Before this site was JenKimMade it was called Craftiness Now: since then I’ve expanded to blogging about food and flowers, etc., but I’ve kept a fondness for crafting. Lately I’ve been needle-felting little animals, like the Christmas penguins, Henrietta Lamb and Buttons the kitten above. And what better way to ‘crafternoon’ than with girlfriends? We had a #pinspired party on Saturday to do projects we’ve been meaning to get to from Pinterest, and everyone had great ideas.Emily was the most gracious host and fed us well with lots of savory treats:
and Louisa and Katie followed up with sweets:
I had my felting corner and tried not to prick myself too much on the bunny body below:but Emily had the most ambitious and brave project: removing the bottom of a wine bottle with acetone, yarn and flame!In a few hours we had many completed projects:
Emily and I made the mercury glass with Krylon Looking Glass Mirror-Like spray paint and vinegar, and my pink bunny came home to the other felted animals until they found their new owners: the kitten to a chef for her real-life cat Button, the narwhal to an editor who doesn’t believe they exist and Leopolda in the pink scarf to my college roommate to join her other German white teddy bears.I’m sure this won’t be our last crafting party!
