I’m still at the conference. Still phoning in my posts (aka – publishing completely unedited re-posts from back when I wasn’t phoning it in.)
I’m still busy, in other words. I’ll be back live and in the flesh next week (or as much “in the flesh” as one can be on the internet anyway), but until then, enjoy another post from my old blog.
This post originally written and posted as a round-up of the crafts I made in 2010. I like to think I’m even more crafty now, but….I’ll let you be the judge of that.
….she gets around. She’s crafty…
I get a lot of comments on my craft posts from people saying that they wish they could knit and/or sew and/or whatever it is I was yammering about. But here’s the thing: these hobbbies are more intimidating than hard.
Because trust me, if they weren’t, I’d not be doing them. I’m not one to spend hours learning how to do something; not with my need for instant gratification.
If you can read and follow pictures, you can sew and/or knit.
While a lot of people are reflecting back on how well they accomplished their 2010 resolutions/goals/whatever word you use, I am going to reflect on my 2010 craft-ocity. These “reflections” will come in the form of pictures. Today, you get a post from me without (many) words.
Don’t get used to it.
I present to you: Katie’s crafts of 2010
9. A crap-ton of half-aprons (for my failed – boo hoo – etsy shop) – These were my two favorites.
10. More handbags (several were made in this style)
11. Embroidered produce bags (I even sewed the bags!)
I made several of these this year, as they are my go-to “you’re having a baby!” present. My cousin (the recipient of one a few years ago) told me on Christmas that she now makes them as her go to gift because her son loved his so much. *Warm fuzzies*
13. Summer sundress (This one fits me…unlike the other one I had to give my niece.)
14. My favorite wrap skirt (I’ve made a ton of these too.)
15. Embroidered bird patches (which are still just patches…I need to figure out what to do with them…)
16. Kids’ sundress
18. Full size aprons (quite a few of these too)
19. Nightie shirt
21. Messenger bag
23. Nerdy hat
24. A cupcake hat!!
25. A blanket (in progress….Hey, it counts!)
I know there was more, but I am both too lazy to dig around in my archives anymore and too tired to care. I know I made a couple other dresses and a bunch of handbags. Some craftiness does occur that doesn’t get blogged.
Crazy right? And here you thought I told you everything. I hope we can we still be friends?
Notice the trend – as the days got colder, knitting became my craft of choice and the sewing machine took a back burner. Now that I am all stocked up on new fabric (not that my dresser full of fabric at home doesn’t count as “fully stocked”), you can expect to see some more sewing.
At least I hope. That’s my intention.
What’s your craft? Or, what do you wish you could craft (and what’s stopping you)?
