It all started innocently enough with some hand-dyed wool felt. Then I found the perfect match in a print called “woodland bloom”. And it deteriorated rapidly as I went through my stash of crafting goodies.
First came the beaded mushrooms. Then the gnomes. Then the bangle and more mushrooms. And then I needed a box to contain them all.
The box is an unpainted wood box from the craft store that I primed then painted. I cut cardboard to size and covered it with padding and fabric then attached a felt flower in the center to give it a more quilted look. I then glued the whole thing to the lid. Inside is a little picture frame that I painted and added fabric as the "picture".
The little bangle was made using Moki’s method, but I used a round wooden disk with fabric. The “bloom”, like the “woodland” in the tiny frame, came from the selvedge of the fabric.
I still think a snail is needed though… stay posted.
