A Star

Hello All-hope the sun is shining where you are. The forecast says snow for us this weekend and it is very cold at the moment so maybe the white stuff isn't far away. Hope you are having a nice crafty day.

I decided to venture into Inchies when I saw one on Hazel's blog. I hadn't realisesd how difficult it is to make something so small so here is my poor effort for the challenge at Every Inchie Monday where the theme is a Star.


I made the inchie in felt and did some random sewing around the edges. The star shape is cut out in card and embossed with some mixed up embossing powder. I added it to the card with a heart shaped brad. Then I stitched a red sequin to each corner.

I did get a book called Inchies for my birthday-printed by Search Press and costs £6.99. I will read it before the next inchie challenge and maybe get a better idea of how to make them.

Love Chrissie xx

  5. They are extremely small aren't they, twinchies are too small for me so I have no chance with an inchie!!!
