Poodle skirts

For our Valentine’s Day 50s Sock Hop at work, I made these poodle skirts and scarves for me and Lauren to wear.

I followed several tutorials to make these, some more confusing than others: http://sewlikemymom.com/cosmetic-bag-tutorial/ and http://www.skiptomylou.org/2010/07/25/the-boxy-cosmetic-bag-tutorial/ mostly. I didn’t use the fusible vinyl, but I did add buttoned pockets to the inside of the bags.

Folding each strip in half lengthwise, braid (using 3 strips) the plarn into one reeeaaaaaaally long braid. You can always add more to it later, you don’t have to do … Continue reading

Mod-Podged Photo Shadow Box for Dad

This was for my Dad for Christmas. I bought a 5×7 wooden shadow box from Hobby Lobby. I printed off a ton of pictures of family members’ faces in black and white on normal printer paper. I cut all the pictures to fit. The pictures go all the way around the inside and outside edges … Continue reading
