Today sees a new challenge over at Eclectic Ellapu and this week's challenge theme is Layering/Open-able/Interactive - mmmm.... I have been wanting to make a sleigh pin cushion for ages and with a bit of imagination my sleigh fits the bill... there are layers, it is interactive but not sure about the opening bit, but Elaine being the nice person she is said it would be ok.
So onto to sleigh which I throughly enjoyed making.
It is a bit of a work in progress and some of the pictures might not show all of the finished items. I started with a paper mache sleigh which I bought last year - I painted with while acylic paint, then I started to decorated it.
As you can see I used marabou feather trim around the edges of the top, WOC and Kort and Godt flowers, rose trim and sparkly bead trim - there is a stick pin peeking out of the flowers with a dangle.
At the front is a lovely silk ribbon, snowflake charm and a little jingle bell
I then made a pin cushion with some white satin fabic and had the most fun making some stick pins.
and then another view of the pins.
I hope you like my sleigh - it will have pride of place in my craft room.
Please drop over to Eclectic Ellapu and see what my team mate have come up - the standard is just getting higher and higher each week - I am really gobsmacked at how amazing the two DT are.
