In an earlier post, I showed off how I made miniature spider plants for my friend for Christmas 2020. Along with spider plants I also made a few ferns, a monstera plant, and two miniature ivy topiary plants. The process for making the pots was the same (though some I painted differently) so this will just be a quick show-off post.
I realized when I was about to post about the miniature paper plants I’d made for @CanadianFashionDoll ‘s 2020 Christmas gift, that I’d never blogged about her 2019 gift!
With money in 2020 being so tight, and already having a bunch of these cut out from my time back when the Maker Studio was up and running (it shut down at the beginning of covid and has never re-opened) I decided to make MORE of these paper plants for her in 2020, as I did in 2019.
In 2019, I made her a fern and a spider plant in little faux bronze pots.
In 2020 I made two ferns, a monstera plant, another spider plant, and two miniature ivy topiary plants in little white pots with bronze trim.
The way I did the pots and the “potting” of the plants differed between the two years, so I’ll talk a little bit about that here.
You might remember for 2019 I gave my friend @CanadianFashionDoll a few different doll miniatures that I made for her. These included:
- A wooden Asian-inspired display stand
- 3D scanned and printed necklace and bracelet displays
- 2-shelf side tables
- Clover display stands
- Triangle table
If you followed me on Instagram there were also some other things there that I realize I never published either!
For 2020 I made a few more things as well, that I’m looking forward to sharing with you!
After making so many different Courtesy Masks, I finally got the time to clean up my sewing space a little, and that really pushed me to finish up some of the “UFO”s (Unfinished Objects) in my sewing room, including this pink PVC hobble skirt.
My friend Skye had a birthday recently, and when I was up in Edmonton at Marshall’s Fabrics I found this super-cool fabric. It has a series of old-school classic movie monsters; the Mummy, a Vampire, Frankenstein’s Monster, and a Werewolf – such fun! She’s a big fan of horror movies, and I thought this would make a good fabric for a gift.
