Cute Little Native Indian Felt Girl

I've been busy making this super cute Native Indian Girl out of felt. She is made using a pattern from Ginger Melon who does the most fantastic designs - I want them all!!!! I've made her completely by hand and she was quite fiddley due to her size - she is just 12cms tall and fits into the palm of my hand!!!

I am really pleased with the finished result and will be making a few more of these!!!

Charity Shop Bargain Buy!!

Don't you just love it when something in a charity shop catches your eye and immediately you know what you will use it for!!!!!  Well when I saw this retro 70's cassette holder I had that exact feeling!!

The stamp pad to the side of it should give you a hint!!!  Yep my ink pads fit perfectly into the slots so it makes a fantastic funky ink pad holder!!!!

It even has additional storage to the side

I paid £1 for it and it is really sturdy so a complete bargains!!

Here is how it looks now

Letraset Neon Markers

Today in the post I had a pack of the new Neon Markers from Letraset to test out for them.

The pens come in 6 colours, Spark Red, Electric Pink, Radiant Orange, Luminous Yellow, Glowing Green and Volt Blue.  They are twin tipped, pigmented and lightfast.  As they are water based you can blend them to make the shades lighter and more subtle if you want to.

I have used a watercolour brush with them today and the results were lovely.  The Volt Blue would be great for colouring sky.

They are available as single pens or in a pack of 6 and you can get them from Letraset here, don't forget Letraset offer free delivery for :

UK - orders over £20
EU - orders over €25
USA - orders over $33

Hello Again and a Flannel Reindeer Tutorial!!

I've not blogged for a long time - seem to spend alot of time on Facebook and never find the time to blog!

Anyway - today, I have finally sat and done a photo tutorial for Flannel Reindeers as I have had lots of comments and views on my post that I did on these a year or two back.  It went onto Pinterest and appeared in a few US online publications!!

If you'd like to make them, my tutorial can be found here
