I finished another of the little circular badges today, and this one is inspired by the Throne of Glass series by Sarah J Maas.
The antlers are in green because green is one of the official colours for Terrasen, which is the country where the main character is from in the book.
I used a different technique for finishing the badge to the Magnus Chase one. I glued the fabric over a circle of paperboard and glued the felt (with the safety pin sewn on) onto the back.
I reckon this method will result in less fraying, but I’m not sure about the strength of the glue alone.
Although I’m not sure that really matters, because I think I love these badges a little too much to pin them somewhere they could get damaged, so for now they stay near their books.
Anyways, see ya!
I hope all the dads out there have a great day.
This week I went to a local book swap, and swapped three of my unloved books for three shiny, new-to-my-shelves books that I had read and loved.
I am a big fan of Sarah J Maas’ work, after a friend introduced me to the Throne of Glass series. Aren’t the covers beautiful?
Even the spines are pretty.
I did a little re-arrange so they’d fit on the fantasy shelf, and I’m very pleased to have them.
I cut a heap of little horse pictures out from a ‘picture a day’ calendar I had years ago, and I didn’t know what to do with them all for a long time, until today.
I used about half of them to cover this box.
I left the sides with a bit of white, so it wasn’t overwhelmingly horsey.
This picture is one of my favourites…
…as is this one.
I use the box to store things like pens and desk ornaments, so the top of my craft desk is less cluttered.
Now, what to use the other half of the pictures for…
Anyways, see ya!
In the Southern Hemisphere, August 1 is the Horses’ Birthday.
So share a treat (or two… or three) with your four-legged friends today.
