Pink Dots Sewn Sequined Flat Bottom Bag

I made this square bottom bag pattern a while back and I've made a couple more recently with added embellishments. I've been using them to store smaller items in my craft room. 

Like this bag, its for sale in my etsy shop.

Silver Colored Multi Layered Link Bracelet

Its hard to capture but this bracelet is three layers deep- the first and third sit directly on top of one another and he middle layer sits offset by half the width of the links. I like the complexity and depth of the bracelet but because of that I don't think that this will ever be one that I make in sterling (and have to solder all the links).

Fleece Lamb Stuffed Animal - My First Plushie

I've have wanted to try to make a stuffed animal for a while now but I was always intimidated by the number of pattern pieces. I finally got around to it and the worst part wasn't the sewing but cutting out all the little pieces. I used a store bought pattern and I thought that the instructions were a bit lacking. At this point Ive sewn enough that between what instructions there were plus looking at the picture on the front of the pattern I was able to figure it out but I think it would be fairly hard for a new sewer.

If you would like your own, I have one available in my etsy shop.

Blue Swarovski Crystal Link Bracelet

I had made this bracelet a couple of years ago with silver plated Swarovski crystal links and handmade silver plated jump rings and after wearing it for a week or so, it had been lost in a pile of jewelry in a drawer as I tend to make a lot of different types of jewelry and am always moving on to the next piece. As soon as I saw this one this morning I put it on. I had forgotten how much I liked it- simple yet sparkly.
