Christmas garland

December 17, 2012 § 2 Comments

I thrifted this vintage Christmas fabric last year. I made the bunting after Christmas in a week of motivation, go figure. And I have been waiting impatiently for the Christmas season all year to enjoy it! I’d say it is the focal point of the living room.

Birds

November 24, 2012 § Leave a comment

Last week I did a short holiday craft show. I haven’t sold at one for a couple of years. I still had an overstock of hats to sell and I earned a little cash, which is always nice. My husband has encouraged my to market my birds more. I made a wall installation that we love. I didn’t have a way to hang branches at the show, but I’m trying for craigslist exposure now. My basket of birds.

Modern nursery decor.

 

What I see today

So much to do. So little time. Though with the homeschooling I am strangely more productive then when the kids were in school.

Birds for mobiles. I have a craft show in Nov.

Four baby chairs and 7 adult size to refinish.

This amazing pile of Afghani beaded discs. I can’t decide how to use them. The best wall garland ever? They smell like tea.

A cuckoo clock to gift, here is the primer stage.

Pinterest project- tried my hand at baby cacti

I also needed a pincushion. I do love desert plants. Symmetrical succulents and a visit to spikey Tucson also influenced the making of these little stuffies. Some pinterest inspiration here. I used thrifted bowls, scrap fabric, floral wire to shape, and playground gravel.

Bunting in the round

August 6, 2012 § 1 Comment

I added color to the teepee over the weekend. These pole caps make me happy!

This was a trial error sewing project. I started with a bunting template, made it larger and sewed a sample. Adjusted and fitted until I like the look. I used fabrics I had.

A tip-top topper!

See the teepees here and here.

 

 

Teepee take 2

August 2, 2012 § 1 Comment

A picture posted earlier this week showed a glimpse of a newly made project. The picture below is the first teepee completed this year. It took many months but I got a feel for the pattern and the kids really loved it and used it often. But I just couldn’t love the fabric. So I sold it and went to work on take two.

I reinforced some heavy wear areas, and used a neutral canvas cloth.

Now it seems like a blank piece of art and I’m working on adding the finishing touches of color. It is still a favorite with my children, and much more to my taste. I love it!
