Every year this period I try to create our handmade gifts and especially my beloved lucky charms for the new year for my friends. And every year I want to create something unique, something especially for the new year and something totally different than the previous one. So, after my lucky charms with Cinnamon and the small clay houses and the charms with spools and wooden hoop I made last year, this year I wanted something cute, something with polka dots, something with fabric and ribbons, something with embroidery!
At the beginning there were only materials and especially the mini wooden hoops I have bought from Marmalena. There are so small and cute that I wanted definitely to use them for my gifts. Fabrics were the next step and what is best from my polka dots colored fabrics? So retro, so cute , so easy to create with them! And then I was tired… not physically but in my mind. Too many things to take care, too many things to handle and so little help… and I wanted something to relax me! Sewing definitely worked for me! A simple 2017 on my fabrics and I had both relaxed and my charms ready!
Last step? Ribbons and laces and pom pom and small stars and so many other! And my charms were exactly what I have imagined and what I need for the new year…something with color, something childish, something cute!
Soooo…what is you favorite? What charms have prepared for 2017???
