Since I do have “crafting” in my blog title, I thought had better update everyone on my latest pretties. Some of these things I have made over a month or more....I get rather manic in my creative spurts when under a lot of pressure. Other than my increased chocolate consumption during heightened periods of sleep deprivation and stress, I do get rather crazed with creating.
First, an aside.....you will notice a few things being staged on my yellow bed.....just ignore the mismatched pillows, the fact that the bed was not even really made, it was sort of a fake you out kind of bedmaking, where pulling the comforter over the rumpled sheets counts, doesn’t it?
Starting with my first pretty.....she is an apron, made for a young bride to be. I was unable to attend the shower, since it coincided with Lily’s worst few post op weeks.....but the apron was the hit of the bridal shower, from what I hear...
Next pretty--a purse made from repurposed denim. In other words, I made this with the pant leg of G’s jeans that had been well loved.
Next, the third pretty isn’t sure if she likes being a purse after serving so well as a jean pant leg for Pete’s sake!
Speaking of fabric collages, I got kind of caught up in the moment and started patchworking with a purpose. By the end of this little ditty, I couldn’t quite conjure up that purpose..anymore. My ever brilliant 15 year old thought this might make a good oven mitt! Hummm, if only I had lined it with that fire proof batting!!!
So what do you all think? Stay tuned, I have something very interesting I am working on to share soon. It involves things like my favorite saint, fabric, maybe even some buttons and rick rack....be still my heart!
Hey, go light some sparklers for the 4th of July, but PLEASE, don’t poke your eye out and have that bucket of water waiting, ya’ hear??
Happy Independence Day Crafting!!
