Craft Weekend

Mum and I managed to make lots of things this weekend, we had fun shopping for supplies in charity shops and at a boot fair. This picture shows all of our creations.

We had a small embroidery frame each for some creative embroidery, this is what I came up with.

I had my first go at machine quilting with my new sewing machine foot. It was really good fun. I have made a small patchwork mat with a quilted wiggly pattern to stand my sewing machine on.

I made us a tiny doll each, our first project of the weekend was to given them hair, faces and to dress them. This is mine, she is called Strawberry. I am hoping to work on this idea for my Folksy shop. I need to find a better way of doing the hair and slightly alter the body shape to make them easier to dress.

We each had a piece of 100% recycled wrapping paper that we found when we went for lunch at Ryton Organic Gardens. Mum covered a box to make a pretty seed packet storage box. I raided the recycling for cardboard to make a photo frame. I am really pleased with the results.

We had a wonderful weekend and really enjoyed all the things we got up to.
