Toppers to Cards

I don't know about you, but sometimes I just like to sit and colour in ! Only then you end up with all toppers and no cards !

I thought I had better make some cards up. All of the images are from a great value bundle at Pollycraft. I hope you like them. x

I have been doing a little bit of sewing too over the last couple of weeks. This Owl Door Stop was from a pattern lent to me by Tracy at The Owl & The Sewing Cat in Eastbourne. Check their web site, or if you are anywhere near it is definately worth a visit. The shop is full of wonderful inspiration for anyone who loves sewing, and classes available for those who would like to learn. Tracy the owner is a very kind and patient teacher, with both Tracy and Lauren always happy to give advice even if it is just to help decide which beautiful fabric to use out of the many to choose from for your next project.

I was recently asked by a friend at the gym to make her little girl some bunting with her name on.
I hope you like it Isla - Sophia ?

Well I'm off to make a hippo now, I'll let you know how I get on with my new pattern!

Take care
