We are headed back up to the cottage early tomorrow morning for a week. I can hardly wait to get there but my "to-do" list just keeps growing and growing!!!! It's going to be super hectic from now until tomorrow morning when we finally get out of here.
I've been a teensy bit crafty the last few days but mostly I've been doing laundry, cleaning the house and packing for the week.
First up are my keychains. This is actually the second revision of the design. The font I used the first time was cute, but terribly hard to read. I'm quite happy with these ones.
They really were super easy and affordable to make. I can provide more details if anyone is interested.
Second up are fabric pendants. I've been trying to figure out how to make these for a while now. All I did was glue a tiny square of fabric to a scrabble tile and I used a clear acrylic top coat to make them durable and shiny. These three are for practice only. I learned that the fabric needs to be applied to the back of the tile, the letters are showing through just a little bit.
In real life the finish on the pendants is much clearer and smooth. The photo seems to exaggerate the flaws which honestly aren't nearly as noticeable in real life. I've ordered some bails for them which haven't yet arrived. I'm looking forward to re-doing them and perhaps adding a decorative button and bail.
I've also been making some Halloween cards.
It's funny, with all the things I need to do and get done before we can leave for the cottage, my craft bag has been packed for days. Priorities I tell you!!!!
Anyways, have a super week. I'll be back after Labour Day!!!!
