|Water bottle applique|
Last night I finished my Zakka Style water bottle holder for the sew along. It was a bit confusing to follow the written directions and I'm not actually sure if it ended up the way it was supposed to, but I did learn a new skill along the way at least.
I'm not entirely sure how sturdy it's going to end up being long term, it's probably going to be fine but I like to worry! If I make another one I think I'll put some batting in between the bottom layers and quilt it in so it has a more stable base to sit on.
For the applique and short strap I used Valori Wells cocoon in sapphire cashmere, and for the upper body of the holder and the long strap I used Rhapsodia Frida's dream in cool. (Really I never know if I'm getting the names arranged right!)
My button jar isn't exactly overflowing, and I didn't have any buttons at hand that matched, I'll have to be on the lookout for replacements soon so it's a bit prettier.
|sorrowful misuse of lovely ice cream|
There was too much ice cream for one container, so I divided it in two - my husband had some leftover Nerd candy, and some Candy Brain Juice (sour apple liquid the color of gore) and wanted to add it, so I was VERY glad to be able to divide the batch.
I am perfectly pleased with my Strawberry Thyme ice cream staying au naturel, TYVM!
|I admit, the brain liquid did add a pretty color!|
