Random Crafties Galore!

So I haven't stopped crafting while I've been away from the blog! This past weekend on there was an APC-athon! APCs are alot like ATCs except they are on playing cards and usually show a corner of the card so you know which card of the deck it is. People like collecting different themed decks and its alot of fun once you get into it! Here are some of the cards I made this past weekend! Let me know if you have any cards you'd like to trade, I'd love to add to my collection!

Here are some older APCs I made earlier during the summer:
All fabric and ribbon experiment

A pile of old cards! Anyone want to trade?

A few weeks ago I decided to try my hand at making a Dottee Doll. A Dottee Doll is a little plush doll that has a hanger and a tail and usually has a very stylized face. They are ONLY traded and never sold. I wanted to give it a try since I have so many fabric bits around that I can't seem to find a home for. I think this is a great scrap busting project, it's just time consuming! I had a little trouble figuring out how to sew the hanger on right but I think I'll get it better the second time. What do you think? Does anyone else out there make Dottee dolls or have any tips?

ALSO I started another scrap busting project! I decided to try and make a draft blocker with the swatches that I have to cut for people at work that come back or would otherwise just end up in the trash. I am trying to only use the upholstery weight fabrics (so its a bit warmer/sturdier) so it will probably take a little while for me to finish it. But! I do have a whole boot-shoebox full of these swatches to make something awesome with! Among all of my other salvaged fabric haha. I'll put pictures up of it once it actually starts to look like something!

Anyone else planning cozy winter crafts? Scrap busters? I'd love to know what you're up to :)
