Bone Appetit

I had big hopes of working on a project today and even possibly starting on the finishing. Boy was I wrong! I have always admired mail art (stitched envelopes) so I was all set to start that project today. Problem #1). It did not specify what fabric count to use. Problem #2). The size they gave for the fabric to be cut out was too small. Well, I should not say too small, it just didn't leave enough room for me to finish it comfortably. There was less than a 1/4 inch of extra fabric. I like for mine to have plenty of extra on the sides. I can always trim excess off the fabric...I can't add fabric to it! All in all it was a complete mess. *Sigh* This isn't a good way to start off the week.

I do have a little something to share. I made this cute little fob for Renee. It is from Lizzie*Kate and called Halloween Thrillogy. I really like how it turned out! I haven't actually mailed it out yet since Renee just moved to Texas and I want to make sure she is getting her mail before I send it out.

Oh, I love the little fob. That boiling pot is too cute. Great job. Sorry about the mail art. I've done some things like that in the past, wondering exactly what was I thinking!

I am sorry you couldn't make your mail art :-/ I hate it when the instructions are not good enough for you to complete the project.

On the up side, that fob is adorable!

That's an adorable ornament, Dawn!

Sorry about your bad mailart experience. I've never tried before. Hopefully you'll try it again one day and it will work out great!
