Made by You Mondays: Cards, Yarn & Stuff

I've been working on a few things, lately: I just finished a bag, made from a vintage napkin, a fabric remnant, vintage hardware, ribbon, chain, seed beads & embroidery, photos to come...
I made this great little cuff of orange & blue & I'm working on more things (wallets, headbands & more cuff bracelets) in these colors. I'm really loving this color combination :) Are cuffs considered accessories or jewelry? Hmm...
Cotton yarn, blue button closure (the mannequin has a line across her wrist, so I covered it with a vintage scarf)  samsstuff Etsy


















I've also been working on these hand embroidered photo cards, part paper, part photo print & part embroidery. I'm thinking of making them into journals, with handmade paper from zuzu2u, one of a couple of collaborations with this fun shop on Etsy. She makes great handmade paper that will go really well with many of the things I have in shellseye, I can't wait to see what she's come up with for me! Here is one of the cards that I've been working on for the journals:
Hand embroidered, "Bells" image, purple & red paper, sheer sparkle fabric















So, these are a few of the things I've been working on. How about you? Have you been working on anything, lately? Check out other great projects here, on Skip to My Lou's Made by You Mondays:

I agree with Funkytime, orange is summery and is the symbol for revitalization. Great project and post. Really like your background on the blog as well. Here's to an inspiring week! ~stephey

I always love to see what you've been working on. Your creations are always so interesting and inspiring!

I just finished a some bathroom hooks I made with an old piece of wood. I have another piece of wood that is similar to the one I used and that I've already clean and sealed, but haven't decided what to do with it yet...
