Some extra information
I received quite a few questions about the doiley rings after my post yesterday, so I thought it would be easier to explain with some more photos.
I found two matching doileys at the oppy - the photo above is the doiley that hasn't been cut up yet. Each ring has a hard plastic centre, and I can't work out why there are the three extra rings at the top....
I separated each ring, but then I needed to colour them. I didn't have any fabric dye, so I've used watered down acrylic paint, waited for it to dry, and then applied a clear coat of water based varnish. Of course, this method would only be suitable for items that are not designed to be washed.
I hope that answers all of the questions!
Is anyone else having blogger problems at the moment? I can read all my favourite blogs in Google Reader but when I click over and try to comment, I keep getting the message - Internet explorer cannot open the site - operation aborted... gggrrrr
