I was reading one of my favourite blogs the other day
and Tania had the best tutorial for little Easter chicks .
I haven't done a lot of work with felt
so I thought I'd have a go .
How easy this was going to be , no seam allowances
no heming , no machine sewing .
It was going to be so cruisy sitting by
the fire stitching my little heart out .
I got a little excited and had visions of myself buying bolts
of felt because this was going to be great fun .
I started on a little design of my own and then
remembered this was meant to be for fun not work
and used a pattern from this cute book .
Well that was when it stopped being fun .
I didn't like the fluffy bits that went in my eyes .
I didn't like the untidiness of it all .
I didn't like not having the structure that I'm used to .
I sort of liked the end result and will probably
have another go at felt animals .
I know lots of others love to work with felt and make
fantastic things , just not me .
I did ask the bunny do a little jig for me like the
chicks did over at Myrtle and Eunices
you really need to see these talented little chicks
they really know how to dance !
This was the response I got got from my bunny
when I just asked for a tiny , weeny dance .
Hmmmph how ungrateful !
