Felty Bits and Peg Bag

After a long day at work I have spent a while sorting out my fabric bits and bobs drawer. I have been neglecting my sewing duties and have been absorbed/obsessed with beading.
Amongst my stash I came across some felty bits I was making a couple of weeks ago and thought I could incorporate them into something I had in mind.

Whilst visiting my mam at the weekend I noticed her peg bag was very shabby, and it lives in the main hallway so it is always on show. I decided to make mam a new peg bag this week and thought I would add a little felty cup cake.


By the time I had sorted out my bits I don't have time to complete it tonight but made a start, got the worst bit out of the way - rikrak!! ~ I hate the stuff, but it looks so effective.



My felty flowers (will have to come up with a reason to use these soon).....





I made these little cupcakes and planned to add them to some makeup bags, but one made it's way onto mam's peg bag.



I will finish mam's peg bag tomorrow hopefully, off to watch a film and eat something for now.

Back Soon
