dinosaur earrings

I downloaded this file from thingiverse and printed it at a quarter scale to make small enough dinosaurs. I broke off the loops that printed on the dinosaurs backs, filed down the rough parts, drilled a hole in the center and added small eye screws. My sister is going to love these!

I also made a cute dinosaur Christmas card on shutterfly to match (original photo found on Google) :]

prescription cookie jar

My sister is leaving for graduate school in 2 weeks to study to become a Pharmacist. As her going away present, I made her a cookie jar that looks like a prescription bottle. It is filled with sugar cookies that look like pills :]

I got the idea from Sugar Dot Cookies who posted a small tutorial.

I found a label picture in google search and edited it to look more like the ones at the pharmacy where she works. I couldn’t find orange cellophane so I used red and yellow (putting the yellow on the outside) to make it look orange. Then I just put a square of fabric over the sealing cap and screwed the lid over it.

animal scarves

Dec 27, 2013 at 6:07 pm (accessories, fashion) (, , , , , , , , , , , )

I made scarves this year as gifts to my friends and family (kept a fox for myself :D). I got the ideas and fox pattern from prudentbaby.com.

I hand-sewed my ears so they stick up a little bit. I also edited the pattern to make the wolf nose wider and guidelines for the bear.

I used soft flannel fabric and ultra cuddle fabric for underneath (so soft!). The scarves are a yard and a half long and I used 1/4″ seam allowance on everything except for the long body I used 1/2″.
