I have shared a couple of times already, but I’m just so excited about my comic: “The Cracked Cup Coffee Co.” which was created and written by me, with art by my husband, Tommy Krippes.
Please check it out, if you have time. We have a lot of fun with it.
Also, in my spare time, I have been doing a lot of sewing, and creating, but haven’t had a lot of time to get any great photos. I will get a few of those up ASAP.
In the mean time, here are a couple of photos I took, while I was out with my husband, last week.
I’ve started making something new! I’ve had the idea for this project for a while, but I didn’t have time to start it (with getting married and moving, and everything), so I finally started last night!
I made this cute little wallet out of the fabric that I painted! It was a really good test run, to see how the painted fabric sews. It’s a little stiff, but my sewing machine had no trouble sewing through he paint.
I found this cute cameo on sale! I happened to have this ribbon, and thought it was a pretty good match to the orangey/gold color of the jewels on the necklace. I just put the cameo on, sewed up the ends of the ribbon, fed jump rings through, and attached a clasp. It took maybe 5 minutes, and turned out pretty well.
Let me know what you think!
Okay! I made a shirt! Sorry, for those of you who knew I made it, that it has taken me so long to get pictures up!
It was very, very simple. I just used the pattern that I used for the top of the hoodie, made it longer and slimmed it up a tiny bit. It is literally just two pieces sewn together in this shape. I hope you like it!
Okay! I finally was able to get picture of my hoodie (thanks to my wonderful fiance)! I didn’t get a ton of pictures of the process, but I did get a few. I made the pattern out of tissue paper, and went from there! This was definitely an experiment but I think it turned out pretty well! I took quite a few pictures of the finished product, so you can see all of the angles. This is definitely something you could wear everyday or use in a steampunk outfit, by adding an under bust corset, a cute skirt and a few lovely accessories. As you will see, I had a couple of helpers in this process! Isis (the little tuxedo kitty), enjoyed laying on the fabric while I was trying to lay it out. Leo (the black cat) was playing with the tissue paper I used to make the pattern, and Ava (the puppy) had a nice nap laying on the fabric pile. I hope you like it! Please let me know what you think!
