I have been away from craftster for a while and didn't read all the 200+ new pages. But I have made couple of things.

1. Wallet for me
2. Wallet for a friend (Birthday in 8.1.)

3. Shirt for my youngest sister
4. Shirt for me
5. Skirt for my middle sister
6. Skirt for me too
7. Coat for a friend
8. Bibs for my friends' baby
9. A hand puppet for friend's child.
10. At least a hand made card for my middle sister if she graduates in the spring. Maybe a present too.
11. Afghan for my youngest sister. It would be combined Yule and Birthday gift, so I have a whole year to make it.
12. Learn to make sweetened potato casserole
13. Travel sewing kit (for fixing clothes when travelling)
14. Some new shopping bags.
15. Tunic for my mother.
16. Fix friend's coat.
17. Fix friend's hoodie.
18. Another skirt for my middle sister.
19. Finish the crocheted top from Happy Hooker that I started at least couple of years ago.

My 9 used to be "Fabric book for the same baby. I'm planning to make appliqued and embroidered animals." but I realised that she'll be too old for baby books when I finish it, so I thought I'd make a hand puppet instead. Then about number 10. My sister became a biology teacher recently, but she's going to have a graduation party in July and I'll make her a card and something else then.

I think in one of the felting books I read recently it said something about being able to wet store-bought felt to soften it up.  If it's that cheap, you might try a piece.

Cute hat (and little one)!

And the t-shirt yarn looks so nice and even.

Hello Everyone!

Here is a picture of my sister's invites that I made for her bridal shower.  I made them to look like little seed packets, because the shower has a garden theme.



The innards is the info, you pull it out with the little ribbon.

They weren't on my list but they are now.  I made 57 of them.

Rock on!

Oh that's a cute idea! I don't think I've seen a garden themed shower before (would also make great baby shower theme...)

I did finish my shrug and to reward myself... I signed up to test another pattern Cheesy yeah I might have a crafting problem! But I certainly enjoy it!

Pillowcase nightgown from a tutorial over at Gingercakes. Super super adorable and it only cost me 99 cents. You can find more information and pictures here.

Inspiration without application is moot.

Felt is so versatile and so darn cute!

I would go with making the case a pouch...a lot of people (like me), like practical and pretty! Wink

I also love the button on the business card holder...I noticed it because I have a small collection of those buttons that I found in my MIL stuff...are they vintage?  Mine are made of this really hard plastic?

Could they be Bakelit buttons? http://www.ehow.com/how_5308535_tell-vintage-buttons-genuine-bakelite.html

Ok - so - I got pictures of the purple skirt I finished for one of my students.  They aren't great pictures but I forgot to take them Thursday when she was all dressed up for 5th grade graduation.


Her grandmother brought the skirt back to school on Friday so I could get a few pictures of it.  Please excuse the hoodie and sneakers.  It was like..  90 degrees or hotter Friday..  no idea why the child had a hoodie on! 


One more of the purple skirt - sorta...  These are my Orff Ensemble kids.  They play xylophones, drums, other random percussion instruments and sometimes recorders.  She's sitting on my lap and I'm somewhere in the middle of all those children.  But this is the best pictures I have of her being dressed up with the skirt on.

I'm also posting an update on my rainbow skirt!  I decided that Indigo was never going to happen...  It would take me FOREVER to find enough different cotton prints to make an entire tier so I combined Indigo and Purple to get me a step closer to having a finished skirt!!  Cheesy 

Now - I have to finish Violet (need 29 more squares) and Black (need 10 more squares).  I may try to finish both of those tiers this weekend by using duplicates of some fabrics.

And here's the fun picture...  where all the tiers of the skirt puddle on the floor as I lay them out across the kitchen counter.  yay!    Grin

I've been away from craftster for a while -- but I've still been working on my list!

Super excited that so far this year, I've finished knitting a pair of socks each month!  I'm on my June socks now, pretty light green ones, that I will probably get to keep for myself.


Rainbow socks for DD


Shawl for sis's birthday


Cardigan for DD


I also got completed (but can't find pictures right now) a shawl for DD, socks for my mom, socks for me, and some of DD's summer clothes - pj pants, a dress, and a shorts/tank outfit.
