Well my day yesterday didn't go as well as I had hoped. I did spend much of the day crafting but didn't get as much done as I planned. I had a disaster when I went to print as two inks had run out. I changed the yellow, no problem. Then I opened the blue and it leaked, aargh. I had bright blue fingers and it stains terribly. I scrubbed my hands with cream cleaner and a lot of it came out and it gradually faded with each wash. I sorted that out and then carried on crafting. I thought I was doing well for time only to find my clock needed a new battery!
So what did I make? Well LOTV have a new range of printable downloadable patterns to make felt toys but the patterns can also be used in other ways and the DT were asked if any of us would make a few examples. I have used one of the Precious patterns Christmas softies. There is a reindeer, snowman, gingerbread man and a penguin.
I printed the template and then copied it to 70% size. Cut out the templates and then cut round those on the different coloured card. I added pearls and a bow from Hobbycraft. The main paper is an old one and the banners were cut with MFT pierced banner dies and LOTV kraft Christmas digi papers. The sentiment is one of the new LOTV ones.
I would like to enter this into the holidays challenge at Creative Inspirations.
