    My Crafts that keep me so busy

    I finally got a few pictures to post and share with anyone who's interested in made in the USA products. I have a dear friend who after pondering this for 10 years or so has decided to open a Christmas Country Market and if it does well we will grow. I've posted some of my crafts in the past and can keep adding to this thread as I dive into more projects. As of right now my time is stretched thin with an opening date of 3 weeks away but I will get done as much as possible and I hope you all wish me well.

    I plan on making fleece hoodies next with pixy pointed hoods and various color schemes. I do have a few pictures of the ones I made a couple of years ago and I have people requesting them now so I can make one a night. We'll see how that goes.

    I still have hair sticks and will be posting more pictures of what I have now as well as more crafts to come given I have the time. I normally make a lot of herbal products too so as you can see it doesn't leave much room for posting as much right now.

    These pouches and purses are crossbody style and are approximately 6 X 6 and 5 X 7 inches. The pouches are cushioned throughout and the purses have vinyl backing and insides. (I will be going to real leather on similar styles down the road) Hope you like them and I apologize for the photos not being great. Thanks!

    Thanks Susie, really appreciate it. I wish I had a decent camera or maybe someone that could actually take decent pictures. That's not me!

    Hey Vic
    look - although I don't have any shoes that go with your work at the moment I would like to complement you on the incredible detail work.

    next time I need to accessorize a new outfit I'll be looking back thru this thread!!

    I wish you well with this!

    Well thank you RM so much. I do guy stuff too now and then. I used to make guys these camo squared pouches that could go on a belt or sling over their shoulders when they went out hunting. I also did some men's totes again in camo that were pretty nice. They sold anyway. I am going to retrieve all my crafts later today from the Christmas store I had them in so after I get straightened out again I'll get some more pictures up. I appreciate the well wishes! I do it more for the fun of it then trying to make $$ although the money helps.

    Thanks!

    Ok, I'm going to show you one I did late last summer. I was given a plus size dress in bright tie dyed colors and I tried it on. I am almostf 5'4 and this dress was almost a foot too long for me. The bodice was tight and not comfortable. The bottom of the dress was so heavy and full. I decided to cut the bodice off and make a skirt out of the rest. The material was so large that I ended up making a skirt out of half of the bottom. I looked at the material I had left and decided to reattach the bodice as a short dress or top. It's versatile as both. The dress is half way up the thigh so pool side would look awesome or wearing short leggings would look adorable. A scarf thrown over the shoulder when wearing the dress over the skirt would be romantic and perfect for dinner. I do not have pictures of when it was a dress orginally but it looks much different now. It sure would look sexy on someone. lol

    Let me know what you think of my work. Thanks!

    Great job!
    Love long tiered knit skirts - easy, comfortable, and flattering.

    Wow! You are very talented.
    I love all the bags. And the dress and skirt are great too.

    Wow Vicki, those are AWESOME! I haven't been in here for a few years (eek, has it been that long?!) and yours was the first thread I hit, and what a great surprise. I had no idea you did such beautiful work.

    If you need a nice way to photograph, you can do it on the cheap like I did and buy some butcher paper, cut a long strip of it, tape it to the underside of your cupboard, let it drape down along the back and then across the counter to the edge. Then tape two more pieces to the underside along each side of the long strip so it forms a boxish shape. This mimicks a light box, I took a couple of lamps, removed the shades and put them at the edge of the box to force light in and let it bounce off all the white. If you put your gorgeous pouches in there, propped up on a clear base or even a little box covered in white paper, you'll get a well lit photo with little to no 'noise'. If you have a window that allows natural sunlight in, that helps give it a warmer feel too.

    Or you can buy a light box on amazon for about $30.

    Keep up the great work, I can't wait to see more!
