This weekend I went on the hunt for some vintage -- or at least vintage-looking -- sheets for crafting. Struck out. :( Boooo. But I did find a bunch of other good clothing items that I can break down for material.
Woohoo! And some of those pieces were vintage - bonus! (Not cute vintage though - like weird uncle vintage. Not good for wearing, but great for crafting.)
I'm currently working on a bunch of projects - the biggest of which being a new art doll, and my dragon of course. But I spent most of the weekend working on my gnomes. :) I'm in love with them.
So now, after some serious crafting sessions this weekend, here's the latest lineup of the gnome-squad.
Now featuring Wee Gnomes!
Aren't they cute?! (My first gnome is available in my Etsy shop. Other gnomes can be seen on Pooknflip's Facebook page -- are you a fan yet?!)
So why am I churning out gnomes like a mad woman you may ask? (Especially when I should be working on other stuff right now.) Other than the fact that I just think they're so darn cute, I'm strongly considering trying out my first craft fair this year. :) I've never been to this particular event before, so I'm not really sure if it will be for me. I do know it's just a small, high-school hosted holiday event (which is perfect for a first-timer like me) - but that's about it. I want to check it out...ask a lot of questions...see if it would be something I could do. Ultimately though, I need to pump up my inventory. The show is in November, and it might seem like a long way off -- but it's really not, considering how much plush I would need to make between now and then to have a good show.
So I've been a bit pre-occupied with that. But I did get another wing sewn for the dragon this weekend too. And I've got some great fabric bits I picked up for the art doll order I've got. He's gonna be like Eustace - but he'll be a hurly burly mountain man. I'm excited.
