My Creative Space

Well, since my family is still taking it in turns to fall ill, I have resorted to working on relatively quick and small projects which can be done while sitting with a sick child.  The bow tie and lacey yoyo above are the two latest hair accessories I have made for my monkeys to wear to school (school colours are red and bottle green).  I used a lovely, old remnant of forest green velvet I found at one of my local op shops.  The fabric was a little hard to work with but my monkeys are pleased with the results.  Actually, the bow tie has got me thinking I will make some asymmetrical bow necklaces for Two Cheeky Monkeys and maybe share a tutorial on the blog too.

And speaking of my jewellery store, I have also managed to complete four new Mr Darcy locket necklaces to add to my upcycled book range of accessories.  Each locket has had one "window" inset with a snippet of text from Jane Austen's famous novel which includes the words "Mr Darcy".  I am planning to make more locket necklaces (including some round ones) but I am waiting on my new shipment of necklace chains to arrive before I can do much more.  So this is my "crafting with sickies" creative space.  What have you been making this week?
