I'm on a crafty kick. Being home with the kiddos all day is giving me the opportunity to think about craft projects I've had in the works for a while but haven't gotten to. I recently agreed to make the jewelry for my bellydance troupe's new costumes, which got me back into beading. While I was playing with those beads I pulled out what I already had, and found some near-complete projects that I just finished. Here they are:
I just got this pendant. Disassembled an old necklace I'd made and never worn, and used those beads for this. I love it.
Had these beads forever. Couldn't commit to a single color scheme. Finally I decided I'd rather wear them for a while then disassemble them and start over instead of just having the beads in my bead box forever. So ta-da! New earrings.
The big project - troupe jewelry. I made this necklace as the prototype, and will show my troupemates tonight. If they like it I'll make 8 more (plus earrings, not pictured) before March.
I'm also on a bit of a sewing kick, but it's still in the design stage. I have an idea for a quilt (full size!), a jumper for Doodle, birthday banners to give away/sell(?), and skirts for me.
One question for my crafty friends: what would you do with *cough*4 yards*cough* of this?
It's polyester, I think... the printed side is smooth and slippery, and the reverse is soft, almost fuzzy, and sticks to itself. Ideas other than a giant mumu? I'm thinking a full, flirty fluffy skirt, but don't know where to start. Help!
