I finished my daughter's socks/slippers! She says they are "deliciously warm".
While it's so freezingly cold Down Under I will be making as many as I can. All depends on whether the op shops will have anymore jumpers for sale once it gets out how easy these things are to make!
I had to wash my slippers that I made out of 100% felted lambswool. I was nervous that they would felt even more and that the flowers might be damaged. As you can see below that they turned out fine. So yes you can just throw them in the wash.
I was reading Kristen's blog So Happy and was quite taken with her cute pincushions. I had a little play with some scraps myself and was quite satisfied with the enjoyment of sewing linen and cute scraps. I love the things Kristen makes and often feel a craving to make some. Her fabric baskets are truly inspiring and she has a tutorial for them :)
Naomi from Nome's brag-a-long knows I like doing self covered buttons and sent me an email with the link to a tutorial. This tute shows you how to make the self covered buttons without buying a kit. You make everything yourself with stuff found in your home. Michele from Michele Made Me is the talented lady of this tutorial which you can find here. My first button made from the tute!
Off to make my bags! When I am done there will be lots to show you. I might take mystery shots of my bags as I make them just to tease you. I have been teased myself by many bloggers! lol
