Fimo Bead Keyring with Tassel

I requested FIMO for Christmas in 2017... it's taken me until now to actually make something with it!  This is the first time I've used FIMO since I was a kid!

I just had the sudden desire to make some beads and turn them into a little keyring / bag charm kind of thing!  One of those pretty but pointless items really...

I used pink and white FIMO to make the plain beads, then mixed some of both to make the marbled bead.  I already had some lobster clasps in my craft room, and some leftover Kingcole Cottonsoft yarn in just the right shade of pink for the tassel!

This brings me immense pleasure - I'm not sure quite why!  I just love it.

Next time I use FIMO I'm going to have to be more careful about dust, as I ended up working some dust into the FIMO and struggled to get rid of it.  But for a quick project, whipped up on a whim, I'm happy!

Yarn Hoop Wall Hanging

I mentioned in the post, My Current WIPs, back in January, that I wanted to finish this wall hanging...

Which, as you can see, I have!  It doesn't look much different from the picture in my WIP post.  In the end I just wetted the yarn to straighten it out.  I left everything else the same.

It is made by attaching two hoops together with yarn, which you can see at the top, incorporating a hanging loop.

I then strung some old beads I had between the two hoops and added a fringe of yarn to the bigger hoop.

Here it is, hanging in Emily's bedroom...

It is made using leftovers from Emily's heart blanket I made for her before she was born.

The idea for this hanging came from my friend Kimberly of Swoon Worthy Blog - she made this sophisticated version which I copied in a less classy fashion!
