ScrapHappy August 2023 | The Snail of Happiness

To begin with, apologies for the entire silence in latest months… we’ve been so busy promoting scraps that I haven’t had time to jot down about utilizing them. There has, in truth, been quite a lot of ScrapHappy exercise and I’m happy to report that the turnover of scrap material, yarn and different crafting provides is excessive within the Snail of Happiness store. There was some lovely scrap material not too long ago…

I’ve additionally made and offered numerous our yarn texture packs. These proceed to be a preferred method for weavers and stitchers to get their arms on all kinds of various yarns, in small quantities, to work with. From the ScrapHappy perspective, it’s good to have the ability to convert unloved oddments of some very odd yarn right into a helpful useful resource. What’s extra, I really like placing them collectively – selecting the colors and textures is such enjoyable.

Nevertheless, I do know that what you actually wish to see is what we’ve been making. I’ve spent a while making scrappy root greens not too long ago (who’d have thought I’d handle to seek out an oddment of beetroot colored yarn?)…

And we’ve run a few mousevaark workshops. These little critters are created from previous socks, felt scraps and random buttons and beads. Though the rice of their bottoms is new, the fibre stuffing is wool waste from processing mills (and we’ve got if on the market, for those who want some). If you wish to have a go your self, the sample is right here.
