My friend Eirwen and I are going to start doing craft days on Tuesdays! We're doing tutorials like silhouettes from Lolita Charm and bunny slippers from Violet LeBeaux! We also want to do some cross-stitch, make bows and headbows, and decorate our phones and MP3 players. I started decorating mine, but I'm using the sticky back ones, and I'm afraid they'll come off! But if I just use glue it gets all cloudy. Victoria Suzanne from lolita-charm suggest a glue with 'diamond' in the name (I totally forgot what it was, but they didn't have it at AC Moore).
Maybe we'll crochet flowers! As soon as I figure out how to do it again. I have a whole book on crochet and knitted flowers. I want to make hats too, I found my instructions (and lost them, and found them again). I won't be felting them though; I don't like the feel of felted stuff. I mean I guess it is okay for stuffed animals and certain kinds of hats, but all I see is "Yay I made a beautiful ---! Now I'll throw it in the washing machine and make all the beautiful stitches go away." ;_; keep your stitches people, they're beautiful! My neighbor crochets, maybe she'll teach me some new things?
I'd like to get back into making ribbon flowers. I have all the materials and a few books, but it's just so hard to figure out without someone teaching me in real life. I'm a visual learner I guess?
Anyway, I think our crafts are going on Eirwen’s blog Bon Bon de Sucre, but I'll post some pictures here too ^_^
OH! And felt cakes! Caro from Fuck Yeah Lolita is making a bunch, I want some! And I want to make them into tiny purses! And I want felt pies o.o; I have no idea why.
