thing-a-day fifteen: day one of the copyskirt

Halfway there!


I’m attempting to copy this sandy-pinkish-brown paisley skirt in my green-blue-cream paisley fabric.  The pink one is one of my favorites, so I really wanted another in the A-line style.  Here’s the first day’s work: main skirt body and lining cut, sewn, and zippered.  The strips for the bottom ruffles are ready to go tomorrow!

thing-a-day fourteen: cracked but not broken


A little Valentine’s Day treat (and a little bit late… hey, I was celebrating last night!).  Chipped semi-precious stone and craft foam to make a pin.

thing-a-day thirteen: rosy toes


Maybe it’s not exactly crafting, but it’s definitely work!  In the really difficult, gotta sit on the couch for an hour way…  Anyway, red in honor of Valentine’s Day tomorrow!

thing-a-day twelve: Candy Heart Pin


I’ve seen a lot of similar style projects for the quickly-approaching holiday, and I wanted to do up one of my own!  Made with felt and poly filler, stitched on my machine with a sweet message and finished with my new favorite, the blanket edge stitch.

thing-a-day eleven: first felt beads


I’ve been dying to try a little bit of felting (just by hand, not brave enough for needle felting yet!), and I thought I’d make a few beads!  I’ve started off with this purple-yellow mix, one of my favorite color combos.

thing-a-day ten: gravity


Harkening back to my wordspell line, today I made a stamped necklace.  I’d purchased these pre-punched disks and hadn’t used them yet.  The addition of a bead of aventurine completes a planetary look.

thing-a-day nine: blue roses

I made this cute headband accessory by wrapping coils of felt into flat rose forms.  A little glue and ta-da!


thing-a-day eight: the mysterious fruit of the buttonberry bush


Buttons, felt, and a safety pin!  Easy peasy and cute as a.. well, you know the rest.  ^.~

thing-a-day seven: white and turquoise earrings

I’d meant to make these for my birthday party, but the outfit I ended up wearing didn’t need them.  I wanted to put them together anyway because the colors were just so fun, and I don’t have any HUGE earrings at the moment… so I need some!


Also I think this picture is funny and looks like an owl.  =)

thing-a-day six: circle skirt


A nice project for a Sunday, this simple circle skirt with a cotton lining.  I love this funky print!
