A mixture of creations this week.
Since the last post, there’s been another batch of new test candles made with the same scents as last time. I’ve dyed each of them a different colour this time so it’s easier to tell them apart. Good news is that none burst into flames, so the fire brigade can relax a bit. Bad news is these didn’t give a strong scent when lit, although they smell great when just standing on their own, so I’m heading in the right direction.
As well as the candles, I have been making quite a lot of cookies. Unfortunately they are not the edible kind. If they were, they would probably not last long enough to be photographed
These are fabric fortune cookies made from layers of fabric and felt, sewn together with thread that contrasted with the colour of the felt. All that’s needed to finish these off is a bit of ribbon to thread through each one, to make it into a little hanging ornament. As they are at the moment, I think they look a bit like pasta shapes or ravioli.
During a recent night out, I was in a bar when I noticed something unusual hanging over the table. Photos were taken in low light on my phone so apologies for the quality.
It was a hat that’s been turned into a lampshade. Why mention this in a crafting post?
It’s because it was a handmade hat! Quite a surprise to me. Sometimes handmade turns up in the most unexpected of places. Hope everyone has a good week.
