To start, two anniversary cards for my Mum and Dad.
|This one has an old postcard from Capri as well as some Italian stamps (I made this one for my sister).|
|The flowers all over this card are cut from vintage wallpaper. The bird is also wallpaper and the sentiment is a printed from a 1930s card.|
The needle cases that I gave a sneeky peek at last week have been sent and received, so I can now show them to you.
Each needle case is different, though there are some elements, such as the 'love' ribbon and the vintage lace on the edge of the front of each one. The fabrics are mainly samples, with a printed piece of linen featuring something to do with sew and decorated with lace and buttons. Each one is fastened by wrapping ribbon around a button. Inside there's 'pages' made from felt, with a couple of needles, couple of pins and a needle threader.
I made an needle case for the lady who bought them (the lovely Mrs Marmalade) too.
I also finished this rose pillow, which has been hanging around a for a while.
I've added some pictures of crazy patchwork (from Pinterest) to my workbook and started a couple of pages in my scrapbook cum journal (it's ages since I've done anything in either of those!).
As mentioned last week, I've started on my Christmas making. So far, I've put together a couple of felt decorations (they just need sewing and stuffing), the front of a lavender pillow and gathered together bits and pieces to make hanging decorations.
That's it I think! Hopefully, I'll be as good next week!
I'm taking part in Handmade Harbour as usual, pop over and see what everyone's been up to.
