I almost always look at the patterns when I am at Goodwill. This is the first time I have actually purchased one, but at half off (it was the correct colored tag) I thought I would risk it. I picked up McCall’s 5857.
The pattern has been cut out but doesn’t look like it has been used (or at least never been pinned), aside from a few markings for what I’m guessing are changes the previous owner wanted to make.
And the bonus inside the one piece that was cut out. A piece of pre-cut interfacing, for the view I was planning to use first.
Since I liked how the earrings I made yesterday turned out I went through my recycling to find another piece of paper I liked. I found another picture from a glossy paper flyer.
I like these but I might make another pair when I get another flier from this company since the stripes are going different directions. If I do make another pair I will give one as a gift.
These are really simple earrings, all you need is the “trays” the domes and glue.
I started by cutting little pieces of paper to the size of the glass domes. The paper I used was a shiny advertisement paper. I cut the little camo circles out of a hunting blind featured in a shiny paper ad.
Then I glued the paper to the domes and glued them into the trays.
I really like how these turned out!! the glass dome magnifies the image. As soon as the glue is set I will wear them.
If you remember my glittered heel refashion I didn’t love the way it turned out.
But they have always felt comfortable to me and I wasn’t ready to give up.
After finding a some scrap paper that looked like cork I knew how I wanted to fix them.
First I made a pattern out of aluminum foil.
After tracing the foil pattern onto the paper and cutting it out I found that it didn’t match up, so I cut it up into little pieces and used outdoor mod-podge to glue the paper over the glitter.
And now I love them!!!We are going to a wedding in few weeks and I hope the weather is warm enough for me to wear them.
It actually cost about the same to get the stuff to make the cake as it would have to buy one, but now I also have leftover ice cream.
I started by chopping the peanut butter cups that my daughter wanted on top while the vanilla was softening.
And once the ice cream was soft enough I spread it over the cake.
Then I topped it with the peanut butter cups.
