Flowery Cath Kidston Fabric Makes

As I've joined two swaps I'm in that place where I have been making but can't share just yet.

What I can share is these little treasures, I saw the idea on my new obsession Pinterest and gave them a go.
They are rather sweet and i'm quite pleased with how they turned out, I first saw them here.

My little Cath Fabric Flower Brooches








I have also been making more little lavender mice, I was asked to make these for a customer, but I've popped a few more in the shop as they are quite sweet and several people on twitter have asked me for some.

I've been pottering with cross stitch recently too and I made this little one last week, it's a lavender blossom with a little bee on evenweave stuffed with wadding and beautiful dried lavender.



Not sure where I'll use it yet I like to pop my lavender bags in amongst my fabric stash to keep it all smelling lovely but this one is a little too pretty to shove away in a drawer.

I'm posting my cupcake swap off on Tuesday so I'll be able to share that with you next week.

Loads of lovely stuff! The flowers are beautiful.

Lovely flowers, are they the 'Kanzashi' flowers? There are two types at least I believe. If they are, I first saw them on 'Joggle' website, a video tutorial...but, be warned! There are quite a few craft makes tutorials and you may find yourself overwhelmed with things to make and buy!
I discovered the Joggles site via a link on 'Judys' Fabrications' blog.

Like your mice and lavender bag too, very sweet.
Have a great week,

Sandie xx

Hello Kandi,

Lucy said...

All so lovely! Those flowers actually look fairly simple to make from what I can tell but so effective. And you've given me the urge to cross stitch!!

Yarn, needles and a cup of coffee... said...

Thank you for your lovely comment, Kandi! I did laugh out loud at the 'labour being just like shelling peas'! If only!:)
Oh, and your Cath Kidston flowers are just gorgeous! All that scrummy floral fabric works so well together!
Have a fab day!
