Ring mad

So i have made another beaded ring which i am really really happy with. Not sure whether to put it in my etsy shop or to wait for the craft fair. I am also working on a basket order which is in such fantastic fabric it will be a shame to see it go.

Not only that but I have just finished painting the chimney breast in the living room. We had a new fire place put in a few months ago and i have only jsut got round to decorating the wall. I was inspired to do it after buying a fantastically mad lamp and a fluffy bean bag. When the room is finished i will post pictures.
I also want to try my hand at fabric covered canvases so that i have something original for the wall. I bought two blank ones for my children the other week and they had such fun painting them to put on their walls. I thought it would be a funky idea to buy some designer fat quarters off Ebay in maybe a Martin miller fabric (s) and cover four small canvases and put them on the wall as a whole piece of art, in an Andy Warholesque fashion. I have just been reading up on it in the MArch edition of Sewing World and it looks a really exciting thing to do. Although i need a staple gun!!! Even though andrew works for a design company apparently they dont own one that i can borrow, so ebay here we come.

Anyway here are some photos of the ring.

Sorry about the last photo an experiment on photoshop that went wrong. Anyway if anybody likes my rings i was thinking of writing a tutorial on how i make them. Obviously not difficult as i wouldnt be able to do it. I will give away the finished ring to a random person who comments on that particular post. Anyway let me know

Happy Easter

  1. I really love those rings. I bet there would be many people interested in learning how to make these. Me, I don’t need yet another craft to do, since I’m drowning in knitting and writing projects, trying to fit making music in every day. Also I’m stuck on my sewing because I’m intimidated by the bag I wanted to make next. I can’t even make up my mind if I want to cut out the pattern or trace it to tissue paper so that I don’t destroy the original pattern…

    We seem to have a similar taste in color, your orange, and red, and green rings appeal to me very much.

    And framing some fat quarters for decoration seems like a fantastic idea.

  2. That sounds like a great idea. Have you tried dental floss for sewing them on? It’s super super strong and easier to use than wire (just a thought). I love that latest green one, a giveaway is a great idea (as long as I win)

  3. I’d love to see a tutorial on making your beautiful ring. Thanks for offering!
