After I got my paintbox the other day - see previous post wip paintinginprogress - I decided that I needed to do a bit of sewing too. I’d seen a relaxing weighted eyemask I liked on amazon but I thought I can make that in a few minutes, so I did with my own organiclavendar straight from my garden. I used some fatquarters from stock I had already and made a smaller one along full-size one. These can be put in the freezer (in a sealed bag) and then used cold if necessary which is great for headaches. All in in a successful 20 minute craftsession 👍🏻and if you’d like to see how I made them leave a comment and I’ll do a blog tutorial 😊 sewing crafting makingstuff fabric easycrafts sewingforbeginners easycraftproject funwithfabric sewingdesign craftingwithcats TheBTeam BBHQ fabricsquares prettyfabric sewingproject sewsewsew

Day 26: self care . I love to make myself clothes or jewelry but don't often prioritise it. So seeing today's prompt I printed myself this top. I love triangles. The top itself was a sweater that my daughter judged too small a couple of days ago but as it seems, having cut off the sleeves, it fits the mother just fine 🙃🤣. If you're looking for a thin cotton top for spring with a cool pattern I have one on my website! And if you like this pattern please shout as I haven't yet put it on there. Link in bio.

Are you feeling lucky? Sooo, a while ago when I had the welder out I decided to make some dice, not sure why I did so, but I did. Formed/shaped by hand using skills I have not drawn on for many years these were time consuming yet strangely satisfying to make. makingstuff handmade

I know—for the March Meet the Maker prompt, hands at work, I was supposed to create an stunning but understated flatlay with my elegantly pastel manicured hands creating some kind of marvelous botanical watercolor that would then be put on expensive bedsheets or wedding invitations. I’m not that kind of gal. I mean, maybe I am on some days. Good stuff, pattern design. I’m just moreso the person who willfully takes writing prompts in an oddly literal direction as some sort of retroactive retribution against uninspiring journal prompts in past English classes. If I’m honest, I loved most of my English teachers. So it’s not even about that. I really needed practice drawing hands. I mean. Look at these. I need to somehow get fingers to not look like sausages. It’s an endeavor, this hand drawing thing. Anybody have an easy way to get the proportions right and reduce finger-sausageness? Enjoy the hands. Or don’t. You get to make your own choices in life; this is one of them. Love, Alex P.S. If you’ve ever wanted to turn your line drawings into vectors—Adobe Capture is truly amazing and ridiculously easy to use. It’s free on the iPhone app store and is seriously one of my favorite art tools in the world. Pro-tip: take a well lit photo of the artwork first rather than trying to take the photo within the app. For whatever reason, I’ve gotten cleaner results from pre-taken photos, even if they’re still taken from the phone camera. handsatwork marchmeetthemaker   makingstuff vectorlettering adobecapture learningtodraw drawinghands sketchings thumbnailsketch quicksketches patterndesigners surfacepatterndesign handdoodle tooliteral outlinedrawing

While I wait for the missing fabrics and ribbons for the Edwardian chemise and the stays, I started a new little project to have me occupied. So I bought some velvet at the local stoffstil , blew some dust off my americanduchess book "guide to 18th century dressmaking" and decided to make some pearl embroidered 1790s reticule bag 😄👛 • • • americanduchess 1790 reticule bag sewing seamstress 18thcentury dressmaking pursesewing chemise stays frogreticule americanduchessbook americanduchessguideto18thcenturydressmaking norwegianseamstress costumery makingstuff

Oops, loose in the hardware store. After giving away all my power tools recently after accepting this dodgy body and hands of mine weren't going to recover, I have to find new lighter easier tools. Who know there was so many other things to play with. I reckon hardware stores and book stores have that something in common, where you want to look, smell and touch stuff or is that just a weird neurodiverse thing hardwarestore tools makingstuff geelong faggsmitre10 toollust

These are 18 inch guitars I made for Clay Achee’s puppet band project, ziggyandthejunkyardband . Each one is hand made to scale out of thin plywood, styrofoam, bondo, and found objects.

When I made my magic carpet necklace, I cut the pieces in a few different colours as I was undecided on the glitter, so I had enough pieces left to make a wee carpet brooch! 😁 I like that if you turn it on its side, it looks like a dejected carpet. 😮 I won't be making any for sale though as I want to make a lot less Disney stuff going forward. 😊 plasticjewellery acrylicjewellery brooches aladdin flyingcarpet makingstuff handmade lasercutacrylic lasercutjewellery magiccarpet

Today I made my 250th sale! I’m not sharing to toot my own horn, but to motivate new sellers out there. I’ve nearly matched my 2018 total sales in the last three months, and I am beyond grateful. 🖤 I know I still have a lot of goals to reach, but to anybody just getting started, you’ve got this! We’ve got this! Let’s reach our goals together 💪

File folders of scraps organized by color and plenty of strips of paperboard stand on a shelf near my craft supplies, ready to be used for cards like this. Cut up shopping bags, watercolor pieces I’m sick of looking at, Cheez-it boxes, many of them get a second life as embellishments. I feel an oddly strong responsibility to care for things I acquire that seems to extend to packaging. I want things to go to good use, to feel like they got to live fulfilling and meaningful lives. As one of my favorite bloggers put it; it’s not that our society is too materialistic, it’s that in many ways, we’re not materialistic enough. (https:www.raptitude.com/2017/01/not-materialistic-enough/) There’s something marvelous about caring for things. Just listen to mariekondo talk about how your socks should be rolled so they can rest, not stretch-tucked, when stored. I was always a stretch-tucker, but gave the roll-fold a try and whaddaya know, my socks do seem happier. Or go read patrickrothfuss’s book The Slow Regard of Silent Things. It’s a deeply lovely book—poetic, somewhat low on plot, but in a good way—full of quiet beauty and attentiveness. The title is descriptive, it’s about a wispy character named Auri who spends her days regarding things she encounters with reverence and love. marchmeetthemaker reducingwaste cardboardart mykonmari tidyingupwithmariekondo patrickrothfuss cheezit reusereducerecycle creativereuse cardmakingideas makingstuff creative_reuse craftideas cheapart raptitude
