Dog toy

Since I already had my polyfill out, today I decided to try a no-sew toy for one of my mom’s dog. I used a piece of fleece found at a second-hand store and a “squeaky” plastic thing I found in my stash (from all the sewing stuff my godmother gave me years ago.)

I had to do a bit of sewing because my knots didn’t cover the inner curve at the top but other than that, it’s all knots. The dog loved it so much he already started breaking it! Oh no! That’s okay, I learned my lesson and will try another design for him.


I also continued doodling on the painted branch:


I guess I was in a zigzag mood today!

Free supplies – Fournitures gratuites

This year, I have decided to buy as little art/craft supplies as possible. Of course, once in a while, I can’t resist a pad of paper or a rubber stamp or (especially) decorative tape. But one supply I easily get for free is fabric. Not many big pieces, usually, but I don’t do big fabric projects most of the time anyway. Yesterday, I received this huge bag of fleece remnants and a smaller bag (in the back, about half the size of the big one but just as heavy) with fabric used for soccer jerseys. Can you imagine all the Kool Kreatures that will be born from this???

Cette année, j’ai décidé d’acheter le moins possible de fournitures d’art/artisanat. Évidemment, une fois de temps en temps, je ne peux résister une tablette de papier ou une étampe ou (surtout) du ruban adhésif décoratif. Mais une fourniture que je peux avoir facilement est du tissu. D’habitude, pas de très gros morceaux mais je ne fais pas de gros projets en tissu de toute façon. Hier, j’ai reçu cet énorme sac de restes de “polar” ainsi qu’un plus petit sac (derrière, environ la moitié du grand sac mais tout aussi lourd) avec du tissu utilisé pour faire des dossards de soccer. Pouvez-vous imaginer toutes les Kréatures Kools qui naîtront de ça???
