Yep, there is more! Brooches to be precise. You are going to be so bored by the time that I finish this! I don't care though as it forms a good record for me to look back on.
I have been making what I call flower and button brooches from felt for quite a while and they are selling reasonably well on Ebay. However I have not sold a single one on Coralie's Etsy. Does anyone ever buy from Etsy? I just use it to get ideas.
Anyway, here are some of my latest flower brooches. I have quite a few in stock so haven't made many of these.
Simon got me a Sizzix Big shot machine in the holidays. For those not in the know, it is a die cutting machine which means you can cut shapes very precisely with little effort and up to 8 layers at a time depending on the thickness of the fabric. It is brilliant. I do not have many dies yet but I do have a heart shaped one that cuts 3 different heart shapes at one time. I can layer the fabrics that I want so can cut really quickly.
One day last week my mind turned to heart shaped brooches! So, I have made a gazillion. Well about 16 actually! I have listed them on Ebay to see if they do better than the flowers. I am not really too bothered if they sell or not as I want to build up a stock of small inexpensive items so that I can have a craft stand at the dog show next year to raise money for them.
They only had a cake stall and a bric a brac and I think crafts will sell well. Especially if I can make things with a doggie link. There is a lot of dog print fabric around right now so that might work. In fact I made a couple of the heart brooches in dog fabric.
Well I still have more to "Show and tell" but I shall save it for another blog since this one was so long!
