Doctor Who Gift Wrap

When I made the Sonic Screwdriver Earrings for my friends birthday I knew I had to wrap them right…


Yep, I copied the Doctors’ styles! Mwahahaha!!! I have never seen the show before, but Google came to the rescue and helped my figure out what was special and unique to the two most popular doctors.

I gotta say how much I loved the way they turned out, pretty much exactly as I imagined them! Which is strange, that doesn’t usually happen!:D

Sonic Screwdriver Earrings

Before I show these to you, let me just start by saying no. I have not seen Doctor Who…

But I knew my friend was a fan, so I decided to make her some fan gear for her birthday. After searching around for a bit I came across some earrings that looked like this and decided to try making my own with the materials I had on hand…

And yes, I had to make a doctor hair bow for her too…

I loosely followed THIS tutorial for the bow, and like I said used what I had for the earrings. I think she really liked them!

Another Lanyard

I made this lanyard as a Christmas gift for my brother. This one was harder to make than the last one that I made in September of 2012. It’s a bit longer than the first lanyard, I didn’t even trim the length of the original jelly-roll strip that I used!

Saartje’s Beauties

I finally tried out Saartje’s Baby Booties pattern from Ravelry found here. This is such a great pattern!!! I will be using it again and I highly recommend it! It it slightly difficult because of the straps and all of the loose ends/sewing… but that said it was well worth the effort! It only took me one afternoon to make them… granted it was an afternoon of football games on TV during vacation, but still. :wink:

Earring day!

I get inspired some days to make a TON of whatever I’m working on… stacking bracelets, knit coasters, drawings, earrings. I just had an earring day, I made five pairs!!! The sad part is I will probably not feel like making earrings for a while now…

Two pairs that I gave as a gift…

The other three…

The Lanyard Gift

Oh I’m so happy I gave this a go! I think it will be one of my new favorite things to sew! What is a great gift for someone who just got their drivers licence? A lanyard to carry keys! I was inspired to make this when I saw the hardware pieces lying around in my jewelry making drawer, and I had been invited to a 16th birthday party… so:

Mwahaha, I have defeated you sewing machine! Success!

(I usually lose when battling it out trying to create something with the sewing machine) ;)
