I couldn’t resist putting up this pic of Zoey kitty with her new bow tie. If you’d like one for your own kitty, head on over to Sweet Pickles Designs! :)
I just finished making my yellow-backed Calculus pillow. It has soft fleece on the back and my Calculus fabric that I made on the front. Here is the link for the Calc Fabric: http://www.spoonflower.com/fabric/1147427. It took a lot of stuffing to fill it, and I probably should have made it with an insert instead of filling, but meh! I love it anyway! Should help me get comfy when I need to do my Calc homework! haha. And yes, it is made from actual Calculus homework! :) Yay!!!
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.
Here’s my newest cat. This one has cupcakes in his stomach and a bow on his tail! I’m still not quite happy with the shape, but I like him anyway. It is hard to hate your babies! lol
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 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! :)
