Anyone playing Candy Crash (show Candy Crush in some apps or game sites) now? I have so many friends who are so addicted to it and play all day all night long. Honestly speaking, the concept and even the game itself is not new. There were Zookeeper, Jewels, Zuem before using the concept. But, maybe because of the popularity of mobile phone games that helps to create this Candy Crash tornado. For mobile application, the highest level is now 215 (heard that it has been updated recently) and it is over Level 300 if you play on desktop. I admit that I am addicted too but not as crazy as my friends. I am now at Level 62 and won’t play everyday now.
When I was brainstorming myself on what to make for this Thursday TBC Crafters Hop, I suddenly remember that I have made ribbon and fabric candies before. So, I pulled out my craft supplies and made these 2 loveys – hard (soft actually) candy and lollipops.
Hard candy – a piece of fabric (I used 3″ x 4″ cotton fabric), some batting, needle and threads
Lollipop – 3 pieces of ribbons (you can use more if you want) of different colors and about 12″ in length each (one of them needs to be about 1/2″ longer than the others), some double-side adhesive tape or rolling tape or even fabric glue or hot glue
Step by step instructions for hard candy: –
1) Cut out a piece of fabric of 3″ W x 4″ L in size, run a line of stitches at the reverse side of the fabric to form a cube. Then, sew the top of the cube and reverse the fabric to form a little long pocket.
2) Run a line of stitches at about 1/4 part of the pocket and pull the thread to gather the fabric, then wrap the thread around that part a few times and tie a knot at the back to form one side of the candy wrap.
3) Put in some batting and then repeat step 2 on the other side of the candy. Use needle and threads to close the bottom of the candy wrap.
Step by step instructions for lollipop: –
1) Heat seal both sides of each ribbon. Use adhesive tape or glue to fix one side of the ribbons together.
2) Roll the ribbons tight to form a wheel and fix the end of the ribbons with tape or glue.
These DIY candies can be good decoration of a theme party. Or, you can add clips or headbands to make lovely hair accessories. Or, simply just add to clothes or handbags for personalization.
So long, are you going to join me for the Candy Crash party?
