Felt and French Knots and Favourites

Are not these just the best little creations!

DD1 and DD2 found some felt in my sewing basket over the hols, spied a needle and some perle thread and voila!!!

These are the Flopsy Bunnies - Flopsy, Mopsy and Cottontail

This badge was the inspiration for these.

DD1 wants to put cheeky messages on them.

All their own creations - I just threaded an empty needle now and then and helped a little with the simple running stitch, blanket stitch and (not so easy) French knot (little francophile's eyes lit up when she learnt the name!). After a few goes, they persisted and found that they absolutely Loved Embroidery!!

Here is "Buttons":

Playing with some fabric, a hoop and her favourite toys: her button collection!

"Just call me Button, now Mum"

"Okay Button"

Sweet grin!

Melted heart!
