Onch’s “Eat it all!” Launch Party

So last week, Hairy and I darted down to L.A. to celebrate Onch’s launch party at House of Petro Zillia, a super adorable boutique! Onch and I collabed on some cute hair pieces. I snapped photos of our hair bows, but I finished and shipped the rainbow pretzel head bands so quickly that I never got a photo of them. You can catch them in my video below though! The event was cute, sweet, and delicious, filled with candy for your eyes and your tummy!

As always, I decided to make an outfit at the last minute. I was going to make a top and then wear a floofy skirt or bloomers on the bottom, but Manda insisted on making me something, so I put her to work making me a giant pink princess tutu!!! We stayed up all night and then napped for a few hours in the late morning.

Unfortch, due to the extra last minute nature of this project, I never really put everything on until right before the party….and everything was a little bit big!! I was kind of like this sad saggy melting ice cream monster! HAHA Oh well. Now I need figure out how to repurpose the banana split into another project, because the tank top just reeeeally wasn’t working!


Bebe, Laura/Pretty Star Clothing, Jessie Jae Joplin (I stole the pic from her awesome array of photos), me, and Chrissa.


Me and Twinkle. How cute is she? I also stole this pic from her.


Me and Michelle. Sometimes I wrinkle my nose when I hear something funny. This is not an attractive habit.


Here’s Bebe, Laura, and me again!


Me and Onch. I didn’t want to bother him while he whirled his magic around the place all night, so I finally caught him on our way out!


Here’s us sitting next to our collab!

CAANDY!!!!!!!!!!!! (not pictured was the pile of Twinkies and HoHo’s and DingDongs and stuff!)

Here’s my lil video! Sorry about the crap quality!

Here’s some progress pics and closeups of the hair bows!



I really loved working with these saturated candy colors. Look out for more candy craziness in my Etsy shop soon!

    everything is so cuteee!!!! haha what cute dance is everyone doing?

    One of these days I’m going to figure out how to teleport so I can go to every single event ever! ๐Ÿ˜€ It looked so fun!

    • Onch had a few people learn a dance to create a dance-flash-mob for the event!! I did not make time to learn it though, plus, I am a terrible dancer and would have never remembered the whole thing! It went on past what I recorded ๐Ÿ™‚

      I want to teleport, too!! I missed the q-popo opening!

    I think MI is in the dark ages or maybe it’s just me… I never knew things like this existed! I wish I could get my brain around how to crochet things I can think up in my head… I’m only 1 yr into crocheting so I think I’m a way from being able to make things I think of!

    • Just break down your ideas in to basic shapes! And just practice making square and circles and triangles and stuff ๐Ÿ™‚

    Nobody notices that your top was too big. That banana split tank is rad! Love the new candy bows too!

    • Thanks, June!
      I really want to figure out another project to stick the ice creams on…. a purse? a pre-made sweater!? Not sure!

    Hi Twinkie, I just recently found your blog through Ocean Beach Bulletin. Finished reading everything on your blog last night! Really enjoyed it! Love all your creations! But I think I am a bit too late coz can’t really find a lot of your items on Etsy and other sites anymore. ๐Ÿ™ Do you still make tissue & coffee cup cozies, zipper pouch & scarflet that I saw on your flickr? Btw, love your banana split top! Very creative! ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi, Stephanie! thanks for checking everything out!

      You are not too late. My items just sell out pretty quickly when I post them to my Etsy shop, but we are gearing up for a new update hopefully next Monday or Tuesday ๐Ÿ™‚

    and the top is adorable! I love it

    • My friend says we can make our cities cute…we just have to organize the events and get it going!

      • Anastacia

        says:

        That might be something fun to do, and even if it’s just on campus it would make a fun event on the calendar! Itd give me an excuse to make lots of cute stuff

    • Hi Twinkle!!!

      I have no immediately plans as of yet to go back down, but I know that something will draw me there sooner rather than later. Always happens!!

    hey Twinkie!!
    i Discovered you a few weeks ago and instantly fell inlove with your fun personality and your work. i bought your book in the same day, and cant wait for it to come in!!! ive been learning to crochet, buuut my work is very loose and rather ugly because of that, i was wondering if you could please tell me why and ho to fix that ๐Ÿ™‚ thank you very much.
    Love Nadine.

    • Well, if you are a beginner, it’s probably really GOOD that your work is loose. It will help you get your hook where it needs to go, while you get the hang of everything. Eventually when you feel more comfortable, you’ll be able to tighten up your work. You could also try working with a smaller hook, but don’t go too small, or it won’t pick the yarn easily. Good luck! ๐Ÿ™‚

    says:

    Looking at all the colorful yarn makes me happy. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • It makes me want to buy more! But I’m really trying to stash bust this year!

      • Duong

        says:

        I’m wondering where you bought these colorful skeins of yarn? I’m a yarn hoarder, the more yarn the better! ๐Ÿ˜›

        • The brand is Cascade 220 and I get it at my local yarn shop, or online.
