The first real autumn storm rolled into Southern California this weekend and I was looking forward to the cold, wet weather. I also had the weekend to myself, woo-hoo!! I went to a local scrap booking store to learn more about paper crafting. I have not really done any paper crafting and I want to learn a bit more about it. There were some beautiful examples in the shop, but I felt a little overwhelmed. I ended up buying an over-priced magazine because it had some really cute projects and instructions included.
Located conveniently next door to the scrap booking store is a great local bar/restaurant called The Press. With a chill in the air, a great magazine in hand, and a rumble in my belly I headed over to The Press.
I ordered some chili and my favorite locally brewed beer, California Black Beer by Dale Brothers.
After my lunch and leafing through the magazine, I headed home ready to get a fire going and make something new.
Since I wanted to relax downstairs by the fire with the TV on I had to work on something that didn't require a sewing machine or an ironing board. So, I brought some felt and thread downstairs.
I tried making different felt flowers but they looked goofy, so I started on a project inspired by one in the magazine.
It is a personalized felt hair clip.
I started by cutting a rectangle of felt then with a sharpie wrote Mallory's name. I embroidered over the sharpie, then added some embellishment.
I also decided to add some holiday cheer to these little mittens I got for $1. at JoAnn's Fabrics.
