That's the way I like it

Hello and hope you enjoyed the beautiful weekend. More felty love for your today and the broach (above) I can safely post now as it was a gift for my dear friend Aimes. I was so chuffed with the sewing in a circle thing as I've only attempted straight lines lol!

A few of you kindly expressed a wish on how I made the hair accessories from the other day and so I took a few pics. The one above was super easy, I made it using the sweet pea felt flowers and leaves from Stampin' Up! and sewed them to the clip (these clips have 3 holes for jewellery but found they are the best for sewing things to them).

The cupcake ones were a little more detailed. I used the smallest cloud die for the cupcake topping and made the bottom case template myself. I put a small running stitch around the lot to keep them together and sewed a button at the top and attached them again to the clips I used before.

Have a great and see you soon with pictures of the craft fair :D

Supplies from Stampin' Up! Sweet pea felt accessories, baroque motifs stamp, versamark and kraft card stock. Other PTI: buttons, cream twine and daily design sentiments. Cloud die from MFT, felt from paper and string, fabric from fabric rehab. Clips from Ebay.
