6 Wet Felting Projects I’d Like to Try

By

Making felt from wool fibre is a magical thing. You start with a masses of soft fluffy roving that resemble fairy floss, and through the wonderful process of felting, the fibres that once barely touched each other are bonded for life in a strong compact fabric. It’s quite the transformation. I’ve enjoyed the craft of needle felting for many years…

Make Fruity Envelopes from paper plates

Fruity Paper Plate Envelopes

By

It’s been a while since I’ve made something exciting for my pen pals, so this week I got creative with some paper plates and transformed them into colourful Fruity Envelopes. I always try and make their mail deliveries a little bit more fun, like the times I sent a giant hamburger postcard, an ice-cream cone and a Christmas stocking. Fun…

Crochet Pattern: Rainbow Storage Basket

By

I love crocheting with t-shirt yarn, it works up so quickly and creates a very robust fabric which is perfect for decor items that need to stand up to wear, like storage baskets and rugs. I have accumulated quite a stash of t-shirt yarn, and because it’s bulky storage is always tricky. The perfect solution to my yarn storage dilemma…

We are heading to Oz Comic-Con tomorrow. We had a fun time last year when Emma dressed as Raven from Teen Titans, and after many, many weeks of deliberation, she finally settled on Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time.

I really love the bold graphic contrast of Black & White gingham fabric, I use it a lot in my sewing projects but thought it would be fun to experiment with how the pattern would translate to other materials.

The other day Emma asked me if she could do some sewing. Hooray! After watching me stitch she is finally taking an interest in trying it herself. She described to me in detail how she would push the ‘very sharp’ needle in the fabric and not get hurt because she is ‘a big girl now and knows how to do…
