WIP Friday

So that post wasn’t supposed to overwhelm you guys. In fact, I hoped it would have the opposite effect — I know nothing and get pretty good photos, you can too. The little roll of paper is cheap (like $30) and you can get it at your local camera shop. Hang some off a chair near a bright window and voilà you have a mini-studio. Or you could find a partner who is obsessed with these types of things but that will cost you a lot more. WAY MORE. Papa Urchin is a pretty good photographer though and I’ve been bugging him to start sharing more of his talent with the world so hopefully I can share something about that soon — are you reading this Papa?

Fabric Flower

Anyway, onto this week’s WIP — a flower using Blair’s tutorial. There’s a flickr group for finished ones too. Mine is going to be a hair adornment for Katie. The adorable fabric is the same as something else I’ve recently made her — more on Monday — that she loves so I figured I should stick with something that works. The selvedge says nothing so I’ll see if I can check out the tag on the bolt the next time I’m at the fabric store. These are super quick and easy to make, mine is just held up waiting for some felt for the back They are so easy in fact I might start making them all the time , I think I’ll be hunting through the remnants next time I’m at the fabric store too.

And one last thing, my blogging buddy Dawbis posted a fun little photography challenge for next week (starting tomorrow). Why not pop over there and read the details so we can see next week through your camera lens too.

    I see you’ve been bit by the fabric flower bug! They make adorable hair clips. I pinned one to a headband for Ellie and she’s been wearing that around.

    I’ve made those flowers (and a few others that I’ve seen around) and they are addictive! Your’s looks great….the blue fabric is so pretty.
    Do you know how to upload photos into a group on flickr? I can’t figure it out for the life of me….I think it is probably right in front of my nose…but if you could help, I would appreciate it soooo much. thanks
