Little bit of fun

Do you remember way back when, those craft kits you would get around Christmas time to make ornaments with?

Little felt cut outs - and you would sew sequins on them and doll em up with a bit of embroidery. I found a zip lock baggy full of those sequence, plus little push pins and beads that you can use on a Styrofoam ball to make ornaments from as well.

I was asked to make some whimsical items. Hrm - *think think* I want to make something small, something ornamental and I thought - bobby pin. Why not. So I played with some of the sequins from the bag, and a few buttons, and a few crystals and here is what I came up with.

Not quite done with the idea - they need to be bigger, bolder, better.

Stay tuned!!!
