actually, mine often look pretty messy on the outside too so maybe I do subscribe to that school of thought??
Bounce was invited to a birthday last week! (I know, so friendly of them) and I wanted to make something so I rummaged in my tiny (promise!) craft draw and found some calico and black thread I bought over, asked what the birthday boy's favourite colour (red) and animal (red backed spider, or a dog) were and used those as my inspiration.
Then I popped to spotlight and grabbed some red thread and a cushion inner.
I free-hand drew the dog and stitched around it.... and it actually looked very tidy on the inside too! I include a photo for evidence. Of course the final photo of it has disappeared but I assure you it was ironed and a proper cushion.
Bounce was happy to give it and birthday mum said birthday boy took it to bed to cuddle that night so I feel it was a success.
joining in with wonderful talents over here
have you voted on which pattern I should make? Please do, I'm going with a majority rule.
love you more than a present made from the smallest of ideas and still well received xxx
