I've been very busy working on this! Here is what I have so far:
Firstly, I knew I wanted to do something with the fabric I got with my subscription to Mollie Makes Magazine. My swap partner wanted pinks, greens and whites, so this fabric was perfect! I also saw a post on Wild Olive's blog about hexies. One person commented on making stuffed animals with hexies. So I started making hexies to join together to make one big panel of fabric.
I then had a little browse on Pinterest and found a tutorial for making a strawberry pincushion. And then indeed, the scary part came - cutting a circle out of the hexie fabric!
Which didn't go as badly as I thought, phew!
And here is the finished product!
I'm quite pleased for my first attempt, however, next time I won't stuff them quite so much!
I then took to my second love, cross stitch, to make this (pattern found here):
I've ordered a smaller hoop, which I'll decorate with the pink gingham fabric.
I also made a bracelet using these charms:
And I bought a cute little strawberry iron on motif too:
So far, the package is looking good, but I still have a few more items to add in there before it's complete! I hope my swap buddy likes what I've done!
