I had our Crafternoon day on Saturday and saw these photos for the first time.
The large pictures in different coloured felt have been ironed onto the couches.
I think they did a great job of following my instructions.
they look great.
Two very different styles of drawings used in this project. I hope to see one more of them from the front, they have the wildest fur fabric on the seats. The giant floor pillows look great too with their alphabet letters on one side and the plain on the other. Can you spot the Once Upon a Time chair in the middle background? The library was a fun project to do.
I have been busy with Christmas makes. Dozens of beaded stars and crochet snowflakes. mini bears are also being made. Posting 8 laundry bags today too. Back to my charity makes after having a couple of weeks off doing all the Christmas makes.
Gold braid has been measured and I have enough to go around all the 5 runners. This is the style I have chosen. 5 motifs per runner, a bauble, a wreath and a tree. The bauble is the centre. They are just placed for the moment, when they are ready to be attached they will be in measured distances.
This is what I am currently working on. Circles have been cut out from one side of the quilt cover and are being turned into hexagons with buttons in the centre. When I have done these then I will cut out the other side of the quilt and these will be circle puffs with beads in the centre. Then I will be ready to turn them into Christmas designs to be added to the table runners.
Yesterday was my birthday, I had a lovely time. In the morning I finished making my Christmas brooches, I made 75 in total. I also found out that I have been invited to a birthday today, so I needed to make up a quick gift. Luckily I have a stash of stuff that i buy when they are on special to go under the K Mart Wishing Tree each year so making up a package was not too hard.
This little girl loves to draw, so I have made up this package. a black paged book, colouring pencils, chalk, crayons, an eraser, a sharpener, a white gel pen and I quickly made up a bag to fit them all in and a little pouch bag too. The bag is the same method that is used to make the laundry bags just scaled down to fit the goodies. The pattern for the little bag is here,
Continuing with my table runners this is my idea. Bag of buttons from Savers, the beads are dismantled napkin holders also from Savers and a quilt cover from Savers. I am going to cut out all the circles and make hexagons and circle puffs from them. The circle puffs will have the buttons in the middle and the hexagons will have the beads for the middle. then I will arrange them on the runners in shapes that say Christmas, trees for example but I am thinking Santa face and baubles too. Each runner will be different. I will work that out after I have assembled all the parts.
Both of these things were bought from Savers Mill Park. The dark green curtain fabric is going to be cut into long wide strips as table runners and the gold braid will be sewn around the edges for a simple but luxurious effect. (I need to make 5). I have an idea brewing for the actual table decorations, more on that later.
