Decopatch Bear


Continuing with my 'try something new' theme here is my first go at Decopatch. It's really fun, easy and very quick to do. This is how 'Patch' started out in life....



I hadn't seen decopatch before I came across the shop Damselfly Crafts when we were out and about in Glasgows West End last week. I couldn't resist having a go. I even have enough paper and glue left to cover a couple of tea light holders.

The soap making stuff I ordered hasn't arrived yet and I am hoping it hasn't gotten lost in the post (DH is badly in need of a wash).

I am entering Patch into the Cute Daisy May challenge which this week is...Vintage.

Patch is adorable--I love the colors and papers! He would make a wonderful gift. Reminds me of a similar craft project I did years ago. It was layering squares of calico fabric on plaster figures--a cat and a rabbit. What a great project you've made!
Hugs,
April

Hi Liz,

This is really spectacular, never seen anything like it before and never even heard of the technique either.
