I blogged yesterday that I was going to try the mummy tutorial from Craftaholics Anonymous. If you get a chance you should go check it out! It is really simple, super cheap, and soo cute! Well, I officially finished my very first mummy and here it is: (Drum roll please.....)
I think it turned out pretty well, don't you think? It took a little while to make these there were a couple different steps and I think the longest step was probably cutting out the cheese cloth. It was really simple though. I plan on making a couple more to give out at our Halloween party as prizes! I hope everyone likes them:)
There was one other project that I was slaving over tonight and that was a pleated flower. I am a HUGE fan of flowers in general, on clothes, in your hair, and on other items, so I thought that I would try to make my very own! That's what I did! I found a helpful tutorial from
Craftaholics Anonymous that helped me with making this flower.
Can you guess which flower I made?
If you guessed the smaller one in the middle then you would be right!!! Winner! Winner, chicken dinner! :):) Haha!!!
I'm pretty proud that it looks like this. As I was making this, it looked nothing like what the tutorial on Craftaholics Anonymous ! It made me a little frustrated because I'm not a master sewer, that's for sure! In fact, I haven't really sewed anything other than mending my clothes. As I kept at it and put the finishing touches to it, I realized that it turned out much better than what I thought that it was going to:) Never judge a project until you are completely finished with it, that's what I learned from this project! Also, be patient. In case your wondering, what will I use this flower for which is a great question, and I will be using this for my crafting space. I plan on putting it somewhere on my desk, as inspiration to always remember to be patient during the crafting process.
Isn't it darling? I think so:) I will definitely be trying to make all different types of flowers and now I just need to figure out what I will do with them and who I can give them to. I was thinking last night that I will try to make HUGE pleated flowers for my kitchen to put on the wall. I can't wait to try it out and post it for you. Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting everyone! The Midwestern Newlywed:)
