Handmade Update May 2017

This month I wasn’t very strong on sewing – I fixed a lot of stuff, but I only managed to make one dress – I really hope next month will be better. However, I started embroidery (since I do not have enough grandma hobbies yet) and painted a bit. (Also, the new blogbanner etc.)

Bumblebee Embroidery

So this was my first piece of embroidery – it’s a bumblebee. It’s far from perfect, but I hope to create a few pieces in the future.

I also decided to paint little BB-8 to get back into watercolours and I really enjoy picking up the colours every once in a while.

So, then I chose to embroider BB-8, which was an interesting learning experience. Opening stiches again and redoing things.

Landscape Postcard

This was another learning thing – I never drew/painted a landscape, so I looked at some of Rottmann’s work – and I think the mountains are quite nice. Nevertheless I realise they should have shadows in the water.

Leia Belt
17th, 18th, 24th of May
For my cosplay I was in need of the belt, so I made it of faux leather, clay and acrylic paint. I know the original is made using metal pieces, but I didn’t have any. So I got creative.

Chuck Charles Charlotte Pushing Daisies Postcard

You know Charlotte Charles from Puhing Daisies is one of my all time favourite characters and fashion icons, so I wanteed to paint her for a while and I finally did. It’s not realistic yet, but it’s cute enough.

20s Dress Black Gold Glitter

22nd, 29th, 30th of May
I wanted to make another 20s dress since the first one I made (about a year ago), now I finally did and while I have to fix a few things in the back, I think its quite fancy.

Wat did you make recently? And what are you working on?
