gifts for girls

dyed shirtMy sisters are pretty easy to make gifts for– I usually just create something I’d like for myself. I put my burgeoning dye skills to the test when making this shirt, and while I like the result, I definitely need more practice. It took me a few tries to get it just right. I also put together a matching accessory– a braided floss necklace on a brass chain (close-up here). The other sister received several expensive-to-ship boxes of hand-me-down pots and pans when she moved into her own apartment, so I told her she’d only get something small for her present. I whipped this up with materials I already had laying around:

dreamcatcherI used a twig, a few beads, and this tutorial, back when everybody was making dream catchers. It was well received, and is already hanging from her rear view mirror.

I’ll (hopefully) finish christmas gifts sometime soon, and I’ll have time to post about some not-so-secret projects.
