Sewing is not the only crafty thing I do. For instance, I am an avid friendship bracelet maker, and for some reason I can't stop making envelopes out of everything I can get my hands on. (p.s. I love mail!)
Okay, and I cook and I bake too. Yum!
I haven’t posted in forever. I haven’t done much sewing lately. It’s been sad, dark times. But I’ve been doing about a manicure a week to keep the creative juices flowing.
Here’s my latest and greatest.
Yuri’s Night is thus Saturday. Have a Nominal Yuri’s Night!
How to sew a built in bra!
THANK YOU DAUGHTER FISH
A quick cross-stitch pattern inspired by the “Fangirl” cover (I haven’t started the book yet, but from what I read, it seems like the sort of coming of age novel that I have wanted to appear in YA fiction for a while now).
In case anyone would like to stitch it, DMC colors are (but feel free to adapt with the ones you own already):
My roommate asked if I could make a hot rice pack for him. I’d made one before, and this time I wanted to make an even better one! So I did. It’s about 16 by 7 inches, with ribs every 1.5 inches. I filled it with sushi rice. Very happy with how it turned out. Also, was glad to find a use for the awesome monster fabric I found.
Product of today’s work. 3 down. 8 to go.
It’s kind of loud, I know. I don’t really know what I’ll do with these blocks. I just want to practice piecing, really.
I call it: Dinosaurs Never Had Shoes.
I really should never go shopping at SAS. They must periodically get shipments of remnant fabrics, cause there’re these 2 piles of pieces that are all about a yard or less, and sometimes these piles are 3 feet high—maybe it’s 4 feet. It’s all $4 a yard, and if you really look, you’ll find some stuff that definitely sold for a lot more than that when it wasn’t remnant.
I couldn’t hold back. I picked out a few.
