For the little home, stitch the door and sew the buttons into position first. Then, cut out two houses from the pattern and 1 roof (using a contrasting colour of felt). Machine stitch the roof into place as you sew up the pencil topper. Remember to leave a gap at the bottom to slide the pencil into - then use a clear glue to hold the pencil in position.
For the car you need to sandwich the two pieces of felt together and then stitch the buttons into place - ensuring you stitch through both pieces of felt (front and back of car). Then stitch the car window (just through the top piece of felt) and machine stitch up the rest of the pencil topper. Add a little clear glue to hold the pencil in position.
Right hand click on the template below and save to 'my documents'. Then print out on an A4 piece of paper and cut out.
Yesterday we made gingerbread men and spiders (ice cream and lemonade). Some of the gingerbread men got a little out of hand with big tall tummies while I wasn't watching.
While reading Sarah's blog a little while ago I came across a link for a yummy online shop - Kikki K. Talk about gorgeous things. They are having a New Year's clearance (50% off a lot of things) - I just bought a few things from the sale section to put away for James and Bella.
Also, while I'm sharing links - this has to be my favourite Etsy shop - lots of Japanese fabrics, magazines etc.. Leslie is super lovely too and wraps everything so beautifully. She also stocks these print gocco machines that I'm longing for.
I also love this online store - Ten Little Indians. They have the sweetest things.
Well, I think that's all for today...have a lovely day!
