Cats and Dragons
I have been working on this bag for my best friend's husband for MONTHS. I started it a few weeks before Ben's birthday in febuary but my workspace flooded and after that I had to work on the DAC sofa and when I finished that I was busy on a gazillion other things but I finally managed to finish it and got to give it to him on Mirjam's birthday, this tuesday. It's a bag for him to carry his white board in to his nerdy parties. The dragon is Tiamat from the animated Dungeons and Dragons tv-series!
I also made my best friend Mirjam this handpainted dress. The dress is thrifted and I painted her cat Chalo and a Small Tortoiseshell butterfly on it. These pictures don't do it much justice, I will post some pictures of Mirjam's birthday later so you can see the dress in action!
They both really liked the presents which obviously made me very very happy. I get so anxious when giving homemade gifts! All shaky and sweaty haha! It's crazy! I'm working on another gift at this very moment but I can't share it with you just yet, I'm still in the shaky and sweaty process of the thing. Later!
