a few things

I have actually been s l o w l y working on a few things. Inspired by Erin of House on Hill Road I am attempting little embellished tees for my nieces & nephews. I need to finish them off. I'm a horrible artist but I did draw them free hand. The froggie was patterned after the Purl froggie at The Purl Bee. The fishie is just a fishie.

I'm flip flopping between a couple of designs for this fabric.

So, not unlike many of my favorite bloggers out there I LOVE fabric however my sewing skills leave something to be desired. Needing easy project to use my favorite prints on... Projects for me that is. There is the obvious quilt, although you need large quantities for that and I am currently on a bit of a budget. I've done the fabric swatch portrait project from the Purl Bee. Pictures forthcoming. In what easy ways can I wear the fabrics I love? I love this idea at Wise Craft, but have no idea how to do it. I really hope she makes a kit, so I can do it with MY favorites... How about a pendent?!

Now I need to decide what I think looks best to hang them from.

Happy Friday!

Another reminder post. I love this idea! The patches are just the cherry on top. I want to do it. If I have nothing in my closet...I will search far & wide to find a sweater to do this to. Makes me curse myself for all the sweaters I've gotten rid of or cut up to make other things...Lets hope they wouldn't work for this. I don't know why adding a zipper never occurred to me? I have, in fact, cut straight up the middle of a sweater before. A turtle neck. Never wore it though. I'll bet I would have if it had a zip.
