A Guide to re-gaining Your MOJO
Good Morning All you lovely Crafters.
Do you ever get stuck in a rut with your paper crafting? I know I do - I thinks it's called losing your MOJO.
Well mine went for a walk and has only just come back thanks in part to the lovely TILDA ANGELS.
I bought the Tilda Sew Pretty Homestyle book some time ago and just flicked through it now and again - it's a great coffee table book - looking at the oh so pretty pictures.
Then one day, not long ago, in a land far away - STOP..STOP! I'm getting carried away with this Angel theme. Anyway whilst MOJO was gone I decided to have a go at making one of the Angels - just a prototype to see how easy/hard they were.
And this is Angel Prototype:
I was quite pleased with her and made Angel Proper...
and here she is:
The patterns in the book are easy to follow and the right size, no messing about enlarging etc.
I know the kits to make these can be rather expensive but I made mine from remnants of material and for the hair I used bobbly wool.
These are the ingredients for my Angels:
Body: Curtain lining or any plain material with a hint of beige/brown colour.
Clothes: Felt for jumper, shoes and rose/leaves and wings. Remnant of material for skirt
Hair: Any type of bobbly wool.
Stuffing for the body.
You don't necessarily need a sewing machine, in fact I stitched Angel Proper's face by hand, I found it too difficult with the machine.
There are so many more wonderful projects in this book I'm trying the strawberry cushion next.
By the way MOJO made a welcome return.
