Bag and Resin

Finally got to sewing yesterday. I put the finishing touches on this tote. I hand sewed on the rick-rack and it was very therapeutic. Hopefully I'll get to some more sewing today. I was a bad girl yesterday and ordered some fabric from Sew,Mama, Sew! I couldn't resist. The Flea Market Fancy was on sale and I've been wanting it for soooo long. Anyway, that's it for fabric. I'm not buying anymore until I get some more sewing done.

Here are some more pendants waiting in the wings to be resined. Is that a word? Anyway, this process is becoming very addicting. It's pretty much all I can think about. I may post a tutorial somewhere down the line, but I need to perfect my technique first. When I first wanted to make these, I looked for tutorials everywhere and couldn't find any. So, this is trial and error, and if all goes well, you lucky gals may get a tutorial.

Now I need to turn the computer off so I am not tempted to read blogs or visit etsy. I must sew or perhaps vacuum the cheerio encrusted carpet.

I like the tree pendant. All those little leaves must of taken some time!

I bought some resin ages and ages ago to use for that kind of stuff and I still haven't even started to try it because it was hard to sort out where to begin. Craftster does have some info though. If you figure it out, be sure to share!

I love the pendants and I would love a tutorial - I am always very curious about these things that I have no experience with. They seem so mysterious - perhaps you could unveil it for me!

Fun! I love the tree and can't wait to see what the final product looks like.

I have never experimented with resin. I would be interested to learn more (when you have perfected it for us).

I love your tote and I love your resin pendants. I think you'd be doing us all a favour if you whipped up a little tutorial. *hint* :) :)
