Week 5

This weeks Thing is 2 Things! I'm definitely working on more but my fingers were killing me. I just finished a big project for work which involved tons of sewing (and I don't even have a sewing job, haha) and it involved a bunch of hand-sewing of parts together. ANYWAYS, these Things are cute little fleece barrettes; a pterodactyl and my absolute favorite fish ever in the world - the ocean sunfish (mola mola)

I very nearly made a school of mola mola, and was actually watching a David Attenborough documentary on deep ocean waters while I made it. I want to make more! Ok, getting distracted again!

You can but the pterodactyl here and the mola mola here!

Week 4

First off, please forgive the simplicity of this week's Thing. I got quite a chomp from a green wing macaw and my left hand is still healing. Sorry sorry :P
I hope to be back on track next week :)

Anyways, onto the Thing!
This week's Thing is an etch-a-sketch ipod/iphone cover.

Week 3

This week's Thing is Toby the Derpasaur. I used to make loads of monstery things a few years back, but shifted more to clothing, costumes, bags, accessories, etc. It was nice to get back to this kind of thing though. I missed making stuffed creatures. So expect more in the future.

buy Toby here!

This week's thing is a t-shirt scarf! Made from a thrift store treasure find (because it's in my genes to find good stuff at thrift stores, haha)

buy the scarf here!

First Make a Thing a Week!

The first week in September means time to start up Make a Thing a Week! I just got back from Japan and it took longer than anticipated to get over jet lag (and the coming-back culture shock) so I went a little easy on my first project.

This Week's Thing:
small post apocalyptic bag, listed on my etsy shop
