So I’m never saying when I’ll be back again. For some reason that makes me never come back for, like, months.
But hey cool fact! Did you know the line separating “Wow I can’t believe how easy it is to make cute jewelry”
and “Guys I think I have a problem”
is actually really, really thin? (these were almost all made within the span of a couple weeks. If I didn’t keep running out of supplies, that would have been a couple days.)
My next post will be about a few easy ways to make really cute or interesting jewelry for those who either don’t know how, or those who could use some ideas!
Princess Penelope Primrose!
My favorite project out of all of them. The pattern could use some complete re-vamping, but once that’s solid I might post it online.
I’ve wanted my own elephant plush for
years a while, and thought this was perfect. It’s a bandanna-phant!
Made these last night in a fit of imsomnia. I actually was putting them off for a while, but after they came out so well and I got such comments today (I only wore one, both looks kind of like ears or something and I think that’s a bit weird for church) I’m glad I finally finished them.
They’re fake, of course, but I worked with some fake strawberries to make them look a little more real, and they came out really well. I love them, they’re so cute! Next, a banana, some kiwi slices, maybe a pinapple…
And somehow I made this hair-tie. It’s a charm sewed to a hair elastic. I tried to make the red thing look like a strawberry, but it ended up looking like a radish, which just means I need more practice. At least it’s a cute functional item, so yeah. Later!
Ugh, finally I post this! The final versions of the clips that I showed you guys the charms for. I glued them to the clips that way so that either way wouldn’t end up with an upside-down charm. It made sense in my head, I guess.
I’ll be selling these at Mizumi-con, and I have a bunch of clips left over so I can make more that look like cookies or something I dunno.
Mizumi-con is coming at us faster that I thought possible, in almost two months! With that in mind and a fire lit under me I finally shrunk and sealed the charms for the hairclips. I bought ridiculously small hairclips to start with, so I made these extra small and cute. My favorite part is the dangling charms, like the fox in the second picture. I punched holes in them so that I could slip a jump ring through, and now the tails dangle. I made fox, cat, and red panda charms like these. However, now I’m worried they all may be too small to cover the clips on their own, so I’m going to try and find some thin ribbon to supplement them. I’ll post pics when I’m done, but I really wanted to show the charms!
(also ignore the two big things at the top those are for another project I’ll reveal later)
When I saw the last image in this set pop up on Tumblr a while ago I believe my initial response was awe of the cuteness of the hairclip. I also wanted to make my own version, and finally I did, albeit a little different and with my own personal touch. (like the elephant at the end of the chain; I may change it later but for now it’s the best thing I could find) I like the accidental technique here, it looks kind of like a cookie! I may use it for something at Mizumi-con, and I’ll definitely use this technique later for something appropriately cute.
(by the way, does anyone know where this came from? I’d love to be able to give credit, but I couldn’t find a source)(nevermind it was at the bottom of the photo oops)
So my sisters are planning to go to this local convention in a couple of months. My older sister, being an indomitable entrepreneur, has decided we should all make stuff to sell at a table. Which means I’m going to be making rings and clips and things. Don’t worry, I’ll post pics on Tumblr! See you soon!
