OOh I felt so bad (see what I’ve done there) when I realised I hadn’t announced the winner of the Cloud Craft felt giveaway. To make up for my lacksadaisical approach to my responsibilities I am giving away a second prize of my prototype ice lolly purse!
So the lucky winner of the felt package from Cloud Craft is Lynda Forster and congratulations to Miss Melvis who is now the proud owner of the purse. Use the contact form on my About Me page to send me your email addresses and I’ll get the gifts out to you soonest.
So it’s still summer, it’s still Summer Holidays (just) and therefore it’s still Ice Lolly Weather. If you’re looking for a crafty project to keep little (or big) hands busy then this felt ice lolly shaped purse might just do the trick. Made up of simple shapes, it requires a little hand sewing and a lot of sequin sticking but it’ll be super useful for the following things:
1. Keeping ice cream money in or
2. Storing iphones or ipods or
3. making sure that mini bottle of sun lotion is always to hand or
4. keeping shell collections safe or even
5. as a nice new pencil case for school.
Here’s the step by step guide on how to make it …
and the templates
If you want to try your hand at making this project but you don’t have any felt to hand don’t panic as I’ve teamed up with lovely Nicole from Cloud Craft to give away a pack of the five felts you’ll need for the project. Nice one Nic.
