Snake Scarf

So it’s a little later than it’s supposed to be. I actually decided to have a life yesterday and went out to celebrate a friend’s birthday. So I give you the cop-out snake scarf!


Scarves galore!

Seriously. I have sweaters all over the bed, all over the floor and so much wool lint that it would make any wool felter jealous. I could probably create a full sized capybara with this ridiculous amount of lint. Anyway, it’s at a point that I’m drinking so much caffeine to catch up with scarf-making that I completely passed out on the bed as I was crafting. Where’s Amy?

In all seriousness, though, the scarves are for Bazaar Bizarre, a craft show at Fort Mason Herbst Pavillion. Clicky on picture for more info.

What can you expect to see from me? Well, the scarves are all 100% upcycled sweaters and I’ve only used the softest, most luxurious sweaters I could find. Since each scarf is made from a different sweater, every scarf is one of a kind. You’ll never have to worry about someone walking in the room wearing the same thing as you! Feel great that you’re keeping warm, being green and you also don’t have to worry about getting red paint splashed all over you, since you’re not wearing a real dead animal on your shoulders. I will also be taking custom orders (to fill before Christmas) to the first fifteen people and anybody who would like to donate their old sweaters will get five dollars off each scarf purchase.

These are just a few animals that you’ll see at the show. Unfortunately, some of these have been sold, but there will be plenty of others for you to choose from! Please email me if you have any questions. I’m in booth #38 and I hope to see some of you there!

chess and frames

I saw this wonderful chess set at a scrapyard and decided to purchase it, with intent of giving it a complete makeover. I really should have taken some before pictures, but I spent 30 minutes of my life yesterday scrubbing this giant sticker they put on the bottom of the box. I probably could have spent that thirty minutes doing something else with my life… surfing the web… watching movie trailers… staring at the ceiling… instead, I decided to be productive, sort of.
