Hi everyone, I’m starting to get back into my blogging as promised now that I am settled in my new shop! I’ve been preparing activities for the shop and decorations for my own home ready for Easter this weekend!
As you may know I manufacture my own MDF blanks (which are all available through my website or shop) so I have been playing with a few shapes this week.
Here is what I have been up to – Please let me know what you have been making and feel free to share any links or pictures to inspire each other 🙂
Easter Chicks Tutorial
*Apply Glue to MDF shape
*Place feathers onto glued areas
*Paint beak and feet
*Add a googly eye
Easter Bunny Tutorial
*Place MDF shape on top of fabric (I’ve used Shannon Rose Plush – you only need a 25x25cm piece available on this link for 95p)
If your brave and cut corners like me get stuck in with a sharp Stanley knife and cut around the shape (don’t forget to use a self healing mat) – preferable without stabbing yourself. Or you can draw around the shapes and cut with scissors.
*Repeat with the other side and glue onto the MDF shape
*Cut a strip to fit the size of the sides, my shapes is 18mm thick so I cut to this width then snip small sections to fit the curves – glue on.
*Add googly eyes and a button nose
All items I use can be found on my website http://www.essential-fabrics.co.uk/index.php/
