For today, fun pink shell koi become a pair of swimming earrings. I liked the copper findings as a contrast to the bright pink!
I’ve started working on Refia from Final Fantasy III. Since I’ve made other faux metal and armor from craft foam and had a lot of success, I decided to go that route with this small piece. It’s made of two layers, one for the base, and the other with the cross shape. The entire piece is covered with white glue which stiffens the foam and makes it smooth for spray painting. A little gold spray paint, and it’s done!
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!
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.
