If you have any questions about how the voting or linking work, let me know. And if you didn't make anything for others, hey, that's fine too! It won't be eligible for our little contest, but you can still add it to the Flickr pool.
You can also start thinking about what you want to do for March's theme: the impending seasonal change! This way, those of you in the Northern Hemisphere can make something light and springy, and those of you in the Southern Hemisphere can make something cozy and autumnal. Those of you living at the equator where it's the same all year round, well, I guess you can't play then...just kidding!
Lastly, this isn't stashbusting, but it's still sewing for someone else, so I'm including it in this February post: I put one of Mr. Cation's ties on a diet! See, he's had this normal-width whale tie for ages, and even though he only wears skinny ties, he's never donated it because well, tiny green whales. Need I say more? So for Valentine's Day this year, I took a quick one hour break from my shieldmaiden dress and skinnified the tie for him. It was very easy to do; I followed this tutorial and was really pleased with how professional it looks...at least, as professional as tiny whales can ever be.
|Why am I wearing this tie, Mom?|
|No, seriously, why? It's ridiculously long on me.|
|A closer look at the whales: look, they're even smiling!|
|Walnut's not smiling, though...he's just confused.|
I didn't think to take a before picture until after I'd already cut it open and started slicing off the extra width, but I'm sure you know what a wide tie looks like! Anyway, now I'm excited that I can bring home wide ties from the thrift store in outrageous prints, and then just redo them to be a more trendy size. I feel like the whole world is open to me now!!
|Walnut is not thrilled with the prospect of having to model more ties.|
