Work, Work, Work

That's what I'm doing all weekend.  I couldn't think of a better kind of work to be doing than craft work!

This weekend I made one last small batch of button necklaces.  I bought more buttons for a piece of fabric I forgot about but then decided to use some of my other fabrics instead.  :-)

I'm also working on a hair clip for a friend.  It's going to be a grey flower alligator clip with a lime green button in the center.  I think it's going to be so pretty!

I'm trying out a new project to share on another blog.  I just thought it would be fun to try something new.  Hopefully I can figure it out.  I don't have a back up plan.  Eeks!

Don't worry.  I didn't pay $12.99 for it.  It was on sale for 50% off! YAY!!  :-)

This weekend I'm also working on custom plushies for someone and a new project I've been wanting to try for over a year.  I decided it was finally time.  I want to have it ready for my next market.  I'll post pictures when I finish.  

Are you working on anything fun this weekend?

Hi Camille. Thanks for reading my blog! When I make a plushie I just draw a picture and cut each piece out of felt or fabric. Then I stitch the pieces onto the body and sew the body together and stuff it. If it's a big plushie I hand stitch the details and machine sew the body together. If it's a mini plushie it's all hand stitched. I love the blanket stitch for plushies. I usually keep it pretty simple. If you have any questions feel free to email me. I would be happy to write a post showing pictures of the steps for you if you prefer. Just let me know. I can post it next Saturday. :)
