So I make my daughters Easter dresses every year, but this year I decided to go with skirts.  I decided to use up some of the medium sized scraps I have by making them a little scrappy.  I thought they would be simple since they're just rectangles and triangles.  But once again I proved to myself that I really work better from a pattern.  I do think that they turned out super cute, after some frustration.  And they are totally from stash.  I'm particularly pleased that I used up every possibly usable bit of the red poppies--a couple of those panels were pieced together, but you can only tell if you know to look.

Dulcet, those skirts are lovely!
I'm glad I didn't take the craft supply diet pledge, because I just had the craft equivalent of a weekend long bender.  Cheesy  Craft store, hardware store, thrift store...But I did buy stuff to help me use up stash.
I made 17 key brooches earlier, and I have about 30 more in the works, to use up my stash of keys. Going to try to get them finished tomorrow, so I can get back to the rayguns.

Sooooo... It kind of counts as destashing, but kinda not... That's the down side to creating a usable product.... However, I'm a few scoops lighter in my dyes, and have converted about 6oz of fibre into yarn. (well more then that but i've not got pics of some of it yet.  i've got finish the one I have started before I do a big twist setting session - it saves water to do it in a big batch)
The yarns:

Ladybug yarn. #1 by SpinHeartSpin, on Flickr

Ladybug yarn. #2. by SpinHeartSpin, on Flickr

The results of my Dye day. Everything started off white! (as white as wool gets, anyway Smiley )

Random wool batts by SpinHeartSpin, on Flickr

What the lady bug started as. by SpinHeartSpin, on Flickr

The intermediate step from fibre to yarn:

Feels good to be spinning for the sake of it. Now just to use it up into something pretty.  I'm thinking toques.

And I love the scrapy skirts! So beautiful! I may steal that idea. They look like they are twirling even when standing still.

Dulcet, those skirts are so pretty. 

Susi, I have only used safety eyes so far which are ok for babies but there's always the chance of one failing so the embroidered eyes are even better.

Beautiful work Bella! I am so envious of ppl who can spin.

Two more monsters last night.


This is the one my youngest likes best. She's attracted to the weirdest things that girl.

Thanks!  CLM, I like the mucky work! Well, sort of. I do enjoy seeing it go from some ugly to shiny and lustrous. Then to batts and then to yarn and then to something wearable.

I love this skirts too.  I have a small stash of fabric that needs to be turned into clothes.... If only I could find my surfaces in my craft room...Undecided

When my girl was very young, she insisted that what she wanted to be for halloween was a spooky ballerina. So, adorable pink ballet outfit, and creepy white face makeup, black makeup around her eyes, maybe a line of red for blood...You get the idea. It was exactly what she wanted, but it was a hoot seeing the reactions! At first sight was an angelic tiny girl all in pink, prompting an 'aww', then as she got closer they saw the creepy makeup. Confused the heck out of them!
So yeah, sometimes sweet little toddlers like creepy stuff.  Grin
And I love your little monster plushies!
