Covering a lampshade

I've not done this before so praying it dries well. Started with a paper template, cut out material, spray adhesive on the old shade. I then hot glued on the braid. This was then mod podged to glue and protect it. We will see if it did in a few hours.

Felt necklace done!

It's threaded and done. Definitely going to make more. I have some lovely coloured waxed cotton to use now. Wore it today. It's very comfy, not too heavy but long enough as it was made to measure.

Bum bag alternative

I find the ones i have quite uncomfortable and not that pretty.  So I decided to make a multi pocketed cute one. Going to be happy putting my phone and purse in it!

Card making factory

A photographer friend is having a stall at a fair so I'm on chopping (or wet tearing ) duty.

Her shots go onto contrast card.

Just waiting for them to dry before assembly.

The basket filled and a view of the cover.

It looks so cosy in there!

Lined basket

I have bits of work sat in little bags all over so have decided to make them a proper home. It's got a little cover that is made from hexies.

The bottom is a stained panel from a skirt so no use for any other project and the sides are from an old sarong. It could have been slightly bigger to fit better but once filled will be just fine.

It will nice to have something so pretty yet functional to use.

Baby blanket

My neice has had a little girl, guess the name. Happy with the result but I am never appliqueing on such stretchy fleece again.
