This is me and Julie Arkell at the Hope & Elvis Studio The Harley Gallery, Worksop, Notts.
Here are some of her lovely hand sewn pieces.
Red spotty fabric ...ohh yummy!
Each piece sings.
Vintage charm bracelets.
More flower brooches hung on an old childs dress.
I loved this rabbit brooch ...
and this 'Dear Heart' one.
Every brooch rabbit needs a brooch rabbit house to live in!
Julie then showed us how to make these stuffed suffolk puffs or yo-yos.
This one was sooo beautiful it hopped straight onto my jumper
and there is stayed. :)
So we started off with a circle template...
which we stitched with a small turned hem round the outside
and then gathered and stuffed with the left over fabric scraps.
Little bits of red felt were added in the centre.
Slowly the collection began to grow.
These were some of Julies Tic toc watches
(right twice a day!)
This one decided to come home with me too. Woops!
But look how pretty it looks with my suffolk puff bracelet.
A lovely, lovely day was had by all.
I also got to meet and spend the day with one of my blog followers.
