can watch the final stitches of my project! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bIcdPrpyUAo
The trees without decoration yet ↓
I'm new to this, normally I make illustrations, digital ones, so it's something very different to do. But I like the fact that one can actually feel the fabrics, the supplies and the whole physical thing of making something real. I would love to make a felt application of one of my illustrations. But that would be rather complex I suppose. But why not? Maybe after I finished the trees. My latest illustration ↓
