We had another felting session today - felted soaps, more needle felting (out of the new book) and then finished off the afternoon by making a birthday crown for one of Bella's Blythe dolls. Alice is turning one this week and we're planning a little celebration for her birthday. Just a low key affair - cupcakes, Blythe dolls dressing up in party dresses, handmade gifts and of course, a new birthday crown.
Bella drafted the pattern and then set to work with the design. She felted the spots and bird onto the front, which was really easy and fast - much quicker than stitching.
Here's Bessie modelling the crown - incase you're wondering, it's a surprise for Alice, so she isn't allowed to see just yet.
How was your weekend? Ours went way too fast and the weather has been really cold here lately, more like winter than autumn. I'm guessing if the cold keeps up, we're going to need a whole wad of craft activities to see us through the next 20 weekends. Sigh. I'm positive we didn't even have a summer this year!
