Previous crafting successes.

So taking into account I have been more heavily involved in craft for the last year, it may take a little while to post all the things I have made, worthy of showing you. So let's start from the beginning...

Christmas Crafts 2009:


I bought these two Reindeer from Lincraft, they were about $8 each, and just plain cardboard type paper mache. My mum, several years ago bought two cute Reindeer just like these, but they were painted gold with gold leafing all over them, they have cute collars with Holly & bells and glitter and such, and cute little saddles. So I thought I'd try my hand at doing this... and this what I came up with. I love them!

In either November or December of 2009, our ward Relief Society put on a Midnight Madness craft night. They put together different workshops of different crafts, and then you just pick and pay for which you'd like to do. The next few items are from that night - well I got them that night anyway, took forever to actually finish everything!!

Christmas Cushions

These were three stitcheries I did, and turned them into cushions. I'm happy with how they turned out. But I will admit I get so very confused with measurements and cutting out fabric etc, so Alicia had to help me with these.

Quiet Bag

For Spencer's Christmas present I thought I would give him A)something age appropriate B) something he desperately needed. A Sacrament Meeting Quiet Bag. I filled it with all sorts of activities, flip charts, crayons, colouring in books, some little toys.. and you get the idea. I believe he quite likes it.

I have been casually asked by a friend if I could make one of these bags for her daughter. I suppoooooose I could make them for other's kids. They can be time consuming so don't expect it too soon!

I think this will be sufficient for my first post. Still PLENTY more to come!!

You should check out Bobbie Comber's fabric flowers tutorial. I've half completed mine :-)

HAHA! Yes I did see that! Once I'm all caught up on past projects, I have a tutuorial coming up of how to make PAPER FLOWERS haha. The fabric flowers got me thinking and I came up with my own "card making" version and I'm currently in the process of making up about 15 cards with the flowers I made. Planning on putting it all up here soon!
