It normally starts with either day dreaming or some tidying up. This time it was tidying up the new chest of drawers in my craft room and the putting away of all my papers for envelopes.
'It's a pity that the pictures on these knitting patterns are too big to make gift tags out of' thought I. Then I spotted the back of a different pattern poking out (it evidently wanted to be used) and the cartoon light bulb went off in my head.
So out came my trusted tag punch and some papers were punch from knitting patterns.
The waste was put away into the recycling bin too! Aren't I a good girl!
My favourite bit is choosing pretty colours to work with.
Some doodles of balls of wool with needles were drawn onto a spare bit of pattern.
And eventually transferred to some of the actual paper tags (card and string will come later) Once I got to this stage though I wasn't sure - do they still look enough like balls of wool?
I drew one tag with two balls on to see if that made me happier and it did a bit but I'm still not sure - especially after Anya looked at the yellow ones and said I like your new bumble bee tags mummy!
What do you think? You can see the full size photographs on my Flickr if you still can't decide. It's whether enough people at craft fairs will recognise them as balls of wool.
