Week 7: O+S Ice Cream Dress

YAY maybe I'm finally out of my sewing funk. I broke this dress into 3 days only sewing less than 30 minutes each day (not including cutting the fabric). I made this for my cousin's baby. The solid lime fabric I had in my scraps and the beautiful print was from Renee. I can't wait to see this worn!! YIPEE

Week 6 Birthday Surprise :) Pincushion Ring

I had to wait to post this so the birthday girl would not see it. I made a polymer clay purple tomato pincushion ring. I wish I would have taken a picture of the packaging!!! It made me scream. It was so much fun to make and I was so happy that it made it to her in ONE piece :)

Week 6? Wow Am I ever late

Hello all!  It's been a rough few weeks trying to get things back on track.  I'd like to share that I have my own sewing room in the new house YIPPEE.  So here I go, my most recent creations as of last night/early am ;-)

These Burpies were made earlier ;-)

This Chenille lined Burpie was her freebie.  She scored on this one.  I wanted to test that train design

I really need to order some more tags but the place I used to get them from no longer does them.  I've been making my own for about a month.  It's awful.  Embroidering them on Twill tape.  Check out the last photo.  While I think it looks okay, it's too much of a pain.  SO any suggestions would be welcomed.  Thanks.

I'm going to try to catch up on what everyone's been creating!

Week 5

Week 5 - Massive Owl Pendant!

I had my eye appointment on Friday and I am finally getting lenses in the vintage Dior frames that I ordered off of Etsy last year. I should get them back in about a week. (I am so excited) Inspired by the oversize frames I decided to try to make an oversize owl pendant using polymer clay. The eyes are red Swarvoski's left over from the necklace from week 4. I brushed the entire thing with black oil pastel to give it a vintage feel before varnishing. She's huge and I love her.

My weekend of creations

Overall I had a pretty productive weekend... made several hats and a little something else.  ;)

My second 'minion' (from Despicable Me) attempt.

And this little guy was actually meant to be a monkey at first... but ended up looking more like a bear... so he's a bear!!

Week 2 & 3

I got a late start and missed week one.

Over the weekend I was on my way to take a bath and I got distracted by a recent ad for Black Swan and my overwhelming supply of makeup. (Temptaion won!)

My nephew turns 13 years old today!!!! He requested that I make him two T-shirts. I hope that he likes them....

(I used 2 cotton T-shirts & Fabric Markers. I looked up images on the internet for inspiration and drew these freehand. I started out not liking Godzilla but ended up liking him more then the robots).

What is next? I have the supplies to make a necklace for Mr. C's mom and I have got to get started on my GaGa costume. I'm still on the search for some supplies.... (hmmmm think bad 80's prom dress with big shoulders in black or red or any combination of in my size....)

We have been searching the thrift stores and Ebay. If I do not find it soon I'll be making the entire thing from scratch.

I can't wait to see everyone's creations!!! :D Happy 2011.

My first submission!!

So I am a total newbie to submitting my Creative Challenge Projects!!  Woot!  I am excited to get motivated and fully participate this year!  Who's with me?!?!?

My project tonight was a Sock Monkey inspired pouch for my Blackberry!  Isn't it cute?!?!  The sad thing is that this project took me the same time to make as it does to make a newborn hat.  (It has a tiny button on the back for closure.)  It seems I've been going all kinds of sock monkey crazy lately.  :|

What kind of crafty have you been lately?  Hmmmm?  We all want to know... and we know you're just dying to tell us.  Right?!?!
