I’ve met a lot of wonderful people through craftgrrl. I take a lot of inspiration from their cool craftiness. Finding that community is actually what first introduced me to sewing bags and purses.
One of my pals, lauralita44 has bought a wristlet from me and so generously made me some cool little straight pins. She made them using shrinkable plastic, Shrinky Dinks!! Remember those? I think we did them like once when we were kids. But nothing quite like this. She packed ’em up real nice too.
She made me little birdies, a tree, a heart, even a cupcake and a hearing aid! Very sweet. I love it that they are cute and functional and totally fun.
