kookaloo i adore that hat! so cute!

i made a dress with a yard of fabric by tracing a tank top... problem is, i forgot to take into acct that the tank top had more stretch then the fabric

i am seriously holding my breathe and tummy in when taking this pic and could never wear this dress comfortably. i could get it on and barely get it off and the stitches were tight down the side when i was trying it on... lesson learned  Sad it could have been so cute.
i will probably give it away
oh well
at least i destashed a yard  Tongue

2  cheap glass jar = perfect doggie treat container in Crafty Housewares: Completed Projects: General by aprettymess on: May 21, 2012 09:56:17 PM
hello! today i was running around a few shops and spotted this good size glass jar for $5. it seals really good and i thought it perfect to decorate for my dog's treats.
so here it is... all 4 sides of it  Cool

my 2 dog's names are Theodora and Penelope. Thea has the sun because i have always sung "you are my sunshine" to her. and Penny has a bat because i have always said she looks like a bat when she is laying down and her ears point up (she's a lab) and her teeth come out all vampy.

anyhow, i know my artist skills are just about where they were when i was 8 but i love this jar nonetheless and it makes me smile

c+c welcome
thanks for looking!

6 months ago i lost an aunt who was my mommy. in starting to clean up the pieces of life i decided to use some of her clothes to make pillows for the family. i only made 3 so far but have a few more planned.

i haven't done much more than sleep, work, and study this week. ive been starting to pick up the pieces from losing my tia 6 months ago and that has emotionally drained me
last friday i went through the first batch of my tia's clothes because my tio wanted to donate whatever i was not going to keep. i tried on the clothes and kept what fit and looked well. (she crocheted so much of her tops! amazing stitches... gorgeous!) i also kept what i could use in crafts.

first thing i made was pillows for my tio to help him when hes lonely and as a thank you for letting me keep anything i want.
i will be making more pillows for other family members and myself

i also cut up some old scrubs form work to make tank top dresses or summer shirts but didnt get further than cutting. i used all the scraps to make toys for my pups and they are going nuts with them  Grin
