Here is my free sample stash for the last 2 weeks. I've also earned $5 in Amazon codes from Swagbucks, $3 from Pinecone, and .10 from YouData. I love free stuff!
I've been working on Lily's Halloween costume. Trinity's is done but she won't let me take a picture of her in it till Halloween. Lily is going to be a little Green Pixie. I finished the wings and a little coat to go over the costume, because her winter coat just wouldn't look right :)
For the coat I use 2 thrift store Afghans that I felted when I went to wash them. opps :) I used the Pintuck Sweater Tunic Pattern By Heidi and Finn. It's the same pattern I used to make that little pink top for Lily. This time I just use the pattern pieces and used the back as the front. The buttons are vintage and from my stash.
I love the up and down zig-zag!
And the Granny Square sleeves.
Here are the the Pixie wings. I used 2 coat hangers, one for each side and a pair of old pantyhose. Because they are so small I had to sew the pantyhose to the hangers and then Modge Podge them. After the Modge Podge dried I painted them....they looked soooo plain. To fix that I glued a bunch of handyed wool locks (the same ones I use for my Zombie Batts). I really don't want anyone to mistake her for Tinker Bell.
Here they are after the Modge Podge.
And the paint.
I have the dress together but still need to finish the neckline and embellish. I even felted matching wool to add :) I can't wait to play with it later. I also have to sew up the leggings.
I should take pics of my WIP for you too....hmmm
Oh I wholesaled some of my jewelry to a local shop, Lamb's Gate. I also took another batch of Cat Nip Pillows to Pruess. I really like this wholesale thing! I'd like to do consignment or wholesale with a couple more shops. It's hard only relying on etsy. I think that all I have for you :) I hope everyone has a great weekend!
