cutters and buttons and things!
Finally l have bought myself a rotary cutter and isn't "she" pretty?! Wonder if by being pretty instead of plain, will make the cutting easier and or faster? Just a thought!x
And here are just some of the small "pockets" that l finished last night, that are waiting to be added to another wall hanging. Hope you enjoy seeing them as l really enjoy the time it takes to make each. I have really got into this idea of "slow cloth" work. Some of the material l use l design and make myself, others l buy stuff from Charity Shops, cut them up and also salvage the buttons. I am always on the outlook for Material Shop Sales that are selling off cheap but good quality cotton pieces. Also when l have finished with a piece of clothing or can't wear it any more( dam weight!Ha!) l will re-cycle it into my material bin! Nothing is ever wasted in my house if humanly possible, it also helps that l am a horder! Although poor Tony wishes l wasn't some times!
I have decided to make this last one into a brooch and not add it to a wall hanging!.
