Project no sew

My sewing machine is sat looking sorry for itself, well in my head it does. She is broken and I was sat here wondering what to do when I realised I have a few projects that do not require any form of sewing

So here is one I finished earlier (about 20 minutes ago to be precise)

I am going to say a big sorry for the quality of the photo, one day I will take a decent photo in the middle of the day.

I think I have decided to buy a new machine but it is such a big decision with so many choices I am slightly overwhelmed, I am quite happy for my 2 year old to be in charge 😉 he seems to be quite good at making decisions even if everything is a BIG resounding NO!

Decoupage

A while ago I went to a craft fair and saw someone sticking paper to wood, I think that is the technical term…

Anyway I decided to get my son’s name in wooden letters and have a go, I was quite pleased with how they turned out

I quite enjoyed the repetitiveness of ripping the paper up and gluing it down and you can have a finished article in next to no time.

I enjoyed it so much I am thinking of doing some more letters as birthday gifts next year.
