Needlefelted cuff bracelet and altered book…


I’ve been working on this bracelet for the bazaar, the center of the flower is a sparkly button and the bracelet closes with a magnetic snap. It is very comfortable to wear and easy to get on and off…I can’t wait to run it past the bazaar ladies next week and get their input! I have a few more of these in the works. (gotta hurry here the sun is out and I have to get outside!)


I’ve been working on altering this book for the library store.


I added a recycled three ring binder thingy to the spine…(thank you Julie for keeping your eyes peeled for these binders to recycle!!!)


Covered the inside of the front cover and back cover with scrapbook paper and also added a couple pocket pages. My dilemma is what to do with the outside? I kinda like it just the way it is…and yet I wonder what it would/could look like all painted and sanded…I’m really torn…so I’ll probably just leave it as is. I can experiment on another book that doesn’t have such a clean cover.

Now I have to get outside and pressure wash the decks again! It’s been days and days since we’ve had any sunshine…even though I hate redoing a job that was already done (and done well)…it’ll be nice to be outside!!!! Yippee!!!

Happy Crafting!!!

I like the binder, that turned out pretty darn cute. The bracelet is amazing. Hey I have an idea for you though I don't know if it will work or not. I have those slap bracelets that are not decorated if you'd like to try and felt around one maybe that would be cool.
Have a great trip to Brainerd. Chat later on. Take care my friend. Blessings!!
