This is one of those magazines that is more like a book and is full of lovely inspiration and beautiful photography! ...just up my street :o)
There is a selection of fabulous Tilda patterns which I definitely want to try.
And there was a lovely bunch of Christmas decoration patterns using felt. This little Christmas tree totally caught my attention and I decided it would make a lovely badge (brooch) for my coat.
I started with a bit of ribbon which I folded in half and sandwiched it between two triangles of red felt and top stitched it on the machine. I left a little opening for the stuffing and then closed the hole up with more top stitching on the machine. I then got my perle cotton and my button box and decorated the front with buttons. I added a safety pin on the back and ta-da the brooch was completed.
I've been out and about wearing it for the past week or so and had several compliments..nothing beats that feeling when you smile and say you've made it yourself! :o)
Until next time....
