The weather has been very mixed here in the UK - some places getting snow whilst in the South West, we have had a mixture of sun, rain, hail and high winds!! I've not been out much lately as I can't bear the cold! As I am typing this thre is brilliant sunshine but it's very cold out there!!
I've made a few bits and pieces so thought I would show you them.
First of all another felt phone pouch with a cute bird on it. The colour of the pouch is a really lovely deep teal but I cannot get a photo to do it justice!! No matter how I try, I cannot capture the wonderful colour properly!
The background of the photo is a new tea tray that I picked up in the sale in Debenhams. I love it and it makes a great background for my photos!!
The next thing is a very simple heart bookmark - I saw the initial idea on Pinterest on this blog and she also has a template for the heart. I recently bought a set of Sizzix Framelits Hearts so I used one of those for mine!! I used a small co-ordinating heart and a button to decorate mine. (The book I've used is the one I am currently reading!!)
Whilst I had my heart dies out, I made some mini heart bunting from felt and appliqued felt letters to spell the word 'LOVE'. I used natural jute to hang them with as I like the rustic feel it gives to them.
Lastly, I made some felt bunting for my niece as it's her birthday soon. I used an x-cut Pennant die that I bought recently and one of the heart dies again. I handstitched the pennants and dies and then machine stitched them to the bias binding. I am really pleased with how they came out - they are very pretty and as my niece loves pink, I'm sure she wll be thrilled with the bunting.
