Crafts: Work In Progress Wednesday!

16 Nov

Welcome to Work In Progress Wednesday! Here is where I show off whatever I’m working on for the week and I also give other shops a chance to show off what they are working on. I’ve always been a big fan of getting to know the person behind the shop and I feel like this is a great way to give everyone a chance to see a little bit behind the scenes of the lives of some amazing shops!

This week I’ve been crocheting a candy cane scarf for a custom order! As soon as I got this order I was super excited about making it and I love it so much that I might just make one for myself!! When it’s all finished I’ll be adding on pockets to the ends as requested. I love pocket scarves! I’m always the kind of person who loses gloves so this is perfect for sticking your hands in to keep them warm or dropping your cell phone in so it’s easy to get to later!

My shop is: Daydreaming Gifts


Here are some other stores I think you might like:

“This is my newest design, GlowBall Greetings- “Peacock Holiday” .  GlowBall Greetings are a unique way to show someone how much you care about them. GlowBall Greetings are a cross between my personal electronic art and traditional greeting cards. This concept came out of creating the first prototype for someone I was in love with a few years back…so the concept came out of love. awwwwwww…

Still working out the bugs with the color choices, though. I wanted purple to be in it…but i might go back to the royal blue ribbon. I’m working on a 2nd version now. I’m also working on the photos as well. There is a peacock feather in there…but i didn’t get a good shot of it. It’s in the back!”

“One of the many things I make are back packs, I found this really nice fall color Hawaiian print fabric and I am in the process of making one of my backpacks out of it. These back packs are great to have for going on a quick trip to the store, going to the gym, going taking some snacks and maybe a frisbee with you to the park. They are great to carry a few things you might need when you don’t want to carry a purse or a big backpack.”

“I am making this baby blanket as a Shower Gift and it has to be done by SATURDAY! I am already a week late as her shower was last week but my baby was running a fever so I schedule a make up lunch with her. Baby blankets are not my favorite item to make, but I do one ever so often.”

“I have been getting ready for a craft and toy show for this weekend. Usually when I go to shows I like to have my Jewelry trees for displays, and maybe sales to! So  I have three to make, I did one today and hopefully a few more tomorrow. Everything starts out like this….. just a bunch of wire and believe me you can’t take a GOOD picture of plain old wire. Then I twist the heck out of it, and it turns into a tree.”

“I am working on making these stockings for my family members as part of their Christmas gifts. I also have one for sale in my Etsy shop, Christi’s Crochet Corner. Give the gift for that special someone a unique touch with this crocheted masterpiece. Crocheted with Red Heart Supper Saver acrylic yarn this striped stocking measures 16″ long x 6″ wide. The cuff is crocheted with an embroidered holly motif. I can personalize this item with a name instead of the holly. Just let me know in the note to seller section at checkout and please allow an extra 2-3 days for me to make it.”

As the Holiday’s approach, I decided to debut some of my paper-goods at a craft-show my bestie, Jennifer told me about. I really wanted to be a part of one after I helped her with her show a couple of weeks back. Because I am pulling back on my hours at work I will be able to have more time to actually pursue these, Cupcake Wrappers. I’m really hoping to perfect these and let people know about this new niche in Cupcake Fashion!

“This is a pillowcase order for a 1-year-old.  The dress is so itty bitty, it’s too cute!  It’s pretty easy too.  I first cut the arm holes and then hem up the top and bottom.  You put the two pieces of hemmed cloth together and sew down each side.  Thread the ribbon in and you’re done! :)”

“This is the beginning of a ‘Cuddle Buddy’, my stuffed animal mini blankets.  🙂   This one will be an ivory fleece hippo with a brown cotton flannel nose, foot pads, and bottom. These blankets are a perfect size for your little one to carry everywhere!”
