Inspiration really can come from anywhere but for me when I’m in hobby craft I get it a lot, mainly because I have an inherent refusal to spend lots of money on things much preferring the challenge of doing it myself. After all once upon a time someone had to of worked it out lol
Today’s “I’m not paying that” inspiration came in the felting section. I do love felting and have just started needle felting and with huge success. They had some plastic stencils to help you create felting shapes. That gave me the use to use cookie cutters so when I got home I had a play.
As they came out so well I decided to use this technique to make myself a new cover for my diary. I love contemporary embroidery ad shall be exploring it while working in this piece, I do feel that a felted back ground will add some lovely colours and texture.
