Hi lovlies, I have been a busy bee crafting with my sister, Laura the past few days. We have tried a few new crafts recently and I have to say, I love them all. I was hoping to wittle down my craft selection and focus more on improving my skills but I just keep finding more things to experiment with! Here are some of the things we have tried...
first off, we tried some porcelain painting.
I absolutley love how pretty these look with such little effort.
As I do more of these, I feel that my coffee obsession will form a huge part of my cup themes!
Next, we tried felting, it's soooo much fun. Although dangerous...we both managed to stab ourselves several times with the needle. I also learnt how to do blanket stitch...I have wanted to learn this for ages and now I have, I can't believe how easy and cute it is!
oh and I just adore this little guy!! I want to make lots of little creatures. I just need a little more practice and some more imagination!
This ladybird was a tad hit and miss as I was making the pattern up as I went along, but I think he turned out ok!
and meet mr and mrs owl. The cutest newly weds...ever. They are just two of Laura's creations and I love them to pieces. They are made from the softest fabric and felting. Lovely!
Have you crafted in the New Year yet? What have you been making?
