Matryoshka Felt Doll

First craft item of the day is....dun dun dun, a felt Matryoshka Doll. I made this last week then decided to give it my mum as a present and she said it looked like me! That's the thanks I got!

I managed to stab my finger with the felting needle as well whilst making this so I literally bled for my mother :P

Welcome to Banini-Crafts!

So, I've decided to start up a separate blog to showcase things that I have made in my spare time or soon to be part time job (hopefully).

A little about me:

My beads of choice are swarovski crystals since I like shiny stuff, initially I always made jewellery using string. Time consuming but worth it in the end if the item looks good! Too many times have I pulled the strings too tight and the whole piece looks distorted!

I'm also currently learning to crochet (hardest thing ever!) What's with all the different stitches to learn?!

What I would love to do tho is make silver jewellery using art clay. The method seems simple enough but will I be able to do it myself? I don't particularly want to waste any clay either cos that stuff is expensive!

Anyway enough rambling, let the blogging begin!
