Yesterday, I was unable to resist the siren call of polymer clay. I know, weird. What’s polymer clay? It’s that fun adult plasticine, or modeling clay, that sets once you bake it in the oven. I got myself some of the stuff the other day, along with some inexpensive modeling tools and jewelry findings. What was I up to?
No, not earrings to bejewel myself with. Or knick knacks. Lately, I’ve had a hankering for colourful, fun stitch markers! I found myself fascinated with them.
I have to say, I’m lucky to have some fun stitch markers already, but with designing, there’s multiple projects on the go simultaneously, and you guessed it… a lack of stitch markers!
So I made several experiments, since I am not familiar with working with polymer clay. I brought out my best pre-school memories of working with clay. And I baked stuff. Finally, I came up with something that worked… puppy stitch markers! I made four of them for now. Although six would be nice! I do have more colours to play with, after all.
But I focused, putting my attention deficit inclinations to the side for now. I was mighty pleased with myself. I admired their tails, too.
And then my next favourite part, their mouths as little ‘o’s of surprise.
So I now have a new set of stitch markers. I somehow doubt I will stop at one set… there’s a whole animal kingdom and more to explore.
What do you think?
