It begins here.

So, if you read my last blog post you will know that I’m going to post an entry at least once a week. It begins here!

In the last couple of years my creative flow has been mainly drawn to crafts involving wool such as crochet, knitting and felting. Recently this has changed, I  have now started to make appliqued fabric cards. It all began in March when I was looking for inspiration to make my mum a birthday card on Pinterest. I then started creating and designing my own cards with the help of my new love..Bondaweb! These cards are perfect for using up scraps of fabric and they look great too. I then had the idea of making pictures to frame, but I’ll talk about them another time. Hopefully, when I make some more of these I’ll be able to put them up for sale in my Etsy shop.DSC00147[1]DSC00146[1]

Happy sewing!

Pin Cushion Sewing Jars

I’ve recently been making some pin cushion sewing jars which I think are perfect for carrying around with you, wherever you go.

Each jar is made with a lot of care and detail, I can spend ages deciding which colour ribbons go with which fabric, I’m so fussy. Every jar is unique making them quite intriguing, a perfect gift!

I made a variety of jars of all different sizes and patterns, I’m so pleased with the way they look. I can’t stop making them!

The jars in the picture are some of the smallest ones I’ve made, the biggest jars each have a pair of scissors and a tin to keep thread in, they range from £4-£6 which I think is fairly reasonable. I hope you like them.

Sew many brooches!

Over the past few days I’ve been creating these lovely detailed brooches, altogethe2014-09-11 16.22.02r there’s 29 of the little feathered (well, not really feathered) friends! I’ve fallen in love with making them, I put my music on and off I sew. I make them in a batch as it’s much quicker than making them one by one. I just hope other people get as much enjoyment from wearing them as I did from making them.

Each bird is unique and each has its own little personality, they look great attached to a plain top or cardigan and add a fun look to any outfit. I now need to find a craft market or something similar to sell them at. 2014-09-11 16.22.18

I will definitely be making more of these because they are so cute!
