I’m finally working on a dedicated craftspaceMay 31, 2007 at 6:01 pm | Posted in Sewing/Crafts, WIP | 8 Comments
for myself. I’m about halfway done, and it’s already worth it. Here are a couple of sneak peeks.
I bought some expandable bamboo trellis for a song at Hobby Lobby. When I expanded it fully at home, I found that it was 15 feet long. Oops! Where’s that hacksaw?
I decorated 2 dozen clothespins so I can use the trellis as an inspiration wall. I love Sally’s idea to put the fabric on buttons and then attach them to the pins, but I was so impatient to be done, I decided to eliminate the middleman and decoupaged the fabric directly onto the pins.
I also made a few swatch portraits using the instructions over at the Purl Bee blog. The watermelon-lovin’ child (oh, who DOESN’T love watermelon THAT MUCH?) is from a dish towel by folk artist Nancy Thompson.
