Sewing accessories for your hair and your ears.
Tag Archives: sew
I don’t really like wearing my hair down in the summer. I have such a mass of it, and it gets so hot. So braids and ponytails are my jam. I also really like headbands to keep hair out of my sweaty face while I’m outside. After seeing some cute headbands around, I decided to try to make a couple of my own. These ones are a tied variety, with a bit of elastic. Next I want to try a stretchier fabric! Do you know of any good headband patterns?
new in the shop: dinosaurs
Some dinosaurs have stomped into the Little Amaryllis shop. Get one today before they are gone off the earth again.
new in the shop: sale time!
I’ve been making stuffed animals! There are some guys in the sale section in the shop to help make room for the new zoo.
he was a scary bear
My latest custom stuffed animal request- something that looks like the mascot for Penn State. While my version isn’t really quite the same, I thought he was much more suited for a little baby nursery!
granny square blanket
My latest granny square blanket! In the past, I usually just sew my squares together with needle and yarn, but I tried joining them with a single crochet this time. I know there are lots of fancy ways to join squares, so I figured I might as well start working my way up. I really love how it turned out, especially the colors. What are you working on lately?
I love how this quilt turned out! All the fabric was found in my fabric stash, and I think the blues, greens, oranges, and blues work really well together. The back is made from a soft striped flannel. I finished it with little white ties in the center and corners of each square. Now only three quilts left to finish!
I love this embroidery pattern. I feel like its says- you are my best friend and you are always there for me- but with farm animals instead of words.
I started this pattern while I was sick the other week. I still like to feel at least a little productive while I’m stuck on the couch. It reminded me of my younger sick days, and I would cross stitch while watching movies. Its just enough project to keep you busy, but not too much that it makes your fuzzy head hurt more.
new in the shop: fancy bunnies
Time for spring soirees and summer picnics. Whatever the occasion, these bunnies are party ready in their fancy dresses. I’m going to make a banner out of mine, and then host an afternoon tea. Find them now in the shop!
a second t-shirt quilt
One down! All finished. A t-shirt quilt, comprised mostly of my extensive 4th grade Olympics shirt collection. I organized it in a lighter to darker color pattern going diagonally.
I finished it with a blue floral backing and binding. The binding probably took me the longest, since I did it by hand, and got a cold right in the middle that slowed me down. I added some little white ties to hold it all together. The batting is not too thick, so it feels like a light summer quilt. Totally picnic ready.
I have one more t-shirt quilt that needs a back, and one already made in the closet. They will be great fort material someday.
