Buttons and Felt

I've been doing a little jewellery making - with buttons.  Just thought I'd share my first creation.  The jewellery findings are antique copper from The Bead Shop and the buttons are from my stash, some vintage some new,
Another creation I'd like to share is my felted bag.


A few weeks back I mentioned going on a feltmaking course at Tigerlily Makes whilst I was on holiday up in the Midlands.  Well, this is the bag I made, not bad for a first attempt.  In one day I learnt the whole felt making process and came away with a completed bag and the confidence to make felt on my own at  home.

For me the course was all the more special because I finally got to meet my long time blogging buddy Lisa Olson.  You may remember Lisa from her cardmaking blog Craftbugs.  Well Lisa now owns and runs  Tigerlily Makes.  If you've ever fancied having a go at making felt I can highly recommend Tigerlily Makes.  Lisa is a brilliant teacher, so encouraging and patient.

I'll be back tomorrow with some more papercrafting.
