Yeah, I have my new camera (when I will see my lap top, who knows). Let the Christmas sharing begin ;-) So my inspiration this year was blogs like Wee Wonderful, Allsorts, Inspireco, Loobylu, Posie Gets Cozy. To me when I think of these blogs, I think of rick rack, pom-poms, gingham, yo-yo's, polk-a-dot's and lots of red. I looks to these elements to inspire me. Also, as I am sure the rest of you, I have to spend as little as possible. I really needed to use what I had or make the most of what I bought.
I started with a pound of cheap red yarn and made a bunch of pom-pom's. From little to giant. Also small bits of fabric. I was going to make yo-yo's but I found it easier (since I made a lot) to cut small strips and gather them into rosette's. I left the edges raw.
The first thing I made was a garland. I simply left long yarn tails on my pom-poms and tied them together. Then glued the rosette's to the yarn. I love the green and red candy stripped fabric with the red polk-a-dots. Speaking of garlands go check out Nesting Place Garland Show and Tell. I will be back with more xoxox
