A craft project I just finished: this lovely little felt Mushroom House:
I haven’t had the time to do much needlework in recent years, and I had fun fiddling with the embroidery details on this. I just used French knots, lazy daisies, and a straight-type stitch (don’t know the name). It’s just made from felt, a bit of stuffing, and embroidery floss – all things I had around the house already.
Can’t you just imagine fairies coming to play amongst these at night?
It’s small (about 4″ tall), and I’m not sure whether to use it as a pin-cushion or just set it around to look cute. She also has a Toadstool Cottage – maybe I can try that next. I’m already thinking I could make one for each of the girls for next Christmas.
