Anyways, the first thing I wanted to share was this little skirt I made for my friend. It was supposed to be a test run for the pattern and because I "labeled" it that way I was easy on myself and I could experiment a lot. I got the graphics I printed and ironed on the fabric from the awsome site of The Graphics Fairy. She has tons of beautiful images to download there and lots and lots of tutorials or DIY projects that she shares from others as well. I also drew a bit on the skirt and hemmed it with self adhesive iron on tape. And I must say I was rather pleased with the result :)
Then I sewed up a little bunny for a friend's baby. I took the pattern from Tilda's book Sew Pretty Homestyle and changed it from cat to bunny. I had these little baby blankets that were perfect for this and I liked how the bunny came out too.
As for the drawing goes... well... that's always so tricky for me. If I have to draw it will take me ages to go and do it. Really. I can MAKE stuff but drawing... I find this really interesting but I will force myself to continue doing it. Because practice is all I need and after the appropriate investment of time and efforts my drawing will be so much easier to go to. I know that. So, what do I have to show? I participated in an ATC card swap last month and the theme was "Keep Calm and.." - we had to come up with our own sayings. It was a very interesting thing to make because these cards are oh-so tiny and small that it's quite difficult to make them. But oh-so more rewarding when you're done. Here are my two cards:
I hope the girl I sent them to will receive them because I think the number that was missing from her address might be crucial :/ I already received her cards and they were FABULOUS! So soooooo great that they made me feel so bad about the ones I made. And the funny thing was, she made me a "Keep Calm and Dream On" one too :) What are the odds for this eh?
