Week 9

And yes, even though I'm uploading it mere minutes after Week 8, here is Week 9's Thing; an awesome tie dye scarf serged onto fleece backing. Just the thing to keep you warm and maybe a little bit green too as the tie dye part was upcycled from a great thrift store pillowcase find. I washed the daylights out of it, the tie dye is printed on the cotton so it doesn't fade out or bleed.

Buy tie dye scarf!

Week 8 (at last!)

So being the complete genius that I am, I didn't account for sickness in the course of making a thing a week. I usually don't get sick often anyways :P
So here is the late Week 8 Thing; the monster bag!

Buy grumpy monster bag here!

quick update

Week 8 will be temporarily postponed as I have spent the last 2 days sleeping in the bathroom trying to get over this stomach bug. Sorry for the beautiful imagery >__< Week 8 is halfway done, I started on it before getting sick. Some good news though: I had 2 etsy sales yesterday! I'm mailing them tomorrow because I can't make it to the post office today. It can't hurt that Make a Thing a Week is now updating on DeviantArt as well as facebook, twitter, and here.

Week 7

Welcome Mr Angryteeth! This was actually a previously made project for a previous Make a Thing that didn't get off the ground as well. I spent the past 2 weeks doing a massive reorganization of the sewing room and it's finally 97% done. Also with Halloween, a commission, and my 2nd wedding anniversary coming up (2 years is cotton, so I've been sewing my butt off) I've been a busy little craft monkey. I really want to make a bag of some kind for an upcoming Thing. But I'm getting off track again, here's Mr Angryteeth:

and as always, you can buy him here.

Week 6

Since this week it suddenly turned chilly in VA I decided to make a hat. Oh, but not just any hat, an owl hat! It's cute AND warm and for sale. There will be more of these hats in the future, oh yes :)

you can buy owl hat here

Oh! And if you have the chance before halloween, go vote for my scarecrow! Mine is the first one in the second row with the burgundy shirt, stuffed animals all over it, and the "Pet Center" sign in the background.
