InstructionsMake your special pattern front piece, cut a backing piece, sew right side together, leave a space to turn it right side (very fiddly). Trim corners. Turn right side out and top stitch, stitch in ditch, stipple! My MOTTO - "there are no rules, only your rules!"

Scraps of cotton from other projects.
What was your inspiration?
I read a lot and I have given a few of these away, Just something to do in between projects. Keep planning to make more but other projects get in my way.
You can make them to suit individuals! Boys, girls, men, ladies, nanna's, teachers, friends, musos, chefs, gardeners, the list goes on!
What are you most proud of?
Everyone who has seen this project is wondering why no-one had thought of it before. These are long lasting and they are pretty.
Just a small gift to put a smile on people's faces that they can use.
Because it is only small friends don't feel obligated to do anything in return which is good.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Just sit and have a fiddle. It is a project that can be fulfilling in between other things.
Christmas is just around the corner - these are whipped up very quickly. Excellent gift for children's teachers or small gifts for stocking fillers.
Just don't forget to take it out of the book when you have finished reading it - I did that and the book went back to the library!
