Ooh, look at us socialising and sharing!
Hi, I’m Natasha.
Ooh, look at me welcoming you to my creative blog, where I will introduce you to all the fun, creative and crazy things I get up to.
I am a wife and a mother to my 3 children and 2 dogs, so you can imagine how chaotic it can get in our house.
“Ooh, look at me!” is an ironic name because I actually don’t like drawing attention to myself or my family, yet I really like inspiring others to be creative because I know how fulfilling it can be. The name also comes from something silly we used to say years ago and it kind of just stuck with me.
Check out our About Us page for more information about us and what we do.
I hope this brings you creative joy
Let’s get yarning and creative!
Ooh, look at me going on a creative journey with you!
Or, you can
Children’s Felt Bags - with cross stitch design
I kept seeing kits for kids to make items out of felt, which gave me the idea to make two bags myself. I already had some felt and I purchased a value pack of pillow cases for the inlay, as well as a small eyelet hole punching set to thread the draw cord through. I even put a pocket on the inside.
Korey’s Bag Story
Korey (and Kameron) were both obsessed with Monster Jam and Monster Trucks. I stitched the Monster Truck design on as I went (without any pre-drawn design), using simple cross stitches. I also added his name. I think the finished result was really good and Korey loved it.
Kameron’s Bag Story
Kameron is a huge fan of Knight Rider (next to Action Man & Monster Trucks, of course). I thought I would attempt to stitch it on and as usual he asked if I could put a watch on Michael Knight’s arm for when he has to talk to KITT. He also requested for Michael Knight to be wearing a green shirt (because, like me, his favourite colour is green).
I think that both these bags were really good for my first attempt and no design to follow.
I hope this brings you creative joy and inspires you to start your own thread-tastic journey.
Please share and connect with us on social media. I would love to hear from you and see your creations.
