Pencil Holder - A Makeover

I enjoy making stuff from recycled items. So I decided to make a pencil holder from an empty tin can and scrap cloth. This is the outcome

The finished product. Next time I will put some embellishments making it more unique. I know this can be made using paper but I love the feeling and the texture of cloth:)

Handmade Hairclip

Saw a tutorial on how to make Kanzashi flowers about a month ago (here). Used some to embellish my bags but today decided to do some hair clips for myself. Anyway, one of the clips got hijacked by my sis :)

Blue polka dot clip. In the photo is a 50 sen coin to compare the size. At the back, I sewed the flower on the clip and also glued felt to the back to hide the stitches

The 2nd clip

The clips on my model. Thanks sis.
