Snowman Toy

This is a photograph of a snowman I made.

I made this snowman with fabric and fabric pens. Me and my friend made some and we made different hats and scarfes to put on them. We did all the work including the sewing by ourselves. My little sister also joined in and made a snowman picture with the fabric.

Desk Tidy

I made the desk tidies shown above as a gift for my teacher. These were really fun to make. I used old bisto gravy tubs to make these. I used sticky backed plastic to cover them and then added some lovely gold sticky tape around the top and bottom.

The photograph below shows a tub before it is decorated.

You can use any container you wish, it doesn't have to be a gravy tub. My mum has used old tin cans from vegetables or baby milk. Why don't you try to upcycle something today.

Queen Elizabeth 1st Drawing

At school we have been studying the Tudor Times in our History lessons. We all had to do draw a picture of Queen Elizabeth 1st.

The photograph above is the drawing that I did at school, I now have it at my home.

Felt Donut

The photograph shows a donut I made out of felt.

This was very easy to make, I used a cd to draw around to make the circle shape.  I made this by sewing by hand. I made sprinkle designs by hand stitches which also helped keep the pink incing to stay in place.

You only need 3 circle pieces of felt or fabric to make this and some kind of stuffing. Two circles the same size for the top and bottom of the donut. and a circle for the icing. You cut the icing into a nice shape. I used a cd to get the shape for the circle and the centre of the circle to cut out. I used some of my mum's wadding to fill the donut.

These are also great to make and give as pin cushions for gifts for your family.
