I've been quite busy today for a Sunday! Mam came to visit for the afternoon and we spent a few hours doing crafty bits and bobs, I helped her with crochet and she helped me with knitting, the first time I've picked up knitting needles in 15 years! Here is the result of that little lesson, a useless square of stocking stitch :D
We spent some time browsing through craft magazines (with plenty of tea and welshcakes) and decided to try our hand at some cupcake pincushions we found in one mag, being the way we are we didn't follow the instructions at all, just looked at the picture and got on with it! Here are our (lumpy) cupcake pincushions
I'll probably make another one next weekend, I have a few ideas for improving the shape that I'd like to try out but I'm quite pleased overall :)
Last but not least I bought some of those self cover buttons in hobbycraft on Friday so decided to make one of those just to see how it looked, I found some Superman fabric in my stash and here it is!
I had hoped to finish this as a badge but the brooch backs I have don't fit the tiny hole on the button and safety pins won't really work either, has anybody made badges with these before? Could do with some tips!
Anyway that's all for this evening, back to the telly!
