Boutique Hair Bows

For the last few days I have been working on some hair bows that will be available at my upcoming craft show.

I was able to get these great Grinch bottlecaps to use on one set of hairbows. I added some lime green maraboo feathers to give a hint of the Grinch's fur. I think they came out really cute and I will be a little sad if they go because I love them so much.

I also made these snowflake hairbows that would be great all winter long. The center snowflake is glittered up and shines so neat in the light. I have never used such an array of colors in a hairbow but I think it worked out great.

Anyway, I better get off here because I have so much more to do. Remember that the craft show is December 5th and we will be giving away a door prize so stop by. I hope everyone is having a nice weekend.

This is a handmade snowman ornie I have been working on for my upcoming craft show. He is made with stained fleece fabric, gingham scarf, and twig arms. He is completely hand stitched by me using my own pattern.

I hope everyone has a good week!

Mitten Ornies

Today I made some handmade mitten ornies. They are made with stained star fabric, terry cloth, jute, and a handmade tag.

This is just one of the many items that will be available at the craft show I am participating in on December 5th at the Bill Heddles Rec Center. I hope to see you there.

Christmas Tree Ornies

Today I decided to try my hand at making some Christmas inspired ornies for my upcoming craft show. Ornies are something that you hang as an ornament or use in a bowl as a filler. I have made some hearts and chickies before but this was my first try at making a tree.

I started my project with some stained gingham green fabric, cinnamon sticks, stained cheese cloth, and some rusted hardware. I used my own pattern. The fabric used to make the tree is stained with my own recipe of coffee, vanilla, and cinnamon. I took some cinnamon sticks my mom had and cut them in half and used them as the tree trunk. I made some stamped tags and added some holly and a rusted bell and heart.

I think they came out really cute. They will be available at my craft show at the first of December.

I hope everyone is having a great afternoon.
