Shop log & inspiration: New Xenos craft supplies
Today I have a shopping log of various craft supplies from Xenos. You can never have enough craft supplies ;-)…, but I try to only buy things that I use right away. I have already tried and/or made most of the craft supplies in this shop log. I'll tell you about my experiences and hopefully I can inspire you too :-).
Needle Punching Wall Hanger
This set (€ 12.50) was the first thing that ended up in my basket. I see more and more about needle punching and was curious how it worked. I thought this package would be a nice start to getting acquainted with a technique that is new to me.
The contents looked like this. Totally complete.
First I ironed the fabric. Then I placed the pattern on my light-up drawing board. This way I can see the pattern clearly and trace it. This is not exactly according to the instructions, but it just seemed more convenient to me :-).
The technique is very easy. Make sure that you push the needle all the way down, otherwise the thread will keep coming out. I started with gray.
Then I did the other colors, pink and white. I am happy with the end result. It's not perfect, but it was also my first time doing this technique :-).
Crochet your own parrot
As you may have already seen on my blog, I started making jewelry. At Xenos I saw a whole shelf full of things to make jewelry. I was struck by how everything matched so well in terms of color. The tassels, feathers and pom pom charms also all had a silver finish. Very nice, because until now I only had them in gold. When I make silver jewelry, I don't like it if the finish is gold.
Pompon charms (€ 2.49)
I immediately started working on the above articles. I made bracelets and a keychain. In addition to these craft supplies, I also used products that I bought from Action and AliExpress.
