I sew. My sister knits. We work in the same building, so we usually grab a quick lunch and then head to one of our favorite craft stores to get some exercise. Ok … shop. I look for beads, lace, fabric, etc., and she looks at yarn.
For the last couple of years, she has volunteered to go with me to the GAW Barbie Convention. So this past year, I told her she should make something for Barbie to sell out of our room. She started knitting these adorable throw blankets. One happened to end up in my box after convention and I just love how it drapes on the furniture and adds that something extra to my dioramas.
Now, we’re making them available in my Etsy shop. There are a variety of colors, sizes, and patterns to choose from. Check them out!
I’ve been crafting again today! I found some new findings that — combined with washi paper and tassles — make the cutest fans for Barbie and friends. Take note of the super cute cat and goldfish fans! Available now in my Etsy shop.
Last post of furniture today. Two more pewter chairs that have been repainted and recovered. Can be purchased individually or as a set.
I felt like doing some crafting this morning. I started out making some more magnetic brooches to go with my fashions. But once I got gluing, I couldn’t stop. So I decided to make some Japanese fans for Barbie and friends from leftover scraps of washi paper and assorted findings. They are now posted in my Etsy shop.
If you’ve been eyeing something in my shop, I’ve got good news for you. Everything at HankieChic.Etsy.com will be on sale this weekend, plus free shipping on orders over $35. The sale starts tomorrow. Have fun shopping!
I just finished refurbishing two pewter pincushion chairs for Barbie and friends. Both chairs have been painted in linen acrylic chalk paint and then sealed with polyacrylic sealer. Chair cushions have been recovered in pink silk jacquard. Available now individually or as a set in my Etsy shop.
