I am so excited to share my finished patchwork. It’s not bad for a beginner.
The pattern can be bought here from Heidi Bears and its well worth a visit.
Now, the pattern is a crochet pattern but I adapted it for patchwork as I was in that sort of mood. But I am going to try the crochet version as well.
The picture doesn’t show very well but I made him nice and dinky. He is about the length of my hand.
I hope you like him as much as I do.
Thanks for visiting my little blog.
I used to love doing cross stitch before I discovered paper crafts and now amigurumi and patchwork, and I still have quite a lot of unfinished and unstarted kits lying around.
This cub picture I started around 10 years ago but I finally finished it this summer.
I’m really pleased with it.
Further to Mums Birthday Card, this was Dads…
I just adore these Tim Holtz birds. I could colour them all day.
Due to various mishaps over the summer I have somehow forgotten to share summer birthday cards.
This was Mums…
I was really pleased with how the flowers came out, so dimensional.
I hope you like it!
Do you reminder a while ago I blogged about some random half-finished amigurumi bits. They looked like this…
Well I finished it, or rather him…
Isn’t he great. I found this fabulous pattern on the internet, search for Amigurumi Elmo. I believe there was a cookie monster to go with him.
One UFO down, plenty more to go.
I have been rather absent recently due to a broken finger, which has been rather more awkward than I first anticipated. The one thing it hasn’t stopped me doing is buying more fabric, which I was going to taken a photo of and then this happened….
It’s been a while since my “puppy” has appeared, so I indulged him with his snooty “I’m not being naughty” face.
Then his best attempt at “I love you Mummy” face.
Then finally what I like to call his “fraggle” face (as it reminds me of Fraggle Rock)
It’s the nose I think. Bless him.
Anyway, I did then get the fabric in…
I can’t wait to do something with them or rather be able to.
Thanks for stopping by.
I have been playing with my selection of teeny tiny pieces of assorted fabric and playing with hexagon paper piecing, which I now love. I wanted to make a gift for a friend, who was having a party and thought a little sachet would be the ideal gift and as I have now given her the gift I can now share a photo.
It’s double sided…
I put rose and lavender inside as I know she has trouble sleeping.
She was very pleased and I am now addicted to hand stitching.
