I've also been doing a bit of crafting myself. I finished up this pirate hat that had been laying around half done for a month. The hat was thrifted and then I added the ribbon and trim. The feathers are either from a craft store, thrifted, or bought from a lady I know who has peacocks on her farm. she collects the dropped feathers and sends them on to me!
My other project has been a bellydance hip scarf, made from some of the lovely doiles and laces I have laying around. Here's an in progress teaser shot. I thrifted a brocade sash belt with lovely beaded embroidery on the ends. Then I'm adding the crochet lace dresser scarf as the base, and the drapery fringe was rescued from an ugly thrifted drapery. Still cheaper to buy the drapery than to buy the fringe at a fabric store! I have to add lots of shiny jingles but eventually it will be showing up in the Etsy shop as well!
