New Christmas Dec!!!

So continuing my new found love of Felt, as the most diverse craft material i have made yet nother Christmas Decorartion,

Although this looks quite complicated it is made for 6 5x5cm squares of felt and a small bit of ribbon...

check out this link for instructions...

Apologise for not being in English and for the random music, but this is the best video i have found which clearly shows you what to can make them from white paper, wrapping paper, brown paper, felt, card...basically anything flat which will hold it's shape quite well and you can either sew or staple or tape the joins. They look really effective hung in groups, or as the one i have made above small and for the Christmas tree!!!

Last nights Christmas Dec's

So following the theme of all things Christmas-y I made this last night...

the general plan is to have lots of handmade Christmas decorations this year, i'm planning to give some as presents and to keep some for my house...

This one was made with red felt, green embroidery thread buttons, ribbon and silver bells.
Now doing some more baubles for a friend...and then it will be time to tidy the house for friends coming over this evening.
Work tomorrow, so probably no post, but it will be patchwork on Friday...

Welcome Along!!!

So I have been meaning to do this for a while!!!
A blog about crafts, arty things and cooking!!!
Basically things I like to do in my spare time,
so in this blog I will be posting mainly about the crafts I make and some art, if i ever get round to doing any, and also some cooking.
so for now, I will maybe leave you with a few pictures of previous projects, which I may post about if people want to know how they are made.
This is a patchwork I was comisioned to make for a friends baby shower, the ladies at the shower each made a patch, then i sewed them together, quilted it and bound it. Hopefully they like it!!!

Some Christmas Decorations which I have started making, really easy out of felt and a bit of ribbon and a small bell at the bottom!!!
Birthday muffins for a friend, I did cheat, not something I do often, but they were still yummy and sugary!!!!

Butterfly made from felt, seriously easy but very cute, will probably use for a present at some point.

1st attempt at blanket stitch and making things from felt, it has proved pretty easy and quick!!!
