I thought this week, I’d have a go at a couple of small projects….the first was the gadget bag kit, that I received from the 1st Mollie Makes magazine. Now a bit of a collectors mag, I think after seeing that it sold for £18+ on Ebay – not bad for a cover price of £4.99.
It was simple to do, just cut out the templet in the magazine and then cut each of these parts out of the felt.
I could have followed the instructions and hand sewn all the pieces to look like this.
However I wanted to give my sewing machine another go. So here is the result
I used black thread so I could see exactly where I was going wrong!? Both Miss A and Miss N love it and they don’t seem to see the wonkyness.
I also wanted to make a few greeting cards.
I had already made a stash of gift tags with vintage buttons, stamps and reused ribbon, after seeing @MsMollylouise’s from a previous #handmadethursday here.
Whilst on my epic trek to find Mollie Makes I came across a magazine, which had lots of button ideas in it, including sewing them onto greetings cards. I think @missielizzieb over at Me and my shadow told me about it, as she knows how much I love buttons!
Well here are the results:
