I have never seen sun catchers like that!

Yep, another Pinokeeo's original.  I started making these a couple of years ago, and I "think" I've finally got one for everybody on my giving list. Roll Eyes  Everybody I know has a different interest, so it's sometimes a challenge to find the right things to go in them.  But, they are fun to make. Cheesy

Thanks.

Really pretty.  It looks like you've got a lot of patience -those look hard to make.  I'm impressed.

Smeddley, I love the new outfit, especially the top. I like how you put the lacy, sparkly fabric on the sides. Did you dye the skirt?

Yes, and we swore none of our costumes would ever have black-dyed skirts again.  That was the hardest thing EVER.  That particular skirt didn't end up as black at the bottom (they are supposed to be variegated white-grey-black) and she is quite tall, so I added the black ruffle on the bottom as well.  I have one more to sew, a backup (people come and go from our troupe, so we need extras) and then I am so done with those skirts!

...and this time I mean it!

Smeddley: I love those Star Wars bookmarks!!

Thanks, they were dead easy... just print, cut, and laminate!  I feel guilty for counting it as a craft, but I did have to cut lots of straight lines, so...  Cheesy

Pinokeeo, love those suncatchers!

I've not been commenting much, been busy procrastinating my latest custom order. Everything is gorgeous though!  Wink
It's finally done though. It really wasn't that time intensive, I just got bored really easy, and it only got worse as the project dragged on and on. Finally today I said, enough! 8 days for 30 tiny flowers is silly, especially when I can knock out 2-3 an hour.

My niece gets married in 2 weeks time and the Vicar has given permission for her husband-to-be to have his dog in the service. I made Dibble a wedding collar using fabric from the grooms kilt and ribbon from their invitations  Cheesy

I've also made them a little birdie with the same materials but forgot to snap a pic. I'll add one later.

Love the whole concept there.  And the collar is very nice.

Thanks Pinokeeo  Smiley I've also saved pieces of the fabric for when they start a family so I can make a special soft toy.

Super simple, not sure it even counts, but... I re-purposed a stuffed animal and turned him into a screen cleaner.



I cut and sewed the screen cleaning cloth to his belly.

Everything else I'm working on is swap related and can't post till received.
