After seeing 2 pairs of mittens I made for her twins, a friend asked me to makeover her winter hat. It was a plain dull black commercially knitted hat. She gave me a freedom to do whatever I wanted to do with the hat as long as there were flower or flowers and a little green color. Great!!! Flowers are always my favorite to make. So, check out what I came up with.
I've bee working on a this project in beetween orders. This is gonna be a wall hanging, a felt embroidery one. I used wool blend felt for this. I am thinking to send it a friend as present when I finish it. I added ivory buttons to accentuate it, my favorite running stitch to attach my felt pieces to the background. I am planning to do some more decorative running stitch on the top and bottom part. We'll see how the finish work will be!
That is a pincushion that I made to participate in Riley Blake Designs Pincushion Club 2012. To participate in that event, all participants had to make an original pincushion tutorial. I thought I would give it a try, so, I signed up and got a response from Julia from Riley Blake Designs Team. She agreed with my idea and put me on January 4th, 2013 spot ...YAY ... This is what I came up with. I call it " Two flowers pincushion" If you think that is cute and would like to try to make it, you can go toRBL site for the complete tutorial.
One of my favorite materials to work with is polymerclay. I am a selftaught of making creations out of polymerclay, mostly miniatures. However, I also enjoy making my own jewelry using polymerclay beads. Shabby chic and victorian are my favorite styles. Whimsical is also a style I love to make. Flowers are my inspirations most of the time. Here are some of my creations.
