I swear I'm going to do this stuffie doll idea!!! Unfortunately, for me, this is no quickie craft *lol*
I seriously sat around for, like, a half hour working out how I wanted to do it, and I lacked the confidence to actually take scissors to fabric I will soon though, & I will share!! *I am determined!!*
I did, however, instead of making the doll, make a pincushion. I've wanted one for a while, & I figured it would be a good pre-project
Is it possible to dye yarn using a tie dye kit?? Cuz, well, I did give it a try & it toooootally didn't work ~ should I have bought a different kind of yarn (I used Red Heart, & yes I know it's far from top of the line stuff), or is the issue with the dying technique (as in, could anything be added such as vinegar or bleach to make it work better)??
"Helloooo?" *echoes* Did I jump on the bandwagon a lil too late?! LOL Oh well, I'll continue on until August, when there are no more suggestions (so far)...
Here's my pillow. It's also pretty ghetto, hahaha. This was the first pillow I've ever made, so thanks to this CAL for the inspiration, as well as happykat's "Awesome pillow from company work shirt" post - I wanted tom make this because my boyfriend & I have been together for a year & have been living together for 6 mos. We met at work, so I thought I'd make a throw for our couch to remember all the fun we had there
It's a lot darker than my camera's flash will allow, so you can't see the stain LOL - I didn't even notice it at all until I took the picture LOL
Well, I've been working on this guy for a lil over 2 weeks. I was trying to put something together for while I'm walking through the woods or riding my bike, and I figured patchwork would be the smartest thing to do with the fabric at hand (Wal Mart bandanas, lol). It's completely hand sewn, since I don't have a working sewing machine. And, well, I think it turned out fairly well considering the minor boo boos I'd encountered along the way (such as one side being wider than the other, lol).
Here it is on display (on my un-vacuumed floor, haha)
Here's the sligtly ghetto interior (I'm definitely doing the strap a lil different with the next bag I make - this one's a lil ghetto, lol)
And, of course, an "action shot" - pardon my PJs, I was lazy hehe
I decided to start with aura because nothing comes to mind yet with hyena. So, I remembered seeing an aura quiz on blogthings.com, so I took the quiz & got "blue aura". I built the card off of descriptions of people who have a blue aura. They tend to be natural caretakers, always wanting to help others, thus the picture of a woman with her daughter & the heart. They also tend to be introspective, thus the tiny journal. They're "true" dreamers, thus the cotton cloud. And I felt the need to jazz it up a bit with some blue rays covered with glittery nailpolish eminating off the picture to enhance the "aura" feel. Hehehe.
