It's time once again for Gifted Gorgeousness, a blog hop organised by Jo where once a month we show off our gift-related crafts. This month mine is a bit of a skill swap.
Here is Naomi wearing the silk chiffon kimono I made for her (the original plan was that I would teach her how to make it herself, but the fabric was really slippery and awkward so I ended up just making it)
And here is the wood-burned door hanger (front and back) which she made for me.
She made some other door hangers and boxes as well and will be listing them in her folksy shop as soon as I get around to photographing them for her.
Naomi and I went to a workshop yesterday on making jewellery from sea-found objects. It was great fun. Here are a few of the pretties I made. At last a use for the sea-glass mountain in the conservatory!
Also, just for fun, a cuddly skull I made today. I think we should probably call him Sir Skull, because he looks rather aristocratic
Welcome to the March edition of Gifted Gorgeousness, the monthly SAL run by Jo of Serendipitous Stitching, where we show off our gifted related crafting. This month I'm sharing this dress I made for Eloise.
The pattern is Butterick B6167, and I've never had to do so much re-drafting on a pattern in my life! For a full review of the pattern see here
I used a remnant of a border print fabric which called for some creative cutting and not a little fluent cursing, but I jiggled it out in the end.
Extra gifted gorgeousness brownie points because I used the dressmaking pins Barb gave me, and I sent some of the fabric offcuts (and believe me after the trouble I had getting it out of my too short fabric cut there weren't many) to Jo for backing her Hallowe'en ornaments.
