with photos of my scrappy crafting this month.
For me, it was another patchwork project using 2.5″ squares. I like to prep these squares from scraps each time I’ve got small pieces of leftover fabric, so no matter how many projects I make, the 2.5″ square box keeps on filling up. Anyway, this is just a simple zippy pouch because I found myself in need of a zippy pouch for Miss Viking. The husband and I had been busy painting. I had bought in a packet of Baker Ross wooden bugs, that the husband painted and we turned them into “games tiles”.
There were 100 bugs in 10 different designs, so the husband painted in 5 different colour-ways so that bugs can be used for different games: memory game; spot the difference; odd one out; or simply counting. The wooden bugs were a bit fragile so the scraphappy part here was me cutting cardboard tiles from a couple of old shoe boxes.
Anyway, they all fitted nicely in the zippy pouch with a bit of room left over. So . . . I added a “Tic Tac Toe” board (OXO to some) and 10 of my hand-painted insects. Remember the voile curtains I had to shorten & hem recently? Well, I kept the bits I chopped off and bees’ wings are made from those. I varnished a piece, giving it several coats of varnish, let it dry and cut out the wings before gluing them onto the bees.
