A treasure bag


Hi everyone!
 I am sure when you go to the beach, you pick a lot of little treasures.


So I decided to make a special treasure bag to collect (not too much!) all pretty finds.



The new collection "by the sea"from Crafty Ribbons is just perfect for it. I used by the sea-seaside for the bag's bottom.


and by the sea-lighthouse for the handles. Very quick to sew and I think it will be appreciate by all.

Have a peaceful time today,

Fairy Jar


Hello, Laura here today.  I have something a little out of the ordinary to share with you today...

It's a ribbon fairy in a jar of mushrooms!  Bear with me here...  ;)



The first thing I thought of when I saw the Spring Ribbon Mushrooms was fairies.  I decided to try and make a miniature fairy to live among the mushrooms.


I've used a couple of beads for her head and body, 2mm silk ribbon for her arms and legs, seam binding and silk ribbon for her skirt and lace for her wings.


I also made a couple of mushrooms from Swiss Dot grosgrain and wire stems.  I suspended the fairy on a thread so it looks like she is flying.


Totally bonkers but so much fun!

Thanks for stopping by!

Bunny Butt Bunting


Hi Folks, Laura here.  I've been playing with a cute free cut file from UK Scrap Addicts.  It's designed by my friend Emma and she called it Bunny Butt - what's not to love?!


I set my Silhouette Cameo to cut a warren of rabbits and set about making some bunting for Easter.


I started off with my ribbon - Swiss Dots Organza ribbon in a colourway exclusive to Crafty Ribbons.  I matched my watercolours to the dots on the ribbon and messily splashed paint over the bunnies.  When that was dry I splattered a load of gold ink over them.  It kind of looks like the mottled eggshells on Mini Eggs!


I pulled a few felt hearts from SpiegelMom Scraps and a handful of paperclips and clipped the bunnies at a regular-ish distance apart across the ribbon.  Really simple.  Well, I struggled with a few of the paperclips, actually, but it should have been simple!!


I don't have a good place to hang bunting to photograph it, so this is the best I can offer for a hanging photo...


Cute, huh?  Here is the process video:



Thanks for joining me today.  Happy Easter!
