Were very much on my Christmas gifting list this year! I actually made 3 pairs but entirely for got to photograph one, so there's just the two in this post.
I made these red ones for a friend who loves his music (and whose wife handily mentioned they are aiming for a red kitchen!).
The green ones were for a friend who's house is slowly becoming festooned with my sewing (poor so and so!), so I knew the green would tone with their colour scheme and the yellow might just be the last tiny scraps from his wedding frock coat!
The not pictured set were blue floral and to tone with aprons I'd already made in that house (no point matching the kitchen as it's about to be redecorated).
I love Alice in Wonderland and in the summer I am hoping to have a very special Alice project to show you. But for now, let me show you this Cheshire Cat inspired dress I made for a friend's Christmas gift.
It's a mash up of Alabama Chanin patterns and all the seams are on the outside on purpose. I used pink and purple t-shirting and I really enjoyed making this!
I am now wondering about making a stripey dress for me!
So, I didn't entirely make this! Katy sells these adorable tiny lace crowns and I knew I wanted to give one to my friend Lamoriel for Christmas, but I also knew I wanted it a bit... well Blingier! So I bought a red crown off Katy, got my beads out and went to work!
I added a line of red pearl beads round the base and some red seed beads along the arch design in the lace. I then added a single gold seed bead to the centre of each lace flower.
I'm so pleased with how it turned out! Lizard (who was with me when I added the beads), was so impressed that she asked nicely to have her crown blinged up and picked out the beads she wanted on it.
As you can see here, the end result was much admired as well!
