well it has been way too long since i have had a chance to craft! i swear i was going through massive withdrawals! but the last month of my life has been more than overwhelming
good thing is i aced my summer biology course (yay)
so i am trying to get back to a normal crafting schedule. yesterday i washed a load of new fabric and i cant wait to put it all to use.
i have finally set aside my terrible fear of commercial patterns!
i used simplicity 2494 to make my tia a hat since she is losing her hair to chemo
she loved it! i used old fabric for my first try because i had no faith in myself. but it came out great! all that i need to do it felt a flower for the embellishment but my tia wanted to start wearing it already so that can wait
so now i have gained some confidence in commercial patterns and can start advancing to more difficult things. this open up so much for me!
and lastly on a side note, here is some pics of the purse that i made for my friend 2 months ago (i never did get to post the pics until now, i apologize)
anyhow, it feels good to be back! thanks for sticking with me through the slow times
