I've been crazy busy in the last few weeks!  So - here's a project I made that wasn't on my list but it is now!  Homemade maracas for my classroom!  So much fun!  And really pretty easy!

The materials I used for this include 3/8" dowel rods cut to a foot in length.  wooden toy truck wheels.  ping pong balls.  The noise-making aspect are BBs.  Cheesy  The person who originally made them used lead shot (like you use to fill a shotgun shell) but I couldn't swing $50 for a 25 lbs. bag.  So BBs it was.  Much cheaper and I'm still pretty happy with the sound they make.

Finished a Bday banner for my niece Victoria today!  I'm horrible with colors so I just did a single fabric for the background. Now to work on the Bday crown!

As always, you have all been doing some amazing work! And we even have a firework creator on here, WOW! I have been crazy busy for the last while and unable to post anything. San Diego Comic-Con was last week and I was rushing like crazy to finish all my costume pieces before leaving the country to attend. I nearly did so.. but there were a few things I was finishing up the night before in the hotel room.

The other thing is that my employer decided to terminate my job while they knew I was out of the country on vacation and unreachable. It was a horrible thing for them to do and Ive been in the curl up in a ball phase since I got back. I was hoping some of you might be able to suggest some names of fabric companies that design in-house lines or use freelancers because Id like to continue working in textile or graphic illustration if I can. I was told to look into Moda and Camelot Cottons, any other company names you can suggest would be great (I dont quilt so I dont have much interaction with patterned fabrics in my sewing life)!

On to the projects (the photos aren't great but I do plan on shooting the costumes later)!
C.A. Cupid cosplay:
-bow and arrow earrings
-bow and arrow ring
-arm guard
-screened gloves, made using butchers paper traced over a pattern I digitally illustrated
-screened tights, made using a silk screen of a pattern I digitally illustrated
-hair heart headband
-shoes
-bone wings



Frankie Stein Home Ick cosplay:
-bolt ring
-earrings
-shoes



Duela Dent cosplay
-overbust corset
-hat
-goggles
-collar / shoulder pads
-gloves / sleeves
-waist belt with backpack attachment
-flower broach with tube attachment
-backpack
-hip belt
-skirt / bustle
-leggings / garter straps
-leg warmers
-spats
-shoes



Thank you for letting me take over the thread momentarily with my images! Posting all the hard work I did is making me feel a bit better about life right now.

Phew, I finished Victoria's crown.  Her latest thing is bees...well she identifies all flying things as bees: this includes flies, butterflies, moths, actual bees, and once a lady wearing a yellow and black striped shirt.  LOL. Lana helped cut the flowers and decided how to position them.  (I was just going to have them upright.)  I like the symmetry and the fact that there are 2 flowers on it since she's turning 2.
I got Lana to model it for me before I sized it.  Smiley
