I’ve been stitching intensively for the last two nights. You can see my first trial a couple of post ago where I’ve shown one picture… since then I had to change the process a bit and start again, but at last we have the result – a place mat  for my youngest who loves almost all living creatures and trains 🙂 And loves to eat.

i can'tbelieve i've managed...

have a closer look

Stitching is easy, only getting everything ready for it takes a bit of time: I had to enlarge the original picture (below), cut out all the felt pieces I wanted on my mat and just stitch them all on. Now my older boy wants a mat too, so the same process only with a different theme is awaiting me…

it’s from this beautiful Japanese magazine I’ve treated myself to idees

Looking at this and other Japanese craft magazines I have (I’m gonna share some favourites here with you one day), I get so built up to make things… Once I get another place mat done, I’ve been wanting to make some simple linen ones for all of us, I want lunch bags for my boys, pencil cases, mini pouches, baby stuff and new toys… cushions, clothes…. jewlery! 🙂 Yes…

Will see how far I’m gonna get with my crafty hopes, kids holidays begin from Monday :).  I still haven’t prepared my promised free patterns for you…  but it will come. It will.

btw. if you like fish and don’t mind the soft ones, udder is offering a great give way!

Enjoy your day! x
