Remember this lovely book I bought not long ago from Mandy Shaw of Dandelion Designs
Well I couldn't wait to get on and make some of these lovely things. First up were these pin cushions, I have to admit they are quite cute.
They are a little on the large side, so I filled mine with stuffing and lavender so that they could be used as lavender bags if they were too large for standard pin cushions.
I made a little pouch for the inside of each one to be sure my lavender did not escape through my blanket stitching.
The felt fronts were cut using freezer paper which is a flipping godsend. If you don't own freezer paper and do appliqué you need some, trust me!
Using my softest Felt Fairy Felt I made a few of these.
I'm rather pleased with them, quite simple to make but the hand stitching did take a little while.
This is next on my list, a beautiful cottage sewing packet. I must admit I have almost finished my first one and I am in love!
I have many sewing projects on the go and I keep a set of needles, pin cushion and scissors with each different project, I could fancy making a few of these one for my cross stitch bag, one for my hexie tin and one to live with my sewing machine.
The little cottage I have made is the thing that I am most pleased with so far this year, I promise to share just as soon as it's finished, I am hoping it will be my April Monthly Make.
