butter and blush
I created this birthday crown adorned by golden butter and blush butterflies for a little girls third birthday. Hand dyed felts, golden thread, a little wool to pad out the butterflies and one of my favourite Heather Ross fabrics. I do love it. I must give credit to this lovely lady, as my inspiration came from these beautiful crowns (made by Zuzu & Me).
My creative time has become very limited since Milly arrived in this world (understandable). Which makes the few times I do sit down to create, all that much more enjoyable. My biggest problem is wanting to make so much, that when I sit down, I don't know which project to begin....do you have that problem? I also find that you need time to get creative....to match fabrics, to sort through different shades of felt, to trace and cut pattens........and to just generally get into a creative mindset.
My list for Christmas crafting usually is rather long, however this year I am keeping it simple. I am making Abbie an oliver + s dress ice-cream dress, as she has almost well and truly outgrown this one I made a while back. I am working on an advent calendar (using matchboxes based on this idea here) and have almost finished a little sleeping dolly for Milly. Once this list is done, and all the other Christmas preparations finished I may craft a little more, we'll see.
What are you making for Christmas? Oh and tell me, how do you prioritise your craft/ sewing/ knitting projects?
