So this week, despite it being half-term I got something new started. I've been thinking about making a necklace of scrips and scraps for some time now, and it's one of those things on my virtual list that I always manage to forget about it. So here it is, unfinished as yet, but it's proof of a couple of busy evenings at least.
There's lots more to do - more beads to add, maybe a few feathers here and there and then once I'm happy with it I'll need to back it and add ties. And as I've got lots of different scraps of fabric in lots of colours I can forsee that I'll be playing around with a few of these before long. I can't wait to get the children settled in bed so that I can have another play but as it's the holidays that might prove a little tricky.....
Two of the flowers I've added were pre-made, but the others (which do look a little indistinct at the moment) were made by gently melting the edges of organza with a candle flame. If you're interested in making some of your own flame kissed flowers plus some other ideas for making you own here are two great blogs with lots of tutorials, Little Birdie Secrets and Skip To My Lou.
And as if that wasn't enough make sure to skip over to Handmade Monday and check out what everyone has been up to this week. Have a great week all!
