Hearts and eggs

After the success of the kits at Christmas, Pickle-Lily and I have designed two new ones. A pink and red heart mix ready for Valentines Day and Mothering Sunday
Red and pink hearts kit
and - really thinking ahead here ...
Easter eggs
Felt Easter egg decorations! It always takes a while putting colours, buttons and ribbons together and we have lots of discussions about our personal favourites. We also put some sweets in each kit - P's idea - I think it is so she can check out them all out first! This is what the finished Easter egg kits look like ...
We also have fun making all the kits up, using the ironing board as a mini production line, a much better use for it than ironing!
I have lots more ideas all buzzing around in my head, it is just getting the time to make them all! Just a short blog today as I am wondering what everyone else is up to over on Handmade Monday - why not go and visit as well?

Crikey - you are so organised! I really like your labels - did you print them yourself? I need to get a new printer and wondered which one you have?

They are a great idea. As to a hand turn machine - I think they are only a fiver in car boots though they may need tlc. I'm really thinking that they are much better for smaller projects.

Wow these are great, I love them. I nearly did some DIY bunting kits for Christmas and ran out of time to sort them but I'm thinking I might this time. Thanks for the award, I've been manic so will be having a look v soon and blogging about it.
