I love rummaging through old books and finding quirky sentences that make me smile. These snippets of 'poetry' were a little more controlled in that I just hunted for descriptive words relating to my chosen topic!
I started making these spoons earlier this year after seeing something similar by the hugely talented Kelli Perkins. It wasn't 'til I just checked for the link here that I realised how similar - oops!
I've got a few more inked up, it's the word hunting that takes the time!
Prompted by Gwen's lovely flower yesterday I got started on some felted flowers that have been in my head awhile. I added some merino wool and snippets of fabric to a piece of yellow felt, then free machined some flower outlines before cutting them out.
It was the container that gave me a bit of trouble. I bought five pepper pots from Dunelm Mill the other day for just this purpose, inspired by Sue Pelletier's wonderful snowmen. I just couldn't decide what to put in the jar!
I tried buttons, beads, even tiny stones, but went for snippets of fabric in the end. It still wasn't looking right until I added some snippets around the base and some cotton around the rim.
Just to show you the back - I stitched the felted piece to some old net curtain as two layers of felt, one of which was felted on top, was a bit think for the sewing machine! Ok, off to write more poetry. Thanks to all for the advice yesterday, much appreciated :)
