I really like crafting and baking, but I can only bake so much before my pants start miraculously shrinking. So I decided to focus my efforts on less edible creations. Here are some pictures of things I've made. I'm pretty proud of them. It's very satisfying to make something that you actually use/give to someone else.
I've sewed a little before now but never extensively. My mom is awesome at sewing and she gave me her old sewing machine when we moved to Iowa. It's awesome and I love it! My first project was the ruffley scarf above.
This was completely experimental. I didn't have a pattern but I wanted to try and make a baby romper. I was shocked that it came out the way it did. This one is going to be a gift for a friend that will remain unnamed.
I've been wanting to try and make some homemade pillow covers. I found this white sweater at Goodwill for $3. I was perfect for a knitted pillow case.
I have a weird obsession with wreaths. I secretly want one for each month. This wreath is made from old book pages that are rolled into flowers. Perfect for September I think.
That's what I've been doing all day. It's fun having time to do things that you've been wanting to do for months. It's too bad I can't get paid hourly for making crafts. If that were the case Michael and I would be rich.
