Combining a Rolled Flower and a Scalloped Flower

I used my previous tutorials on Rolled Fabric Flowers and Button Fabric Flowers and COMBINED them to make little guy. To keep the fabric from unraveling/frizzing, I used some sparkly fabric paint on the edges.

I'm traveling right now,so I didn't have access to super cute fabric, so I cut off off a piece of extra fabric off an old jacket.

That's pretty sad when you go cutting off pieces of your clothing to craft.

Sad, sad, sad...but in a good way. ;-)

Etsy Features a Pair of My Hand Painted Jeans in a Denim Treasury - Yay!

Interestingly....I got a pair of jeans featured in a Treasury on Etsy.

I guess that means there IS A FOLLOWING for upcyled, artsy denim. So....does this mean I'm not banging my head against a non-existing demographic wall??? ;-)

Good, ole-fashioned tie-dye - an easier, safer way - not using bleach

Grace keeps asking me to tie-dye a long, flowing skirt for her.

I didn't want to use bleach since I'm super sensitive to the I found this easy tutorial on Disney's family fun crafts site. Cha-cha-check it!!! It's easy and not as messy as other tie-dye tutorials out there!

Mainstream gets Crafty? Why, yes!

Once I bought a skirt online in the Speigel store and ever since, I've been getting their email promotions. I haven't taken my name off the list even thought I never look at their emails. For some reason, I looked at it today and I actually liked a necklace they are selling.

What was strange about it was that it kinda COOL in a CRAFTY sort of way. Mainstream is getting crafty(er?).

Well, we all have known that, but hey, any of us crafters could put something like this together without too much effort. Right????!!!! ;-) If anything, it's cute and can be sort-of replicated by our talented little hands!!!

Fabric Flower Necklace - really? A necklace?

I've been posting tutorials on fabric flowers (there's a million types out there!) over the past few months on my blog.

I FINALLY found somebody using their fabric flowers in JEWELRY. Cool, huh? Here's a picture of a necklace that from the Jan/Feb issue of "Cloth, Paper, Scissors" magazine:

Let me know if any of you try this making jewelry out of rolled fabric flowers! I'd LOVE to see how they turn out! I'll post some fabric flower barrettes I've made later this week and I'll try to create a necklace this weekend. WHAT WILL YOU CREATE THIS WEEK? ;-)
