More different crafts......

OK Mrs Sausage I'll update my blog ( you know who you are!) I don't get much of a chance to get on the computer when the kids are on school hols, even the 2 year old asking to look at You tube! Not much chance of crafting either but have done a bit the last week or so I could share. I had a go at sewing & made a pump bag for my 8 year old from some jeans I got in a charity shop. May not be impressive to you sewers out there but for me whose hubby usually has to sew his own buttons on & this was my 1st attempt I was impressed!I also had a go at altering a charity shop skirt but just don't mention that one!

Still experimenting with felting & had a go at needle felting these flowers 

 







          Still having a go at candles following a recipe from a book. Now I've got them to look all nice but didn't really bother to follow (or actually understand) the instructions about wicks so although they look & smell very nice they don't actually burn properly!



I have got premises now! My own little cabin at a permanent craft market. I have just taken on a months rent to see how it goes for now & if any good I will rent it full time. I move in on 18th April so hope it goes well!

You feltwork looks pretty from here. It's good too try different crafts.

It's good news that you have space at a local craft market. Good luck

Fantastic Caz, truly great makes, I am incredibly impressed. The pump bag is fab, LOVE the needle felted flowers (something I would like to try next!) and the candle WOW. I'm rather embarrassed about my egg shell ones now!
What a variety of skills you have. Its a shame about the skirt but I'm sure with a little more practice you will crack it.
I wish you the best of luck with your craft market (your first one is the day before my birthday!!)It sounds very exciting and a perfect place to show off all your new skills.
