A friend of mine said that she called her 2 girls her" little lady bug" and her "buzzy bee"
and I couldn't resist making purses for them. Ever so easy, made from felt. As you pull the drawstrings the beads become the eyes.
Maybe I will make a tutorial/pattern for it.
What do you think?
I had some great comments over the gingham and my books so I will answer some of the questions here.
The bunny is my own pattern but I am happy to send it to people if they want it.
The Janet Bolton book is from the Embroiderer's Guild website, expensive, £30 plus postage and very good but the writing does not seem to have been proof read properly so some sentences take a bit of understanding! not a criticism but it is an expensive book to have mistakes.
The Alison Willoghby book is good with a pattern in the back for a basic skirt but repeats ideas for embellishment rather than lots of new ideas.
The gingham is from an old school uniform!
