A little TB craft project

Post by saracat on Fri Nov 09, 2012 5:09 am

I am currently sewing numbers onto the front of 25 TB bags to make an advent calendar for my Mum and I thought I would share the idea with you - I tried hinting to my husband that I would love someone to do this for me but I've given up! My Mum is the lucky one instead!



I am filling each bag with a bead, some are Troll, some are cheaper silvers and glass I have been collecting for a few months. I am still 3-4 short so if you know of any pretty (and cheap) beads on offer anywhere please let me know as time is running out!

Lovely one saracat! Give me a shout if you need any more red white or blue bags, I have hundreds (or shall I just send some to your husband? Laughing). So what will the daily surprises in them be? Very Happy

It will be lovely saracat, your mum will be thrilled. If anyone else wants to embark on a project I've got a supply of little bags - just ask and I'll be happy to send them to you. Smile

I love this idea! My husband would need to be hit in the head with a brick to get a hint, a lot of them are like that. You could always make up another 25 bags, give them to him and say they just need one bead each and need to be completed by December 1st please.

Such a wonderful idea I wonder if my DD's would get the hint if I sent them three bags each. They probably wonder where the beads were.

Or just take his credit card and buy the beads yourself ! Laughing

She has a couple of Trollbeads bracelets but also puts other brands on them. I bought her the 1st bracelet for Christmas 3 years ago so I guess I am to blame for her collection!
