Update

I finished scarf number three on Sunday but am just now posting. This one came out really really long because I went until I finished the skein. Since I know there are people who like long scarves, I’m not worried about someone not liking it.

Also, this is another ATC I did for the 7 Deadly Sins swap over at Swap-Bot. I honestly had a hard time doing this one as I just could not think of anything. After reading and re-reading the description of the sin (Sloth), it says that the goat and the color light blue are associated with it. This is what I came up with. It is also my first hand drawn ATC. I hope my partner likes it.
Sloth ATC

ATC, bead WIP, and….a bunny!

Here is another ATC for the 7 Deadly Sins Swap, this one is for Wrath/Anger. A bit simple but I like it. You can’t read the words in the pic, but they are from the description/definition of the sin.

And this is a beaded bookmark in progress on my bead loom. After this I’m thinking I’ll try a more complex pattern. This one I’m just doing as I go and it will be wavy.

And for something not crafty; Last monday this cute little bunny showed up in our yard. We’ve seen it every¬† night since and it was out hopping around this morning too. We think it might be living under our shed. The dog keeps going nuts because she wants to go out and catch it XD

Making little matchboxes

Over at Swap-Bot I am in the Hooked on Dotees group and a new group swap will be starting called Matchbox Dotee swap. I’ve never made a matchbox before, or done anything with one, so using the tutorial that is linked in the swap description, I made two matchboxes just to see their size. Looks like I’ll be making itty bitty dotees to go in them! The boxes are 1.5″ wide by 2″ long (I think that’s what it was, they are really small).

I have not done the inside of one box yet. I just thought up an idea for these but I won’t say yet in case I do it for the swap. I’m going to try making bigger ones later I think.

Crafty update

I am finally posting some things I’ve been working on. I will post swap stuff later but I need to wait for my partners to receive for so they don’t get spoiled!

First up is a little felt man; the first item I have needle felted! I do not have any white, so for now he has no eyes, but I still think he is cute.

Next is a bracelet I made on my bead loom that I’ve had for years. These are even some beads that originally came with it.¬† I have some new things in mind, but for now I have been sorting the beads since they are all mixed together. I’m not even halfway done yet D:

And lastly, not counting swap stuff, is my very first bag! I did not use a pattern but made my own, another first, and I did my first fabric covered button too! I’m really happy with how this bag turned out. It’s simple but it’s just the right size. I even upcycled the strap from my old bag. The fabric I got from the July B-Day card swap over on Swap-Bot. Cute huh?

It has two pockets.

My mom wants me to make her a bag now too, hehehe. Next time I’ll finish the insides better so you don’t see the seams so much. I was just in a hurry to get this done before I lost my motivation since I get distracted so easily. It took me around four hours just to do this! My machine kept eating thread on me so I had to keep rethreading and ripping out a few times. But it was worth it.
