Ania here w/...uhm...a little project that a 5th grader kid could have done way better, but hey, just because I am a scrapbooker doesn't mean I'm particulary crafty in other fields, and just because I have a sewing machine doesn't mean I use it for stuff other than paper sewing!!
But - I'm trying, and you see - right before we went off on a longer vacation I needed a storage box for this cardgame (Set - which by the way is the BEST card game out there ever.....for kids and grown ups alike..it's like a mini mensa test :p....our then six year old saw combinations we didn't see, and vice versa...so fun!).
Right. So I was forced to imrprovise a felt bag for this stack of cards.
A little wrapping, machine sewing, then hand sewing...as I said..a child could have done it better, but hey, I'm a novice and pretty proud of my forced solution!
I even decided to play with the fun gelato pens (Yellow-orange colorgroup - BEST COLORCOMBO EVER!). Smoshed it around the canvas, sprayed Maya Iridescent Pearl Mist over and smoshed some more and set the color w/ a heating gun. Vibrant, fun colorhues.
I sure like the color combo here...the orange butterfly against the lovely turquiose felt, combined w/the neutral hues from the wooden butterfly and the burlap ribbon. Also like the fact that there's so different fabrics going on here - burlap, canvas, felt....
So next time you need something practical...look into your own stash :D
Enjoy...it's soon time for CHA - can't wait to share the new CHA stuff with y'all soon!!
