Felties

I received this gorgeous little book from my friend Beki for my birthday back in December and I've just got round to reading it.

I was just browsing through it and I saw a couple of makes I fancied trying, I thought I'd just check my felt stash to see if I had those colours and before I knew where I was I had made two little critters!

 Chihuahua
Panda 
Me to hubbie 'look what I've made'
him 'yeah it's cute, what is it?'
me 'what does it look like?'
him 'a badger?'
me 'NO, it's not a badger, it's got bamboo and big black eyes!'
him ' oh is it a space badger?'
me 'WTF IT'S A FU*%$*G PANDA'
him 'yeah sure it is'
*big sigh* ... that's what I get for asking I guess...


Aren't they canny though?
(A geordie word - meaning sweet, nice etc.)
I thought I'd pop a keyring chain on them as they are quite dinky and I like things to have a purpose, I'm strange like that.


In other news my back is on the mend and I have been sewing once again, I'll show my makes soon.
