Thank you all for your lovely comments on my last post. I am very excited about my first giveaway!
I gave you all a little peek at some felt I had made a few months ago in my last post and said I had a plan to use it as another make for my giveaway (now at 46 followers so I need to get cracking!). Well, after a little time on the sewing machine it has become this...
...a lovely jewellery wrap. I am not going to claim I am an amazing seamstress; there are certainly some wobbly seams here and I have discovered I am not very good with bias binding; but it is very cute and functional.
There are two ribbons for storing rings, two open pockets that are big enough for bangles and a large pocket which seals with velcro for other bits of jewellery.
I added the fabric hearts using bondaweb, as I felt it needed a little detail inside.
I filled it with some of my jewellery so you could see it in use. However, my jewellery will not accompany this giveaway item! It will be empty ready for your own!
I made this piece of felt back in the spring when the crocuses were flowering in the garden and the purple hues inspired me.
Can you see the silk fibres in lilac and rich purple on the purple merino? They are just lovely.
Only 4 followers to go! I want to make a felt rose and I have a birdie brooch to show you for the giveaway too.
Hope you're all having a good week and enjoying as much sunshine as we have been down here (with the exception of today which has been quite drizzly!).
