Since I am waiting on the zipper for the Hello Kitty hoodie, I decided to take a break from sewing today and just play with some of the things I purchased recently.
I found this tiny little tree, I removed the large wooden base and created a new one from polymer clay. I plan to decorate it with tiny beads and tiny wrapped gifts underneath. For the other ones I plan to make at least one tiny gingerbread house, and maybe a couple of even tinier glitter houses. I promise to share the finished pieces once I get them done!
this one. I think once I get a small hearth under it and a nice mantel on top it will be the perfect height. I plan to use egg cartons to create fake fieldstone... at least I think fieldstone is the right term. I want my fireplace to look something like this one HERE.
I hope to get this done sometime within the next week, as I really want to set up a living room scene for the girls that I can decorate for Christmas!!!
(Oh btw, that is a new top Lena is wearing too. I just used my regular t-shirt pattern, made it a little longer and cheated a bit on the neckline, but sewing a neat bit of trim over the edge rather than turning it under.)
My last bit of fun, is this neat gif I made using 2 pictures I took of an owl transfer I did on a new shirt for Lena. I didn't realize that the image was Glow in the Dark, until I was getting ready for bed! I just had to snap a picture!
So let's see, tomorrow I am going to sew up the shoulder bag that goes with the Hello Kitty outfit, then sew up the 4 t-shirts I have laid out and ready, sew the snaps on the red Christmas PJ set I made a few weeks ago (that I am waiting on buttons for) and also frost the 1:4 scale chocolate cupcakes I made today. I need to decide on some kind of Christmas-y decoration for them.
Then if I get all of those things done, I'll get started on the girls fireplace!
Hope you all have a great Saturday!
