Double-Dog Dare: Zippers + Block Prints

mel-gibson-in-braveheart_freedom from craft anxiety

I’ve never been one to back down from a challenge. But this whole making things thing is a bigger challenge than I could have ever imagined! But I’ve double-dog dared myself to keep going. When I’m down on my craft luck, I picture Mel Gibson’s William Wallace  rallying me to freedom, or to have the courage to sew a zipper…either way.

So, this week I’m continuing to battle with my fateful foe the zipper (for a laugh click over to my Pin FAIL zippered apron) and I’m going to work on creating prints with household objects. The ultimate goal is to create a little bag that contains both elements. Fingers crossed. Here are a few of the inspiration pins, should you wish to join me in this fight.

Blue face paint is completely optional. But highly encouraged!
