My Christmas Gift for the Swap.
Its safe to show you my gift now for the Christmas Decoration Swap ran by Marsha at http://sassyminidolls.blogspot.com/ because it has arrived with my partner. Here's a link to my swap partner Moriah at http://mlbetterly.blogspot.com/ I love Moriahs work, its amazing!
For some days i played around with trying to make a large candle with an elecrtic tealight inserted that flickered. I wanted the candle to have a face similar to my miniature candles but more detailed. I tried and tried for days, each step kept going wrong and in the end gave up. I know it would have been lovely but really struggled to work in such a large scale.
So i made a stocking instead. The candycanes and gingerbread are polymer clay. The foil wrapped sweets can be eaten. I dyed the material myself and used my mini sewing machine (£30 one in previous posts to sew it together... great machine).
Next year i'll try for that candle again!
