WIP Wednesday: Princesses and Apples
I found this fabric last week and fell in love. It is beyond perfect for K's secret surprise I had been working on (but then was put aside to work on the magazine project). It truly is such luck that I had to put that secret project aside when I did or else I would not have had the opportunity to buy this fabric to add to it. I can't wait for it to arrive at my door step.
Here's a peak at where I am at with that magazine project. I am working on some mini green apples at the moment. As you can see they are all at various stages in my pattern creation. I will be on pause with that project *surprise,surprise* once I get them all knit up, I ran out of yarn and am waiting for it to be shipped to me. I always seem to be on pause with one of my projects, huh? I have my fingers crossed that beautiful fabric gets here first so I can go back to K's project for a tiny bit,at least.
K has been really interested in my bulletin board lately and has been wanting one of her own. I knew a 3 year old and push pins would not go together so I made her a quick ribbon board as her inspiration board. I was in the fabric store almost an hour. I had so many beautiful fabrics in my arms I was debating over, great nature prints,bright prints...you name it. In the end though I thought deeply on Waldorf philosophy and went with the appropriate plain peachy/pink with a slightly darker pink for the ribbon. I am happy with my decision :)
Not including that time at the fabric store the fabric took maybe an hour total to do. I found the tutorial here . I added more ribbons for her tiny fingers, though.
As you can see she has already started filling it with things she loves, including a silly self portrait of daddy.
Back to my apple army! Happy Wednesday!
