next a strip of felt wound and beaded, also a small tube of fabric, stuffed, gathered at either end and beaded.
I struggled and broke a needle making this rolled leather toggle, but I do love the texture, and the smell. I remembered making these fire lighters as a child from newspaper, this one is made in posh paper and rubbed with a gold ink pad.
I wired and beaded a bead for a very spiky toggle. I also found some narrow plastic tubing which I packed with threads and pierced. I really liked this toggle and the contrast of textures, I will definitely be returning to this idea.
Finally I went bonkers with some silk cocoon strippings. I wrapped it in ribbon, added some buttons and used scobidou to make a loop for attaching. This is deeply impractical, very frivolous, I'm not sure it's even a toggle- but I do like a little pink stupidity!
On this very theme I am planning a swap for the new year. It will be my blogversary in January and I hope to have a 'Flamingo's for February' swap. This will be a KITSCH swap. So how about it....hands up for a spot of deep winter tackiness!
