made this bear in 3 hours, i rushed to get it finished as he was a Christmas gift, i totally winged it , i had no idea what i was doing but was very pleased with him, i cant wait to make more .....but take my time with them.

made a lovely bag from a arron jumper, i added two flower badges which i made from felted jumpers and matarial with wadding sandwiched in the middle, it worked really well !!

felted jumper bag

i have learnt alot from making this bag, i have made loads of mistakes but hey its the best way to learn
i cut a square piece from another jumper for the pocket and added a few buttons i now want to hand stitch wool around the edge of the pocket to hide the raw edge

lined the jumper with lovely vintage fabric

i loved the cup cake fabric so much i bought it in brown !!!! i have just mastered the art of button making with my little button making gadget (well sort of , they could be better) i think they will look great on a bag..which i will make from a felted sweater, my daughter loved them and has pinched them she wants to give one to her best friend awww bless!!!
i have been spending so much money on second hand sweaters and fabric i have been on e bay all night selling old clothes ...i really need more money I'm running out fast !! I've just been looking at blogs in America , i wish we had thanks giving here it really filled me will joy to read the heart felt stories , i love the way in which everyone reflects and bonds together ....i would love to live in America!!!

Well I've finally allocated myself an area in the dinning room and made a special place for my new sewing machine ooohhh!!! which i should be getting tomorrow. Ive spent a fortune on books but I'm sure they will all be useful .....if not theres some lovely pictures ha!! oh i have received my cupcake fabric this morning i cant wait to turn it into something special for my little girl .
I'm feeling a little deflated today my dad told me he has just thrown out a load of jumpers and my grandads old suits etc, he didn't no it is now my new hobby, my dad is known for hording everything which i love about him , and i also love looking through all the strange things he keeps, but recently mum has been moaning about the amount of rubbish he keeps ...he is now throwing things away which has upset me , its sort of like he is changing and also i will miss all the wonderful things he keeps....don't change dad .
