These are stitch markers I made for a swap I got the bottle caps for free from the old fashion soda store at the Mall I put holes in the caps with an Awl and glued buttons to the inside. The buttons I got a year and a half ago 24 for 99 cents. plus shipping. I broke the shanks off the buttons first. I wanted to fill the caps with resin but they seem so heavy when they are. And heavy stitch counters didn't seem like a good plan, so I Just left them as is. I may make more of them as charms but with the resin for Christmas.
This is a wet bag. Not that it is wet mind you.
It is for wet dish towels and dish rags It is lined with more of that Air mattress that you have seen me use here before. I make dish clothes and so when they need washing I don't have them sitting some wear getting moldy. then when I go down stairs to wash I just grab them all at once. We pull the wash clothes from the bath room and put them in here too.
This is a wristlet I made. I used the design of the fabric as the pattern for the beading. It is a day of the dead fabric. I made it for a 44 cent swap. I had the Fabric left over from another project and I always have beads and ribbon on had. I used Velcro for the closer.

In my years alive I have found that creatively the things I want to create my visions don't exist. I need to have more money at my disposal so I can create the things I want so that I can make the things in my brain.I also need a store to sell the finished things. Which is a goal I have in life. But this is still a ways away, from today but closer then it was yesterday.
