and another toadstool project

Thursday, October 28th, 2010

with all the sewing that goes on around here, i end up with alot of empty plastic cone spools. i think there must be something i can make with them so i can’t throw them away. it seemed pretty obvious that they would make great toadstool stems…so with some styrofoam balls, a glue gun and some rug […]

crocheted cross stitch

Thursday, September 23rd, 2010

one of the projects from that stack of 70’s craft books i picked up at the thrift store this summer is traditional cross stitch patterns interpreted in crochet. i just finished this… i really like this idea. it’s pretty big, 14″x17″. the stitch is a little cluster that make neat little squares, it would really […]

vintage screen printed sweaters

Monday, June 21st, 2010

i’ve always loved these vintage screen printed sweaters they used to be all over the thrift stores back when i was in high school, and when i first learned how to screen print i would marvel over how they were screen printed in one piece and then sewn up the sides and underarm. i still find them […]

tees, part 2

Thursday, May 20th, 2010

i finally decided on a new tee style… it’s a cotton/rayon/poly blend heathered tee. i’ve been wearing around the color combos that didn’t make it onto my website and i have to say they’re super soft and comfy, form-fitting, a little slinky even,  but not tight. the neckline is a little lower and loser than […]
