He's a bit annoying as he doesn't sit flat on the ground. If I made him again, I would sculpt his little tummy so his feet are more grounded. Otherwise...cute.

Air dry clay.
These little vessels need to dry first, then I plan to rub ink into them and wipe back to emphasis the layers.
I've rolled the clay then pressed it into my lino cuts. The bowl shape comes from pressing them into bowls from the kitchen.

I've wanted to stitch little labels into my home made gifts for some time but it all seemed a bit laborious and time consuming. Well, I found the time and with a bit of help from Mrs Google, I have made a variety of personalised labels.
Choosing what to say took a while. I didn't want them to sound too cheesy or inappropriate. So I came up with 'one of a kind' as no two gifts come out the same.
I used 'Pages' on my Mac. I put the text and image into a table. I reversed the text and images and printed onto Avery T-shirt transfer paper, cut each label out and ironed them onto cotton tape.

I have two friends who have bought retro bach's in the past year. To carry on with the theme, they get a hand knitted tea cosy each. I found a book in the library full of weird tea cosies. I knitted two that were fairly normal looking, as far as tea cosies go.

I finally plucked up the courage to sew the leather. I don't know what my apprehension was about because it sewed up quite easily. I used a few Googled directions that steared me in the right direction. I've added little rings on the sides so I can add a strap.

My fabric printing inks arrived. I have bought a litre of opaque base and 4, 100ml bottles of colour concentrate...black, red,yellow and blue.
I used the little wasp lino cut I made on the fibre art course, then a solid screen printing wasp.

I have been interested in sewing leather. I have used a small piece of soft (lambs?) leather to make the base of this little clutch.
I used an old grey woollen blanket as the body of the clutch and some beautiful silk as a liner. My intention is for Penny to use it to carry her phone and keys. It will also be able to accomodate a few other bits and bobs.
