Hand Crafts

Most of my hand craft work has been photo albums. Primarily wedding albums, as many of my friends and relatives have been getting married, but I have also already done a baby album as well. I have a few pictures of albums, although too often I made them at the last minute and did not take the time to take a picture before I sent them off.

Here is my latest experiment, actually sewing a cover to slip on and off, rather than glueing on the fabric to a craft album. Even the lace is sewn into the seam. It worked very well for the first try. The trick was keeping the puffy batting in the album as well.

I also used my new sewing technique to make this wedding album for my friend Margery. Her wedding colors are black and white, so I tried to find some interesting white items to add to the album.

For Margery's bachelorette party, I put together this veil. And for the wedding, I assisted Margery's new mother-in-law, Carole, in decorating the yarmulke basket.

Other craft items include two latch hook pillows. Well, really four latch hooks, which I made into pillows by stiching them together back to back in pairs. My sister and I made these latch hooks when we were much younger, but I only recently turned them into pillows. One side of each is a dog latch hook, and the other side is a cat.

And I have a large stock of counted cross stitches that are in progress. I made this unicorn as a kid, but also only framed it recently:

I made a wedding cross-sticth for my sister and her husband as a wedding present:

And more wedding cross-sticthes for my friend Margery and her husband and my friend Heidi and her husband as wedding presents:

And for my nephew Jordan, there is no frilly lace on this album for his actual birthday:
