Sisters Share It All: Pinterest Challenge Wrap Up (Part 4)

Tuesday, April 2, 2013

And here we are with our last check in on the Pinterest Challenge!  I was a little more prepared this time, and got my last 3 projects whipped out! It has been so fun seeing many of your project reports in the last few weeks!  
1.  Hand painted Sewing accessories jars.  The painting was a little spotty... I used the Martha Stewart glass paint, but had a really hard time getting it to go on smoothly with a brush.  I should have sprayed it on, but in the end, I gave up and painted it with craft paint and finished it with the Martha Stewart satin finish.  I ended up being very please with this project, mostly because it eliminated the pile of scissors, thread and pins sitting on my windowsill!  Now it looks lovely and organized!  I might add a skinny glass pencil holder when I get around to it...

 3.  Snail-print peplum shirt:  This was, by far, my most intimidating and time consuming project.  I loosely patterned it based off of a shirt that I own, but made up all the peplum/pleat patterns, as well as the sleeve.  Overall, it was very fun to make, although a little frustrating in some parts!  I love how bright and summery it turned out!  I can't wait to wear it!
