It has taken me a while to get into feathers… mostly because I didn’t think they went with my curly hair. But I think they do work with curls! Yay, I’m experimenting.:) So, I found these feathers buried in a closet (with some help, thanks mom!) and got right to making a pair of earrings.
- Two ear wires
- four crimp beads (big enough to fit the wire and feather in together)
- A small amount of wire
- A few accent beads
- The two feathers
I made a loop with the wire and twisted them a bit to make a stopping point, and then put the beads on. To secure the feather all you have to do is put the crimp beads on the wire and then slide the feather in the crimps. Then I just attached the ear wires. It only took about 20 min.!!!
I hope I don’t start wearing them too much, ’cause I love ‘em!
I use jars to store a lot of my crafting do-dads, only thing is they’re not that pretty.:) So I decided to try to make them a little easier on the eyes with some burlap, lace, ribbon and paper!
I think this top one is my favorite!
Camera strap covers are amazing! They make your camera so much more comfortable to wear and look so cute! I’ve been wanting to make one for some time and thought the jelly rolls of fabric I just bought might be wide enough to use, they were! I made both of these in the same afternoon, they were very quick and easy… even for someone that doesn’t sew that much. *wink*
And I just might post a tutorial later on… I haven’t decided yet.:)
I love making tribbles!!! They are so fun and quick, much easier and quicker than making dishcloths! The pattern is found here. Love making these in the car! Photos taken on my new quilting cutting board, yay!
I am in love with this bonnet!!! It is soooo cute! And it knit up so quickly, it practically flew off the needles! I found the pattern here. I made it last year wanting a quick and easy knit and this was perfect!
About two or three years ago I made this bag and it didn’t turn out how I imagined it would, so I set it aside for awhile. Later that year I tried to fix it up with a little embroidery and was very pleased with the result, and decided to give it to Mommy for her birthday that year. The pattern for the bag can be found here.
I added the button and flap to keep the bag closed better, and I also made the cover on the button. For the button cover I just knit a (mostly) round piece in stockinette, placed it on the button and flipped it over, and then sort of gathered all of the outer sides by sewing the outer edges and then pulling them together like you would for the top of a hat. Hope that made sense!
