Summer Crafting Fun!
First off...isn't this the cutest tin ever?
As the weather gets warmer...I've been feeling even craftier than usual. I have a few fun miscellaneous projects that I keep forgetting to post...so I thought I would do a quickie post and let you see a few things I've made lately.
A Pillow for Amber.
Old vintage cottage embroidered doily...too small for a runner.
Closer look at stitching...I found this at a thrift shop years ago. I've always loved cottages.
The crochet edging was so pretty, I just stitched it onto the chintz floral fabric.
I made a simple overlapping opening to insert a pillow form.
An Alice Pillow for Sascha.
Sascha collects Alice in Wonderland dolls and memorabilia
A closer look at "Alice."
I used eyelet for the ruffle like on Alice's pinafores.
The backing is pink with white rabbits...same envelope closure as Amber's
Patriotic Candy Boxes....
Paper Mache and Modge Podged Images.
My sister asked me if I would make something for a fund raiser auction to help an Associate at the Walmart where she works. I love making candy boxes and filling them with treats...so I made large one for the auction and a smaller one for myself...why not?
A closer look at the lid graphics. I found a lot of fun patriotic images online.
The Graphics Fairy is a fun place to get free vintage images.
All wrapped up and ready to go. I hope someone likes it enough to bid on it.
Have a lovely evening, dear friends,
