More bunting

I made this bunting for my sister for Christmas and she sent me a picture today to show it now has pride of place in her kitchen.  It is made from an old shirt, onto which I stenciled a heart print and some fabulous CoCo Land fabric!

CoCo is my sisters cat, and I have named my blog after her.  She is a bit of a diva as you can see from the picture 🙂

I’ve linked this up to the Sew Chatty “Made with Love” link party, as the bunting was made with love 🙂

Cat

Since I was at a loose end on Friday, I decided to make a cat for my friend for Christmas.  The pattern is from a book called Meet Me at Mike’s: 26 Fun and Crafty Projects, which I was given to me as a present last year (I have a little stash of crafty books which I love to look through every now and then for inspiration).

bits of cat

Here are my bits of cat, all cut out and ready to sew.  The fabric is from a charity shop near where I used to work, which had a great craft section at the back.  Below is the completed cat.

I have made another one of these cats which you can see here.  This one was also for a present and I used some lovely Liberty Tana Lawn fabric to make the belly.
