Handmade Stamps

I recently bought a cutting machine, a KNK Zing Air. One of the first things I cut was fun foam to make some stamps. The birds were images I found on the web, the rabbit and frog with snail were drawings from my sketchbook and the hare was from a photograph of some decorative architecture relief. I stuck the foam shapes to wood, cardboard and an old plastic card.

New Vibrant Swatch

Spoonflower have released a new fabric - cotton spandex jersey, suitable for sports wear, t-shirts etc.
I decided to print this vibrant design on it, created on my tablet.
This is what it would look like in repeat.

Denim Apron and Tiny Purses

 A denim apron I made from old jeans.
I made two purses from a 8"swatch of faux suede Spoonflower fabric, one of my designs. The pictures show both sides of each. I wanted a small purse to keep a credit card and a bit of loose change in but unfortunately these are a little too small. The credit card would fit in them, the problem is getting it in!

Felt Animal Mobile

I made these animals in felt for a mobile for my grandson. 
I looked on the internet, in particular Pinterest for ideas.
