I've been cutting templates to back some of my letters this morning. Guess which this was for! :) After I've finished the letters, I have to trace and cut the backing. Once the backing is sewn onto the ribbon that hangs the letters, I then fix the letters and choose buttons to embellish at either end. I love these buttons in particular, which I found at Liberty in London.
And sewn in place:
It really is a long process, but I think the result is well worth the wait.
I've also been going back to a hobby I did a long time ago, which was stamping. I tried stamping on linen, which isn't the easiest as it's got such a texture. But I'm very happy with the mobile phone cover I made. It's just a little bit different.
