The bags are packed and we’re ready to go….
Last week, Taylor and I had went to a pottery store and painted up a few pieces. Since the bisqueware has now been glazed and fired, they were ready to pick up yesterday. And here they are:
You can tell that we were in a “spring” mood, just check out those pastel colors!
The laundry is finished (o.k. I have a load or two to still fold) and the straighteningpurgingspring cleaning is done (until tomorrow’s deep clean) so today I can concentrate on doing something creative. My first priority is to make 2 more eye pillows for personal swaps. I got a head start on this yesterday by tracing the images off onto fusible web, but sill have lots of work to do. My second goal to to start cutting and sewing the Burda duro-ish top. It looks fairly quick to sew up – has anyone tried this pattern yet and can tell me about how long it took them to finish it?
I wish I could take credit for the items above because they are absolutely amazing in person! These are the swap items that I got from Luxie Lou – a polymer clay votive holder, heart shaped magnets, and the most adorable cheesecake charm. I’m in love with them all (Taylor claimed the charm for today)! If you’re looking for some great polymer clay items, be sure to stop by her store, you won’t be disappointed!
Now, on to sewing!
Since it’s Monday, I’m sure most of you are wondering what sorts of projects that may have been startedfinished over the weekend…..
I present to you, our Wee Wonderful Big Footed Bunny. It is a bit unconventional – using tattoo fabric is not what you might typically see for this cute stuffie, but Taylor requested it and she likes it a lot. I initially thought it would look like a rock star and we could name it as such, but Bret has already claimed naming rights – La Chupacabra.
Wow, the weekend is already here, Taylor’s spring break is almost over, and I’m still behind on housework. I’ve been working on the Wee Wonderful Big Foot Bunny Pattern. I’m just about finished, but have have had a booger of a time on the feet. I’ve ripped out stiches and tried over again a couple of times, so I think I’ll leave the they way they are. Anyone done this pattern and have some tips? Today will be a day for stuffing it, giving it some features, and maybe some clothes. Tomorrow, I’ll be posting pictures!
What is everyone working on this weekend?
I’ve been very excited about the Hoodie Apron since I first ran across it. Now that I have one in my hands, I’ve been ‘planning’ how this apron should look. However, the first one I make will not be for me.
Yesterday, I took Taylor shopping and when I came home, I had wonderful packages waiting for me! First, my Hoodie Pattern order (from Kris) arrived (she even sent me a wonderful sample cut for the Amy Butler Lotus line, sigh, I’m in love with the print!)! I’m so excited to get started on the apron (more on that in tomorrow’s post).
My second package was the chain link fabric that I had ordered! The photo on the left is my inspiration top from the Macy’s website. I’m hoping that I can get started on this pattern soon.
