Sock Monster Mash!!

Checklist for making sock monsters:

Multiple body sizes
A variety of arm and leg lengths
Various options for facial features
A bit on the wonk (purposefully!)
Revelation of the maker's inner child

And what do you get with all of that...a heap of individually made and uniquely different characters. These are so brilliant, well done WCC ladies and special thanks to Clare for showing us x

Bloomin' Marvelous!

A collection of lovely felt flowers, handmade by the WCC ladies on Saturday. I really like how each one is unique and personal to it's maker...

These could now go on to become brooches, gift card/notebook embellishments or bag adornments, which ever way you use them they're sure to be noticed!

Ornamental trees by Kirsty

Sturdy Mr. Plod inspired pin cushions...decorative pieces for display....soft toys for children to create with....or handy door stops. These were great to make and a brilliant start to the idea of sharing project ideas amongst the collective.

Thanks Kirsty!! x x

Button Jewellery

Pretty little handmade button necklaces...lovely ladies!

We found that the jump rings we used were a bit risky with the fishing wire slipping through and may need replacing with an over-lap-key-ring style hoop for extra security...let me know if yours needs repairing! We live, make and learn...
