The 52MMMC Week 9

Well hello! long time no see so to speak, I am back again with another make for your viewing.

Quite some time back now I took part in a P I F (pay it forward) Giveaway and part of the rules of taking part was that I would go on to host my own P I F Giveaway and send a wee something handmade on to three more people.
As I have now made and sent off these PIF gifts I thought that I would include them in my 'makes' challenge and let you see what flew off in the post recently......

After much doodling, stitching and creating with fabric and thread it was time to put all the pieces together, the easy part really and the part where everything comes together...

finishing off

and hey presto a wee zip purse!

well two wee zip purses..

make that three wee zip purses for three lovely ladies!

I hope they are loved and well used! ;0 x

The 52MMMC Week 8

Well hello to you all! I'm back again with another 'makes' post.
I have been meaning to make a larger version of my oval pin for a while now and thought it would be one of my 'makes' for the challenge, a good place to 'test' out ideas I feel.
I have also been promising my mum one for a while too.....

So inspired by this photo in a magazine recently I was ready to try my 'make'

I gathered together materials and threads that reflected the gorgeous colours of the heather

My mum likes my wee birds and so a wee bird the pin would have

stitch upon stitch

teeny tiny snippets of fabrics in lovely deep pinks and greens

And voila! a birdy pin has been made

My mum has received this wee pin and I shall wait for her to visit
with it donning her jacket lapel, before I show a 'finished' photo of it.
And *phew wipes sweat from brow* she loved it! x

The 52MMMC Week 7

Well I am finally back with another make(!) Yay!
I feel that I'm a bit behind but then I was told that there was no pressure to produce something each week so I shall just keep going until I reach my goal of 52!!

So here for you to view is something I was asked to make by a friend of mine for her mum's birthday.
She gave me an idea of:
colours she would like - creams, pinks and blues
subject matter - beach huts, seaside
and even some of her little girls outgrown old clothes
with a fab pattern on that she wanted included if possible.

So I set too and here is what I made

wee little fishes

can't go without a bird and bunting!

(check out the pier and beach huts to the top right,
I cut these out from the fabric of her little girls outgrown outfit!)

And voila! finished cushion

My friend was more than happy with the finished item (whew!),
so let's hope her mum likes it too ;0
