DIY Felt Wallet

Today, I made a felt wallet following a tutorial by Crafty Gemini and it was super quick and easy.  I decided to embroider a strawberry on the front also. I looked up a few pics of strawberry applique to get a feel for the shape to cut out.  If you decide to do this tutorial, be aware that  undoing stitches on felt is irritating, other than that this was a great, cheap craft; I plan to make many more.

domino nails

I wanted to do a simple nail design, so I decided to do a "domino" look.  I wanted to test out my new dotting tool, so this was what I decided on. I started with 2 coats of Sally Hansens' "Hard to get" then I used  L.A. colors art deco for the black. After I applied the white, I used the thin applicator of the L.A. color to draw the line and the dotting tool for the dots.  It was really helpful to be looking at a few dominoes while doing this.  It was my first time trying this, but I think it looks pretty good, at least on the left hand ;)
