Cath Kidston & Felties....

My Cath Kidston bedding collection just got a little bit bigger today after I purchased these gorgeous new pillowcases in the pastel flowers and circus flowers prints. I think they are perfect for cheering up the cold dark days, don't you?

It has been a busy week but during the evenings I have been working my way through the projects in the "Felties" book by Nelly Pailloux. This adorable book features 18 cute sewing projects all constructed with felt. All of the projects are super easy, fun to do and provide great inspiration for when you are ready to invent some characters of your own!

Here are a couple of things I have made so far....

the little babushka.... she is embellished with tiny beads, sequins and a turquoise crochet flower. There is a suggestion in the book to play around with the scale of this one to create a whole family of them, they would be adorable!

& here is the mushroom girl, my favourite!

I found that if you make the felties to scale then they are the perfect size to create little brooches!

Thanks for reading! x
