So, after we finished making crayons I started thinking about what else I could do with crayons.
One major problem with kids and crayons is finding an odd one lost somewhere, treading on dropped crayons is close to stepping on lego.
I wanted a way of keeping the crayons together.
I thought of an apron, with crayons at the bottom, but the practicality of this wasn’t great.
Then I thought of a toy, with each leg holding a crayon.
I bought a mini artist chalk refill pack from the Early learning centre, they do crayon ones too, but didn’t have any in store.
Then I made Chalky…
Anyway, the pattern is on Ravelry, but if you’re not on Ravelry (and why not?) here is the pattern.
Chalky the Spider
I’m thinking the same thing.
Another post in such a short time!
This is the third video and I think I’ll have a break for a short while before I make another one.
This time it’s to make a fabulous Notebook necklace from polymer clay.
It only uses white clay, but has a few tools. If you make jewellery you should have most of the tools needed. You’ll also need a necklace chain if you want to turn it into a necklace. You could even turn it into a ring.
Hope you like it.
Ah, this is much better.
Making videos is so much quicker than taking photos of every step.
This is a tutorial on another one of my favourites Egg & bacon.
It’s a quick and easy make with a good outcome which people will love.
Hope you enjoy it (excuse the rambling about the dentist)
I made a tutorial with polymer clay a long time ago and some of you asked for more.
Well, thanks to a very welcome grant I can now make videos.
My first, hopefully of many…
Polymer Clay Pepperoni Pizza.
It doesn’t need a lot of tools, mostly made by hand, so perfect for those of you new to polymer clay.
Needle tool or sewing needle
3 in 1 pliers or wire cutter, round nose pliers
Bit of scrap paper
Clay Colours Used: (all Sculpey Premo!)
Faber & Castell soft pastel number 182
Anyway, let me know what you think, follow me on YouTube and keep checking back for more posts.
