The last week I have taken to trying a few different crafts, although I should really get on with my day job of bookeeping, however doing crafts is so much more interesting!! I tried my hand at some basic jewellery making, a lovely friend showed me the ropes, she had so many beads to choose from it was overwhelming!
I made a lovely bracelet for myself, a bookmark for my daughter and a bag charm for my son, they loved their gifts!
I finally got a chance to sew my little New Zealand themed cushion, it is my own design which I got printed from Spoonflower. It is a simple zip at the bottom style cushion, very easy to make.
This is the reverse of my New Zealand cushion. I still have a UK and USA one to get done, which I hope to do very soon.
I wanted to make some felt hearts for a friend so I got out the red wool and needle felted it into shape. For the large heart, I did use a cookie cutter to get the shape right, but the smaller heart I just moulded into shape and then needle felted it. I do enjoy needle felting so I think I will experiment with colours and shapes more.
And finally, this scented loveheart was made a little while ago but I thought I would share it with you as it makes me smile!
I am hoping my fabric design samples come in next week, I have made a fabric design from my 4 year old painting and have ordered a silk fat quarter so hoping it prints nicely, the colours look great on screen.
