Ever since I started designing patterns a few months ago, I haven't really had much time to work on my own projects. Leisure projects. I don't really mind much, since I'm crafting a lot as a designer and getting cool decor items for my home out of it. However, sometimes I paw through my patterns and kind of long for the days of working with other people's patterns.
Back in June, I started a cool plastic canvas haunted house. It's a pretty big project, so I figured I needed that long to get it done before October. But then I got distracted with this new designing endeavor, and I set the house aside. I figured I'd get it done sometime.
Well, October hit me in the face yesterday and reminded me that I hadn't finished the house yet! So I picked up the needle on Friday and managed to get it all done by Saturday afternoon. Here's my cool new house!
It was a fun pattern to make! I didn't even add all the critters to the house; it already seemed really crowded. The pattern had some mistakes in it, but that's not such a big deal now that I have some experience designing.
Now I just need to find a place for this thing. It's so big!
What are you guys working on these days? Are you busy making X-mas presents, or are you making cute things for your home?
