Crafting 2016 -Shrugs

I love wearing shrugs. I made myself two new ones.


The pattern was free ( and very easy to follow.

One problem I have with shrugs and boleros is they tend to fall off the hanger. With some that I have brought I use the label to loop over the top of the hanger. Not long after I made these I sewed a little bit of ribbon into the next to loop over the top of the hanger. I now plan to sew ribbon into other clothes that fall of the hanger.



Crafting 2016 – Five Loaves and Two Fish


Years ago I had a kit to make angels (as Christmas decorations), which I made up and gave away to friends. I saved the pattern and last year made myself some in silver. When handling the silver fabric it reminded me some much of fish that I decided to make 5 loaves and 2 fish to help tell the bible story of Jesus feeding the 5000. (Instructions and templates below)


Ohhh and here are the angels.
