Boy, oh boy, have a gotten a lot of mileage out of my bamboo placemat. Even with yesterday's and today's projects I still have more than half of it left!
I'm really happy with this cute mini I made using Evangeline papers between placemat book covers. I plan to fill it in with some pressed flowers from my yard as a keepsake when we move.
Next I made a hair clip for Abby. Don't worry, I know she will break, lose or flat out refuse to wear it in a matter of weeks! But, it's just so darn beautiful against her red hair that I couldn't resist.
The fabric flowers I used were machine cut, but if you don't have a fabric cutting machine, you can see an easy technique for cutting them yourself in this video. To make your flower, simply fold your cut fabric in half and press it around the edge. For this style, bring the fabric much further onto the Gluber as shown in the picture below. Repeat with a smaller cut of fabric for the inner petals. I used hot glue to attache the gem because it is quite heavy. Then flip it all over and glue on a hairl clip and find a beautiful girl to wear it!
Last, I made this fun little necklace for a friend of mine. Is it just me, or do the cream colored Tiny Text stickers make the bamboo look like piano keys? I love that and hope my musical friend will too!
Well, I'll leave you to your Friday. I hope it's fabulous and that you all have amazing weekends!
