Re Styled Skirt

There is this excellent thrift store in the Mission that sells vintage scrap fabric by the pound. $5 for a pound! I decided to turn some of that fabric into skirts, and here is one of them

I started by using an old elastic waistband from some old shorts (read: boxers)

Chevy loves the skirt too. Little dancing queen.
 I have made 4 skirts in the last week, and they are fast and fun to sew, and I've spent a total of $7 on all the fabric. Not bad huh?

What do you think? Would you like to see more of these types of posts?

Home pictures

I feel like we didn't utilize our walls in our last home because we knew we weren't going to stay thee long term but this new place is bomb so up on the walls do our things go!

1. wall shelves above my craft/work station 2. vintage map and ikea fabric canvasses (watching the news) 3. wall art above our seating area. (you can still see that guy in the mirror!)

Wedding Wreath number 2!

Updated wedding wreath.
This time it's a more circular circle and the yarn is a little tidier.
A vast improvement if I do say so myself!!
Do you recognize those little hearts? :)

Now only like 20 more to go. WooHoo!!!

Wedding Hearts

Another little project I'm working on for the wedding.
I'm crocheting tiny hearts in our wedding colors to throw on the reception tables.
They are super fast to whip up, but I have to make A LOT of them.
I figure if I make a few everyday I'll have enough in time for THE BIG DAY. 

What do you think? How many do you think I will need?

Wedding Wreath

Here's a prototype of one of our wedding decorations.
Clearly it's uneven and not really perfect like I wanted, but I was just practicing ok- don't judge!

I'm thinking of hanging these from each pew- what do you think?

Here is a little peek at my new workstation in the new place!
Ok its not really new but it is in a new spot and having a place for everything makes it feel new, our at least useful.
Finally get to utilize the leaf on the right side of the desk.

Felted mat!

Haven't done any knitting in a long time, and now that we have a washer and dryer I could finally felt a project I've had for awhile!
Its my first time felting believe it or not and it was super fun watching the circles shrink.
