I made a couple little things today, and sewed on an "angel" swap which I'll have to show you later.
I had been wanting a key chain thingie, so I used a tutorial I found and then did my own thing with it. I think it turned out cute, although I think it's a bit long so I'll probably make a new, shorter one. But this will do me fine for now.And then I found a tutorial for a cup sleeve (although I can't remember where!). A couple of years ago, I had made TWO cup sleeves for my ever-present Starbuck's "Venti Black Ice Tea, No Syrup" that I'm constantly drinking and they worked great...until the janitors threw them out! This happened twice...until I finally told them to please not throw out anything that's NOT in the wastebasket (they are great janitors, and very sweet, but they overdo it sometimes). I like this one because it's adjustable. Actually, come to think of it, I don't know why I would even SAY that, because I always get the Venti, and I always get ice tea! So the cup is always the same size! So scratch that- I guess I just like the button, and the fact that the loop is made out of a hair tie - how fun is that!
Of course, I just HAD to use some selvedges in it!
Speaking of selvedges, I recently made myself a new bag using selvedges, too...but the pictures didn't turn out so great. Here are the ones that are viewable. I used one wide strip to make a selvedge rose and dangled some beads from the center.Of course, it didn't take me long to fill 'er up!
