Tea Wallet.. Take one.

for my first foray back to craft Ive made some tea wallets...

I'm just a little in love with tea.

Photos aren't the best, but you get the idea... tutorial here

inspiration from the 80's

recently i picked a book called stitch by stitch from the oppy which is full of great sewing, knitting and crocheting ideas.. that is if you want to look like you've just stepped out of 1985.. but then again fashion is a cycle.

here's one of the ideas from the book for all your little bits of left over wool..

tie all the bits together...

the book called for knitting (which i cant do) but i crocheted them into a block..
and Voila!

pure 80's awesomeness!

Now i actually really like it.. (being an 80's girl myself) its retro, funky and i got to use a heap of leftover bits of wool just screaming for me to do something with them. thinking this will end up being a cushion cover or part thereof..

Im now inspired for the next MEGA PROJECT... stay tuned.

mummas back.. in small doses.

Hi Blog World!

its about time i got my bum into gear and posted because... I'm crafting again!
about time too because my craft area has exploded (due to ransacking mum's back room and stealing.. i mean acquiring, a heap of fabric and wool.

i need inspiration and quickly, before i get buried.
