Mascot Cameo

Not entirely related to Chasing The Frill, but I'm working on a cameo of the mascot in my sculpture class. I didn't have a reference when I was making him, so that's why he doesn't really match up to the original...but you still get the idea, right?
Right now he's just wax, but eventually he'll be in bronze. I'm really excited, since I volunteered my piece to be the example for gating [setting up the wax to make a mold], so I'll likely be the first to finish the project this way x3


He needs a name.

I like posting in the middle of the night! And I think I might just do it more often, because being patient and waiting until morning to post my late night accomplishments is so hard to do...
Anyway, I present to you my latest bunny muffler:

He's currently nameless, and still eyeless. I need nice buttons...

And of course, MORE BOWS! Because I love making them. And a bunny, because I could.

Found some left over fuzzy purple yarn, just enough to make two bows with. Also got some left over paper stars from a friend. They're super sturdy, being coated quite a few times and all. I wish I'd gotten more from her though, but as I said, left overs [she makes bracelets, they're really nice]. I thought they'd make a nice touch to dangle from the bows.

New Listings

Round candy, pink bow with white accents, and sparkly white have been added to the shop.
You can see them on the side, or you could actually look at them here. ;3

I found my circular needles today. But as to whether or not they play a part in expanding Chasing the Frill's products is still to be decided as I've never actually used them. We'll see though.

Just some photos of the bows on my pillowcase. Current stock.

This could possibly be the bow from the other posts. I have no idea anymore. Either way, it's frilly and on a phone strap with a lobster clasp, so just the bow itself could be clipped to things. And because it's too big to loop the strap over to put it on something.

My boyfriend's DSi promoting CtF. It's the same blue bow as the other post, but with an added rhinestone for a hint of glamor. I told him to show everyone. ;3

Fancy photos with a fancy camera will be taking product photos today. There will be updates to the shop today too, hopefully. ;D

More Bows! YAY!

Better photo of the bow I made before [in the middle]. Made a larger one. It'll likely end up on a headband or sold as is maybe. I think they'd look really cute pinned to a jacket or cardigan though, now that I think about it. Could easily work as a necklace...HMM...either way, I like making them.

crochet bow

Future frills. A crocheted bow with scalloped edges. Could end up as a: necklace, brooch, hair clip, or headband. Or a two-way clip or whatever. Depends on what I can get a hold of. Either way, this is the first of many. I've still got lots of white yarn left over from Charity.
