New Blues!

 

Hello all,

We’re back! After four months of change we are ready for the upcoming year with many new goals and creative projects. Expect more videos, more online writing and more connecting with other fabulous crafty individuals.

This week we feature the cutest baby ever … Baby Jett. He has been the main reason for the four month change. He is wearing his first DIY bob and bootie set. The white, brown and blue elephant printed cotton bib and bootie set was easy to execute. We have made over 12 sets of these items. We found this pattern in an unknown craft book over nine years ago.

Again, isn’t he the cutest model?

Until next time ….create your style!

Bags on DIY Bags!

Hello All,

It’s been a while hasn’t it. This week we paired a set of happy customers of What’s She Creating? Enterprises. The client on the left carries a brown faux leather printed clutch bag with a wooden circle accent and button. This is a great bag to take on day date excursions.

The client with the handheld tote on the right is working her bag. We constructed this item more than five years ago. This handheld tote is made of a black faux leather yoke and a turquoise, pink, black and gold printed cotton fabric. The handles are ribbon wrapped wooden dowels.

Both clients are extremely satisfied with their purchases and we love satisfying our clients. Why not check our online Etsy shop and order your custom bag today? Click here for the site.

Until next time….. create your style!

Seat Cushion Disaster

image

Hello all,

We decided to create some seat cushions for our kitchen island bar stools. However, this project was a bit of a fail. I don’t have too many failure projects but I’m not satisfied with this one. I thought I would post it anyway just to show that sometimes one may come up with a fabulous idea and it may not be completed perfectly. I thought of this design using acrylic paint and tape on fabric and stitched it together to create a pillow seat cushion. However, I didn’t make the pattern large enough. The design of the cushion looks rather weird. I spent a lot of time creating this print, my fingers were tingling after painting the various colors and it didn’t fit the bar stool properly. I became upset about this. I asked my husband if he would assist with painting a second copy of this design but he said don’t worry about making another copy. I am going to create this again but it may be in the next few months when the frustration has gone away. The cushions will be larger, the black strings will be gone and the colors will be different.

Until next time …… create your style! Even if you mess up just know you can always recreate.

Blue knit and Stripes

Hello all,

This week a crew neck maxi dress is featured.  The inspiration of this knit dress came from an image located online. I loved the black and white checkered print maxi dress in the picture on the right with it’s contrasting orange yoke. I decided to make this maxi dress with a blue contrasting piece and black and white stripes. I found the fabric at Fine Fabrics in Norcross, Georgia. I love this store because of the variety of items at decent prices.

I have made maxi dresses before however, this is one of my favorites. I could wear this dress every day and be extremely happy. The dress is accentuated with handmade earrings made and wrapped with newspaper and gloss and a handcrafted chain link necklace made by What’s She Creating? Enterprises. The model is wearing a black heel and a handmade beaded bracelet.

We hope you enjoyed our designs. We are in the process of creating our own accessory line in the near future!

Until next time ….. create your style!

DIY Purple Draped Blouse and Leggings

image

I am so in love with this DIY purple draped blouse with belt and leggings outfit-of-the-day! Just wanted to leave a short post for the day about these creations.

I was inspired to create this self-draped top after visiting a local women’s boutique. Now can I explain how it was made ….No. I remember just going with what felt right while in my sewing room one afternoon. I know it took a while to create the finishing hems of the garment. I am getting better at this self-drafting pattern thing though. I found this sheer chiffon at Fine Fabrics, a large fabric outlet store in Atlanta, Georgia for a low, low price of course. The top is paired with a pair of black lycra leggings made with Butterick commercial pattern B5788 pattern.

The large purple beaded necklace was created by DCH Designs, a local Atlanta designer. The earrings are made of a glossy paper wrapped bracelet made by us.  The colorful printed clutch is our product which can be found in the What’s She Creating? Enterprises Etsy Shop here.

Until next time ….. create your style!
