I Finally Spat It Out

I spent today's public holiday at home tidying up my crafting stash and found more stuff I need to decide what to to with them.  I stumble on some of my unfinished steampunk ensemble; i.e. the one sided spats (as mentioned in this blog entry).  So I decided to push myself to complete these spats...
... just to realised that I lost the pattern (pfft!), so I decided to start from scratch.

Tribal Princess

I enjoy doing costumes and what more to help a friend.  Irene was to make her own hair accessories for her tribal belly dance costume.  And, I quickly jumped at the chance to help put this together.
Irene showed me some pictures of how her hair piece was supposed to look like.  And with those crafting stuff she bought, we were soon on the way ...

Back Then When

Dug out a skeleton from my closet of non-sewing past ... check out the cute little tote I made with the braided handles.
And the bottom of the tote bag, with a straw board base, lined from inside.  There is a very embarrassing how-to back story for this bag which I made when I was in my early 20s.

Felt Collar with Ruffle Bouquet

Over these couple of days, I been experimenting a lot with felt, seeing that I'm piling up so much of felt in my stash.  After browsing online for ideas, I decided to try my own version of a felt collar in deep cyan, lined with champagne colored tulle.  I made a matching felt flower brooch to hold the felt collar in place.
I cut 2 pieces of about 1m length of felt, in tapered width of 15cm at the widest, to 11cm at the narrowest.
