I actually have a little bit of craftiness to show after a long, productive weekend. I finally finished my pending wholesale order that took way too long to finish.
Then I finished my sister-in-law's birthday present. I made her a Buttercup Purse, like the one I made myself a couple of months ago. I enlarged the Buttercup Purse pattern and added a recessed zipper. The tutorial I found online was very confusing, but I somehow figured it out. Now I want to create a clearer tutorial on how to do this. Why is it one thing gets crossed off the list and something else is just added in its place?
Here's a close-up of the flower. I made it a pin so it is detachable.
See I told you I put in a recessed zipper.
There's a little pocket inside too.
I also labeled everything in my craft center. So now there are no excuses for misplaced items. I used chalkboard contact paper and my trusty die cutting machine. The contact paper is really cool. I have had it for awhile and was excited to finally use it.
Since I was obviously all about getting things done this weekend and Harper asks me at least once a day when I am going to finish her cape, I finished the capes that have been cut out for weeks now.
Miller requested a Batman cape.
I really planned on getting shots of the kids modeling their new capes, but instead we spent the evening in the ER.
Yes, that red stuff you can barely see on the sides is my husband's flesh.
My husband has been working on a Fairy House for Harper for a long time now. This is his second trip to the ER. It has turned out to be a very painful and expensive project.
I hope everyone had a safe Memorial Day Weekend.
Happy Crafty Tuesday!!
