Felt Rings

Felt Rings

Felt Rings Mollie Makes kitMy Mollie Makes kit crafty resolutions continues! This week I wanted to make the felt rings. I really wish that I could make the kit so that they look as lovely as the images on the packet but never seem to quite achieve it!

Again the templates are available on the Mollie Makes Makespot which makes it so much easier to make.

I found this quite a quick but somewhat difficult project. I am not a sewing expert. I don’t have a glue gun or any glue that would work with fabric. This meant more sewing which meant more puncture wounds in my fingers!

Two of the rings work. But I don’t quite know what went wrong with the grey one. I think that I’d just had enough & wanted to be done. I was hungry & wanted to get on with my knitting! But I’m glad they’re done. Making the kits is definitely helping me with my sewing. I’m getting much better at sewing in straight lines so it’s totally worth making them.

What crafty bits have you been up to this weekend? x

Knot Necklace Kit

I’m trying desperately to keep up with my crafty resolutions and while my knitting ones may be slipping drastically, my Mollie Makes one is moving full steam ahead. This week I fancied making something new to wear so I opted for the Knot necklace kit.

I used the templates from the Making Spot so that I could draw them on the felt & cut around them. This was much easier than trying to trace them from the magazine. Then, once I’d finished cutting out all the flowers, I needed a tapestry needle. I had no idea if I had one but started going through my sewing kit. The good thing about my sewing kit is that I inherited it from my very crafty Nana. My Nana’s sewing kit has come to my rescue so many times! And lo and behold it didn’t let me down this time either. I had a choice of three needles. Perfect!

Tapestry Needles

It was quite difficult getting the cord through the felt at times & I think it’ll take my fingers a few days to recover, but once they do I know it’ll be worth it.

I found this project pretty easy. While it took a few hours, it didn’t take as long as I’d thought it might. Using the templates from the PDF on line was a really good way to start. I’m so glad that Mollie Makes does this. It makes crafting much easier. Whether my necklace is good enough to wear remains to be seen! But I’m glad I’ve done it. Wonder what I’ll make next week! x
