My creative space

I'm a little late, but am joining in again with Thursday's My Creative Space at Kootoyoo.

Clockwise from left:

  • thread - DMC Perle 5 in cream for blanket stitching
  • ribbon - narrow satin in cream for making bows
  • felt - pure wool in cream

I'm making some small woollen slippers from Robyn Alexander's Tootsie Toes pattern. The pattern has a button and tie variation - I am making the slippers with satin bows on the front.

The pattern has instructions for some beautiful embroidery. But frankly there is no piece of embroidery that I have ever produced that could be described as beautiful ... so I am dispensing with the stitching. Instead, I am going to make some little felt flowers and sew these on.

Thank you very much Kirsty for hosting My Creative Space. Its great fun seeing what everyone is doing. To see who else is showing their creative space (or to join in), head over here.
