something new from something old

Remember these little cuties? I’ve been carrying them around for nearly a year, but sadly not many people have been willing to take them home.

“What do you do with them?” They would ask me.
“Uh… buttons? Jewelry? Stuff? Get creative!” I’d reply.

But I should know better by now. It’s not enough to have the supplies there. You need to help people figure out what to do with them either by providing patterns or examples. So I have finally started making SOMETHING with my “wee felt balls”. Here are my latest creations!

It’s exciting to be trying something totally different. Not knitting. Not spinning. Not weaving. Jewelry making! I’ve gone to several craft stores and stocked up on beads, findings, everything. Just playing and experimenting. I started with bracelets, but really I could just about make anything. We’ll see where this goes.
