Last Saturday my mum and I attended the Stitches and Craft Show in Sydney. We had a great time as always. We came away with a few goodies, some fat quarters, crochet pin markers, cutting dies and some double sided sticky tape [but that’s boring to photograph]. Here are my goodies…
I fell in love with helicopter fat quarter – I will make something for my little man not sure what just yet. Any ideas, most welcome! The orange and brown alongside it – might just become a lunch bag. The fat quarter bundle will be perfect with some tans and whites [striped, paisley] I have, again not sure what it will become.
Oh the crochet markers are fantastic, perfect for my AWIP, amigurumi work in progress. And the cutting dies, well I only just started playing with the bloom one and oh my, they turn out stunning. Here is what I made with scrap paper… I secured this one with thread and a bead.
Excuse my fancy filter and border I selected when I posted on Instagram. I made 3 sizes but can’t wait to make a bouquet with good quality paper . The dies are Lifestyle Crafts brand and I used them with my Cuttlebug machine.
We also came away very excited about Shashiko embroidery and Kanzashi flowers. The lovely Jane Mac Donald from Bebe Bold gave a very interesting and inspiring workshop on Sashiko Style and Kogin Embroidery. We also spotted some Kanzashi flowers which I have been researching [of course ;)]
