Starfish and Buttonhole Stitches

Crafting My Best Life, continued…

DCF 1.0

One of the projects was a starfish of felt with arms to hold messages of love from those we hold dear – I had forgotten how cheerful red felt is! Specially with yellow buttonhole stitch. Now I want to make an ocean full of cheerful starfish!

Tags to remind me of goals, a book for journaling

But the main goal: mission statements. Business on the right, personal on the left. This is a box lid, for the class we decorated a shoe sized box to hold the projects. I didn’t have a shoe box handy so I used the box from a Diwali Barbie who now dances in my studio (and looks exactly like Aishwarya Rai).
