UFO Friday

UFO Friday is my (usually) bi-weekly series where I show you what projects I’ve been working on (UFO standing for UnFinished Objects) in a fairly non-polished way. For more of these, look here and for every other week’s feature, Finished Things Saturday, look here.

UFO Friday DIY | Hedgefairy https://hedgefairy.wordpress.comThe last week has been really cold, and the whole year so far has been windy. Scoundrel bikes to work every day, no matter the weather so he asked me to make the sleeves of his fantastic heavy wool coat a bit longer with fabric he bought. I might have had to improvise for pinning, though. As I always claim, all my old tins do come in handy at some point.

They are fantastic scrap busters because they are actually useful. I tend to get through four or five per session when we call it an early night.

UFO Friday DIY | Hedgefairy https://hedgefairy.wordpress.comAnd last but not least this week is this, a project for which several pieces have been around since Summer. I made the skull design back then but never got around transferring it to fabric but I finally managed to do just that. The final result is yet to be assembled, though.

UFO Friday DIY | Hedgefairy https://hedgefairy.wordpress.comWhat have you been crafting lately? I’d love to read about it in the comments!

Have a lovely weekend!

I’ve worked on several things since the year started but of course I didn’t remember to take pictures of all of them. The above is a projects I’m also filming a tutorial for, yet the first attempt I kinda wrecked so… I’m doing that one again.

I found this cute satchel at the thrift store a few weeks ago. Originally designed with a shoulder strap it was definitely too small for me to wear it as such – It fits my phone, my wallet and maybe my keys – so I decided to re-work the straps. Four rivets and a bit of hammering later I had this cute and very everyday adventurer-compatible belt pouch.

And last but not least I finally invested in a new pair of fabric scissors. The days of making do with household scissors are finally over again. I think about hanging my inherited old blunt pair somewhere as decoration because I like them so much but that’s just theory for now.

Have a great weekend!

UFO Friday: The Moving Edition

aka. The Moving Edition

UFO Friday is my (usually) bi-weekly series where I show you what projects I’ve been working on (UFO standing for UnFinished Objects). For more of these, look here and for every other week’s feature, Finished Things Saturday, look here.

UFO Friday: The Moving Edition | Hedgefairy https://hedgefairy.wordpress.comWe’re there. All of our stuff is upstairs, and Scoundrel’s room is almost completely done. I’m already getting used to climbing all those stairs instead of just turning left right after I enter the house. The kitchen is a bit more Hedge-sized because we put all our shelves a little lower than at the previous flat.

UFO Friday: The Moving Edition | Hedgefairy https://hedgefairy.wordpress.comAs for my room, well, at least all my furniture is in place. I keep holding back with decorations until I have found a place for everything else so I can take a deep breath before I make the space finally mine, really mine.

UFO Friday: The Moving Edition | Hedgefairy https://hedgefairy.wordpress.comI’ve been painting old crates from work for a low shelf on my balcony with wax glaze I still had in my stash to protect them from the weather, and I also worked with chalk paint for the first time painting the doors of the linen closet I keep my fabrics in. The living room is still a horrible mess, though, and I hope I can get a hold of the chaos sooner rather than later.

UFO Friday: The Moving Edition | Hedgefairy https://hedgefairy.wordpress.comI definitely want to show more of the decorating progress this time, I never even got around making a room tour at the old flat! There are so many more projects that I plan for around here and I can’t wait to tell you about them.

Have the most wonderful weekend!

Weirdly I feel like there hasn’t been much going on in the crafting department but that isn’t actually true. I just didn’t take any pictures, I guess.

UFO Friday | Hedgefairy https://hedgefairy.wordpress.comI spent two Pathfinder sessions sorting through my fabric leftovers, ripping them into strips and then making them into fabric yarn – some of the balls aren’t finished yet and wait for more scraps in the right colours, some are already quite large. I like this scrapbuster a lot although I’m not sure what to do with the results once I’m all set with gift wrapping cords for the next ten years…

UFO Friday | Hedgefairy https://hedgefairy.wordpress.comI’ve also sewn a trivet out of leftovers, for my teapot in the kitchen, our table is weirdly sensitive to getting wet over a longer amount of time (it gets sticky, and I need to re-seal it). I’ll show you the result sometime soon!

UFO Friday | Hedgefairy https://hedgefairy.wordpress.comLast but not least I’ve been planning for a new project but you’ll only get a teaser picture for now, taken from my game of Yonder – The Cloud Catcher Chronicles… and I won’t even tell you about it. Yet.

UFO Friday: Boulangerie-Pâtisserie Aperture | HedgefairyI haven’t written one of these in what feels like ages! Above you can see my latest endeavour in label design, basically, for a bread bag I’m working on. It’s almost done so look out for it during the next few weeks!

UFO Friday: Drying Beets | HedgefairyI got several kilos of beet roots from work during the last weeks and after giving away ¾ of them to friends and co-workers I decided to dry the rest. I have been wanting to experiment with beet root powder anyway!

UFO Friday: Drying Beets | HedgefairyI also made one tray of bigger slices with sugar and cinnamon (we keep a mixture ready in our kitchen for apple-cinnamon loaf). Scoundrel happens to actually  like them even though they were a really random experiment.

UFO Friday | HedgefairyI’m also working on a new floofy, frilly pettiskirt – something I’ll be able to wear as a petticoat as well as on its own if I happen to feel pink and sparkly. This is the thrifted lining fabric I happened to find quite a while ago.

UFO Friday | HedgefairyAnd last but unspectacular not least is this foam pad/bolster thingy. It used to be the back of my Mum’s sleep sofa that has long been sent off to wherever it is that really old but not so fancy sofas go. I use it as a headboard for my bed but I really dislike the fabric – it just doesn’t match the rest of my decor. I’m currently covering it with a quilt which looks really nice but I want a cover I can change it to once in a while, so that’s definitely on my project list at the moment. I even cut the fabric already!

What have you been working on lately? And of course: Have a wonderful weekend!

As always I’ve been doing quite some darning. Keeping my clothes wearable is one of my favourite things to do – and I even like it when it’s visible that they’ve been worn, torn and mended a few times.

With my work pants I’ve established the habit that they all get a secondary colour for mending. My black work pants have a yellow back pocket, and my tan ones get green. The pockets were in no real condition to put anything in there anymore so I finally replaced them with some secondhand placemat fabric.

Of course I’m crafting for ConQuest like a madwoman. My most current project were these small pennants to mark which of the sleeping tents are ours. The stencils came out a little bit messier than I would have liked them to be but overall I’m really pleased about the final result.

Gotta stop typing now, I’m being tickled and somebody’s trying to hit random keys as I write. I love my friends. ^^
