Halloween sale!

October 20, 2013

I thought it would be fun for Halloween to put my Severed Hand Pincushion Pattern up for sale for 50% off .. so it’s just $3.00 right now … it’s a fun little pattern that teaches you to make the hand, dye the hand bruised and bloody, and make the glove. You can use it for a pincushion or do what I do – put it in odd spots as a Halloween decoration. People do tend to notice these!

The hand below was made using cotton fabric – the pattern calls for wool felt but you can make it in just about anything. I have this hand on my desk at work right now. 🙂

I’m pretty much done with this little Madame Alexander doll now. Just have to do something about her dress. She was a lot of fun and I’m learning a lot about layering paint.

Here she is being all artsy 🙂 Tres cool, eh?
