Hello Blog World,
First a bit of a brag about my family life, little Athletics is over for another season and congratulations to my daughter for making the state championships, she didn’t make the state team but she is still a champion in my eye making it that far. On another note she has made the state team for FUTSAL (Indoor Soccer for people not in the know). I wish I knew where she got her athleticism from!
Now on to why we are really here, the crafts!!
With all the sporting events and work and drawing classes, there has not been too much time for crafting. I am still working on my hutch and I am hoping to have that finished on the Easter break, I have also started sewing my quilt together and hope to have that finished this weekend.
What I did manage to sneak in on the weekend before I started piecing my quilt together was a small project I have been wanting to complete.
My magnetic photo peg! You may remember these photo pegs I made for my sister in law’s first market stall last year.
Well I really loved these and I had one left over that I kept for myself. So it’s been sitting there all naked for the last 4 months, just waiting to be made into something beautiful.
So since I had all my quilt bits out and they are blacks and whites, I thought why not work with the same theme? Grabbed my paper scraps out, found the perfect paper. Then had some scraps from my quilt and made my ruffle flower I love so much and hot glued her on.
Ta-da…fully clothed and magnetised photo/document peg!
You can’t really tell, but the pattern on the black paper is silver, so it has just the right amount of bling for me.
And I absolutely adore these flowers made out of fabric scraps, I just can’t stop making them. This time I popped a big plain black brad in the middle.
Nice side shot, see magnets hot glued to the back. I also painted the sides black to give a bit of a uniformed look I guess, but not the inside. My daughter Tiana said I should’ve painted that bit too. What do you guys think?
And here it is in use, cute and practical. Just what every girl needs. All in all I am very happy with how it turned out. Simple, cute and practical!
On a side note we had a craft fair last weekend, and I dragged hubby along, I did get some goodies, but have forgotten to take photos, maybe later. But one thing I didn’t forget to take a photo of is my new mug, exclusively reserved for when I am crafting.
Isn’t she a beauty?? I just couldn’t pass her up when I saw it!
I will be using her a lot this weekend, I have a lot of sewing planned and an announcement on a new card making venture I have just gotten involved with, but more on that later.
Until then Happy Crafting
