Polymer Clay

I needed a break from Sewing. Well, not really, but I wanted to try something new. So, the last couple of nights instead of sewing I worked with polymer clay.
I had totally forgotten how much fun it is. We used to make all kinds of things when we were kids.

This time I used Sculpey, but I think Fimo is equally good. It's basically Playdough you can bake in the oven. I first tried myself on some buttons. The bigger ones are about 1.25 inches and the two smaller ones 1 inch. I think they will look pretty as accents on one of the next dresses for my girls. I used thread spools to cut the circles for the buttons and tooth picks to poke the holes.

And then I made a set of bottlecap necklaces for the girls. I think they turned out cute for a first try.

Also, Yanic had a lot of fun crafting with me. He made a bottlecap necklace for himself: "Y" with hockey stick and puck.

Proudly wearing it on our excursion to a farm this weekend.
