The brown cord and green cotton were thrifted earlier this year.
It all looked rather plain until I added the train.
Anyhow, I really enjoyed making it and seeing it turned out well has definitely spurred me on to trying out some other things.
a box full of thrifted woollen jumpers which were already felted!!! A huge big thank you to Amy of Seven Stitches who mentioned she had a rather large stash and very generously donated some to me! Thanks so much Amy - I will now have to put them to good use! xx
Maia then realised that we were playing with 'fluff' and decided she wanted to help too. Now to be fair she did really help and filled lots of the pockets whilst I sewed them up. My two little helpers, or is that one little helper and one little hinderer?!
On reflection was it worth it? So I had a lot of 'fluff' to tidy up and had to be the 'fluff' monitor a couple of times but, today, it was definitely worth it. I got all 108 filled and closed - hurray!!!!!
60 done so far with 48 still to go, then there's just the small matter of stuffing them, closing them, joining them and backing them. Easy - if it takes as long as it has done already it'll be finished in 2013!
All packed and ready to go! Until we get back - au revoir! xPS To check out lots of other lovely creative spaces take a peek over here.
