I know I haven't been as regular with my blogging as I would like, don't you just wish life would slow down sometimes . . . but with the world we live in . . . that seems highly unlikely.
I have been able to sneak a little bit of craft and sewing into my days on the odd occassion and today I would love to share with you my latest project.
Recently on a trip to Spotlight I purchased some fabric with a difference - it has a laminate or plastic finish to it. I have wanted to try making something with this for the longest time, but never found any fabrics in designs I really liked. It was very exciting to find not only this type of fabric but also some lovely bright colours and styles, all of which I loved. I did refrain and only bought a sampling of a few different ones - it is expensive and I wanted the chance to try it before I went to crazy with my shopping.
Here is what I bought ~
These colours and designs co-ordinate so well with many of my quilting fabrics - it was really quite exciting. Something that can only be appreciated from one creative person to the next I'm sure!
Well this is what I have been making over the last week
. . . . . . Keyrings . . . . . . and I am loving them!!!!
I have been trying an amazing new stiffening product which I have used in the centres and these keyrings are very stiff and plastic coated, so they will be long wearing. The thing I love about them is they are so pretty.
I have made a few for my Etsy Store. If you have never visited before, please stop by for a visit and see some of the things I have enjoyed creating.
Now I'm off to enjoy the sunshine for a short time, it is a beautiful winter's day here . . . and have a cuppa with a good friend . . . perfect!!
Until next time, enjoy your crafting :)
