It was a miserable day here yesterday (still is today) and being confined indoors, I was looking for a small project to fill in the time.
I then remembered this key. It's the key to my shed (studio) and this is how the builder gave it to me approx three years ago on the day he finished - attached to a tag with our names on it. I've always intended to make some sort of key ring for it but never got around to it. Yesterday was the day.
In Marg Low's book, Things I love to Make, there's a little Birdie Trinket and I thought that would be perfect for my shed key.
I had some of the Anni Downs' fabric left over from my Flyaway project which I thought would be perfect. I have to confess that my choice of fabric was influenced by the wool felt I had in my stash - rather than the other way round. I made a twisted cord in a matching thread as a substitute for the ribbon and I also substituted template plastic for the cardboard listed in the pattern.
It is a very quick project and is done entirely by hand which was just what I wanted.
My key now looks much more respectable hanging on the key holder in the shed next to a doll I made years ago and my Welcome hanger.
Thanks Marg for a lovely design.
Until next time
PS We had a big sporting weekend here. First there was a great game of rugby (union) with the Reds playing the British and Irish Lions. Can't wait for the test matches!
Then Nadal won the French Open for the 8th time. What a legend.
But the best part - Serena Williams won the French Open. What a star.
