( First Verse, complete! (but no mittens)Collapse )
The only thing I skipped was the 'warm woolen mittens', which I think would've been bad luck anyway. Given that just two weeks ago we had 14 inches of snow an hour south of here!
So today I made a thing. I am a first time poster and long time reader of this community and this is a very nerve racking thing to do as I have seen how amazingly talented all you other people out there in internet land are! This is a felt brooch based off the tumblr famous "you tried" star :)
Seems like holiday is around the corner, I received lots of travel wallet requests to make :D
I would like to show you some of them. You can see more photos and some stories about them in our blog.
Travel wallet, travel wallet everywhere....
Here are the shoes for my now-complete costume for the Sing Along Sound of Music on Saturday. Someone guessed that I'm going as 'girls in white dresses with blue satin sashes' and they were correct. I've also hit a few other items from the song with the overall ensemble. It's either clever or lame; I'm never sure which. The shoes were done with mod-podge, distressed lunch bags, nail polish, craft string.
Brown paper packages, tied up with strings.
Let me know what you think:

So I haven't posted here but I'm pretty proud of this so I wanted to share. A simple pillowcase dress for my 15 month old daughter. I just got a new fancy sewing machine and I haven't actually made any clothing since I was in the 6th grade. The majority of my sewing has been curtains, pillowcases and some baby blankets. I didn't use a pattern for this, just traced another dress of hers and allowed for seams and hemming. Only took about 35 mins to make (took longer to figure out how to thread the new machine!) :)
