New Makes!!

Good Morning, Afternoon and Evening - depending on where you are!!

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.

Hope you are all having a great week and thanks for stopping by!
