DIY: Kitty Mary Janes

1.24.2012
Multitasking and procrastinating are two things I'm amazing at.. this idea was put on the backburner for a few weeks!

The slippers were already complete and the other night got around to finally putting a kitty face on it. It's a prototype/wip! May do different ears and a mouth. Those were also my last safety eyes. Decided it would be best to use a H hook for a snug fit. My feet seem to change sizes or one's slightly bigger than the other!





Any shoe/slipper/sock projects that you like or have done?

Cute Finds {weekly feature}

1.22.2012
Introducing one of the few new weekly series! I haven't browsed Etsy enough to discover those hidden gems and now it's my chance! :B I'll be posting a few photos of things I like along with the links. This will be open to submissions too for now. Email me if you are interested in a little feature :)

I love digital artwork especially as cameo jewelry. I'm counting down the days when we'll get our own apartment and I could start building a collection of prints/art.

Octopuses + Headband

1.21.2012



Some new octo's for Squittle! I'm also in the process of making slightly smaller versions of these:




My favorites are using Vanna's Choice, Lion Brand and Loops & Threads! Unfortunately there's not enough of that last one. If you work with yarn, can you recommendation another brand that has a good variety of colors? I'm thinking more on the lighter/pastel side.


Bow headband! *edited with pattern link*

DIY: Two Tone Dress

1.11.2012




I don't have a sewing machine so I had do this by hand.  I used a large shirt and a tank top for this project.




I'm TERRIBLE at following instructions for sewing projects and had to do this on my own.

I cut one side, divided my waist by 2 & measured across to get an idea of how much to snip off. Sew it together preferably with a sewing machine. haha 

On the search for more tutorials to inspire and possibly...maybe actually... being able to follow one correctly?! I'll like to keep inspired so if you can link me to any of your sewing projects, pleaseeeee do!
