Travelling craft box
It's been a lovely day here, glorious sunshine has made it feel very spring like. As I was sat watching the children play in the garden I realised that I hadn't shared my makes and what I kept from when the travelling box visited last month.
I made 8 items and took out 7 this time. I had a little assistance in choosing as usual!
So my makes were...
I stitched a lot of things this time... My favourite was the friend cushion from a freebie I found on Pinterest.
I changed the thread colours to match the beautiful fabric my friend gave me from the Downton Abbey fabric range and added the cotton lace trim and wooden wooden buttons.
I stitched this little cameo and beaded the edge. It reminds me of a ring I have that was my Nan's.
I stitched a chicken scratch butterfly.
I also had a bit of an experiment with some felt and beads and made this necklace and matching earrings
I also made a crocheted flower brooch, a felt and stitched button brooch and embellished a bag with buttons and machine embroidery.
I'll share my travelling box picks in my next post.
Ps this was written a few days ago when the weather was actually nice. Today has been cold and grey. Brrrrr!
