T-Shirt Rug

Setting: The last year or two. Seriously.

Characters: Myself… and probably numerous TV episodes.

Plot: Essentially I just upcycled old t-shirts by cutting them into 3 inch strips and tying them to a rug base. I’m sure there is an easier way of doing it, but my method of choice was to individually tie each piece. There are hundreds of them! I think I’m going to think up a couple easier/faster ways of getting it done. Despite how long it took, I really like it. I’m going to experiment with neutral colors next.

Crocheted Turban

Setting: At home during 3 day snow day brought upon by Polar Vortex

Characters: Sherlock and Watson (thank you BBC and Netflix)

Plot: I wanted a project to occupy my time while I was snowed, iced and wind-chilled in.  I couldn’t find any patterns of turbans that I liked, so I made up this one.

The official return of Roxie to the Fox & Feather world!

This school year I’ve had the pleasure of starting my “big girl career” as a Spanish teacher!  Needless to say, I’ve been a bit preoccupied with work which is why I’ve neglected to post.  It is my 2014 resolution to start crafting (and blogging those crafts) more.  First craft of the new year:

Setting: Holiday break, hurrying to get presents finished.

Characters: Myself, my mom who gave me sewing advice, and BFF Lauren, the future owner of the purse.

Plot: My best friends Lauren, Heather (fox & feather co-author), and Anna call ourselves the “Core Four”.  It is our newest tradition to do a Christmas gift exchange.  This year we sat in a circle with our gifts and passed them around every time N*Sync sang the lyrics “Merry Christmas”.  When the song ended, the lucky recipient got the gift in front of them.  Lauren was the lucky recipient of this beaut.

Illustrator Print Fun

Setting: nothing exciting enough to mention.

Characters: Bethany – a dear woman in my life, and my trusty 7 year old Mac that may be missing a battery and be slower than molasses, but still runs Photoshop and Illustrator just fine so I refuse to give it up.

Plot: I dabble with Adobe’s design suite, and my friends know I enjoy it, and therefore commission me to design their wedding invitations, prints, etc. I do really enjoy it and I’m happy when my dear friends appreciate the end product. Anyways, posted below is a print of one of Bethany’s favorite bible verses.
