I recently had a week off to be lazy and have some crafty "me" time, it didn't really go to plan but with a inspiration from fellow bloggers, crafty magazines and a little trial and error I finally managed to get crafty!
My Nan used to remove all buttons and zips from clothes before throwing them away. Whilst watching a film one evening I twiddled and twirled one of the zips into this floral'esque brooch, which I rather like.
My friend Alison, a print artist and social media teacher and I had a pop at making some earrings, rings and hair slides. We've been collecting unusual objects to continue this idea most of our beads came from Japan which, Alison sourced whilst on a photography project.
This little mosaic was a birthday gift and made a pleasant afternoons distraction to the pouring rain,
plus I have a shiny new coaster!
finally my sewing machine saw action after a little inspiration from Lazy Daisy and
Mary Jane Baxter. I finally made some head bands from vintage buckles and some vintage pillow
cases as well a some modern cotton. Just for fun I knitted a bow hair slide!
after all this creativity I needed a little rest!
