here is a commission that i had done for a friend and a sugar skull on a pair of old jeans that i'm turning into a mini skirt (the skull is a pattern from sublime stitching and the cat is based on a drawing).
so, life has been dealing me some difficult cards, but i am still crafting. here is a quick catch up with the ties that i've been working on. i've been talked into making a few and having a friend sell them at a music festival, so here's hoping they sell! :)
i just had my first roll of film from my lovely pop lomo from Elabeth. not all of them turned out, because i'm still learning how to roll film (i accidentally exposed a bit) and i'm still learning how to work the camera.
the first pic is with the yellow filter and the other two are with the blue. one turned out purple and pink, but i want permission from the folks in the pic before i can post it.
the other day, i hit a cache of the discontinued "love, elsie" line of scrapbooking products at tuesday morning which really inspired me. i've been scrapping like mad and i'll try to post pics of those soon.
Forgive my work webcam pic, I'll post better pics of this soon with my friend modeling.
This is a tie I found whilst cleaning my mess of a room recently. It was going to be a gift for someone else, but the idea was too awesome to let gos. My Valentine, Dennis, promised to wear it all of the time if I made it, so here it is.
I drew the robot, then most of the pencil wiped away, so this was pretty much freehanded. Haha.
The robot ended up bigger than I planned (his claws extend on the other side of the tie) and there are only two claws per hand (I have been informed that robots have at least 3 claws on each hand). But, hey, I'm learning.
Anyone know where I can get cool blank ties to play with?
Here are two headbands I made this past week. The first is the hipster headband that I've seen all over the interwebs. I took the leftover fabric from my Lebowskifest shirt and made a braid. The second one is inspired by a $15 headband I saw in the maill that I recreated for $2. Ha, take that. :)
My friend Elizabeth gave me a lomo, so I'm currently falling in love and taking 35mm pics. If anyone knows of any good lomo sites, hook me up.
On Friday, I made a t-shirt for a friend's birthday party that was "The Big Lebowski" themed. It's not too impressive, so no pic (for now?).
Saturday, I made this lovely: a brownie pizza. My grandma used to make me one for special occasions growing up and it's one of my favorite desserts ever. I just had to veganize it!
The crust is a double choc brownie mix with cherries, the sauce a vegan buttercream frosting, and topped with blackberries, kiwi, and mandarin oranges. It was pretty tasty. I think that I put my Grandma to shame. :)
here is the tote bag that i embroidered for my dear friend, Shelby S. it doesn't feel complete. i need to clean it up (some of my pencil marks are still on it), but i want to do something more with it. suggestions? it's my first tote bag to embroider and i used cotton ease yarn so that it would be washable.
and because i'm all about kids with cameras, here is a pic that my 3 year old friend, Althea, took of me
I decided to do Craft or Bust 2010. For a few years now, I have been wanting to do a craft blog and maybe joining this will help me.
A little about myself: I am 25, I live in Arkansas, and I am into many crafts. I knit pretty basic stuff, I have mad scrapbooking skills, I make some jewelry, I bake vegan goodies, and I am learning how to embroider.
School starts this week, so I am not sure how much craftiness I can get done, but I will certainly try!
