Well. I sure was in a grouchy mood earlier this week. I’ve perked up considerably from the other day–I guess I just get frustrated about feeling like I’m trapped in a rut. I want so badly to be coming up with new things and making everything that ever crosses my mind but that’s just not possible, and I know it. FRUSTRATING!
I’ll try not to be so fricking annoying from now on.
So these are those hairpins that were in the photo from the craft show two entries down. I’ve had a lot of people say things about them, so I figured I’d show you a few up close.
They’re actually one of my favorite things to make for a show, because they really seem to make my table seem a whole lot fuller than it actually is. Plus, all of the colors really draws a whole lot of attention, and let’s face it–at a show, I’m looking for something that will do that. (Greedy Sarah.)
I love them for the fact that I keep every single last scrap of fabric now to make these. I have three bins in my sewing room (what the heck…let’s call it my studio) that I keep my small pieces in. I keep them organized by color:
1.) Blacks, whites and neutrals in one
2.) Green, blue and purple in another
3.) Red, orange, yellow and pink in the last
Color coding is very important to me, as you can see. You would never know this though, by looking on the floor and the desk and seeing that half of the fabric pieces never actually make it to the bins, because I don’t know how to clean. I just don’t think it’s possible for me to do.
So, regardless of all of that mess stuff, I had a bunch of hairpins left over from my show the other weekend, and today I decided to try photographing some of my favorites. I’ve put a few of the sets up at my Etsy shop, too. Just thought you might like to know that.
