So armed with a selection of scraps, felt and a bit of linen along with some lobster claw key ring type things and some stuffing I have come up with these:
Now I know that little keyrings are not an entirely new idea, many people out there are making them in various forms but this is something new to me. I usually like to work with larger pieces of fabric so working with small scraps and my machine embroidery foot caused a few choice words to slip from my lips.
This little bundle was meant for my youngest daughter's pre-school team, however on the way to Brownies last night the eldest informed me that it was the last one and when we arrived all the Brownies were bearing gifts for Wise Owl et al. So a quick trip to the supermarket and a mad dash home to finish off 3 of the keyrings resulted in this:
So I now have to make 3 more and a little something for my eldest's teacher - though I'm not entirely sure what yet. I have enjoyed working on these, something a little different to what I usually do and pushing my boundaries a bit more.
