This fabric is just so adorable. Paired with snuggly soft flannel, luscious minky, and absorbent terry cloth, it also works as the perfect baby gifts.
Prepping for the Huntington Valley Arts and Crafts Fair all month! Here are a few pieces. I got these adorable table top frames at A.C.Moore and really enjoyed making these tiny inspirational pieces.
I have been working feverishly, hoping to get a large number of hoops done for the Huntington Valley Arts Craft Show in two weeks.
So far I’ve managed these lovelies.
I love Halloween, and O’s great friend R loved it as well. So I found some adorable fabric at a fabric store, bought it on impulse, and then found a dress pattern. I used the Janey Jump Around pattern from Peek-a-Boo Pattern shop and it all came together while O and R were in school. I love it and R loves it. My first knit dress!
I took O to Michaels Craft Store yesterday – I needed supplies and he was up for an adventure. While there, amazed at the Halloween decorations out already, O picked out a little wooden coffin. It laughs when you open the lid. He said a mummy lives in it. Named Michael.
Naturally, we made a tiny mummy for the coffin today.
We started with a “skeleton” made of a decorative ball (meant for centerpieces and wreaths) and pipe cleaners.
We gathered our supplies – an old pillowcase, glue, and scissors. We made cuts in the fabric and then ripped it into strips. And began glueing. The best technique turned out to be making a pile of glue and dragging each strip through the glue.
It took concentration.
We let Michael dry almost all day. He is still a little damp and we are unsure if we will add a face. But we are pleased and Michael has now told me that he likes mac n’ cheese with lots of salt.
All in all a fun – and surprise – project! And totally kid-driven.
A dear friend is performing at the Banjo Hall of Fame. And I thought he needed a new tie for the event.
This is my first tie and my first time working with silk. The fabric was gifted to me years ago and I kept it for a special occasion.
I rarely see folks in need of ties these days, but should someone else need one, I can make one!
