Wow... one of my resolutions involved posting more frequently on my blog ..and before I know it, it is already 9 days into Jan when I post for the New Year !!!
I found some more sites with tutorials...
Like this one on Little Miss Momma
Mainly , mine was an attempt at recycling.
I used a cardboard that came with a artist's drawing pad . I had some left over rolls of sponge sheets from over a decade. The maroon cloth is a dupatta that had seen better days .
The only new things are the ribbons and the pins . at the back I glued the ribbons and also stitched them on to the fabric .
So one ticked off from the 'try to make' list ...!! Only thousands more to go...!!
