Crocodile Planning

At Christmas Rachel showed this book she bought. We decided to make the crocodile. We decided we need to dye some towelling. Months later we are finally ready and so next weekend we shall make our creatures in her new studio. In preparation, I experimented by making (an completely botching) a mini crocodile.

Now I feel I am ready for the real deal and I have all my material ready and primed for action.

Pin Cushions

I went a bit overboard, but they're so easy to make and I can never decide whether yo make them using bright colours or muted greens and browns so I made some of each. My favourite is the one above. I used my all time favourite button which you can't quite see the colour of, but it's a tiny robin egg blue button. Why didn't I buy more of them? I have no idea. Life is a mystery.
