Picture the scene …. a warm(ish) summer’s afternoon in the summer house at Coombe Leigh. Feeling relaxed – cup of tea, a biscuit (or two!) and some gentle stitching. Then the peace is shattered as two excited furry faces appear ……..
“Mum! MUM!!! M U M ! !! ! Come and see – come and see NOW!!”
“There are fairies living at the bottom of our garden!!”
Not really ! Just the photoshoot for my first pattern for the September issue of the Bustle & Sew Magazine – little toadstool pin cushions – great for those Christmas Fairs, as little gifts or just for yourself. Just the tiniest scraps of fabric and felt, vintage cotton spools, styrofoam hemispheres – and a lot of fun!
They are great Helen!
Adorable! I was following along on instagram and thought just maybe they might be mushrooms!
where the fairies scared?Did those brown beasties frighten them…the Toadstool doors are tightly shut…shhhh if we’re quiet they might come out and say hello!!!
Those are cute!
Adorable! I’m off to rummage through my fabric stash for appropriate fabrics…must be prepared to make a fairy village of toadstool pin cushions come September!
