Earrings

Sorry for the late post. I knew what I wanted to make but haven’t had a spare minute to make it. My son’s girlfriend decided we should try making earrings so we bought the basic supplies. We then decided it may be a winter craft project because so far it has been to nice out to sit inside.

I saw a lot of leather earrings and then found that Cricut made a faux leather. You know if it cuts with a Cricut it will cut better with a KNK. Because I was in a hurry these are a rough draft. I used the red capped blade and should have used the blue or maybe even the fabric. The faux leather has a felt like back and cutting it with the red capped blade resulted in a lot of “fuzzies” that need cleaning up. The fuzzies are hard to cut with a scissors so I may apply some type of sealant to the back to hold them down. They aren’t “awesome” but it was fun trying something new and I will continue to work with the faux leather.
