What a pretty felt badge.

I made this dress for my daughter this afternoon. It was from one o McCalls easy patterns and actually was pretty easy. Best thing is daughter loves it.

Ffrogg526 ~ Yep, just plain old white crayon. I used to dye my hair with Kool-Aid back in the day, super colorful hair dye was not an option in my small town.  Tongue

While it is an option in my town, it's super expensive, and doesn't last long anyway. However Kool Aid is only $5 a packet or so - does the colour last long, and do you need to bleach first?

meleriffic That's a very pretty dress, and a very pretty daughter - she looks just like your avatar!

waggonswest That felt badge is darling!

waggonswest - very cute felt badge!  Those seem to be the next thing I think.  I've seen their popularity growing.  Or am I imagining that?

meleriffic - that dress is adorable!  I love it!

So - after jacking up my back with the cleaning bit this morning (fun times Roll Eyes ) I sat down and have just about finished the bag that is soon to be felted (hopefully).  I'm working on the handle right now and REALLY hoping that everything felts close to the same and that the entire bag shrinks by at least a third if not half!  Whether it succeeds or fails...  I will post pictures! Cheesy

$5???  It is 4 for $1 around here unless we have a translation problem as well as a currency issue?  PM me and we'll figure out how I can send you some!

I also use Kool Aid to dye roving.  $5 is a crazy price for it!  You can sometimes get it for 10 cents a pack here when it goes on sale.

You don't want to know the price of PopTarts, Peanut Butter cups or cans of American soda then. (Last time I saw PopTarts "on sale" they were $8 a box)

 I have so loved seeing others crafting and creating on here.

But right now, I am working two full time jobs, beginning a new business and am feeling more than a bit pressured.

 I can not remember a time when I did not want to have something in my hands at all times to work on, even something simple. But right now I don't even feel like working on a K2P2 in the round sock. The most mindless thing I do.

So if you don't see me around for a while or at least here much, I will be back in a few months at most.

Craft on!  Cheesy

$8 for a box of Pop Tarts...  on SALE???  Holy crap....  those were my standby in college because you could get them for like $2 a box at Wal-Mart.  Those and the traditional stereotypical Ramen Noodles.  lol

Ok - So.....  moment of truth...  the bag is in the washer being felted!  And I TOTALL forgot to take a picture of the before size for comparison!  That was what we would call an I.D.10-T error.  And I just heard the washer go to rinse cycle!
