Bev is the queen of Anthro knock offs. THE QUEEN! Not only does she use items she sees for inspiration, but usually they look better! Back in April, she led one of the groups at Creative Estates through a necklace project. I sat and watched Cindy (skip to my lou) since my brain was overwhelmed and because you had to use a needle, thread and really little beads. I didn’t want to expose this group of lovely women to a “throw myself on the ground” kind of fit from a grown woman. And I have been known to curse when a craft doesn’t go my way. Nothing too horrible, but just a little habit I inherited from my mother back in her sewing days. Anywhoooo…………
us them make this necklace. I loved it when it was done and actually regretted not making it. The tutorial on her blog is really really good if you think you’d like to give it whirl.On her blog, she has all her tutorials in categories so you can find things easily.
I was lost in her jewelry section for a while. I am LOVING this necklace and even though she shows a very detailed tutorial, there is NO way I would attempt this. But I’d let someone else make it for me. Let’s just say she’s way better with her hands than me. And she probably doesn’t throw fits.
Now this project is right up my alley! I can do this! Cardboard, glue and silverware! Love it! This photo looks straight out of a magazine! Doesn’t this look good on the wall? A great conversation piece.
More anthro knock offs. Once again, she shows her patience by embroidering the “recipes” part. Couldn’t you just use a sharpie? Or maybe some iron transfer material? Now we’re talking my language. No needles involved. Of course she has a full tutorial. Pretty cute!Showing off more of her needle skills, she made this Kitchen towel. No short cuts for this girl. All great projects that I know you’ll love.
Bev was such a sweetie at Creative Estates. I don’t think I ever saw her NOT smiling. I really enjoyed meeting her and I was able to chat more when I forced my way in her car for a ride to the airport. I even called SHOT GUN! (sorry Holly and Ordy & Joon) I know she would be tickled pink (flamingo pink) if you left her a sweet comment letting her know you found her on TCB. Surprise her! Flamingo Toes!
