Yet another birthday gift

Continuing on with my recent obsession with rice hand warmers I embroidered this one with a baby deer on it for a friends birthday.

I made this flower by wrapping a long strip of felt around itself in a circle, twisting it over occasionally, and sewing it secure.

I then made the flower into a hair piece by sewing it onto a hair clip.

I also made a simple felt bow hair clip.

Purple purse gift

I made a couple of gifts for a friends birthday. In an effort to be better at using zips I made a little purse out of this purple silk and added the button detail to it.

I also made some mulled wine flavour teabags using spices like cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and tied them in pieces of thin material and put a cinnamon stick in for a bit of variation.

The purse turned out rather well but I still need to practice using zips. Luckily I can get them for 10p each from the local carboot so I have lots to practice with.

Birthday Presents

The other week I went on a creative frenzy making mini hand warmers for people as presents.

The first two I made were for Kitty. I simply got some rice, added lavender oil, and sewed up in a little square. I embroidered Kitty's logo and drawings from her blog onto some plain material and felt and then put the bag of rice inside and sewed them up.
