I must have finished this at the beginning of January. I know I was planning on showing it to mum when I next saw her, but then I never did. I think now that mum has gone, you really are the only audience for my makes as very few people are interested!
This is a Michael Powell design, I bought the kit from his stall at Harrogate. I've always wanted to stitch one and so I went with a bookmark as that was within my budget.
The two pictures above show the bookmark with all the cross stitch done. Doesn't look great, does it? All you need to do is add a little magic... i.e. backstitch...
Much better! The kit included the tassel to add to the top, and the felt for the backing.
I just carefully stitched this in place so it was neat on the front, not so neat on the back, but considering no one will ever see it, it doesn't really matter!
I bought a panel and a layer cake of Thicket a while ago. I finally got round into making one of the bunnies up into a simple little stuffie.
I used my Sew Together bag to give you an idea of scale, because of course everyone has one?!?
And here's his back side. Thankfully clean, unlike poor Harry's.
