Well, I’ve done it! I put one of my baby kitty projects up for sale on Etsy! Here is the link if any of you out there in internet land are interested.
It is hard to part with my kitties. hehe. I’m so silly! (That is if anyone even buys them!) Anyway, the Strawberries and Cream kitties are among my favorites that I’ve made so far!
I’ll post some pics of them here too. :)
Strawberries and Cream Kitties
My newest kitty comes to you in blue with white dots and orange and yellow accents with a chick in her tummy and a baby in her pocket. She is wearing a little bell (as is her baby) and she has blue and black eyes! :) She is very soft and lovable too! :) The chick fabric I made with spoonflower.com and the orange fabrics I got on HawthorneThreads.com. The blue and white fleece I got a Joann Fabrics.

I think I’ve finally gotten the shape of my kitty pattern pretty much figured out. I like the shape of this kitty a LOT better! And, I decided to put a pocket on it which led me to think of putting a baby kitty in the pocket! haha! I love how it turned out!!! My sewing skills still suck, but I love these two new kitties! I sewed the baby kitty totally by hand, because he was so small.

I just made this green polka dotted cat. He looks a little like the Lochness Monster I think! LOL I’m actually trying to get a better shape for the cat design, but haven’t succeeded yet! Guess I’ll just have to make more cats! haha!

Chicken or Egg
Here is the second set of swatches that I got from Spoonflower.com. I liked the way the little girl (Celia) one turned out, except that it had a couple of holes in the black where I forgot to color in the image, so I’ve updated that and it should be fixed now. :) I think the playing kitty one is interesting, but I also uploaded another one to see what it would look like bigger. With this one it really becomes more about the pattern, which can be good for some projects! I think the little chicken turned out pretty cute too!!! :) Yay!
Judie the Utie
I got my first fabric swatches from Spoonflower.com today! It is so exciting to see my drawings translated into fabric! The colors are a bit different (as can be expected with printing issues), but overall, I think they are so cool! I’m going to really have to work on creating some fantastic fabric designs!!! :) hehe. I can’t wait to use my very own fabric in my projects!!! Thank you Spoonflower! And, by the way, here’s a plug for myself…if you want to buy any of my fabrics, you can get them on Spoonflower in my shop. Here is the link: http://www.spoonflower.com/profiles/kristinbell. I think I get 10% of the purchase price or something, but if you do buy any fabric, I’d love to know and would love to see anything you make with the fabric! Okay, plug over! :)
I just got these super kawaii sticker/tape things in the mail today! I got them thru a sale at FAB.com. If you don’t know about FAB.com it is great, because you can get credits that act as real monies to buy stuff from the site. The masking sticker set is like tape/sticker stuff. Each card is about the size of a playing card. I thought they’d be much larger, but oh well. It is sometimes hard to tell from photos. The other ones are kawaii tapes that you can use for just about anything. I can’t wait to figure out how I’ll use this stuff! I’m a bit weird, because I’m very fond of office supply type products! lol
two three pictures of my very strange flower art project. This art project is made out of sewn bits of fabric, paper, tape, buttons, label maker tape, and a bit of watercolor. It was pretty fun to make, but very time-consuming. Now I really must work on my math homework! I think it looks better enlarged, so if you want to see it bigger, just click the picture. :) I just updated this post to include a pic of it with the foamboard and the yellow border. :)
Well, since it snowed twice this year, and because I had the ingredients in the house, I decided to make cupcakes. That means I’ve baked twice this year too which might be a record for me. I’ll have to find a better recipe if I decide to bake again though, because these don’t taste spectacular which was kind of disappointing. :( I think they look cute though! :) hehe
I don’t know if I’ll ever make it to France, but at least I can have a bit of France on my bed! hehe. I’ve had this cute French-themed duvet for years and just love it! I also have the French text pillow cases to remind me of my failed attempts at learning the French language! haha The cute cat was a gift from my friend! :) I got the French sheets and duvet from GarnetHill.com and the yellow dottie sheets from PBTeen.com. If you click the pic, you can see a closer view of the French pattern! :)
