I got a wonderful treat in the post this week. Look what Jo made for me as my prize for being her "Most Commenty Commenter"
Look at the cute little Sith Lord, couldn't you just hug him?
And his dear little Death Star.
And he really did have cookies too, yummy Marks and Spencer cookies! Thank you Jo I love it!
The Victorian Motto Sampler Shoppe. The picture hasn't quite got the colour right, it's more beige than that. It's gorgeous, and I will have to pick a special project to do it justice.
Pinterest at the moment. (I know, I shouldn't look!)
I was feeling very springlike so I went for fresh zesty citrus colours and I love how it turned out.
Do you want a quick "How to"? Of course you do. You'll need some coloured felt, ribbon, buttons and beads.
I followed the basic method described by Michele at The Scrap Shopppe using a mixture of buttons including some yummy spots and stripes, rather than all the same colour, and adding in some sweet little polka dot bows and three felt flowers, and stitching in grosgrain ribbon instead of chain to hang it by. I'm linking this up to Think Pink Sundays at Flamingo Toes
Aha, but how do you make the flowers I hear you cry! Nothing simpler.
The leaves on the orange flowers were just made by adding a final ring of green fringe.
Want a bigger flower? Cut a bigger strip.
Feeling confident? There are variations.
Phew! This seems to have got a bit long, so I'll save my garden pics for next time!
