Living Room Updates

This weekend, I’ve been making a few things for the living room.

The main thing is the fireplace.

The stone effect is done with hot glue, and the ash around the fire is dry-brushed on.

The old couch also got arms, as I felt it looked a little strange without them.

The fireplace makes the living room really nice and toasty when it’s lit. Adds an extra layer of coziness to a particularly chilly winter night.

Anyways, see ya!

Leather Satchel

I see a lot of really nice satchels when I’m out and about, and this last week I took extra notice of them so I could make a miniature one from leather.

It fits quite a lot in it… perhaps it’s bigger on the inside?

I love how this stitching on the strap implies that it’s been used for a long time.

Of course, it could be used¬†outside of Hogwarts, but I do think it looks classy over school robes. It’s entirely hand-sewn, and the buckle was sewn on after I finished assembling it. It looks very artisan, I’m really happy with it.

Anyways, see ya!

Project Roundup

Miniature Three Broomsticks shop for the coffee cups from forever ago: going well! I have a corner room that’s made of some old calendars.

Fireplace for Sarah’s living room: The hot glue stone effect is finished, it just needs painting. I’m not entirely sure what to do about the cardboard edges, however.

Latest colouring page: looking very pleasing to the eye!

Anyways, see ya!

Finished Pineapple Shawl

The shawl I was nearly finished last Project Roundup is now finished!

You can see the pineapple edging here, the fruit is in between the leaves.

The yarn has sequins in it, and they really do sparkle under lights!

You can see it drapes wonderfully.

I’ve worn it out once, and received a lot of compliments, with people exclaiming “Wow! You¬†made that?!” quite a bit. I’m really happy with my first handmade large item of clothing. I’ll definitely make more clothes, but maybe not for a while. I’ll stick to small stuff for a bit!

Anyways, see ya!
