WIP Wednesday - Wait, I Might Have a Snappy Title...Nope.

I finally succumbed to the cold making the rounds at home and work.  As a result, all I've done for the past 2 days is stare longingly at my fabric.  I don't trust myself to cut anything when I'm sick, especially not something that I only have a limited supply for, like my Marauder's Map fabric!
Now up on Etsy, also have a giant cheer sized version

Fortunately I was able to finish up stuff before I lost the will to craft...Like a new sugar skull style Jack bow, and a super fluffy and textured cat.  The belly is scaly vinyl, so smooth and bumpy at the same time, and the purple is a dot minky which is extra soft!
I think I need to make more, with some of my awesome fabric scraps...
I'll be in the corner over here, with my tissues, trying not to contaminate my fabric...hopefully this cold passes fast because my list is growing out of control!

Current Projects:

  • Jack Skellington Wisteria Wallet - Done and in the mail
  • Marauder's Map NCW order
  • Hobbit Bibs
  • crayon rolls
  • India Hobo sew along from The Fabric Geeks group - I have some awesome panels just waiting to be made into a few of these, and they are so fast that I should be able to sneak one in!

Current Embroidery Projects:

  • Finger Puppets - Need to restock and try some of my new ones!
  • Stitch some of the new bows:  Cheer sized Jack, Sally, and Oogie; Ocean and other inspired bows
  • More embroidered peeker towels (and put together the finished hoods)
  • Ornaments - pull out baby machine and let her run?
  • restock key chains - maybe try some of my new ones or just add more Star Wars inspired ones... 
  • Kitchen towels with Christmas sayings

Current Crochet Projects:

  • Weave in ends on hats and cowls, add buttons.
  • WeeBee baby doll  - Just needs some face details, and maybe a swimsuit to wear when she's not in her tail...bikini sort of works...made up my own pattern and it's interesting...
  • Chunky Unicorn Blanket - almost finished up to the hood, then just ears, horn, and fringe!
  • C2C (corner to corner) baby doll blanket crochet with some random scarfie yarn - Need to figure out what hook I was using...
  • Mermaid tail towel, 2 skeins of yarn into this, I must be doing something wrong because it's not THAT big yet and I only have 2 or 3 more skeins to go.
  • Started working on cowls for the fall because they are mindless and fast...but I really should totally finish them, not leave them with tails and button-less...
  • Started a princess dress style blanket - Need to just add a border on the sides and it's done!  Even have pieces already attached :O

Next Projects: (orders and using up fabric)

  • Swoon Sydney messenger bags for birthday presents (from April and May...)
  •  Request for a 'small purse' for my youngest who has outgrown her Frozen Serendipity Hip...time to find it a new home!
  • Finish clematis that were cut at the same time as the swap one (3)
  • Storm Trooper shirt for me (super cute pattern, hopefully doesn't emphasize my 'mom bod')
  • Handkerchief Purse
  • Bag of the Month - Done 2 so far, the Minifacto and the Starlet Clutch, I think I need to do at least 2 more before the end of the year
  • custom knit leggings - Harry Potter marauder's map, maybe some 'exercise' ones?  
  • Tote bags using my coffee panels - India Swoon Pattern?
  • Baby quilt - Jungle Path pattern
  • Ruched Shirt
  • Baby mermaid gown - Found the fabric!  Maybe I'll just make one for fun since the Niece is already past the newborn size...
  • snuggle/lap quilts using reading quotes and flannel backs
