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

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.

Also, if you like swapping stuff, do check out It is super fun and there are swaps for everything, especially for crafty people.

Swap time

I have just finished making stuff for a swap over at Craftster. I feel like I should add more to it but at the same time, there is a lot to it.  I am getting ready to start on the Dotee swap now but I probably won’t get them started past the sketching stage right now as I’m rather tired. I have lots of ideas though. I think I have a mould I can use to make clay faces but I’m not quite sure how I would attach them. I may just use fabric ones for now.

In a swap I received some nice roving for felting so I may make a felt Dotee but we’ll see. I havn’t tried it out just yet but my fingers are itching to get pokey, lol. As usual, everything is a challange when my kitten Black Jack insists on checking out and helping me with everything I’m doing. When he’s not sleeping on this computer, that is.

Oh, and yesterday for a swap I made my first card and evelope. Like the dunce I am, I forgot to take a picture before I had it all sealed up! D’oh, I’ll have to remember next time.

ATCs again and….

Here are a couple more!

I am also going to be starting on making my first Dotees! It is for a swap over at Craftster and I’m really excited about it. I have lots of fun fabric and I have four partners so I can try a little of everything :D  I am also doing a private swap there as well for some Hayao Miyazaki (Spirited Away, Totoro etc.) stuff that is coming along well so far. I won’t be posting pics of that swap stuff until they’ve been recived though just incase someone actually comes and reads this, lol.

ATCs

Here are two recent ATCs I have made and they were for a swap. They have gone out already but I have not heard from the receiver yet if she has them. I wanted to post them here anyway because I like how they came out.

I will have more of these to post eventually since I am in another ATC swap.

I am also in a Dotee swap and I’m very excited because I’ve never made one before. I already have a few ideas but I’ll see what happens after partners are assigned.

Paper Beads-Done

Here are the paper beads that I have made so far. I’m thinking of using up the rest of my paper and make more of them since they are so easy.
