Something I never thought I would be a part of! Considering I only really took up sewing again a year ago, I’m constantly amazed at how much I WANT to sew…..and how much I WANT to make new things! And this last week, I have made my very first, and second, pin cushion!
|Lovely little flower from Penilla’s Journey!|
I wasn’t entirely happy with my first attempt – only because I think I should have used more contrasting fabrics. And then I remembered I had a gorgeous off-cut of the green elephants! So this is what
came of that:
|I’m so pleased I got another yard of this yummy fabric, it’s patiently waiting for me to make Ms Chloe a Summer frock!|
I have contributed the lovely elephant cushion to a pin cushion swap going on over at Oopsidaisi! There are so many A-mazing pin cushions – some people are so damn talented! Anywho….today whilst I was at Spotlight…..I accidentally bought some pretty felt! Have never used it before, so I’m ready to get creative, and make myself something lurvely!
And just on a side-note……look what arrived at my house today:
|This is how the lovely Jewel send her parcels – so pretty!|
|And this is my new stash ready for more pretty girl goodness!|
That’s it for tonight – off to bed!
