What's everyone been crafting lately? :D

I had to disappear for a little while, but I'm finally back! My life had been incredibly hectic and I barely had time to think, much less get into any crafting project. Thankfully, everything has settled down and I'm excited to start putting more into this club. For the past few weeks I've been doing nothing but crafty things! Here's some of what I've accomplished recently.

Here's another take on the Cardboard Upcycle Jewelry Organizer tutorial I posted. This one utilizes hooks instead of push pins for a classier look. I was thinking about screwing the hooks into the bottom of a small shelf, but I didn't have the material to make one, and had a bunch of cardboard.



Then there's this pretty dress! This was coming from the girl who had only made a handful of simple square things and could barely sew a straight line. Somehow I was convinced I could do complicated things and ended up with this dress! I'm still impressed by how well it came out. I only used a pattern for the bodice and added the midriff band, altered the straps and collar, and made a full circle skirt!







Does anyone else have photos they'd like to share?

Very cute dress! I wish I could make clothing! Sadly, I have not had the time to craft anything lately.

My crafts are all for a 2 1/2 year old so nothing worth posting here about. We will probably be dying Easter eggs soon.

I also love that dress. You can make one for me anytime! Lol.

I've been working on a quilt made out of old shirts that I don't wear anymore and fabric samples that I had laying around. I go in bursts, but I'm going to try and get more done soon. I've got the face about half pinned together so far.

Upload them to a site like Photobucket. Copy the image URL, and it tells you how to add them here at the little links and formatting thing when you make a post.

I'd love to see!

I'm making a pair of barefoot sandals (like anklet that goes down and around your second toe) for my wedding on the beach! I used some photos on Etsy for inspiration and just bought some beads and stretchy cord.

@Dawn- Kudos on the wicked awesome circle-skirt dress! I think it's totally retro-sexy. Do you swing dance in it?

Love the dress.

Most recent was a retro-inspired apron. Next I believe will be something called "Summer slippers." They're like cloth flip-flops for in the house. If you google it, you'll see what I mean.

Fantastic job on the dress!

My next project is to put together my son's Doctor Who costume for Halloween. He's going to be the 10th Doctor.

Summer slippers for me and hubs done. Also a pirate costume for my son for pirate day at his school. Next up: cute undies for me from spare cotton knit that I have and the kids' Halloween costumes.

The best part is, my 4 year old requested this all on his own with no prompting! I'm so excited!
