sewing :D

I usually only do machine sewing, but since getting into swapbot I have been really enjoying hand sewing again, particularly with felt, I love not having to hem anything :D

Here are a few of my recently finished or in-the-process-of projects from last week ...
^ I made this  jumper for a friend in a swap, it's based on one I made for my doll, but much smaller scale. She loved the fabric, and was pleased with it when she got it :D

 ^ This is a brooch I made as a little extra for a recent swap, I know she loves Matryoshka Dolls and I have wanted an excuse to make a Matryoshka-something for ages!

^ I am also in the middle of making some 'square-bears' hehe.
I love the little eyes, I have been looking for ages to find some flat professional bear eyes at 3mm - so was really happy to find some I really like AND the right scale.

Other news... I went to my boyfriends gig on Friday but it ended up getting canceled - which was a shame, but it meant we just hung with the band in the pub, which turned out to be pretty hilarious... But hopefully the next one wont get cancelled!

My boyfriends band is called Grimace they play death metal, if you are interested you can hear them on myspace here: http://www.myspace.com/grimaceuk
