Little Things

I've got lots of little crafts from the past while that don't deserve their own posts, so I've saved them up for y'all.

My first felting project! I got a bag full of rainbow-coloured merino, and a bunch of white Cheviot ('cuz it's cheaper!) and did my best to turn them into felt sheets. They weren't really holding together, so I threw them in the drier for 20 minutes, and oh boy presto-change-o, beautiful thick felt... a bit thicker than I'd planned, but oh well! I sewed them together different than originally intended and got a great needle book anyways.

A pair of Jaywalkers, using the same shaping as my last pair, yet somehow coming out slightly bigger. (Oh well.)

Jaywalkers II

New buttons for Forecast, making it actually wearable:

And a great charity-shop find!

Wow that loom rocks - and does the label really say 50p?
