it’s my 2.5 day on the couch and though i can’t really concentrate on doing something i feel very bored. that has also a lot to do with the ridiculous tv program during the day. so while i’m watched bad tv i did a little project to light up my mood.
since i rarely wear jewelry but still like a some adornment i’ve made a cloud brooch (again) from a piece of felt.
first i cut out a cloud shaped piece, stitched around with blue yarn and then attached colorful buttons and the brooch needle. easy.
my current jacket is made of wool felt so they make a great match. love these small and quick projects… :-)
I have a cold and can’t go to work. The antibiotics do a great job and I start to become bored. Yesterday I slept all day so I was wide awake at night so I started a little project. A cute little mobile for my baby niece. I’ve seen this once somewhere online and thought it can’t be that difficult.
That’s what I needed:Â sheets of felt, leftover thread, scissor, magic marker (I didn’t use the embroidery hoop but when I took this picture I thought I would)
Freehand drawing of a cloud and some waterdrops.
While I did the handstitching I thought next time I’ll sew with the machine. But it was midnight and that would have been a little too much in the middle of the night. And the handstitch gives it a nice crafty touch. The whole mobile looks like a big doodle :-)
My initial idea was to stitch my nieces‘ name on the waterdrops (a letter per drop) but… I already mentioned that it was around midnight, right… so I added letter beads on the drops
