Craft it Forward: My endeavours so far
Craft it Forward’s a great idea – make five presents for people, who then go on to make five more for others and so on. This is my first time taking part in this worthy project and I set myself just one simple rule: Don’t spend any money. So here’s what I’ve crafted thus far, working with what I had in the house.
I used scraps of old clothes and felt to make some lovely little flowers and leaves, then matched them up with some scenic paper from a magazine and put them in a little frame. Cheap and charming!
I wanted to use my new sewing machine so thought I’d try my hand at making my first-ever statement necklace. Using old scraps of material, a lot of beads, a few buttons and some ribbon I came up with this reversible little number. I don’t think it’s too bad for my first attempt and I learnt how to do a blanket stitch into the bargain. I count this as a win!
I’ve still got two more projects to get going with, but I think I’m going great guns so far.
Are you doing Craft it Forward this year? What have you come up with?
