So last weekend I listed a few projects that I was starting, namely an Easter Rag Garland, Toddler Toolbelt and Crepe Paper Rose Balls. So did I get everything done? Ha! Did I start some other random projects as inspiration struck? Maybe :) Did I buy waaaay too much stuff at JoAnn's? Oh heck yeah. So, what did I get to? Here's my roundup:
I finished the toolbelt for my little tool guy and I think it turned out awesome. I have lots of fabric left over, so I'm thinking of making a matching tool bag. Here's where I got the toolbelt pattern: http://makeitandloveit.blogspot.com/2010/02/childs-tool-belt.html (btw, don't look too hard at my top stitching - I do not claim to be a master seamstress!!)
I started on the Easter rag garland and I have about a foot finished...only 6 more feet to go. I really love how it's turning out though! Here are all the fabrics & ribbons that I'm using - that little bit off to the left side is the actual garland-in-progress:
And the crepe paper roses? Haven't even opened my crepe paper yet. I bought white, but I'm just not loving the idea of white rose balls. I'm looking for something a little less, um, wedding singer. The rose bowls will have to be on hold until I buy another color of crepe paper.
And the random projects? I started a book wreath - time consuming, but I loooove it! And I've been doing alot of spray painting and modge podging. You'll have to tune in a little later this month for those reveals :) In the eternal wisdom of Bugs Bunny...That's all for now folks!
