>

Where did we stop today? at the shop with cutest stuff… felt brooches in yummy designes, jewelry and decorative felt cakes…

and behind the scene there is Catherine:


I’m Catherine, an 18 year old student from the Midlands, and owner of Mrs Toad Designs. I have always enjoyed making things, and have been sewing since I was small. For the past five years I have been designing and making beaded jewellery, as well as hand stitched felt brooches. Recently I have begun making my own felt, using wet and dry felting techniques and Merino Cross wool, which I use to create my felt cake pincushions.

check her cute and lovely shop:

>WIPs – NOT CROCHETED…

by izabela

>I started teaching myself to make Kanzashi flowers, I know – I want to learn too many crafts and I will never be great with one, but everything I see and like I want to try, so I thought I will share my first attempt at this; what was not too good because I messed everything up, but the idea of this trinket is very nice…

Zaczelam uczyc sie robic kwiaty Kanzashi, wiem ze chce sie nauczyc za wiele i nigdy bede dobra w zadnej z nich, ale jesli cos widze i podoba mi sie to zaraz chce sprobowac, wiec pomyslalam ze pierwsza probka tez sie podziele; ktora wlasciwie nie jest za dobra bo wszystko popsulam, ale sam pomysl na ta ozdobke jest dobry…



first I made squares 1,5″ and tried to make a petal and I found them too big (me – stupid)
then I made them half the size and made a flower, but decided I need “something different”
and last when I started making “it different”, the petals started to fall apart because the glue was still soft and I have no practice yet, and you can see the mess

najpierw przygotowalam kwadraty 4 cm i sprobowalam zrobic platek ale nie pasowal mi bo wydawal sie za duzy (glupia ja)
potem zmniejszylam rozmiar o polowe i zrobilam sliczny kwiatek, ale zdecydowalam zrobic “cos innego”
i ostatecznie zaczelam robic “cos innego”, platki zaczely odpadac bo klej byl jeszcze miekki i nie mam jeszcze praktyki , i mozecie zobaczyc ten balagan

I thought as well I share little progress on commission for a friend

pomyslalam rowniez, ze warto byloby podzielic sie postepem w pracy nad specjalnym zamowieniem dla przyjaciela…

>THEODOR THE FELTED BEAR…

by izabela

>I would like to introduce Theodor to all of you… He is a very talented panda and eats the willow on my balcony instead of eucalyptus… why I said he is very talented? probably one day I will show you his paintings but at the moment he is waiting for his new brushes… so hello!

przedstawiam wszsytkim Teodora… jest on bardzo utalentowanym misiem panda i zajada mi wierzbe na balkonie zamiast eukaliptusa… a czemu mowie ze taki utalentowany? pewnego dnia moze pokaze wam jego obrazy ale na razie czeka na swoje nowe pedzelki… wiec witaj!


it took me some to make this bear, trying to make him sit and stand properly, but it was worth it… I am really happy how he looks and behave… and I already forgot about stubbed to blood fingers now I got first commission on felted things – and it is going to be… a bear – little mascot for Liverpool fan… hmmm…

zajelo mi troche czasu zrobienie tego misia, tak zeby siedzial i stal poprawnie, ale sie oplacalo… jestem bardzo zadowlona z efektu jak wyglada i sie zachowuje… i juz zapomnialam o zadzganych do krwi palcach bo mam juz pierwsze zamowienie na filcowana rzecz – i bedzie to… mis – mala maskotka dla fana Liverpoolu… hmmm…
