I keep making these because they are very popular at craft fairs... however I am starting to wonder if I am just making them for me really. But hey, who cares? That's what crafting is about right? Selfish Fun
I adore chainmaille and have been playing around for a while now with different effect and colours. This is one of my favourite pieces just because of the use of closed rubber jump rings. A mix between the gothic and the cyberpunk effects.
So okay I am not the worlds best knitter... and therefore yes this is off a pattern. But I had to show everyone, just because I was so happy I finished something that looked this sweet. Love this guy... even did a friend to go with him.
And his friend - the Owl of Mystery.
I should point out that I have no idea where those names came from... or why I have stuck with them... but hey, no major right?
It's been so long since I've had time to post anything on here. Not because I didn't want to, but just because of the joys of life. Or not as the case may be.
Any who though, I thought I would introduce you to a couple of knitted friends of mine. I'm more than a little impressed by the way these guys turned out, hence the sharing. And of course there is nothing wrong with sharing
As some of you may already know, I love working with felt. After making up plenty of feltie rabbits for valentines day I thought I would go back to the roots of madness and sew this little guy together. My boyfriend has fallen in love with him, so I think I might have to make a bigger version. Hope you like him as much as I enjoyed making him!
Okay, so this is kinda recycled as it was given to me looking a little bit like it had gone through the wars. It was covered in layered of emulsion and needed stripping. The hinged needed to be replaced and it deserved a whole new look.
It was repainted using emulsion again (not normally something I would use of wood but they were the colours I wanted). I chose to mix a soft pink with a grey-purple shade. I covered the ghastly opening clasp with a butterfly motif. At least now is can sit on my shelf looking less of an eyesore.
Card making I can do, but this is the first time I have ever had to do anything for myself. This is the front of one of my Wedding/Hand-fasting invites. As you can probably tell there is a gothic theme going on. This is only one of three designs I will eventually get round to doing. I know the picture quality isn't great. My camera battery is dead so I had to rely on my phone
I completed these little guys over the weekend. I haven't made them for any real reason. Had some black felt knocking about and thought I could make something to hang on my wardrobe door. They are all a little wonky but I think it gives them a personality of sorts.
This one looks surprised for some reason
This one is my fave. He has bent wings and a 'why me?' look hehe...
