Wanna get rooted?

My friend Mallys had the misfortune of having a dental procedure instead of a nice birthday so I made this greeting card for her.

Leather wrist cuff

Bought a bag of assorted leather stuff at Hobby Lobby and finally made something - a wrist cuff. The centered glass "rock" has graphic image underneath with micro-beads around border with button and ribbon loop closure.

Another pink silk scarf

I just love me some silk,

love me some pink,

love me some beads.

Patchwork belts ~OR~ Don't throw that away!

Hey, remember when I bragged that I was able to toss small fabric scraps? Well, dammit all, no more! Nope, now those scraps make up fabulous patchwork belts, pattern courtesy of creative little daisy's craftsite.

These belts are constructed of silk fabric scraps from the amazing Eileen silk fabric stash.

Fair warning: I found myself a few squares shy of desired finished length. The next thing I knew, I had enough squares to complete FOUR belts.

Silk tank for Eileen

Eileen, my fairy godmother of the silk fabric stash, gets the fabulous ribbon tank top. It is from the same pattern as Kay's tank but with vertical stripes.

Wanna know how to cut a pattern so that you can use it for any size? As in, Kay is one size, Eileen was the next size down. Don't cut the pattern to size. Instead, make cuts into pattern and fold back. Use the temporary adhesive. You now have a pattern with all sizes intact.
