Needle felted baby rattle by Milo & Ben

While browsing the internet this morning I came across this fabulous tutorial by Melissa, from Milo & Ben for an adorable needle felted whale rattle. I have not done much needle felting, but Melissa makes it seem so easy and this rattle is so cute, I think I will have to give it a try. I will keep you updated with my attempts. Have a look at Melissa’s other needle felted creations on her Etsy page or check out her blog.

Ikat bag – felt cake

I was browsing some of my favourite sites today on the internet and found this great tutorial to make  a dreamy felt cake with zero calories at ikat bag. I love that the decorations are all changeable depending on the occasion or your mood and that you can serve a single slice.  I will definately be adding this to my someday project list.

girl with her red umbrella

 

Amsterdam has been cold and rainy of late and instead of being miserable and complaining about the rain, I thought why not make something fun to cheer up those rainy days. Girl with the red umbrella reminds me of those childhood days when splashing in puddles and spinning our umbrellas in the rain was lots of fun. I promise a tutorial for her will follow real soon. In the mean time, remember you are never too old to splash in puddles…
