A scrap attack with a ‘quilt as you go’ exterior, free motioned on to wadding. The interior was just two pieces of folded fabric used to make the two pockets and a square of felt for the pin holder .
It was all sandwiched together right sides facing (with ribbon tie carefully pinned away from the sides) and once turned, top stitched to tidy.
Another craft ticked off the list.
a piece of driftwood, my hot fix tool and I have established that if we ever need a new house sign, this is do-able.
ideally I would have a thin tip to draw with but my method works:
sketch the the word or design with an erasable pen, I used a friction one. Make dots by tapping the hot tip along the traced lines and repeat so that the dots join up. I sealed the finished piece with mod pudge
This year’s sea glass stash was only reduced a little by these gifts. A simple ring and cuff links made from the flattest pieces I had to hand which were then glitzed up with hot fix rhinestones – the smallest I had to hand – and stuck with jewellry cement. Note to self: research better ‘glue’ to stick glass to metal.
Can you guess which one I bought and which I made?
