I made this needle felted doll for my daughter's 7th birthday. I loosely based it on a fairy pattern from Spin-off magazine. Her name is Seraphina, and her body is needlefelted, along with her "clothes", and she has a tulle skirt, maribou hair and a rhinestone necklace! She was fun to make and my daughter loves her! (Which is all that matters!)
I made these dresses for my daughter using old too-small t-shirts and sewing them to peasant skirts. I could have made the placement more empire-waisted, but they are still cute, and she'll get a ton of wear outta them!
In searching Pinterest (my new favorite website), I came across this idea of making glitter shoes that don't flake. I love this technique!! Mix your glitter into a small amount of Mod Podge, the paint on 5-6 layers to fill in all spots with glitter! Now I also have leftovers in case they get scuffed! These were $1 sneakers turned glam!!
As you can see I'm busy with lots of different projects at the same time- now I've finished 3 woven T-Shirt rugs for my son's room. This was taken from Family Fun's pattern woven on a hula hoop. Fun and fast! I took my husband's old tshirts, dyed them all briefly for the colors to blend, cut into strips and woven together on the round hoop... This is a great technique, and the cats approve!
