Old shoulder pad + scissors = cut up shoulder pad and a piece of foam for an ink pad.
Milk bottle lid…and there’s my ink pad.
Got my letters lined up and ready to go.
This afternoon I was lettering some 6cm x 4cm tags from a recycling paper experiment from a few months ago.
Needles Hooks Pins
Adding images to the opposite side of the tags.
About a year ago, I hollowed some books. The paper I made was from those recycled scraps. That paper was made into tags. I had saved the most interesting images during the hollowing out process, and I used these in the tags.
This was the wee store I had on the 25th at Metro Cafe. If you look closely, you can see the tags made from hollow books, on the hollow books. I love circles.

I am continually grateful to everyone who supports and encourages my work, and it's a big ask, I know. But creativity and pattern development takes time and money. Any spare change you can throw this way goes directly towards makin' all that amigurumi good stuff and is hugely treasured by me, for ever. Thanks again for everyone's support, physical, spiritual or monetary!
