I decided to buy a pattern by Kerryanne from Shabby Art Boutique after seeing a post about her from Jenny of Elefantz. I just wanted to make a pin cushion angel so I went over and looked..........4 patterns latter I have made these.
Started out as a sheet of MDF from Bunnings. Had a quick lesson by hubby in how to use a jig saw (let me tell you I was a bit nervous about electricity, blades and fingers etc., but determined to do it myself) and here are the initial pieces cut out. Mr B cut out the first one to show me how it's done and I did the rest. He did tell me to slow down as I couldn't take the corners too well!
A good sand on the rough parts and a coat of paint on the edges and backs and they ready to be made into something beautiful.
Cover with lovely paper, apply a little colour around the edges.
They are still a bit wobbly around the edges but that's my first attempt..........just try and take that jig-saw off me now! LOL! I did actually stick the large rose on up-side-down!!!! That's why I am trying to hide it. I will take note of the direction next time!
And......the finished product. A lovely place to store my lace and ribbons. LOL! I will probably need to go back to Bunnings and buy a few more sheets of MDF to store all my lace! I also need to make a few of these as gifts and give-away for my stash box.
I felt quite satisfied yesterday. A bit of wood crafting, a bit of craft shopping and a bit of stitching and movie watching saw me have just a lovely day. I am going to cut out more today! There's no stopping me now!
I LOVE holidays.
