In the last post you saw the fun Craft-it-Forward apron that made it’s way to Lisa (visit this post confused by what Craft-it-Forward is all about). Today’s post picks up with participant #2’s crafty treat.
Becky is a fun internet friend I “met” while planning our wedding, and she and her mister will tie the knot in a few weeks. After glancing over Becky’s blog it is apparent she is a fan of sunflowers…so I decided she needed something with a sunflower on it and intended to make her an apron with a sunflower pin as well. Until… I was watching Glee one evening and had a fun idea for her based on my girl Emma’s necklace.
So I decided to attempt to create something similar for Becky, and set off to several local thrift stores in search of the perfect flower. I found something similar and then posed the following question to her via twitter, “Painted or Gold”…she choose painted and so I painted the gold-tone brooch to be the bright colors of a sunflower. I then paired the sunflower brooch with three strands of green glass beads to get this:
And finally to help get her started on her own Craft-it-Forward projects I included a little bag of crafty items from my ever growing stash:
I had a blast putting together these two fun Craft-it-Forward packages and I hope they enjoyed receiving them. Now, tell me…am I the only person obsessed with Emma on Glee? I wish whoever styles her character would come make-over my wardrobe! Want your own Emma inspired necklace? Check back next week for the opening of the Dill Pickle Picnic Shop!!
Oh…and congrats to Becky & her mister as they spend the next few weeks wrapping up their wedding plans and celebrating their marriage!
So gorgeous! I love that wildly intense shade of green, and the sunflower is perfect.
Love it! Saw it when Becky got it and saw it on Craftgawker. And what is this about a shop?!? Excited!
