Friendly Plastic Scarf Ring

This was made at my lovely craft group meeting on Monday, after some expert demonstrating from our group leader, Karen. She has been showing us how to stamp in friendly plastic and to use molds and cutters to shape them. There may well be a few more examples up here soon, if I can get the camera to behave! What I like about this is that it doesn't look plastic from a distance but is flexible enough to hold the scarf and won't rust or discolour which is fab. Some of the other things I made will never make it on here as they are total disasters - 'lump of toothpaste' has been used to describe one piece of artwork!!

Talking of the group, a group of us ladies meet up 2 or 3 times a month, mainly to do card-making. Most of the time we do our own projects but other times we have Karen show us a new technique. Sometimes (especially around Christmas) we get very little crafting done and we spend a lot of time chatting and drinking tea. I would highly recommend joining a group if there is one close by. Crafters are just the loveliest people, and even though I was terrified about going for the first time they made me so welcome. Now it'd take a lot to keep me away and I've made some lovely friends.
