Hi Thanks to everyone who stopped by last week to give advice on Mr Rhodri Joggles - he decided that being a Gardener was his vocation !
So I made him a little gardening jacket & trousers - found him 2 upturned flowerpots to sit on, a spade & a fork - and a basket for all his garden produce !
Oh and a camera - as like me he loves to take a photo record of the garden in bloom (well if it ever stops raining long enough to snap a photo !).
I'm not sure I have his face right & may stitch on hair when I get back from my hols ( we're away next week yippee !!) and he needs a hat but I've no idea how to make one !! But at least he's on his way !
On the other side of my desk are the new "Beautiful" papers & brads & the other bits & bobs I have pulled together for my mother in law's scrapbook.
I love the picture of her holding my husband as a 1 year old baby - her dress is pure 1960 & I think she looks like a film star from that time !!
Question for you all - if I were to use Distress Inks on fabric (calico or Lutrador) and then stamp over them & use the fabric to decorate a plain felt tote bag I have bought - if the bag were to get wet (we are talking West Wales here - so think constant rain !!) would the inks run & the colours come off on my clothes ? Or are the inks fast once they are dry ? Or do I have to set them in some way ? All advice gratefully received !!
Have a great crafty week & hope the weather is better wherever you are than the chilly drizzle we have here Take care !!
