Here's my SEW-Brina sign for the Quilted BEAR... That frame when I purchased it was 40% off at JoAnn . Trouble was... it was perfectly BLACK and I didn't WANT a black frame... I wanted an old timey Chalk painted White Frame! You guessed it... my first attempt at Chalk painting was about to begin! I promise I'll take photos of my journey through Chalk paint next time... but I was pretty nervous after my first attempt to make it Bright Pink (yes originally that's the way I was going) turned out all wrong... and ruined a frame. (Don't worry, I'll resurrect that frame in a later project)
So I didn't take pictures of my first attempt at Chalk Painting. NEEDLESS to say... It was WONDERFUL!!! I loved it! And though I used a cheap brand I got through JoAnn fabric and crafts store I still got excellent results... I adore my frame... but I need to mat my finished project. It's still cute though. Right?
Now that has me wondering what the Annie Sloan Chalk paint is like... this one was great... and everyone raves about Annie Sloan. So, I've GOT to try it! Stay tuned for further escapades with Chalk Paint! :D
Here is the Booth... With a few things I've added... The Book of Mormon covers aren't selling very well... which kinda bums me out. But I've had a lot of inquiries about the Quad Covers. I'm happy for that!
I think you may like some of the new things I've added.... They are NEXT------>
These are Knife handle necklaces... they are way fun and something new I've tried... I love trying new things and can't seem to settle down to just one thing to craft... I've got to try something new and be learning new techniques. That's what makes it all so much fun! Do you do that too?
These are the new leather cuffs I've hand crafted. They are really amazing. I had to learn to rivet with 14 gauge copper and silver wire... it was a challenge and I loved learning it. I deal in spoons and make necklaces and earrings already but this is by far one of my most favorite things! Those spoon handles are riveted on there tight and the cuffs are 8 inches and size down to 7 with the snaps...
I did some experimenting and I have really enjoyed playing with the leather. These will be in my shop for quite some time...
This Camouflage Quad was really fun to make... as you can see - it has several different fabrics to go with it and coordinating fabrics are so great to play with. It turned out really cute!
This is a new fabric I designed. I love the way it turned out on cotton! It looks great on canvas also. I imagine it would look pretty in just about any color. I'm excited about this fabric! I've already completed a couple of orders in this but was in such a hurry I forgot to take pictures! I'll take pics of the next order and show you!
Well that's about it for me on a cold - it's been SNOWING! - Thursday afternoon. Hope you all enjoy and go to my ETSY store for products that you like or contact me if you don't see it there. I have a bunch of stuff at Quilted Bear that I don't have on ETSY. Take care and talk to you next time on SEW-BRINA!
