So yesterday I had a bad day. I was crabby from my period and then I got one mother @#$!er of an insect sting from a strange unknown bug that made my neck swell up like I had inserted three marbles just under my skin. So I forgot all about Fun Monday. Since it is the first time I had participated in months I felt really bad.
Then I remembered that I have often put crafty things on my blog. So if you are a regular reader, sorry this is nothing new but I'd rather recycle then not post anything all day. But I am not able to show you my other crafts until after 6 p.m. Central Daylight Time.
This is the Dorothy Dress I made my daughter this year for Halloween. I used a pattern so I am not that impressed by it.
These next two, however, are pictures of the Velvet Ant costume my son wanted me to make the Halloween before last. It was a bitch and a half to make, especially the head which was done with fabric, thread, duct tape, craft wire, hot glue, and pipe cleaners. The red fabric was terry-cloth like and got little red fuzzies all around the house. But my son LOVED it and still wears the hat every now and again.
This is a witch I made for the hell of it. She flew around on the ceiling fan. She is made of nylon, black fabric, a dowel rod and left over craft wire from the velvet ant costume. Her hat is poster-board with fabric over it and stickers. The hair is embroidery thread. I also sprayed her with glow-in-the dark paint to see if it would work (it didn't).
Finally (just so you don't think I only do Halloween) if you look at the foot of my daughter's bed (under the pink Afghan that someone else made for her) you'll see the purple quilt that I made. I am not a quilt maker and it sucks, but I try and that's about all I can say. I do love the fabric from which it's made.
I'll visit all the Fun Mondays later. If I remember I'll even post my other crafty stuff.
