Small Gift Bags

Hello,

Had these small bags for awhile. Finally decorated them.


Here are a few more.  The pink and purple were made with 2 pieces of 8 1/2 x 11 card stocks.  The Black one was made with 6 x 12 card stock.
 I personally enjoyed making my own bags then bought bags to decorate them.

You can fine all these bags at my Etsy shop.

Until next time....

First DreamBird Shawl Finished

Hello,

I know it is Summer, but I still wanted to share my first DreamBird shawl.  



My shawl doesn't shape like the original shawl because I used size 4mm and 4 ply yarn.  It is very thick and heavy.  Now I know why the pattern called for size 3mm knitting needle. I already bought new yarn for another DreamBird shawl.  Hopefully the second one will come out nicer.

Until next time....

DreamBird Shawl Practice

Hello,

When I first saw this dream bird shawl a few year ago, I wanted to make one so badly.  I didn't mind paying for the pattern either.  But after I read comments from people who followed the pattern, they said the pattern was confusing.  Therefore, it hold me back from purchasing the pattern.  Not long ago I started to search for tip on making the DreamBird shawl and I found a few that said the pattern was easy to follow.  All I need is to follow a one page line by line instruction.  I decided to buy the pattern and gave it a tried.  Here is my first feather practiced using 4 ply worsted yarn. It took me a long time but I did it the very first try.  Very easy to follow just need two stitch markers (I used scrap yarn) and a row counter. 


Stay tune for my first completed DreamBird shawl.

Wedding Cards

Hello,

I was debating to continue blogging or to stop because I am completely lost interest now.  It used to be exciting now it's like a chore.  I still make ton of stuffs though.

Any way I'm going to give it until the end of the year.

I have a few wedding cards to share since it is wedding season.

I saw this card on pinterest.  I thought it is so cute.  

 My friend Elisabeth gave me some wedding stickers.  I quilled the rings then added the stickers.




 This last one is  popular.  I made a few of them and they were all sold.
Thanks again for looking.  Have a lovely day.
