I’ve been stitching intensively for the last two nights. You can see my first trial a couple of post ago where I’ve shown one picture… since then I had to change the process a bit and start again, but at last we have the result – a place mat for my youngest who loves almost all living creatures and trains And loves to eat.
Stitching is easy, only getting everything ready for it takes a bit of time: I had to enlarge the original picture (below), cut out all the felt pieces I wanted on my mat and just stitch them all on. Now my older boy wants a mat too, so the same process only with a different theme is awaiting me…
it’s from this beautiful Japanese magazine I’ve treated myself to
Looking at this and other Japanese craft magazines I have (I’m gonna share some favourites here with you one day), I get so built up to make things… Once I get another place mat done, I’ve been wanting to make some simple linen ones for all of us, I want lunch bags for my boys, pencil cases, mini pouches, baby stuff and new toys… cushions, clothes…. jewlery! Yes…
Will see how far I’m gonna get with my crafty hopes, kids holidays begin from Monday . I still haven’t prepared my promised free patterns for you… but it will come. It will.
btw. if you like fish and don’t mind the soft ones, udder is offering a great give way!
Enjoy your day! x
