A little bit of sewing - embroidery and applique
I wanted to make a little purse to keep some of my sewing bits and pieces in - like my felt balls, which I am constantly misplacing. I found this gorgeous girls dancing print, and printed onto some cream cotton, then embroidered with the machine - I think I'll do it again, but hand embroider next time.
We've also been doing some family sewing. We've finally finished two of the cushions we were making together, which I think I've blogged about before. The children cut and designed (on a toadstool theme), and I machine stitched for them. Here's one:
They all really enjoyed this project, so we'll be doing it again soon. I love the results - just two more to finish off.
For those who guessed, yes, we were making elderflower cordial. I wasn't that keen on the taste, but the making of it was fun (as was collecting the florets). Give me a bubbling pan of jam or jelly any day!
