I’ve signed up to take part in the monthly make being run on The Felt Fairy’s blog.
Although I’m always knitting and making things, I rarely find time to actually do any making for me or my girls so I am hoping that this will give me a much needed kick up the backside!
I left it later than I had planned and can’t believe that tomorrow is February – where does the time go? February is going to be a busy month because we’re going home to
to see family and I have my little girl’s 6th Birthday to plan for as well as my Dad’s! Cornwall
Getting back to the point though, my youngest, just turned 4, is quite a restless sleeper and due to various coughs and colds caught at pre-school, she’s been even worse lately. I find lavender a relaxing scent and I’m hoping that it has the same effect on her, which is why my January monthly make is a lavender bag!
To match the cinder rose, a Farrow & Ball shade, coloured walls in her bedroom, I picked some pretty, soft corduroy for the backing with a darker pink felt for the front and then some other felt off cuts.
Add some odd buttons, the flower templates that I use for my corsages and a heart template that I snipped out, I set to work!
