Another set of felt jewelry

Hello Guys,

I don’t have much time nowadays, as my son will be 2 years old in no time, so I have to be prepared for that! I am making small scrapbook albums for the grandparents, making some decoration for the home, and have to make some gift for him as well. I have ideas, and I bought something already, but it’s always more fun to create something with your hand! Will not show you anything from these before 1st of May (his birthday), so I had to create some new jewelry to have something to write hehe 🙂

Here is a small set of those:

Book review by me – Fabric leftovers

Hello Guys,

I’ve ordered some books from Amazon, and I wanted to share some really cool ideas what I’ve found there. My first review is about Fabric Leftovers: Simple, Adaptable Ways to Use Up Scraps from D’Arcy-Jean Milne.

Fabric leftovers

“- Got scraps that are too good to throw away?” – A LOT!
“- Don’t know what to do with them?” – Hmm, can use some new ideas!

Of course I have a lot of scraps. Mainly from felt, but some years ago I have started to sew, and I kept all of the small scraps. I made patchwork pillows, them I kept the smaller pieces… so I have an awesome book to create some new stuff with them. Look at these ideas:

(sorry for the bad pictures, in the book these things looks awesome!)

Some of my favorite: recycled JEANS again!

Another set of felt jewelries

Hello All,

I’ve created 2 new felt pendants – the blue-green is a new inspiration, but the blue … that was in my shop, and when I remade all of my photos, I realized that this item is no longer available. Actually, I don’t remember, what happened with that, probably I gave it to someone as a gift, but I just don’t know, when. It was one of the most favorited item in my shop, I decided to remake it, and upload it again. You can find it in my shop with my other ~170 items 🙂
