Day 18 Birds & Elephants

I tried to modify the Wee Wonderful Pig to make an elephant. I think the trunk needed to be a little longer. I think I'm going to make more of the Mama & Baby Bird for a tunic applique.

DAY 18 Good Will and Peace on Earth! :D

So today - my co-worker Carolyn totally hooked me up with TONS of tees from her goodwill trip on her lunch break! SO when I got home my first order of business was to hook her up with an awesome Carolina dress for her future lil girl! hee hee! Then I made a dress from an awesome Elvis shirt that another co-wokers Shearon brought me!

Day 17 I'm in love with a jumper.

Okay soooo I sorta fell in love with this one tonight and I have to keep it. Seriously I can't let it go. So it is now hanging in my closet. It was the last large piece of the pink Lecien linen and the heavier weight charcoal linen that I used for the tunics. I was going to put it in my shop but I just can't at least not tonight, LOL.

CSL Day 17 Where the Green Fern Grows...

I have had this awesome medium weight fern print for two years - I found it at an antique shop - it's gorgeous - I paired it with vintage eyelet for the sleeves - GORGEOUS - its size 2. I only had enough fabric to make one dress - if you want it - better get it!

Shutter Cal

I got a message on Twitter about a website called Shutter Cal. You can create a photo calendar. The effect looks really nice when you upload your photos. It looks especially great with the 365 Day Challenge. I uploaded all of my pics from the challenge thus far to my Shutter Cal. Let me know if you create one so we can link up :) I can't wait until the entire year is full!!!!

Day 14 - Lots goin on!

Today - I had to make the jumper in the upper left hand corner for the winner of my giveaway on Random Neural Firings. When I use the last of a fabric that I love I always make something small that I can keep as a momento of the fabric - so I made a case for my sunglasses in the lower right corner.
The dresses in the opposite corners are from the box of tees that Cammie sent me and the dresses will be going back to her for some rock out pics!
I will probably sew some more b4 I go to bed - who knows!

Day 14 Business Card Holder

I can't wait for my cards to get here!!! :) Notice Candy Stick Lane cards look super cute in my business card holder and the best thing about it.... is they fit and on my first try. I thought this would be easy to do after doing the crayon roll!

Day 13 Pattern & Tutorial Binder

I am having a massive migraine headache week. Yesterday and last night was the worse. I did make a and organizational binder for the items I have been making for the 365 Day Challenge :) I'm using the clear pocket protectors and inserting either notes, pictures, patterns, sketches, or tutorials in a 3 ring binder. (All items recycled from my school stash)

Day 11 Halloweeeeenies & Sweet Treats

My friend Chadster used to decorate Halloween for Christmas. I'm not sure if he still does or not but I had him in mind when I made these.

I am so happy that my ice cream cone with sprinkles came out. I'm still working on a better scoop. But I LOVE the sprinkles. The cookies I make every year for ornaments.

Day 10 Piggy & a Popsicle Ornament

I got the pattern for the piggy ornament from Wee Wonderfuls. The Popsicle I made up as I went a long I think the next one I'll use a real Popsicle stick. I've cut out alot more pieces for tonight but this is as far as I'm getting. If someone wants to bring a box of popsicles over I'm ready to be a little piggy myself (hint, hint)

Day 7 Artsy Fartsy Loungers for Isabel

Day 7 Crayon Roll

Today I made a crayon roll out of some pieces that were too small to make any clothing out of. I am in love with both of the prints. I had written down some things for Mr. C's mini-me for Christmas. A crayon roll was on the list. Next time I need to measure or maybe look at a pattern first. The first and last slot for crayons are a SUPER tight fit. It holds 16 crayons.

Day 6 (although Im posting on day 7)

We went to the fair last night and didnt get in until 2:30 in the morning and I couldnt pull it together enough to get the pic on here! LOL! I made these ponies from buttons i covered with AWESOME fabric that Joan at Bitsy Creations on etsy made for me from my favorite stamps ever. They were the floral series from 08 - the colors were awesome - so I scanned the stamp images on the comp and edited out the 42 cents - spaced them out more - sent the images to Joan and she rocked my world with the most incredible fabric! I LOVE THEM!

Day 5 & 6 Polkadots and Who screams for Ice Cream

Day 5 I made a polka dot dress that reminds me of chocolate. I had major issues with the button holes. I am going to have to get some more of this fabric.I baked these scoops of ice cream this morning, vanilla, strawberry and chocolate. I tried makings some in bowls for pendants but the bowl flattened out and looks like a shiny nickel instead. After being out and about all day I made the stacked scoops into earrings.
Have a great weekend!!!! Oh yeah and don't forget if you would like to win a sushi bracelet that I made with charms from day 4 enter the giveaway! Happy creating!
