Nah, of course it isn’t. *I* am Scissors & Smiles, and I am not paying myself to write this post, haha. But well, I do admit I feel a bit odd about advertising on my own behalf. However, Sue from Imfeelingthis Blog had asked me whether I was planning to upload the latest RA fabric onto Redbubble as she needed a new phone case. So I spent yesterday updating the Redbubble store. The phone cases are actually HERE. I was quite amused by the thought of that pattern in the bath – or on a comforter. How very literal! 😂
Anyway, as you can see I am listening to suggestions from readers. And hence I also spent this morning tinkering with some crafty stuff after Jackie had commented on my Instagram. I had been playing with mini books again and this time experimented with earrings. The first batch were mini books that are simply covered in colourful origami paper. When I posted them on my IG, Jackie pointed out that I might have opened a can of worms – for requests of mini books with actual book covers. I didn’t think it was possible, but I tried it nonetheless. Turns out – it *does* work.
The earrings are about a quarter of the size of the book pins. Quite fiddly, but it actually worked quite neatly with the Hobbit. I was disappointed, though, with the North & South earrings – I somehow made the cover too big, so I didn’t even attach them to an earring. Back to the drawing board it is.
Some of the others – unrelated to RA’s oeuvre – turned out nice, though.
Now I am hoping that my reordered fabric will arrive sometime this week so I can sew a few more masks…
By the way – if anyone has suggestions of book classics that would lend themselves for those brooches, please tell me. I am looking for books that are out of copyright and that are well-loved classics….
