Crafty bargain

Hello there!

I have been meaning to post about this little bargain I found in one of the Brockis (2nd-hand shop) in Meilen back in June!

I was going through their crafty section (as usual) when I came across this set of pompom makers for 1CHF. Yes, I know 1 CHF!! What can buy for 1CHF in Switzerland these days? (answer: not an awful lot).

The set even came with a set of instructions on how to make pompom animals and I decided to give it a try. It is actually a lot harder than it looks, sewing pompoms together and all the other felt bits/buttons...Definitely not child play (unless your children are naturally gifted). It took 2 PhDs (Mr T and I) to make 1 pompom bunny...

Let's not forget the view of the fluffy tail
Anyhow, Mr Bunny turned out to be a nice little chap but I am not sure I'll be making more pompom animals. The set will be very handy when I start knitting winter hats though!

Have you pocketed a real bargain recently?

Teehee! The pompom is really cute. Yes, if I were you too, I'm not sure if I'll be making more than 1 pompom bunny... OK, unless someone has the use for a pompom bunny :D

Heck, even to use the public toilet will cost more than 1 CHF :(

I can't wait to go Brocki shopping -- I have a date set aside, next week! Wish me luck :D (You just never know what you'll find! :D)
