Homemade gifts for my friend’s baby – Part I

When my friend told us she was expecting a baby, I’ve decided to make something to celebrate her pregnancy. I had some spare towel fabric which was perfect to make a burp cloth. For the turtle I used some scrap felt from another project I’m working on. All sewed together very easily, although the stitching on the appliqué are far from perfect!

First post and first craft project

I made this felt application for a plain orange cushion we bought for our sofa. I cut the tree from a recycled felted sweater I got from a charity shop and then sew it to the cushion. The sewing part was a bit difficult, but i was pleased with the overall result.
