Its been a busy week and none of it has been creative, today I was going to make myself a coin purse and try out a project from my Poppy Treffry book on it. But I haven't got a zip short enough which isn't a problem as its a nice excuse to pop into a haberdashery / fabric shop and get one and maybe some more fabric. I have a few other projects that I could start but they will take a few days and I don't want them left lying about the house especially as next week is the start of the school easter holidays.
Last week on my blog I mentioned I was in the middle of making a couple of mini cloth art dolls, they were finished on the friday and I got them ready for their photo shoot on Tuesday. I had a go a needle sculpting the faces, I was worried it wouldn't work as they are small, one head did go wrong but I quickly made up another one. The organza I used for the skirts I've had in my stash for ages and I have wanted to use it and these were the right dolls.
With Silva I thought the reverse of the organza looked great as the stars were silver, again I hand sewed on some sequins and I also struggled with her hair colour. I nearly went for a brown but the grey blue really suited her. She ended up looking very glamorous which helped to give both dolls their story. You can have a look at their story on ETSY
Anyway hopefully I can get back to creating something at the weekend or next week despite the holidays, maybe I'll get to make my purse.
Until next time
