Gold Glitter Pompon Bag

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/d05/8729327/files/2015/01/img_0157.jpg
Hi everybody! This is my contribution against winter depression. Tomorrow I start my new job and I wanted to have a new bag to carry my lunch every day. It should be bright, colourful and a real eye-catcher in all this grey and unpleasant January weather outside. I decided for a white cotton bag and painted it with glitter polkadots. Yay! For extra brightness I attached small pompons in my current fav colours. Didn’t it turn out cute? I love it very much.

So here’s how you can make one for yourself. You’ll need:

– white cotton bag
– fabric painter in gold glitter
– circle stencil or something similar as a big button
– pencil
– piece of cardboard
– for the pompons: yarn, pompon-maker and Bakers Twine

Let’s get started:

– First iron the cotton bag. Then lay it out flat and insert the cardboard.
– Draw the circles onto the fabric with thin pencil lines. I used a big button for it. If you’re not sure where to draw the circles you can make circle- templates out of coloured paper first and lay them out onto the bag. So you can play around with the positions before you finally draw the circles.
– Paint the circles with the fabric painter. Let it dry completely an iron it from the backside. Now it will be fixed and washable.
– If you like, make 3 pompons and attach them with Bakers Twine on your bag.

I hope you enjoy this one as much as I do. Have fun and happy moments!

Pompon Key Charms

/home/wpcom/public_html/wp-content/blogs.dir/d05/8729327/files/2014/12/img_0120.jpg
Hi everyboday! For it’s the last day of the year, I wanted it to end colourful. These pompon key charms were the result. Aren’t they cute?

All you need is a bit of leftover yarn in candy colours to make the pompons. When you have three of them, cut them in shape for a nice and neat look. Attach Bakers Twine, in matching colours if you have at hand, and add some beads. Tie everything together – and that’s it.

I wish you all a very happy new year full of inspiration, creativity and fun. Making beautiful things and following your inspiration is a great way to enjoy life – so keep on being creative and enjoy the new year as much as you can. Read you in 2015!
