I joined in again this month with Anna of Frosted Petunia’s and her Artful Bag Challenge. This month’s challenge was to make an ATC using the “bag” theme. My partner is Wendy of Bliss Angels, we’ve swapped before and I’m a regular in her Blissful ATC swap. She’s a great gal and swapper! Just look at how she spoiled me! Wendy is a faerie extraordinaire, she comes up with the cutest faeries time and time again, I love it! I should’ve taken a closeup of the purse this faerie is holding! It’s made from paper! So delicate and delightful :) And don’t those flowers look 3 dimensional?
She didn’t stop with the ATC… oh no! I got a gorgeous little faerie shoe! Preciously embellished funky slipper, just as I picture a faerie shoe to look like. Wendy this is so amazing, thank you!
I’m mailing my ATC to her today, so I won’t post pictures just yet :)
Meanwhile, I’ve been working on some cute things for 7 year olds. My daughter and her BFF get together every year to have a “special day” together. We do girly things and basically just let them spend the ENTIRE day together. I always make or buy them matching outfits and they get pictures taken together. This year I made twirl skirts and matching peace sign shirts. They are both into peace signs right now, the loved the outfits!
Silly me, I should’ve taken this picture at the beginning of the day, when their hair was still fresh for pictures :) Oh well, they’re still adorable models!
I also made this coordinating backpack for another friend. I’ve been making these drawstring backpacks as re-usable gift bags. I make one for each birthday party she’s invited to and then put a little gifty inside. Then they can use the backpacks for carrying around necessities, ballet slippers, swim gear, DS’s etc… My kids use theirs daily, I hope the other kids find them useful too.
They are pretty easy to make, I can make one in 30 mins or less and it doesn’t take much fabric, this one was made with the scraps from the girls outfits.
So that’s pretty much what I’ve been up to this week, countdown until school starts! T-4 days…yay!
