Crafting at Happy’s

Crafting at Happy’s.

Look what I have been upto this week…Yep! I decided to save some money and make my own Father’s Day cards…I have been known to spend upto around £5.00 on one card before…so I thought nope! I can make some of my own…and I got quite into making them straight away…

I used my printer to print off some pictures and the right words…I then tore the words and picture around the edges and glued them all into place….I then placed the card onto my machine and sewed around the edges.

I sewed messily on purpose, because I wanted to create this handmade look…surprisingly the machining turned out really well and I was so pleased with how it turned out.  I also made a Grandad Card for Rosie to give to her Grandad and also a DAD card and a Hubby Card…I was going to take pictures of them all, but before I could they were all whisked away and written on and put into envelopes!LOL!

I also made this lovely 18th Birthday card for one of Rosie’s friends…made with pretty papers and a copy of one of my sewing patterns…

Also this week…I have listed my lovely vintage handmade by ‘me’ holdalls they are absolutely divine and I want to keep them all! but have added them to my SHOP reluctantly! 🙂  (These have all sold now)

The one above is made with this lovely 1940’s barkcloth…it is such a lovely print…and soooo Happy 🙂

….and this one above is made from Rosie’s favourite material…infact I know she has her eye on one of these! 😉

Have a Grrrreat Weekend Gals…


This is his little card collection…Bless!
