eye mask craft disaster

I’m taking a break from endless studying to bring you this slice of craft failure, in the form of my valiant attempt to make an eye mask. Seemed like one of those things that should be so simple…

In one of the many assorted boxes in my craft-spare-junk room, I found some of those removable pad things that go inside bras to make them padded or push-up or whatever. In any case, they were a sort of eye shape, so I thought ‘ooo, wonder if they would make a good eye mask?’. The answer, I now know, is ‘no’. However, this wouldn’t be a blog post if I didn’t continue with the long ‘noooooooooooooooo’, with bonus pictures of each horrifying stage. The more wrong it went, the more pictures I took, I think in the hope that perhaps my eyes were mistaken – but no, it looked just as wrong in photo form.

Anyway, after dismissing a thought about sewing material round each individual bra-pad thing, and joining them together at some later stage, I eventually just sewed them together, in what I thought resembled an eye mask:

Whenever I’m in a charity shop, I always have a rummage through the selection of old ties. Having acquired a few of the things, I figured I should probably start turning them into stuff.

What with it being summer and ice cream weather, I was wondering what to do with the scraps of ice cream patterned fabric that I had leftover from a previous cushion. I started to cut out the individual ice creams and then tried spreading them out across different fabrics. It didn’t quite work, so I cut some fabric out to back them and started trying to group them together.

Another short post to join my other cushion posts, this time with a cat pattern on the front, instead of the usual ribbons, buttons and beads.

I had a day where I thought ‘I really need to make fabric flowers’, you know, like you do. Anyways, I found my box of fabric scraps and started messing around with gathering bits of materials and sewing them together.

gold bead cardie

Posted on

Absolutely ages ago I promised that I would upload images of another cardigan I’d lazily sewed some beads on.  Unfortunately, my degree module started and before I knew it I was sunk in a mire of endless reading and assignments.  I kept promising myself ‘craft breaks’ but suddenly crafting seemed like such a slog compared to the relative ease of pressing buttons on a remote control…

Thankfully, I’ve made it back out to continue blogging about the veritable sea of crappy items that pass for ‘homemade craft’ in my house. Read the rest of this entry

ribbon cushion

More cushion action, once again using my seemingly never-ending supply of remnants from C & H Fabrics.

The fabric is absolutely beautiful, really light and perfect for the reason I was making it – as part of a wedding gift!
