My Creative Space... or welcome to WIP world
Everything is just slightly chaotic in my creative space this week....
I seem to have lots of projects on the go, all in a similar state of unfinishedness.
The dress, arms, and legs above are for a softie that I'm making for mum for mothers day, on behalf of my little sister. When we visited last week, Sel was teasing that there weren't enough happy snaps of herself dotted around mums new cottage. We were trying to hatch a plan of making some sort of cardboard cutout when Liesl came up with lightbulb moment suggestion of making a softie.
I bought myself some ink-jet printable fabric, and I'm going to print a photo of Sels face to make the head of the softie. I'm hoping that mum thinks it's as hilarious as we do!
I'm also still working on a little DS pouch that I started last weekend. A friends little boy is having a birthday party on Saturday and his main present from his parents is going to be a DS Lite.
I've added some heavy wadding to the inside in case of accidents...
.....and a tab with a D-ring, to attach a little lanyard that I whipped up in the same cute cogs fabric.
I just need to make the inside of the pouch (if I can remember the original dimensions as I didn't write it down as I was working...aaaagghhhhh).
Here's hoping that I get them finished today!
As always, make sure to visit the mighty linky list over at Kirsty's place
