I’ve been in a crafty mood lately. Just today, I made these reversible shoppers to go on my craft stall.

I used a pattern from Sew Hip magazine and I’m really pleased with how they’ve turned out. If they sell, I’ll be making more, it’s a great way of showing off two contrasting fabrics (I got all four beautiful fabrics from Saints and Pinners).

I also made this beeootiful red felt rose brooch using Marie’s tutorial which came via the Crafty Christmas Club blog.

I’m not usually a fan of any kind of hand stitching (too lazy) but it took me barely 20 minutes, making it the perfect ‘in front of the telly’project. I wore it on Monday and was on such a brooch-wearing roll I wore another one today.

Talk about living on the edge..
In other news, my Beignet is half finished, hope to post pics by the end of the week. x
