I am in love with tulle. I'm not sure I'll ever grow out of it. I love its ethereal nature and the feeling of romance it gives. This is a tulle crown I made to fill an Etsy order. I actually had an Etsy order! This is big news for me. For all the success of my blog, and I so am grateful for my wonderful and supportive followers, I do not have a successful Etsy shop. Now, I must admit, that I don't post everything I make and I don't market it very well. It is an area I do not focus on-too busy making, I suppose. What do they say, an untended garden produces no blooms, or something like that. The other piece is that I hate the thought of focusing on any one type of item that I will make over and over. I like all kinds of crafts and things to make. Don't make me choose one, I say. Still, I was thrilled to get the orders, and of course, I loved making the crowns, too.
here they are in the shop. If you want to make them (perhaps this is why my Etsy shop fails :)), you can learn how in my costume class at Craftsy.com.
Elsewhere, I found this combo had landed on my studio desk while cleaning up. See how it just begs for me to make something of them. Well, don't I just adore Lizzy House fabric. hmmm - what and when. That is the question!
I made this sweet little, lizzy house, out-foxed, cosmetic bag the other night with a crafty friend. Then, the dog ate the pattern!! Seriously! I love this bag. What fun. This disappearing pattern just means I'll have to recreate it for you at some point. I want to make a set of five with each bag sized to fit in the one before like an ever-diminishing set of matryoshka dolls. Do have any idea how long my list is!?
Boys' bracelet tutorial and finger knitting project no. 2 coming right up!
