Latest Creations

Things have been pretty chaotic lately, with the long weekend and then having no power in our house for 3 days, so there hasn’t been a lot of crafting time. But I have managed to make a few things, and I have decided I really like hand sewing, it’s easy to do in front of the TV, and its therapeutic.

placematsfinished These are the completed placemats and coasters that I was altering last week. None of them sold at the market, but that's ok, because I plan to try to sell them on Felt when I get around to joining.

socksofties These are a couple of sock softies I made, the stripy one is a chicken and the other one was meant to be a cat or a rabbit, but my daughter thinks it looks like Totoro (a character in one of her movies) so that’s what she calls it.

P4090454This is another chicken, which hasn’t got a face yet because I haven’t got another triangle button so I am still trying to figure out how to make a beak.

tatteredroses  These are “tattered fabric roses” made using the tutorial here. The ones in the bottom corner have been glued to pegs and will be made into magnetic note holders for the fridge. The rest are probably destined to be brooches and embellishments for clothes.

shelffull This is the shelf in our lounge, which I have been trying to redecorate for a while now. So yesterday I finally finished it and we are pretty happy with how it looks. The background for the top 2 shelves are canvas boards that I “painted” with a teabag then glued on some images that I printed from the computer. Most of the images I used were from The Graphics Fairy.

shelfclose This is a close-up of the top shelves. As you can see I LOVE buttons. They make a great “filler” in decorating just about anything.

Last night I bought home more junque to be transformed, so will be posting about that soon, watch this space……
