Tuesday Top Ten: Favorited Items January 1st-7th

It’s the first Top Ten of the year!  Things have slowed down a little bit over in my Etsy shop and I really need to get some new stuff listed but I’ve been concentrating on cleaning and reorganizing my studio and getting ready for Birka, which is just over two weeks away now.  Eep!

There were only nine items that were favorited this past week, so I’m going to add in the most viewed item as number 10.  Here we go!

I was wearing the orange and pink fleece boa scarf that matches my Animal hat and the woman cutting fabric for me at Jo-Ann asked me how I made it.  When I told her that each strip is individually cut and tied together she said that I must have a lot of patience!  Yes, they can be a little time-consuming to make, but I’m able to do them when I just need something to do with my hands but my concentration is elsewhere, like when I’m watching a movie or doing my radio show.

Also, I’m amused that two pieces of my wedding attire are in this week’s Top Ten.  I wore a Long Tu-Tu Tulle Skirt underneath my dress and the Rainbow Connection necklace.  I still need to get Rewondered dresses, ribbon veils, and Bow-quets up for sale!

Gratuitous wedding photo! See, long tu-tu and Rainbow Connection necklace. I’m holding the ribbons from our handfasting, rather than my Bow-quet though.

Speaking of getting things up for sale, I definitely need to get back to work.  Tons to do today before I go on the air for The Cape Radio at 4pm!

Five X Fifty: Day 13 – Fleece Fringe Boa Scarves

After making the Freaky Fleece Hats, I knew I would need to make scarves to go with them.  I saw a woman at one of the craft fairs wearing one that was just two strips of fleece fabric sewn together and cut every inch or so.  No attempt had been made to fluff it out or fancy it up, it just kind of sat there, looking unfinished.  I thought it was flat and boring and I knew I could do better!

My Fleece Fringe Boa Scarves are cut into individual strips and hand-tied together, so every single one is unique.  They measure approximately four and a half feet long, give or take an inch or two.  They can be made in any color combination with the colors in any order (though the hand-tied effect does jumble them together).  Perfect to wear to watch your favorite team play hockey or football!

My favorite team is the Oregon State Beavers, so I started off with one that’s orange and black.

One of these boas can be chosen as your free item for your $25 contribution to my IndieGoGo campaign.  And if you want to order one as a Christmas gift, please do so by December 18th (more FAQs about holiday orders here).

I have a bunch more Five X Fifty posts to get up this week (and all 50 actually planned out!) so keep an eye on this blog.  I’ll also be adding other items to my Etsy shop, such as the one of a kind necklaces and bracelets I removed to take to the craft fairs instead, and many more Simple Charm Necklaces and Earrings.  I really want to get as many items up before the 18th as I possibly can, so there will be plenty to choose from for you last minute shoppers! 🙂
