Wilde Does Stuff: No Sew Patterned Scarf

Image
First off, I think it's important that you note I was totally, 100% riffing on this wonderful blog post by Sugar & Cloth, which I naturally found on Pinterest.


After a weekend of taking care of my husband, who has shingles, and chasing my toddler, I was ready to do something fun to start off my week. This project was the perfect combo of cute and freaking easy. My favorite!
First I cut off the bottom of a t-shirt that I didn't wear anymore. I also cut off the bottom hem just for symmetry. I used a rotary cutter to make the edges as clean as possible, but someone with super steady hands and very sharp scissors could probably pull it off with those too.

I then gathered a small pie tin, some black fabric paint, and a toilet paper tube. I squished the tube slightly to make it more leaf-shaped instead of round. I know, it's fancy. Hold your applause until the end.
Then the really hard part - coat the end of the toilet paper tube with fabric paint and use it as a stamp on t…

Shop | Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest | Amazine What inspired you to open a shop? Adorebynat was born when I started making handmade cards in 2004. It started as a way of supporting my cardmaking hobby. As a paper addict, I wanted to have as many papers as I could. Tools and embellishments could get very expensive when you could not restraint yourself. Back then, I sold mostly cards.

My shop is my full-time job now. It has slowly evolved from just handmade cards to party decorations as well. I make favor tags, banners, cupcake toppers, door signs, napkin rings, teabag favors, invitations for any occasions such as wedding, baby shower, bridal shower, birthday etc.

What is your current favorite item in your shop? Why? My favorite item is the Alice in Wonderland Teabag Favors. It's a popular item as well. These favors can be personalized for wedding and baby shower parties.
What is your favorite quote?  Good things come to those who believe, better things come to those who w…

The Print Purge

Image
I've already said that 2014 will be a year of shifting and changing in the shop with one of the big things being editing on my part. Curating. Making more solid choices now that I know what people respond to and what people are really willing to buy and are interested in.

With that in mind, a lot of prints that I sell will be disappearing from the shop - probably within the next couple of weeks and then more steadily moving out over the course of the year. So now is a great time to grab your favorites if you've had your eye on a print of a piece of art or a photograph and haven't taken advantage yet. You can find everything at my shop for now.
Can't stand to see something go? Tell me! I really do want to know.
