Secret project!

Saturday, October 9th, 2010

I made a gift for my boy!

It’s a drawstring dice bag featuring a picture of us hugging! Made of black velvet with glow in the dark thread!
How about a how-to?
I cut out a piece of cloth about 8″x20″ and folded in in half so that it was 8×10. I unfolded it again, so that the […]

Hi, September, have a 3rd post.

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

I haven’t worked on any projects. I’ve been working on school during the week and having fun on the weekends. Got some leather scraps at the Renfest 2 weekends ago, perhaps I can make something of it.

Friday, May 7th, 2010

Ever have a brilliant idea, but then you look at it and realize it will be work, so you just stop?
That never happens to me. Ever. o_e [/extreme sarcasm]
This has been my attitude lately when it comes to drawing and inkscaping. Which is alright. Much easier to concentrate on abandoned needlework projects when starting a […]
