It won't keep you warm but you may feel a little glow of glee.
Let me show you how to make funting. A funtorial?
You will need :One willing sewing machine (no tension seekers)
Some bias binding (or open-minded tape)
One fearless toy cupboard (get permission first)
If the sewing machine says yes then you can join the club or any suit really, even the jokers can play.
Now, nothing is safe...snap, lexicon, kan-u-go, countdown, monopoly money... I have even laminated some paper doilies to give them strength to carry on. I'm obsessed...sheet music, maps, comics, picture books...enough? I know it's just frippery but they look so cheery hanging around, don't you think?
And how about a no-sew quickie for that special person?
I can't get enough, I need more funtinspiration, am I going funtinsane? Any ideas ?
Moving swiftly on to 'The 12 Days of Thrifting' (see older posts). On the 4th day...
29 soldiers smiling, 4 builders trucks, 3 wooden trains, 2 baby trolleys, 1 dolls house and an articulated snake to scare me.
On the 5th day...10 Noah's pets, 3 spotty scarves, 2 easter eggs,
1 cottage jug, 1 working crane and a guardsman without a buzz-bee.
It is very handy having 15 charity shops in my little town.
Do you think that's excessive?
I could compile a nifty top fifty guide to the thriftiest towns in Britain
or I could just make more funting and hang loose.
What do you think?
Crafty ways make funting days.
