Helping Hand

My sister in law is having a craft day to raise some money for a charity called Caring For Life, I made up some felt flower corsage kits to make your own, for her to sell. I thought they would make ideal stocking fillers, or Christmas presents.A friend of mine is organising a baby shower for her sister in law. I made this fimo cake topper for her so that she could have it as a keepsake. It was my first attempt at making something like this and was a bit time consuming, but very enjoyable. Don't look to closely or else you will see some faults! Very difficult not getting fingernail marks and scratches into the fimo (modelling clay) when it is soft!

I dont know if you have seen these before? It is called a nappy cake, made up of nappies, breast pads, scratch mits, socks, cotton buds and hidden inside is a music box, which the duck on the top sits on. We completed it with ribbon, and I added a few finishing touches to bring the colour together, some flowers and feathers!
