Yesterday I saw some key holders posted on a craft group I am in. I had bought the design a few days ago and had not got round to making them. So this morning I went to make them up and to cut a long story short I must have left my brain in the breadbox. The design told you to cut two pieces of fabric 22cm X 12cm so I did, then it told you to fold in half (so I did) then what did I do? I cut them in half again, thought to myself why didn't they just say cut four pieces 11 x 6 anyway I made one up and thought the bottom was really difficult to turn up and as you can see from the pic below what a mess. Later that day I was speaking to a friend who is also a fellow crafter and turns out she had also bought the same design, so I was asking her how she got on with the hemming, if she was next to me I just know her eyebrows would be raised to the max, umm what hemming she asked! several convos later I twigged with a friendly nudge from friend that I was not meant to cut the ruddy fabric in half again as that makes the hem duhhhhhhhh. You live and learn. Oh well tomorrow is another day.... I can hear my DH quoting his favourite expression RTFM....:)
Finally I got it right
Lynne's Key Fobs
Moria's Key Fobs
So there you go so perhaps tomorrow my brain will be reinstated and I will be able to follow instructions properly:)
Thank you so much for the emails I have received asking me if I was well. Yes I am thank you but instead of giving excuses ( I could invent several) as to lack of blog posts lately I hold my hands up and admit it was shear laziness and bad management on my part. Something else always seemed to pop up and then I would forget about it for a few days, and then it turned into weeks.
But I promise you I have been busy with a few custom orders, doing appliques and trying to master Kanzashi petals.
Love making these cushions with a machine applique of retro birds with gorgeous curly tails
my first attempt of Kanzashi flowers
A sweet little makeup bag
A few hair barrettes
I love Dandelions
Fun with Applique cats
This one was quite funny as I was to make a hairdressing cape with the name Eveyln, I made it up thinking perhaps it is a French way of spelling Evelyn. Client got it wrong and told me not to bother changing it and seemingly her friend thought it was hilarious. Wonder if she will ever use it?
Will be back soon with a giveaway have a great weekend xx
