Ever since seeing photo this photo on Pinterest I have been on the lookout for a suitable top and tie so I give this idea a whirl. Last week I was lucky and found the grey top on the reduced to £1.00 rail and the tie came in a bag of donations I was sorting.
I have to admit to being really pleased with how it's looking, not being the most talented or patient crafty person around. It's all just held in place with pins at the moment as I don't have a sewing machine. The tutorial uses a button to secure the end of the tie, I may do this or perhaps use a brooch.
S was busy in her own creative way on Monday, first of all we baked these mini muffins. We used milk instead of buttermilk and golden syrup as we didn't have any maple syrup. The recipe made up 24 delicious bite size mini muffins which are best eaten the same day or the next but definitely no later than that. She also made this jellyfish, it was all her own idea to use a hole punch enabling her to thread pipe cleaners through as she wanted it to have ears.
Finally is a little brooch I made the other week. I bought the belt buckle from the Vintage fair I went to, back in February, for 50p. The pink material was from a baby dress I had bought ages ago at a jumble sale because I liked the pattern and the button was from my button box. Just noticed the colours match S's jellyfish, maybe we should attach it for a bit of recycled accessorising.
