Another WIP...

A variation on the toy bag/play mat linked to here, and inspired by this, (scroll down and you'll spot it!) to create a felt road applique. Firstly, all laid out as a paper pattern.

Then pinned together in felt and fabric, next... the sewing!

This is intended for one of my nephews as his christmas present, along with some little cars, but it is proving very popular with Luke already. He keeps pointing at in on the floor of my sewing room and saying his favorite word, 'mine!'.




... and how lucky am I?

Suzie Sews won one of the owls in the giveaway and sent me this as a thank you!

It's so cute!






EDIT TO POST
Can I just mention something to all craft bloggers, do you back up your blog?. By backing up, I mean saving a copy of your posts and template on your hard drive. If you don't, I would suggest that you do, better to be safe than sorry.

I love your variation on the play mat - has given me an idea for a little boy I know. But where will I find the time???

Very cool play mat. I need to make something similar, a front garden for a doll house.

That is going to be the bestest play mat ever! I'm sure it will bring him hours and hours of fun.

LK - that's fab. I really need to pull my finger out and make one!!

and no, I don't back up but would recommend it too....my usual lap top has just died (thanks to being accidently whacked by other half) and the hard drive is broken....so in future I am going to back up every thing - including my list of blogs, coz I've lost that too.

Oh the play mate...amazing!!! I recognise that little duck!!!

Ravenhill said...

I can't believe that you are coming up with yet ANOTHER FABULOUS idea! The play mat is just that - sure to please amazing idea and looks to be beautifully done. I also have to tell you how much I adore your owls!

Oh my goodness, what a cute idea!

Florence said...

Oh dear, have just seen your message at the bottom - off to find out how to do that now.

But just wanted to stop by again to thank you for your kind commments about my apron...and even more flatteringly, my stomach. You have cheered me enormously, for I think most of us tend to only see the flaws, rather than the good points in ourselves!
Best wishes to you and your family for a very merry, happy Christmas. x
