Recent projects

I picked up the cutest piece of vintage fabric the other day at the antique store. I've been wanting to do something for curtains in my office for a while now but hadn't found the right thing yet until I happened upon the fabric. Here is what I came up with....

Here's a close-up of the bird I made from leftover felt from Ben's Halloween costume, rik rak, and scrap material.

I'm pretty pleased with the outcome! Especially since I really can't sew and didn't have a clue what I was doing. I plan to hang the ribbon loops up top from antique door knobs whenever I luck across those, for now it is hung with thumb tacks.

I then decided I needed a pincushion and found the coolest tutorial here.

This was so simple to make and I have a new website I am addicted to. I used the cap from a spray paint can because I wanted my pincushion to actually be cupcake sized.

I bought this window a while back with the intentions of putting scrapbook layouts in the panes. But being the perfectionist that I am I could never settle on just the right pictures to use since this would be a permanent wall hanging. Instead I popped the glass out, replaced it with chicken wire, and crackle painted the wood. Ta-da! I have a new bulletin board to go over my desk. I love it!

I also made the marble magnets from scrap pieces of scrapbook paper, even though you really can't see them too well in the picture. Here is where I got that idea.

My next project will be to make some fairies seen here inspired by the fabulous Vicki. I've already picked up the wooden spools. Now I need to get some cute full body shots of the boys....and of course some free time.

3 thanks for stopping by, i love comments!:
