A blog about making art and other things using cloth, paper, paint, colour, stitch, and all sorts of exciting techniques, some of which I'm sure I still have to discover! I hope that the joy all this gives me is visible in what you can see here.

Useful Little Fabric Scraps!

Yes, two of the above are the same from my last post, but I've added some colour to them after all! I decided they were a bit too bland, and have added some colour with my Karisma pencils.

Not sure if you can still buy Karisma pencils, such a shame as they can be used heavily for really dense colour, and also blend really well. Prismacolour may be similar, but I've not tried them.

These two, above and below have been made from some small scraps of fabric that I've kept. After forming them around my piece of felt covered rigid plastic, I've added a few beads for embellishment. So simple and quick to make, little stocking fillers to put away for friends and family at Christmas!

I always knew those little fabric scraps would come in useful one day!
