I've been collecting supplies for making more chokers, but I am waiting for my local craft shop to get more extension chains in stock before I can complete them (I could order some on-line but I like to support the shop because it's independent and the owner is such a lovely woman).
In the meantime I've been working on a few projects for myself. I think my obsession with bat prints is starting to get a little serious =P
I brought this fabric in Poundland before Halloween. It's supposed to be a Halloween scarf, the bats are velvety and the green is a gauzy type of fabric:
I do love the green but for this project I carefully cut out some of the bats and then hand-stitched them onto a skirt I got in the charity shop for 2.50. It's a pretty shade of purple but I wish I had checked the label before buying it; it's linen so it creases really easily! Still I can't too much complain because it was so cheap. Sewing the bats on took me about 6 hours, but I really love the effect!
I know that when you look closely there are tiny traces of green left but from a couple of feet away you can't tell so it don't think it matters too much =]
I might add some stripes of black velvet ribbon too when I have another 6 hours to spare!
I've also finished some sock animals I started making a while ago, well almost finished, I need to get some buttons to add to the butterflies wings. I might put them in the Etsy shop if I don't give them as Christmas presents.
