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.
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.
Over the past few days I’ve been creating these lovely detailed brooches, altogether 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.
I will definitely be making more of these because they are so cute!
