MY RECENT HANDCRAFTING
I thought I'd post a few pics of what I've been making recently. Below are a couple of crocheted rugs and some premmie beanies that I've made for local Hospitals.
Next is a rather prim bunny made from calico that was from a pattern in a Handmade magazine. She has wool felt flowers appliqued onto her skirt. She is also supposed to hold a carrot and have stitching on her paws, but I had to forego these as she was needed for part of our Q.C.W.A. display at the local Agricultural Show. Our branch won the first prize for the clubs display section. I didn't get to the show myself, but hope to get hold of a photo of the display. If I do, I'll post it here, as there are some very talented ladies in our Q.C.W.A. branch.
This third pic is a last minute item I created that unbeknownst to me, was entered in the hand-appliqued section of the show. It actually won 2nd prize. I'd love to tell you who inspired me with a very similar mat, but I'm very sorry, I really can't remember whose blog I saw it on. I'm sure they'll know if they see it here.
This mat was made from hand-dyed wool felt. I used my Ozecraft dyes that I use to dye my silk ribbon and some parisian essence for the brown bunnies. All the dyes, I made sure were colourfast.
