When I went to hospital recently I realised I really needed a bag for my slippers as I could only put them in a plastic bag and it's just not right when I have been making draw string bags for most of my life for one thing or another.
I have this fabric in a few different colour ways and there was one with umbrellas on it in the pale blue. The colour is rather brighter than in the photos and is very cute! I can see a few more projects from this range.
I have enough to share and will have a give away shortly.
The new Tilda book was beckoning to me to make something from it and I decided to make a Cup-Cake Fairy. I had been stocking up on Tilda goodies as we now have a distributor Two Green Zebras in Australia and they have been very helpful in providing stockist locations so I could
satisfy my need for a Tilda stash fill my order. I couldn't find any light blue beads in my stash but found some lovely brads in my scrap-booking supplies and they were a great match and easy to attach! I also didn't put the wings on her....maybe on the next one! Not really happy with the hair but practice can only make me better so I see a few more coming up.
This one is for you Aunt Pitty Pat! LOL She told me she has some Tilda books and has not make anything from them! Well I hope this inspires you LOL. I must admit I have quite a few craft books that I have not made anything out of.......................but............................while there is life in this body I guess no book is safe.
I do have "Tilda's Christmas Ideas"and she has some very cute Santas, Pixies and Snowmen, that I am just itching to make. I try to make a new decoration every year so that I can slowly replace all of the store brought Christmas things with home made things and now with more Tilda's fabric and accessories available in Australia I can choose any project from the books that I like!
Well it's off to the scrap-booking bench in the craft room to make some Christmas Cards as before we know it it will be time to start sending them out to family and friends.
