Visiting the Crucible

For a team offsite at work, we went to the The Crucible. The Crucible is an awesome place where you can do crazy crafts like foundry (melting metal and pouring it into molds), glass working, blacksmithing, welding, jewelery making, neon and more. For our offsite, we did glass flameworking and foundry. Unfortunately, I didn’t get…

Class Project: Faux Wrap Dress

Here was my first project for the class. We needed to make either a shirt or a dress. Something with a bodice. Of course I decided to do princess seams because I apparently like to drive myself crazy. No, it’s really cuz I like the way they look. Strangely I didn’t read the package of…

We had a little contest to see if people could guess the cupcake flavor. Since you can no longer taste them, I’ll just tell…

Fabric Boxes
