A crafty guest post from dd

Good morning. Sad about my busted sewing machine, so am handing over to my 10 year old today...

My mum's sewing machine is broken, so she said that i could do a post, cause i have wanted to for A VERY LONG TIME. She said that i have done lots of nice things, so thats what i am going to talk about/show you.

I made all these things when my mum was out shopping somewhere so they had to be quick and simple.

The first thing i made was some flowers as you can see in the pic below.


To make these i had to draw out my template then i had to cut out the template. Scramble through my mums sewing things to find a button. Then i just had to sew it up.



In the pic above I made a apleca (or thats what my mum told me it was). some of the stuff had to be cardboard because we had no fabric in that colour. The flowers are all cut from different fabrics. I still have to sew it or glue it all in place.

Bye bye.
p.s This was fun so i hope i can do it again sometime

Hello, Miss Lace Hearts!

I hope your Mummy's not too sad about the sewing machine. My two girls are really little at the moment but I hope they will want to be crafty like you when they're bigger. Your flowers and little picture are lovely, thanks for showing them to us :)
