When I set out to make a craft every day during the month of March last year, I never really explained myself. I'm not sure I can explain this even today. Definitely a celebration of craft month. Maybe all those blogs where people do something every day for a year and end up writing books (New Dress a Day) inspired me? Certainly, I wanted to see if I could. I must have needed a bit of a challenge. But perhaps somewhere deep down it was a response to all those people who are so busy they don't have tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiime to do things like you do. If I could find time every day, surely they could find a moment or two.
In this iteration of the craft-a-day, I've found myself sitting down later and later to do my projects. If I can make something between 8 or 9 pm and bedtime, surely those "without time" can manage a thing or two every now and again. (However, if you're the kind of person who needs to clean up after you craft, you will be appalled by the state of the craft room. And we're only half way through!)
these instructions for a bookmark. (I needed to consult both this tutorial on fabric flowers and this video.) By 9:40 I was done.
I also love that I am finally using this fabric! I loved it enough to buy it--and it's even better now that I'm using it because I get to share it! (This is part of the same fabric collection I used for my grandmother's tea wallet.)
I have taken up a project for today that will take me longer than 40 minutes. In fact, I've started already, but not too soon. I've got the evidence to prove that!
