Something New

So i am not very good at sewing but i would love to be. So i do try, its not always successful, but i try, lol.

I saw a pattern on the net for a memory bear so i dug out one of Rebecca's blankets and cut one out. The original was 12" so i decided for my trial version to scale it down to 6". Not sure if this was such a good idea as i had to hand stitch it as bits were too small for the machine.

Anyway, here it is. I am quite chuffed with it, lol.

The DH and boys keep wetting themselves with laughter, why, its a cutie. Have 2 full sized ones cut out ready.

And i will leave you with my spagetti eating monster. Not good for a compulsive cleaner, oh the mess.

Anyway off to soak my aching feet as just stood for 5 hours cooking burgers and bacon for a charity BBQ. Raised just short of £200 so cant complain.

Time slipping by

This week i decided to play around with digi for my bubbly project. I have this great kit (which is on sale at the moment for less than £3)which is circus/ steam punk themed. Alex had on this great T shirt with clocks and gears on which was just perfect for the kit. And as Alex started P7, his last year in primary school yesterday, it just seemed perfect to make a LO showing how time has just slipped by and it seems like only yesterday when i took him to nursery school aged 2 1/2 years old!

You can find the full details of the project HERE.

Anyway here is the LO. The first is the original digi LO i made and printed out ready for hybriding into a paper LO.

And the gears are customised from maya road chipboard albums.

The fabric of life mini album

This week for bubbly i made a very whimsical mini album using the oddly shaped Maya Road Sewing MAchine Album.

You can find all the details on how to make it here.

And here are the pics

I loved making this album with its mix of modern crate paper papers and vintage style Prima moulin rouge, topped of with whimsical botany and butterfly images. I think it works, but thats just me, lol

Sneaky peaky

This week i have been working on another mini album. I do so love to make albums but they take a lot of time and work but the finished products are just beautiful to have and to hold.

I will be back later with the finished product but in the mean time here are a few sneaks.

Creative Colour

My mum recently signed up for the new class by Christie Tomlinson: Creative colour. Its all about sourcing colour inspiration from your surrounds, internet, magazines etc and creating mood boards. Its designed to get you to think about colours you wouldnt neccesarily choose.

So together with my sister, we had a play day. My sister sarah(confused, she is adopted so 2 sarah's in our family, lol)is severly autistic but just loves to do arts and crafts. We had such a great time, and L Sarah sat for over 3 hours before she lost her focus.

Here are some pics of the preparation and making the backgrounds.

Even my 9 month old daughter Rebecca got in on the act.

and the finished product. Mum's is the green/ mustard one, mine is the larger yellow one, its for Rebecca's room and the blue/ pink one is L sarah's.

Isnt this outstanding for a very autistic young lady. All her own work except the rub ons which we did for her as she is very heavy handed.

Cant wait to do more of the classes.
