Meet Pocket and Floss...



My first attempt at proper sewing - I use my sewing machine everyday on paper projects but this is the first time I have actually made anything completely with fabrics. I was lucky enough to win a kit to make these two a long while ago, I put the kit away in my craft cupboard and only very recently discovered them again, and i had great fun making these. I think I might be hooked on sewing now. They are a bit big to photograph together.


I haven't completely given up on my cardmaking though, I have been busy gardening for the last few weeks, but I finally got a chance to do a couple of challenges this week, this first card is for the Pink Elephant challenge this week which is a fab sketch. I used my new MME pretty please papers (yum!), they are lovely and needed plenty of stroking before I finally cut into them. The photos are a bit dark as I took these really early this morning.

And the second card is another sketch from Card Patterns, well worth a visit as there are some fabulous sketches on the site - oh and on their design team is a male scrapbooker/cardmaker!

that's my lot for today, I hope to do a few more challenges over the weekend.
