Not only did some great books arrive for me the other day, medicine and my bff showed up with some fun stickers for me but I also got a surprise get well gift from my best yet to be met online friend Mollie.
Look at how fun she is?! She even drew a signature Mollie smiley face on the ankle!
I already have a plan for making something fun based on this project.
Apparently, not only has this publication been around for a while, but it’s only published twice (?) a year. But I have to tell you it’s the cutest magazine, full of such eye candy.
I had one in my hand during one of my cross border expeditions but I passed on actually purchasing it. I regret that now. It’s hard to find now since it’s published in January, and I’ve found it once here in Canada and it was $15 which just sort of breaks my brain and I can’t part with all that money for it.
I did find a download for a bit cheaper online, well I think it was $10 so not *that* remarkably cheaper.
I tried to be a cheater pants and take screen shots of parts of it but they seem to be onto that sneaky trick. You’ll just have to trust me it’s a super fun magazine. Find a copy and flip through it.
when I’m buried in larger projects and I just want to make something fun start to finish I do just that.
The other day was one of those days, so I made these.
Technically I suppose Chewie should me much, much taller than R2 but hey, fingers only vary in size a teeny bit.
Ok so here’s the tutorial for last week, the little macaroons. I finished mine last night.
It’s pretty cute. It’s also pretty tiny and other than storing or giving rings/earrings I’m not sure what else I could do with it.
I also had a problem, see if you can figure it out.
Yeah, there’s no way I can get the inside pieces in. I might have to get a slightly smaller size. I’m not sure if the fabric I chose for the outside is too thick, it’s a Japanese cotton/linen blend. Or if it’s just all to bulky in there.
But the good news is no one will ever see in there since this is my little macroon and at least it looks great from the outside!
Next up is this charming little brooch. Now this is a great project because it’s hand sewing, uses felt and creates an accessory and that fits with my goal to accessorize more!
I’ve been dying to try to make this, but I can’t find a foam heart shape anywhere!! Despite Valentine’s Day quickly approaching. So I decided to make my wreath project with a Valentine theme.
I was going to use paper for all the hearts but worried about it standing up to the cold and damp if i chose to hang it on the front door. So I used pieces of felt.
I used a multicoloured yarn to wrap around the foam wreath, there’s no way I’d be that uniform in my colours!
